We’ve got a few delimmas going on!
We’re having a winter/christmas wedding, but we haven’t decided what colours to have.
Also, we want our wedding to be somewhat laid back, and we love the DIY factor of weddings, but all Christmas weddings I’ve seen are way too elegant for what we want. I mean, we don’t want a crazy tacky wedding, but we want our wedding to show who we are. We love Harry Potter (it’s been our favourite series since we were both eight.) I love reading, we both love music, and we both love Britain.
I don’t know how we can put these elements in our wedding without it looking weird together! Help? Thanks 🙂

I assume you’re not going for the whole “Christmas-y” color scheme but maybe have red and dark blue (nod to the british flag) or maybe red and gold… I lived in London for 5 yrs so I’m trying to think of some traditions and elements: You could go for maybe a british country estate/ castle theme (this could be done in a less formal way pretty easily), the british food really isn’t that great so I wouldn’t suggest going there unless you did something like cornish game hen but you said you were’t going for super formal so that may not be what you’re looking for.
I’d say have a live band to show your love of music and as far as both loving to read, instead of having just plain old table numbers, the tables could be the names of some of your favorite books (maybe have all the Harry Potter books and others that you’ve enjoyed)
Hope this helps. If I think of anything else, I’ll come back to ya.

I’m sure you’ve at least googled Harry Potter weddings, but I think having a candy buffet table with the cand shop name could be cute, or a signature drink named “polyjuice potion”, or “Felix Felicus” (liquid luck). Sign your guest book/marriage register with a feather quill. Maybe have empty bird cages that look like they would be large enough to house an owl. I swear I saw blog post that actually had some super cute stuff that was more “reminiscent of Harry Potter” than full on in your face, but I can’t for the life of me remember now.

Your post made me think of this one, about Harry Potter/Yule Ball wedding ideas:
Harry Potter/ Yule Ball/ Military Wedding!
