Recreate the scene at the Seine by hiring portrait artists to set up easels and paint portraits for your guests during the reception. All the while, have a few strolling musicians playing romantic tunes. For your first dance, why not chose Edith Piaf’s bittersweet classic, “La Vie en Rose?” Or how about Gershwin’s “An American in Paris?” If you’re having a DJ, have him play Piaf, Jacques Brel, and all the great American jazz greats who made their name in France. Favors for all guests? I love the idea of giving away pocket-sized French cookbooks, mini bottles of French wine tagged with a personalized wedding label, or small vials of French perfume or cologne placed on each guests’ plate.
