Cinema style room decoration
We style the wedding cinema hall according to the chosen scenario. To recreate the magical atmosphere of the film festival you will need a red carpet, a large screen, Oscar figurines, a slide of glasses of champagne. If the budget of the wedding allows, then rent a cinema, where it is possible to organize a banquet, watch a movie, solemnly present the figurines. If there are not enough funds, then use mobile screens, film projectors, and hand the figurines on an improvised stage.
If the wedding is organized as a movie, then you need spotlights, cameras, a director's chair, a clapperboard, to create the appropriate mood. When styling a wedding for a particular genre of cinematography, use bright accents of decor that clearly characterize the movie that you will play.
For example, for a gangster movie wedding, we recommend using fake revolvers, posters with photos of the bride and groom in style «reward announced», vintage fringed tablecloths, men's hats, playing cards.
The cinema’s invariable attributes will add an additional cinema style to the holiday: wedding invitation cards with numbers like those of movie tickets, movie posters with photos of newlyweds, film frames, popcorn, Coca-Cola bottles, wedding presentation.
