Have you enjoyed Hungarian wedding week? If you missed the modern Hungarian wedding, the retro styled shoot, the traditional Hungarian ceremony or yesterday’s guide to getting married in Hungary, be sure to take a peek!

It’s been a pleasure discovering more about this hospitable country and its traditions. Here’s hoping that this week’s focus has inspired you to take a trip to beautiful Budapest or check out the heavenly Hungarian countryside.

 

To finish Hungarian wedding week, this week’s Friday Five is all about The Grand Budapest Hotel wedding inspiration! Five wedding themes and ideas inspired by the fabulous Wes Anderson film. If you missed it at the cinema, it will be out on DVD next month. This colourful, quirky movie might not shout wedding inspiration but the sweet hues, carefully considered graphics and darling details seen throughout this magical movie could certainly inspire an enchanting wedding theme.

 

 

Pink and gold palette

 

The stunning frontage of The Grand Budapest Hotel is decorated like a layered wedding cake, in a pretty blush pink and gorgeous gold palette which could add a little nostalgic, old-world sophistication to your day.

Typography

 

Wes Anderson is renowned for paying particular attention to the style and arrangement of graphics and fonts within all of his movies. Take inspiration from this focus on reoccurring details and use the same font, motif and/or typeface throughout your wedding stationery and decorative details to create a lasting theme.

Pink and red palette

 

Don’t shy away from pairing bold colours together at your wedding! Pink, red and purple hues worked wonderfully together throughout The Grand Budapest Hotel movie and if you use mainly ivory or neutral tones as a background, then hot pops of colour can work together effortlessly.

Mendl’s Courtesan au Chocolate

 

Mendl’s is the premiere patisserie featured throughout the film. They create legendary cakes that are enjoyed by all at The Grand Budapest Hotel, the most famous of which is the Courtesan au Chocolate. This lavender, pale green and pink choux pastry tower arrives in a pastel pink box, tied with sky blue ribbon and looks divine! If you want to have a go at creating your own Courtesan au Chocolate, the short film below shows you how! Or for a more simple take on the idea, be inspired by these delicious desserts and Mendl’s packaging.

Key to your heart

 

The main character in the film is a part of The Society of the Crossed Keys (a society for concierge staff) and the crossed keys symbol is used throughout the movie scenes. A vintage key theme is a simple idea that is easy to incorporate and adds charming touches to a wedding day.
