July Inspiration Board: Old Hollywood

Old Hollywood is one of the most common wedding themes because it is glamorous, elegant and full of character. A couple with a red and black wedding motif can easily choose an Old Hollywood theme, which is usually accentuated with feathers and pearls. The wedding aesthetic is popularly based on Audrey Hepburn’s fashion trend in Breakfast at Tiffany’s film (1961).

Are you planning an Old Hollywood-themed wedding? I bet this post gave you a lot to think about. There's one thing (actually, make it two things) you should keep in mind to make this theme work -- glamor and feathers. Almost burlesque but in a very subtle and appropriate way.



  1. Tremendous blog post, loads of beneficial information. I am about to show my buddies and ask them what they think.
    As everybody is aware of the fact that western culture has highly influenced our Indian culture. Party is the trend which we Indians have imitated from western countries. India is a developing country and so is its culture.
