In honor of the 10th Anniversary of the beloved movie “Titanic”, consider a romantic, Titanic inspired wedding fitting of the 1912 style and culture.
If you live in Missouri you can have your wedding at the Titanic museum – which is a replica ship that features some of the greatest details from the Titanic. Of course, we are not all that lucky. Try finding a venue that has old-fashioned architecture – and don’t forget a grand staircase! You could always have your reception on a boat for a beautiful setting.
Put your men in sleek black tuxes, and find a beautiful A-line dress for the bride. To make for Titanic scenery, use lush colors such as navy, deep reds or purples, and gold. Create a formal setting by using chandeliers and candelabrums for lighting. And of course, use roses in your floral arrangements in honor of Rose.
As for entertainment, go with a string quartet to play during your ceremony. As the guests move to cocktail hour and the reception you can provide other entertainers for them, such as dancers or set up some card tables for your guests to play.
A formal dinner should be served with multiple courses. Records of the last dinner in the First Class dining saloon show that dinner was served in 10 courses. While you may not want to keep your guests seating quite that long, you may want to add wine with each course and end with fruit and cheeses followed by port. Cigars were smoked following the meal. Servers dressed as cigar and cigarette girls passing desserts would be a nod to that era.
Turn this historical event into your big-day event! Do you have a favorite part or details from the movie that you would incorporate into your wedding?
