Guest Post from the stylish folks at Beau-Coup Favors

Ahh, engagement season, that magical time of year when many newly engaged brides-to-be are eagerly planning their dream weddings. Here at Beau-coup, we’ve seen an emerging trend that we love – using romantic movies as a wedding theme. If this trend sounds like your style, here are our top movie theme picks to help you get started!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Style, elegance, and classic good taste set in New York City – this theme has it all. Best of all, it’s based on a love story! In it, a young country girl transforms into the epitome of high society class and finds love in plain sight. If this sounds like your love story or your style, it is fairly easy to plan. Show off your style with elegant touches like gourmet food, crystal and china place settings, and of course, Tiffany blue favors like these engraved rhinestone bracelets.

Twilight

Intensity and passion are the perfect words to describe this theme, which is accentuated with contemporary pops of black, white, and red. After all, it’s a story about fighting your way to death’s door and beyond for your true love. The Twilight movies are set in the wooded areas of the Pacific Northwest, giving the theme an earthy and supernatural feel. Decorate with hanging tissue pom poms to highlight that mystical atmosphere.

Up

The much-beloved story about love and living life to the fullest has become a wedding sensation. If you and your sweetheart are outgoing and adventurous, this colorful theme is best for your larger-than-life personalities. The best way to accessorize an Up-themed wedding is with whimsical items and lots of color. Have a guest book so people can leave well wishes and fun pictures, and don’t forget to add in balloons! When it comes time to wind down, these cute classic gumball machines make great guest favors!
