The movie "Phantom Thread" was based on the House of Woodcock (a famous dress designer) in the 1950s and the love of his life. It is a love story. It won an Oscar for best costumes in March 2018. While the movie had a little bit of a dark twist, it had some intriguing aspects we thought would create a unique wedding inspiration.
Quotes from the movie are used in decorative frames. "[He] has made my dreams come true and I have given him what he desires most in return. Every piece of me" "There are things I want to do, things I simply cannot do without you". The invitations were designed to look like hanging clothing tags and include the verbiage from fashion houses "House of Hahn" and "House of Carver" the invitations and a delicate sheen and included a little lace - again playing off of fashion houses need and usage for various fabrics. The menu was designed to mimic the invitations. Place cards were designed to look like the tag stitched inside of clothes and held on thread spools still containing thread for a pop of color. In the movie the main character states that he used to hide things in the linings of clothes, things only he knew were there. In the making of clothes, he did the same: he put the name of his love inside a dress he made for her. In this shoot, the groom had "Stitched to my wife" inside his jacket. In the hem of her dress was "stitched together for life". Both included the wedding date. The bottom of the cake was designed to mimic ruffles on a dress. It was also adorned with the same "H" as found on the invitations for House of Hahn (the groom's last name and bride's to take once the houses were joined in wedded bliss) Other treats included dress shaped sugar cookies hanging on tiny hangers The bride and maid of honor's bouquets were actually hanging hoops to mimic handbags. All other decorative aspects of the wedding were based on a fashion house such as. dress forms, thread, ribbon, thread spools, bobbins, lace, other materials, buttons etc.
