Getting Married – Casablanca Style

Published March 31, 2015 by lynn k scott

A less-known tidbit about me is that I am a certified wedding planner.  I really would like to pursue this as a full-time career one day.  Right now, I offer some planning solutions and have planned and executed a few weddings for friends.

Part of my certification was to plan a themed wedding.  We were given some parameters and the following was the outcome of the assignment.  One day I hope to make this particular themed-wedding a reality.

Wedding Theme:  Casablanca

  • Wedding can take place outside; reception inside
  • Facility has a fireplace, stage with a piano, tables/chairs for reception on-site, dance floor, full kitchen and raised area for buffet.
  • Groom’s Attire:   white jacket tuxedo with black pants
  • Bride’s Attire:  vintage-style wedding dress
  • Music:  Piano player and singer
  • It’s not the typical wedding. In addition to the couple dressing up, the guests also will have the option to dress in zoot suites, pinstripes, feather boas or similar 1940s attire.
  • The outside has an arch that can be decorated and rental chairs placed outside for the ceremony.
  • This venue has a stage, setting up a screen and playing the movie Casablanca during the cocktail hour would be relatively simple.  Perhaps serving popcorn and/or nuts during the cocktail hour would be a nice accompaniment to the movie.
  • Martinis could be the signature drink for the evening. Beer and wine would be served for those who aren’t martini fans.
  • Waitstaff could be dressed in tuxedos and wear fez hats to bring in the Moroccan feel as that’s where Casablanca is located.
  • Everyone knows Humphrey Bogart smoked cigars in the movie, so there needs to be a smoking option, which this venue allows.  Maybe purchase a box or two of cigars to be placed on the bar.
  • Favors could be candy cigarettes.

That’s a quick snapshot of my Casablanca-themed wedding (created in February 2010).  This presentation earned me an “A” for the assignment.  The venue I chose is a local venue that could accommodate this theme.
