A Moulin Rouge Theme Wedding!!!
Posted: May 8, 2006 5:12 AM

It has came down to it! And it is going to be my final answer! I want a Moulin Rouge Theme Wedding. I love this movie, I love the music and I love the costume. I mean --- I'm not going to have my bridemaid wear the revealing cloth like in the movies or something like that but ... you know? Something with cosset (how do you spell that?).

Now ... everything is gonna have to change --- all that I had in mind in out in the trash. Which is ok ... coz I havn't really brought anything yet and I have 3 years to plan. heeheehee.

I am going to have my dress made, I don't care what any one say and how dangerous it is going to be. The lady that made my prom dress will made it, so I trust her. You know the last dress Nicole (Satine) wear before she died in the movie --- That's the one. The color of the wedding will be red -- which I have no objection because I love red anyway. And the Bird Cage Veil (that I asked earlier) will fit with the theme perfect!

And I thought that the background for the ceremony kinda like this (just several heart on top of each other like the picture --- notthing TOO fancy). No "Moulin Rouge" wording, of course. Our location have the little circle stage anyway --- PERFECT!

You guys have any idea what else I can do with this theme? Or do you think it is WAY too chessy and tacky to use?

I love this theme!  I saw an article in Modern Bride a few years ago about doing different theme weddings and they mentioned Moulan Rouge.  I'll try to find it.  One thing I think they said that went with the theme is try to incorporate lots of French food--serve foi gras, escargot, and champagne.  For decorations, put up giant vintage posters, or use a screen to project them onto walls, of French turn-of-the-century art or Moulan Rouge posters (I've seen them at Bed Bath and Beyond.). Or you could use postcards with French paintings on them as escort cards.  Don;t forget the shots of absinthe! Your wedding sounds like a lot of fun!

There is an episode of "Who's Wedding Is It Anyway" where a lady had a Moulin Rouge theme , I think that's the show it was on.

I've thought about having an Absinthe ....

Then I did the research. Absinthe is ILLEGAL in United State!!! It was so disappointed. I thought about using a Magarita instead --- since they're both green.

Great idea! I love that movie!  If it is in your buget, it woulod be neat if your bridal party can learn the Tango de Roxanne (maybe just have the music without the words, and make it a little less racy for grandma). You could do elephant placecard holders: http://www.claudiasmementos.com/SAB278.asp

Have your first dance to Come What May :)

Maybe you could have a projector show silent scenes from the movie throughout the reception.

Make your cake look like a stage...On each tier have fondont cascaiding down like theatre curtains.  You could even have a little tophat as your cake topper.

Don't forget to have lots of fablric draped everywhere!

And you could word the reception cards "Join us for a 'Spectacular Spectacular' reception..."

Ok...I'm sure I will think of more later!

Actually, there are some legal forms of absinthe in the US.  It's not the true form of absinthe with the wormwood, but it's pretty close.  Love the other ideas people have been posting!  Maybe you could enter your reception on a trapeeze!  (OK, getting carried away!).

Maybe your flower girl could dress up as the green fairy.  :)

 And please no on the escargots.  They are just rubbery boogers.

Sounds like a fun theme!

I'd say use Midori instead of absinthe.

I thought it wasn't illegal to have absinthe here, just to sell it, so you can buy it online from Europe.
