Fantasy Wedding Themes – Game of Thrones

I do not know about you, but I’ve been deeply indulging in Game of Thrones. And I know there is no new episode until June 1st, so I am going to write something different today. For me,  the most memorable scenes in the series are Red Wedding (I still haven’t recovered from it) and Purple Wedding (King Joffrey finally died).

If you love a little mystery and enchantment in your day-to-day life then you may just wish to bring that same magical flavour into your wedding! There have been numerous big blockbuster films over the last few years that have really homed in on this style, such as ‘The Hunger Games‘ and ‘Twilight‘. We love how they can bring a sense of drama and theatrics into a wedding venue, it’s simply just a case of either letting yourself completely go to town or choosing a watered down version; the choice is yours! So here are a few ideas that you need to consider to get the look just right.

The Bride– This has to be one of our favorite parts of such a theme, it’s a look that every lady has to admit looks gorgeous, long loose curls and floral garlands will give you that charming, elegant look. Don’t even forget about that gorgeous dress with all that beautiful detailing and ruching. While we understand that such a dress may cost you an arm and a leg, it would be nice to copy some of the detailing, but go for something not quite so dramatic.

The Banquet– We say the word banquet because it is exactly that, make sure tables are covered in lavish drapes of fabrics, candles, wine goblets and of course a feast to suit any mans hunger pains. If you’re looking to keep to a tight budget then why not try going OTT with the cake and keeping other areas more bare.

Location– Think of the rustic outdoors, the style needs to be almost medieval with long wooden benches set in beautiful woodland. Use drapes of fabric and fake fur to decorate seats and use tiny fairy lights to achieve that mystical fairy tale look.

Evening Entertainment– This is where you can really impress; get creative and imaginative with something a little different. Think circus performers, jugglers, fire-eaters and even stilt walkers. Again if you want to keep costs to a minimum then consider fun card games and other board games that guests can immerse themselves in.

Top 3 Alice in Wonderland Wedding Ideas

We recently blogged about our love for movie inspired weddings, but today we’d like to present ideas for a rather special children’s classic that we are sure everyone knows the story to. Alice in Wonderland may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you are looking for something a little whimsy then it may just be the perfect scene for you. We love the idea of a day filled with crazy centerpieces and a fairy-like tea party.Whimsical Alice In Wonderland Wedding IdeasClassic Alice in Wonderland Inspired Wedding Decorations

We love this offbeat couple their whole wedding concept and the detailing, which is fine-tuned to suit their personalities perfectly. Hope this gives you some magical inspiration.Fantastic Alice in Wonderland Wedding With Rabbit Teacup and Centerpieces Details

Depending on how mad you want your tea party to be consider doing things a little boho, think of relaxed dress wear teamed with theatrical make-up for the wedding party or enchanting accessories that will wow all your guests, such as quirky clocks and teapots.Rustic Whimsical Tea Party Themed Alice in Wonderland Boho Wedding Inspiration

Don’t forget to also consider your color palette we love how the couple have incorporated this royal blue and ivory into the wedding, which we think looks very smart and classic. Not to mention their choice of props! There has certainly been no expense spared or detail overlooked at this venue.Blue and Black Alice in Wonderland Inspired Fall WeddingsWoodland Royal Blue Alice in Wonderland Wedding Inspiration

For a more subtle approach why not host a garden party serving tea with pretty afternoon cakes and fancies but making the dress code a little less Tim Burton. We love the style this couple has used.Alice in Wonderland Inspired Vintage Gadern Gray and Red WeddingRomantic Alice in Wonderland Inspired Gray Winter Wedding
