It seems like every time we turn around there’s a new Harry Potter tribute at a wedding, and we seriously love it, being big #Potterheads ourselves (shh, don’t tell!). From brooms instead of bouquets, to Goblet of Fire-themed signature cocktails there’s always a fresh take on the J.K. Rowling classic fantasy novel. There’s just something immediately fun-loving about a Harry Potter wedding — if you’ve gone to one, I’m sure you’ve had a blast with all the accouterments.
Courtney and Basil, who recently had a full-blown Harry Potter wedding at the Andaluz in Albuquerque even gave out hand-made HP wands to each and every guest. “It was an arduous task, but it was all worth it to see all of the adults dueling at the wedding!” says Courtney. Sounds absolutely magical.
We’re big proponents here of stamping your very unique personality onto your wedding and nothing screams personal like a quirk-filled Harry Potter soiree. See our favorite new Harry Potter wedding ideas, from a (completely realistic) Sorting Hat cake to potion-themed decorations, below.
A Sorting Hat Wedding Cake
Seriously, how real does this Sorting Hat cake look? Displayed along-side cookies, cupcakes and cake pops, it certainly stands out.
Harry Potter House-Themed Bridesmaid and Groomsmen Outfits — With Brooms!
The bride and groom each had four attendants, so they had to have one girl and guy from each Hogwards house! Two Hufflepuffs, Ravenclaws, Griffyndors and Slytherins (ew!) stood up with the bride and groom at the altar and carried brooms in lieu of bouquets.
Classy Champagne and Bourbon Harry Potter Signature Cocktails
Signature drinks at Nicole and Nkosi’s cocktail hour were called “Berry Potter” (fabulous pun), which was a mix of champagne, raspberry lemonade and vodka, and “Tumbler of Fire,” which was mixed with bourbon.
Eye of Newt and Witch’s Brew were just a few of the potions that were readily available at Courtney and Basil’s reception. Used as decor on the tables, the vessels added color and thematic interest to the ballroom, we just hope they didn’t steal them from Professor Snape’s personal store.
For Vancouver couple Emma and Greg Gavelis, Harry Potter has practically been a third member of their relationship.
They met on dating site Plenty of Fish in 2011 and immediately hit it off when Greg wrote on his profile that his perfect first date would be a “Harry Potter” marathon. Emma, who has two Harry Potter tattoos, was smitten.
Emma designed all of the wedding stationery herself in addition to making her bouquet, the boutonnieres, the ring box, some of the table decor, and more.
“I love to make things with my hands,” she told HuffPost. “It was definitely a labor of love. Plus, it was nice being able to customize every aspect and make sure it oozed Potter. We also couldn’t have afforded this wedding if I hadn’t made almost everything myself.”
