When you rent Casa Real, you can play with some of the best wedding ideas for extra glamour and style. Think of beaded curtains and an elevated stage – conveniently provided by the venue – on which a band, a singer, or a alluring saxophone player can play on.
Your wedding’s art deco is crucial to creating the wedding vibe you would want to project and receive. If you rent Casa Real for your wedding, you can add to the beauty of the venue by focusing on table design. The roaring 20’s is all about feathers, confetti, and sequins. Your color theme should be close to the naturals – some browns, blues, and greens – which are best contrasted with a dramatic flair of red, white, and black. Accessorize your decorations with what the roaring 20’s stood for: gold and silver.

You can also consider renting an old phonograph that still works and have it play legitimate 20’s tunes that will definitely bring everyone back to the glory of era’s past.

Imagine the spotlight you as a couple will get as you dash through the ballroom in a lacy gown, a feathered veil, a smashing top hat, and a luxurious cane?
Enter and leave with a vintage car

You can also get creative and tie cans behind a vintage Beetle. The classic “Just Married” sign at the tail of the car will also add a hint of cuteness to your wedding.
Or maybe a kalesa
