As in some of the examples above, instead of numbering your tables, give them names of favourite films, or famous film stars. At the table, write guest’s names on specially printed theatre tickets, maybe with a suggested character from the film that they could try to impersonate!

Here are some lovely Art Deco vintage Hollywood style table numbers, and here is a great use of movie posters as table names.

Table décor

Use chalkboard clapperboards as table centrepieces, or create glitz and glamour with tall floral centrepieces and rhinestone encrusted menus!

Table decorations can sparkle with miniature Oscars as centrepieces, menus written on clapperboards and of course, a director’s chair for the bride and groom. Include movie trivia cards at the table to get guests chatting and laughing, with prizes of movie tickets or DVDs for the table with the most questions answered correctly by the end of the evening.

Other ideas

If you are handy with Photoshop, play around with some famous iconic film posters and switch the film star for a mug shot of the bride and groom, with the bridesmaids and best man as supporting actors. Have a look online for some lifestyle cardboard cut-outs of famous film stars, or even hire a couple of film star impersonators. Imagine having Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne at your reception – what an unforgettable photo opportunity!
