Hi Folks! Sorry it’s been forever since my last post – high wedding season and all – but I return to you with an amazing post about HARRY POTTER. For those of you who don’t know, I’m something of an HP fanatic. The books came out while I was still relatively young and as I’ve become an adult, they’ve grown up right alongside me. I have so many wonderful memories of reading the first few books as a tween, wishing that I could go to Hogwarts instead of my stupid, stinky public school. And even though I’m a full-fledged adult now (most of the time), I still love the magic and whimsy of J.K. Rowling’s creations. So when I came across this post about Harry Potter-themed weddings, I realized I just to HAD to share it with the rest of the wedding world.
Now, there are some detractors who think a Harry Potter-themed wedding is “tacky” or “cheesy” (my own significant other seemed a lot less taken with this idea than I was) but I think the weddings featured are adorable! You would definitely have to be careful about who was invited (nobody wants a Debbie-Downer-Harry-Potter-Hater at that wedding!) but I think, for example, the details shown at the right are adorable. The wedding program is created to look like the Marauder’s Map! Owl statutes on the gift table! My co-worker and I have already started spinning out further ideas: make it a destination wedding weekend at an old European castle with organized activities (muggle quiditch, dueling, chess tournaments) and have the wedding itself reminiscent of the Yule Ball in Book 4. Okay I might be veering a little bit too far into “Halloween Costume Party” territory with these ideas, but I’m just so delighted by this idea.
What about you, readers? What do you think?
