11 Wedding-Planning Lessons We Learned from Movies

weddingIt might not come as a shocker to you, but around here we love wedding movies. From the romantic throwbacks to the crass comedies, our affection for the wedding-centric runs deep. And while they’ll always be familiar friends to cozy up to, wedding flicks can also be a legitimate source of inspiration for brides-to-be. From décor, to vows, to wedding dress aspirations, cinema can offer some important matrimonial lessons. To start, here are eleven lessons we’ve learned from some of our very favorite flicks.

1. Father of the Bride: Five months is a tight timeline for a wedding — even with an uber fabulous wedding coordinator.

2. Wedding Crashers: Every DJ playlist should include the song “Shout” (preferably played at the end of the evening)

3. Bridesmaids: Don’t eat Brazilian food before your bridal fittings.

4. Sex and the City: A white vintage suit can be bridal (and endlessly chic).

5. Love Actually: Be wary of enlisting friends as your wedding photographer or videographer.

6. The Hangover: Make sure your groom’s bachelor party takes place at least a few weeks in advance of the wedding.

7. My Best Friend’s Wedding: Do not lick that ice sculpture. Nope, don’t test it! We’re serious.

8. Sixteen Candles: Politely decline when someone offers you a muscle relaxer on your wedding day.

9. The Princess Bride: Make sure you approve of your officiant’s, ahem, style of speech, before the wedding takes place.

10. Sweet Home Alabama: Rain on your wedding day? Don’t fret — it’s majorly romantic.

11. When Harry Met Sally: Coconut cake can get soggy. It’s really best keep the sauce on the side.

What is the general theme or feel of your wedding?

Callas & Feathers

Is it formal, country, garden party, backyard BBQ?

County Lodge Reception

Wedding Bouquets

The Bride had a Bright Bouquet to stand out against her gown while the Attendants Bouquets were softer hues.

You may want your
arrangements to match
your color theme
or use a mix of
complementary colors.

Is there a flower you just love and have to have?

We’ll see if it’s in season and budget friendly and also suggest some money saving alternatives.

Size and scale of the pieces should also to be considered.

A large venue will need extra height and bouquets appropriately proportioned for the bride and attendants.

Alexis and Ryan’s Wedding
Hingham, Massachusetts
on a Beautiful Sunny Day!

Alexis, who loves orchids and hydrangea (especially the blue ones), chose slate blue for her bridesmaid dresses so we used green hydrangea accented with blue thistle for their bouquets. .


As you can see, the green hydrangea really stood out against the slate blue.



We added blue and white hydrangea as an introduction to the theme for the wedding reception flowers.



For table centerpieces, Alexis chose the high/low look which added depth to the high ceiling room. The tall arrangements of dense blue hydrangea combined with green amaranthus were made in clear plastic dishes filled with oasis. These were placed atop 24″-high pilsner glasses filled with green orchid stems and water to reflect the light from the votive candles
