Can you find a dress similar to Hermione’s dress from the Goblet of Fire movie?

DUDE. Have Jasmine’s Bridal replicate that dress! I know quince dresses tend to be $$$ anyway, so if that’s what she wants, have someone make it!

Also, this party is going to be awesome, can I please come? There are TONS of things on Pinterest for HP parties–butterbeer recipes, butterbeer cupcakes, jello shots (though I’m sure they can be made alcohol-free)

Eeeek, I love it! You already have a LOT of great ideas here. I wish my Darling Husband was a Harry Potter nerd, because I totally would’ve done something like this for our wedding if I could’ve gotten away with it, haha!

 

There was a shorter Alexander McQueen dress that Fleur’s was pretty much copied off of…it was from 08 so would probably be tough to find, but maybe on a used dress site or something? You could also look into having the dress custom made by a seamstress or someone off Etsy.

Here’s a site where people were going over some similar dresses: http://www.thebrokeassbride.com/2011/08/wedding-inspiration-black-white-wedding-gowns/

@bbfyso:  That dress would work, but I swear there’s another dress that has a skirt just like that one. Let me do a little digging.

Okay, some choices–there are tons of dresses with that skirt, but most of them have super embellished bodices, which wouldn’t work well with the overlays. Maggie Sottero, Casablanca, and there were a couple of others with heavily beaded bodices and this skirt.

Blu by Mori Lee 4909 – the sash is removable, so the overlays would go nicely over the bodice.

Moonlight Bridal J6214 – comes in white or ivory, can probably remove the embellishment

Bonny Bridals has a style very similar with a lace bodice (1223), but it’s a plus size style and there’s no corresponding style for sizes under 16.

Love it! What about stringing fishing line through taper candles and hanging them from the ceiling?

This is the photo that totally made me want to do a Hogwarts “inspired” reception, but Darling Husband just rolled his eyes at me.

@bbfyso:  You would use fishing line, which is like string but transluscent and strong. They would have it at any sporting type store that sells fishing supplies.

Then you could tie the fishing line at one end to a taper candle and the other end to a ceiling beam. You could also try making a small hole in each candle near the top to string the fishing line through, and if the ceiling doesn’t have any beams, you could use sturdy thumbtacks or small nails.

For a surprise element, you could have a 7′ tall Hagrid turn up on the day, on his motorbike and sidecar, with options of Harry Potter, a talking sorting hat, and a radio controlled “Scabbers” the rat. Numerous routines available, and a great memorable photo oppotunity!
