Choosing a theme for your wedding helps set the entire planning process on course. Creative couples can incorporate their theme into all aspects of the wedding, including food, clothing, activities, table decor, take-home gifts and music. When choosing a theme, the couple should consider something that represents their interests and their relationship. Consider what you spend your time doing, how you bond and what your shared passions are. If you are both cinema enthusiasts, creating a movie themed wedding is a fun way to celebrate your interests while you are celebrating your union.

The most logical place to have a movie themed wedding is, of course, in a cinema. Many movie theatres can be rented out to host weddings. Compared to newer theatres, historic theatres are smaller and generally have more charm and detail to them. Research old theatres in the area in which you plan on getting married. Ask if you can announce your ceremony on their marquee. Consider walking down the movie aisle while your guests are all seated, and having the ceremony in front of the screen.

Play up the theme by serving "cinema food." Have a sweet station that consists of boxed candy. You can purchase old-fashioned popcorn boxes and rent a popcorn maker. Provide a selection of different toppings. Hot dogs and hamburgers are classic theatre food. You can use gourmet meats, buns, cheeses and sides if you would like to serve a fancier meal.

Give your guests a taste of what's to come by making your invitations reflect the silver screen. Incorporate images such as film reels or cameras. You can create a motif incorporating the famous pink stars on Hollywood Boulevard. Include movie tickets or strips of film reels for a fun addition.

Provide props for a Hollywood inspired photo opportunity. Bring in oversized glasses, feather boas, director's chairs and film reels for your guests to pose with. Have your photographer set up a station where everyone can be captured looking like a star.
