The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

With that quote alone, this theme can be perfect for a wedding! It’s a great love story and, as long as you avoid the can-can dancers and other, let’s say, not-as-romantic aspects of the film, you can end up with a beautiful wedding based on this film! Main colors should be red, gold and black.



This photo is from, and I love the idea of putting this behind your head or sweetheart table! The best part is, if your photographer is skilled at handling lights in their pictures (which they absolutely should be), you could end up with some great pictures with it lighting up behind you!

Please put both of these on your tables. There’s a song in the move called “Elephant Love Medley” and I’m pretty sure if you counted, they say some variation of the word “love” about 20,000 times, so these elephants will be cute and fitting for your tables! Find them on Beau-Coup. As for the centerpieces, it has everything we need for this theme: red roses, black accents and some feathers to round the whole thing out. Find them on Project Wedding.


I love these! They’re just a tad too expensive to be favors for each guest unless you have a super small wedding, but they could be special gifts for your wedding party for them to remember this experience they had with you and your man. They’re classy, elegant, and perfect for this theme! Find them on Amazon.


I was struggling with a cake for this one, because many cakes based on this movie or close to it involve legs and corsets in some way, and that’s not what you want for a classic, romantic wedding. That’s why I LOVE this chocolates and strawberries idea from Indulgy. It’s a healthier option, too, so you really can’t lose with this gorgeous array.

And I know this is now the THIRD time I’ve used this venue, but since it’s still a perfect option…

The Carlyle Club in Alexandria! I promise they aren’t paying me to use them as my venue so often, but this place is just so perfect because of how much you can manipulate the lighting and how you can transform this so many different ways. You could definitely turn this into your very own Moulin Rouge from Paris in 1899! I love this venue. Is it weird that I want to go there and play with lights just to see what I can get it to look like? I’m willing to bet I could make it work for almost any theme; it’s just that versatile.


Remember to “like” below so I know you’ve been here! Comment with your own thoughts, and I hope to see many of you ladies at the Greater Virginia Bridal Show on Sunday!
