Harry Potter Wedding? Absolutely!

Lets start this off by saying we love a vibe, but we hate a theme. The goal of any wedding is to convey a feeling or emotion, not have a lot of gimmicky stuff. THAT BEING SAID, we are ride or die for Harry Potter and will try to incorporate everything without being too cheesy.

Let's start with the color scheme. It is really easy to lean into the hogwart houses- green, yellow, red, and blue/purple. But we have a few other ideas.

  1. Pick a single house! You can select a single house, or use a combination of all four. Another fun idea would be to use you and your partners houses and combine them! Lets go through the houses together and see how we can create the atmosphere of Hogwarts. Hufflepuff- Yellow & Black, Whimsical, Light and Airy Feel. They are about hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play and have a badger as their house mascot.

"Sometimes it takes losing something to realize how much it means."
-Newt Scamander

Gryfandor- Red, Yellow, and Black, Traditional and Eclectic They are all about bravery, helping others, and chivalry. Their house is animal is very fittingly a lion.

"The ones that love us never really leave us. You can always find them right here. <3"
-Sirius Black

Slytherin- Green & Black, Moody, Romantic, Traditional or Modern, Very Formal This house qualities are ambition, cunningness, heritage, and resourcefulness. Their house is animal is the serpant (snake).

"After all this time? Always."
- Severus Snape

Ravenclaw- Blues, Purples, and Black, Academia They are all about intelligence, knowledge, planning ahead, and wit. Funny enough, their house animal is actually an eagle and not the raven.

"Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect."
- Luna Lovegood

2. Death eaters and the magical community; Green and Black for the overall moody feel.

This is where we incorporate the moody death eater colors, the unbreakable vows, drapery that mimics not only death eaters transporting, but also the dementors. The green colors are not just strongly used in the Slytherin house, but in the government buildings as well.

3. Beauxbatons Academy of Magic/Fleur Delacour

Light Blue like the visiting magic school in the Tri Wizard Tournament movie (Beauxbatons) and the wedding scenes from the Deathly Hallows film with Fleur who was a student from that school. This would be a very fun and unique way to incorperate Harry Potter features into a wedding and make it more hidden.

"Seems silly doesn't it? A wedding: giving everything that is going on."
-Ginny Weasley
"Maybe that is the best reason to have it, because of everything that is going on."
-Harry Potter

As you can see from all the examples above, there is definitely a way to make a beautiful Harry Potter/ Wizarding world wedding without it being to gimmicky and cheesy. It can still feel beautiful and "magical".
