So, who saw ‘Skyfall’ this weekend? We’ve been so busy that we haven’t yet, but inspiration from the film is sweeping the nation. Daniel Craig stars as the always dapper 007 agent in the latest of one of the most classic series in cinema history. Emoting all that is rich, glamorous, and a little bit dangerous, nods to the Bond lifestyle can be added to your wedding.
The obvious would be to dress your groom in the famous Bond tuxedo, which is always a good choice for a black tie affair. A sweet way to incorporate the theme is to gift him a gorgeous designer watch as a wedding present (hint- you could get it inscribed with your monogram and wedding date or a favorite quote). Instead of a limo, rent a classic luxury auto as your ‘getaway car.’
As for bridal fashion, the key is to look timeless. Stick to black and white with pops of red, complimented by gold diamond jewelry. Hair can be swept up in an effortless updo to show off chandelier earrings. And did you see those Valentino shoes? We’re kind of obsessed.
Use the Vesper, a vodka martini which was first introduced in the Bond movies, as your signature drink and name it ‘Shaken, Not Stirred.’ The menu could feature cuisine from some of the countries seen in the films, like Britain, Thailand, Jamaica, Greece, or Turkey. In addition, a cigar bar for the men (if your venue has a smoking area outside) would add a luxurious touch.
Our tips? Think sophisticated style to avoid being too “theme-y.” ‘Casino Royale’ is a great movie, but we wouldn’t recommend decorating with roulette tables and poker chips. Gold charger plates easily add glam to table settings, and deep red roses are always in style. And don’t forget to leave your guns at home 😉
