I just had what I think is a great idea!
Okay, my absolute favourite kids book was Alice in Wonderland. I actually live in a town that has a theme park called Wonderland and based on the book! Not to mention SO has a love for alice bands, especially on me.
Now we’ve recently started to joke about how, once we’re living together, we’re going to play pranks on each other. The best one I’ve come up with is the idea of dressing him like the cheshire cat while he sleeps, and when he comes downstairs to be sitting dressed as the white rabbit. He loved this, and started calling me his ‘little white rabbit’. Of course, I followed suit, and now call him ‘Cheshire cat’.
So suddenly I’ve been grabbed by this idea of having a Wonderland themed wedding. Like, teapots as the centrepieces, with flowers sprouting from the spouts, and favours including packs of cards, weird and wonderful cakes all stacked up in the middle of tables… I’m at work at the moment so I can’t add pics, but as soon as I get home I’ll be putting inspiration pics up!
But for now, what do you think? Clever or tacky?

LOVE that idea! Funny to see this post, as I ran across a Pinterest board on the very subject when browsing wedding stuff last night: http://pinterest.com/LuxeFinds/alice-in-wonderland-themed-weddings/

I would tread very lightly with this, as it could easily fall over the line into crazy. BUT, little or subtle touches would very cute.

I think it would be great as long as it doesn’t get looking like a child’s party.

I love this as long as you play up the whimsical and play down the kooky. 🙂

Love the theme, and like previous posters said, subtle is best. Small touches throughout the wedding will lend to the theme but keep it classic overall too!!
I was going to make these teacup candles as favours for our guests, but it doesn’t fit our theme. You could look at goodwill and flea markets to find teacups really cheap and have them mismatched. Or you could use them as centrepieces.

I think you could pull it off as long as your not too literal with the decor. I once clicked on a link through wedding gawker that was a Harry Potter themed wedding and I thought it was going to be a disaster. however it was stunning, the nods to the book where very subtle and it just had this wonderful whimsical vibe about it. I would suggest drawing inspiration from the books but not making it a “theme”

I think it would be great as long as you avoid Disney stuff. Real Alice in Wonderland has amazing illustrations (especially the Tenniel ones), though, so that would be really cool. Etsy has a lot of fun stuff.

Potails (cocktails served from a teapot, into teacups) are a MUST. This could be a really fun idea.

ooh – you could do lawn games like croquet and giant chess, and have a high tea style reception – sounds awesome!

Love this theme! Just finished throwing an Alice themed bridal shower that turned out very sweet. We used the John Tenniel illustrations versus the Disney version. Since its not a brithday party subtle touches work best. PM if you need ideas!
