Cool Weddings: This actress had a ‘Planet of the Apes’-themed wedding!

Movies are fast becoming an increasingly popular source of inspiration for couples who want to have a unique wedding. Last month, we told the story of a Harry Potter and Star Wars-themed wedding. And for this post, it’s gasp “Planet of the Apes”.

American actress Judy Greer revealed earlier this month at a late-night show about her less-than-traditional wedding theme for her big day in 2011 with TV producer husband, Dean Johnsen.

According to Huffington Post, she said, “During the cocktail hour, we had the TV screens in the bar [with] the movies playing. We had ‘Rise [of the Planet of the Apes]’ playing on one screen and then the original, obviously, ‘Planet of the Apes’ playing on the bigger screen.”

Apart from movie screenings, there was also some funky decor and a really interesting gift.

“I surprised my husband and bought this really beautiful…porcelain cake topper, and instead of a bride and groom, it was a chimp bride and groom,” according to E online.

“[As for the present] I got him a vintage Rolex watch and I got it engraved like you do, but I got it engraved ‘ape shall not kill ape’ on the inside of his watch because I knew that’s how he would know that I really loved him,” she said. “Like if I just put ‘I love you’ or our initials or the date that we got married he would be like, ‘That’s great honey.’ The engraver, was like, ‘You’re crazy!'”

Well, it’s not hard to understand why. Appropriately, the actress will be starring in the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” slated for release in July.
