Moulin Rouge: Stationary

I’m back! I apologize for the delay in posts, but I’m back again with some great wedding stationery ideas for the Moulin Rouge- inspired wedding. I will begin by talking about the “Save the Date.” The tone of the wedding begins with your “Save the Date” so I thought you could use the song, “Come What May” from the movie to inspire you. I created a template using a movie still from the movie seen below. I chose a picture that shows the main colors that I will be using for the entire wedding—red, black, and blue. I’ve seen a lot of “Save the Dates” and many couples really like to personalize it. I even thought that the couple could take a picture in that kissing pose and use Photo Shop to place their own photo to the “Save the Date.”
Next is the invitation! I have included a picture of blue paper that, I believe, perfectly mirrors the dark blue sky from the movie. I thought that the blue picture could be used as the envelope for the invitation. Then, I decided to incorporate the black and red using a damask pattern to continue the deep, dramatic effect. I used a dark blue font on the invitation and to highlight the dark blue, I wrote the names in black.
Finally, I added a picture of a place card idea and an idea for displaying table numbers. I thought that a great way to bring blue to the table would be to hand out stems of blue hydrangea flowers and tying a small piece of paper to it, indicating the name of the guest and the table number. That way, when the guests are sitting at the table, the place cards will add blue to the décor. Also, because the movie Moulin Rouge is not only set in France, but there is a lot of Hindi elements to it—Hindi elephant, the play was set in India, etc. So to add the Asian flare to the table, I thought it would be creative to put the table number on black folding fans, instead of the traditional table number cards.
That’s all for today, but come back next Thursday for great ideas on attire for the bride, groom, and wedding party!!! Thanks for stopping by…
