Winter brides, it’s time to start getting into the details of your wedding! First things first, if you want to set the tone right for your Game of Thrones themed wedding, start with your save-the-dates and/or invites. We suggest creating some that look like medieval wizard scrolls.
Then, find the perfect fantasy location. We imagine it being in a cool castle or old mansion to create the perfect setting. Or, locate a cool spot in a forest that you could have your ceremony, use long logs as seating for your guests.
If you really want to go all out, tell your guests to come in costume and serve your drinks in horn mugs, made by the same company that supplied the mugs for the show, The Jelling Dragon. Or, if you can’t afford the 40-something dollars per mug, order some Game of Thrones themed beer labels from Carbophobic. Serve food featured in the show such as roasted rabbit, spice roasted duck, and venison.
Let wilderness inspired your centerpieces, incorporate wood, tree trunks, wood coasters and cake stands to give your decor an earthy feel. It would also work well to incorporate lots of lush greenery or moss into your tablescapes. Go all out, bring some trees into your reception area if it’s not possible to have it outside. Add lots of pillar candles to make it extra romantic. Medieval touches like pewter plates and black velvet ribbon will help to tie the whole look together.
Lastly… wear a tiara! When else will you get the chance?
