One idea I have is that you could use pastel shades for the house colours, like so:

  • scarlet & gold = pink & gold
  • yellow & black = yellow & black
  • green & silver = emerald green & silver (or light green & grey)
  • blue & bronze = sapphire blue & deep yellow-brown ochre (or sky blue & brown)

I think it will be fine to use some of the more “jewel-tone” shades of the house colours (blue & green), but I agree that you probably want to use them sparingly.

I thought immediately to channel Hedwig or the feeling of Fleur for th spring whimsical feel- maybe a light blue like the french girls had?

I also like the vintage trunks

I agree with mcklough think of fleur or even Hermione Yule Ball look would be great for a spring wedding.

I think you can still use those colors even if its a spring wedding… especially if its in the evening.

@swestmaas: Sounds fine to me, re: the colours.

I’m a total Potterhead with a Fiance who appreciates the movies, yet doesn’t share in my osessive fandom. (I’ve informed him that once we have kids, he HAS to read the books)

Anyways, I really wanted to have some sort of HP influence in my wedding and here is what I have come up with – There’s a quote from Luna in Deathly Hallows at Bill and Fleurs wedding about how it’s good luck to wear sun colors for a wedding…Although the clothes aren’t really going to reflect this, the flowers will – I’ve told my florist that I want the colors of the flowers to look like a watercolor sunset.  Maybe it’s silly, but that’s my special way of incorporating an HP influence involved in our big day.

I love all the links everyone has posted though!  The creatively named signature cocktails are freaking awesome!

So… No inspiration for you at the moment as I’m on my phone. Just wanted to say I’m totally jealous of your theme. Fleur’s dress is my dream dress. Cant wait to see how this turns out!

I am having Harry potter and marine Corp wedding. I have a million ideas just getting them to come reality is the hard part lol. You can put the sorting hat on the table with the place cards. I’m doing that and going to try to get dog tags for the actual place cards. Also having a hogwarts caslt ice sculpture hopefully made. The hall said he could pull off anything with ice lol. I’m also going to attempt to make may own centerpieces that have the house that each guest is in with the marine Corp crest somewhere on there. My save the dates are going to be the daily prophet held by an owl which I’m making myself. The daily prophet is gonna be the story of how we meet. That’s all my main ideas as of now lol. If anyone has any other ideas or good sites to direct me to to have this Harry potter marine corps wedding that would be of great help. I’m also very new to this site and trying to figure out how it works.
