- Wedding: December 2011
In a fit of Post-Potter Depression, my resolve to have a Harry Potter inspired wedding has grown REALLY strong. Like, Elder Wand strong. Mr. Fish is totally okay with this, which may be a contributing factor as to why I’m marrying him.
I watched all of the movies this past week with my little sister, and I realized that December Wedding + Harry Potter = Yule Ball. Simple math.
However, Mr. Fish will be getting married in his Marine dress blues, and I’d like to incorporate those colors into the theme as well.
There is another thread devoted to the original Harry Potter idea, but there are some more elements involved now. Here’s the other thread for reference. Some ladies have offered AMAZING ideas, and once I get a second I’ll be going through and finding some of my favorites:
Oh, and as much as I’d love to rent out some spectacular hall, A) the budget is pretty tight, and B) I actually haven’t located any truly spectacular halls around here in ANY price range that will accommodate 250-300 people. Youngstown isn’t exactly known for its architecture.
Here’s some inspiration:
Our Ceremony Location
Which looks a LOT like the Great Hall, and is coincidentally CALLED THE GREAT HALL. I GET TO WRITE GREAT HALL ON THE INVITATIONS. Be jealous 🙂
This is what the Yule Ball looked like, but unfortunately I do not have a 20 million dollar budget to make that happen.
However, looking at it now, I do have white lanterns offered to me by my cousin that look sort of like those centerpieces, but way smaller. So, score.
Any other ideas for putting Harry Potter and the military together?
