I am quite giddy because the new Game of Thrones season starts this Sunday and it is my most favorite show on TV right now. In my opinion, the best character (other than Tyrion and Arya obviously) is Daenerys. She is one bad mother and doesn’t care who knows it. If I have it my way, this season will spend lots of time with her and her dragons beating the tar out of the rest of the kingdoms. Maybe then she will be queen and become quick friends with Tyrion and they can rule the world together. Yes? Although she has other things than silly boys on her mind right now, I decided to take it upon myself to gather some wedding inspiration for her to use once she has the world ruled and such. Maybe for her wedding to a particular exiled knight?
When we were younger, one of our favorite movies was The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I remember watching it over and over and wishing I could step into the wardrobe and finally figure out what turkish delight tastes like. For me, this movie was the epitome of winter and everything I wanted it to be, filled with magic and wrapped in a sheet of snow. With the holidays (and maybe even some snow??) soon to be upon us, I can’t think of more perfect inspiration for a rich and elegant winter wedding. But seriously, do any of you know what it tastes like? Maybe I will have to make it soon.
It could absolutely be argued that Hocus Pocus is our favorite movie to watch in October. Somehow it just doesn’t feel like Halloween without it. We thought it would be fun to create some wedding inspiration from the movie, which in our dream world would be for Max and Allison’s wedding. The wedding would be fun but dark, as a homage to Allison’s favorite holiday. Binx would obviously be the ring bearer, and the bridesmaids (including Dani) would wear cute little cocktail dresses with colors inspired by the witches wardrobe. We know them so well, we really feel like we should be invited.
In the spirit of the new Snow White movie, which is actually the second of the year (why is it that they always do that?), I decided it would be fun to do another wedding story post. Meg and I have big plans to see it this weekend, and despite the fact that I sometimes find Kristen Stewart highly embarrassing to watch, I am actually quite excited about it. This time we don’t even have to rearrange the ending (like we did with Gatsby or Romeo and Juliet), because everyone knows that Snow and Charming are currently hanging out in their fairytale palace somewhere far away.
I imagine that Snow and Charming’s vows would be taken where Snow is most comfortable, in a hidden majestic clearing in the woods of an enchanted forest. The ceremony decorations are kept to a minimum to take advantage of the natural beauty of the old growth trees.
After Snow and Charming say I Do, the guests are treated to an elegant but simple sit-down dinner with red accents and a slightly rustic feel. Apples are, of course, a main component of the decor, to remind their guests of the hardships their love had endured.
Snow is breathtaking in a strapless organza ballerina ballgown made by the one and only Vera. Her hair is curled into natural spirals, with wildflowers placed loosely among her tresses, and her only accessories come in the form of some fantastically red peep toe pumps and teardrop crystal earrings. Her bouquet is composed of snowy white anemones.
Snow’s bridesmaids wear simple chiffon gowns with fluttery cap sleeves. Their bouquets are similar to the brides, only slightly smaller and simpler. They are accessorized with ornate mother of pearl necklaces and simple rings with little pink hearts.
Snow and Charming decided on desserts of a classic white cake accented with apples as well as caramel and candy apples for the guests to enjoy while they dance the night away. Their letterpress invites held a simple red calligraphy, timeless and elegant, as is their happily ever after.
