There’s a reason why the Game of Thrones and The Lord of the Rings have captured the imaginations of millions of viewers all over the world. Base your wedding theme in the magic and mystery of another world, and let your creativity shine on your special day. Be sure to incorporate the following ideas into your fantasy wedding:
The Décor: Fantasy weddings are all about drawing on the natural world to create a whole other world. Your décor will need to include natural fabrics and materials, from animal horns, tree branches and an abundance of flowers for your ceremony setting, to pewter cups and plates on your table settings.
Your Look: Channel your inner Arwen and make sure your hair is long and flowing and your make up is natural. Choose a dress of natural fabrics, and style it to suit the climate you are getting married in.
The Ceremony: Tradition and poetry rule in fantasy wedding ceremonies. Your vows should be from the heart and tell the history you have together as a couple. If you are really committed to the theme you could try a few verses in Dothraki or Elvish, or you could create your own language.
The Feast: Every great feast needs plenty of mead and ale. Design your menu primarily around food from the earth, keeping cooking methods simple and tasty. Make sure you use long wooden tables and bench seats for your guests and set up a platform to raise the wedding party up for everyone to admire.
The After Party: Once the mead has kicked in and the formalities are over, ensure a great party with a small, but lively band to fiddle and banjo the night away.
And of course have a fantastic time! Use the pre-wedding preparations like save the dates and invitations to set up your theme with your guests, so they can join in on the fun!
