Put down your mint-condition action figures and listen up! Traditional white weddings aren’t for everyone, so here are a few suggestions on ways you can incorporate your favourite fantasy and sci-fi movies and franchises into your special day.
Game of Thrones
Winter is coming….and so is the bride. The HBO fantasy series is a perfect excuse for throne-room style opulence on your big day—think wall hangings, candles, feasts and majestic swords. Just don’t massacre any of the guests….
Lord of the Rings
When you find that one special person you’d gladly go all the way to Mordor for, only a Lord of the Rings wedding will do. You can mix gorgeous wild flower bouquets and flowing elven gowns with cool swords and well-manicured beards. Let’s just hope the groom doesn’t turn invisible when you slip that ring on….
If the force is strong with you, why not channel a wedding theme from a galaxy far, far away? Death Star decadence can be interpreted in a number of ways, and with so many characters, your wedding party will be spoiled for choice when raiding the local costume shop.
The Little Mermaid
If you’re a bride (or groom) that wants to be where the people are, then why not try a Little Mermaid-themed wedding on for size? It seems that the trend for all things Disney is never going to end, so your wedding will still be in vogue twenty years from now!
Phantom of the Opera
This is less about creepy, phantom stalkers and more about enduring love and the romance of opera. Imagine the guests’ faces as you belt out an aria in a floor-length period gown before being whisked away by a masked lover? It’s utterly swoon-worthy. If you can find a secret underground, candle-strewn lair to hold the ceremony in, then you’re winning.
Is there a better way to tell someone “I choose you”? We certainly don’t think so! Work your wedding theme around these Japanese monsters and you’re sure to be the Pokémon Master of your big day. What with all the stationery and accessory options available, the cute-factor on a day like this would be through the roof.
