The Wonderful World of Harry Potter - Wedding Style

Ok - confession time....I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan (read "nerd" here). I'm not kidding, it may be a bit of an obsession (possibly a problem). I've read all the books, own most of the movies, and have visited the theme park....you get the idea...

If you've been reading my blog at all, you've noticed that I have a soft spot too for the non-traditional and unique when it comes to weddings.

Soooo, when I saw these I was in heaven! For a little Friday Fun, I thought I'd share them with you too for any fellow Muggles out there. :)

I  love the owl seal! It's a perfect touch to get the theme started. You can actually do this yourself with colored hot glue and a wax stamp seal. It's less messy and dries much faster than the real thing.

How cool is the snitch cake?! Still elegant, but completely theme worthy!

Sorting Hat Escort Cards and Favor Wands via The Mary Sue
This might be my favorite - the Sorting Hat for escort cards! This bride and groom used engraved wands as favors. Each wand had a tag with the guests' house chosen for them.

I thought using pages from the books to wrap around candles was brilliant too!

Harry Potter Wedding Guest Book via Offbeat Bride
This guest book can be easily re-done for a non Harry Potter wedding. They asked guests to make a fun prediction at a time, five, ten, fifteen, twenty, or twenty-five years in the future for the couple. They'll open and read them on the different anniversaries.

Finally - The Hogwarts Express!!

Granted, this is probably not a realistic addition to most weddings, but really - isn't it awesome?! :)

Ok, I know that this is a stretch for most people, even for me. But I do love how it speaks to the major trend now of making your wedding completely your own and all about your individual love story. I tell all my couples that really there aren't any hard and fast rules any longer. Do what you both love and feels right. Follow traditions, or not, if you're true to your uniqueness, your guests will remember that and love you even more.

Happy Friday all! "Mischief managed!" ;)
