When two die-hard fans of Harry Potter tie the knot, can you imagine how magical their wedding could be?  In honor of The Boy Who Lived, many Harry Potter fans have recreated the most powerful wizard fiction at their wedding parties. If you’re also one of them, this could be the perfect theme for yours.

The most important thing to pay attention to, if you want to take the Harry Potter story into your wedding theme, is the details to ensure your vision will be perfectly executed. You need to make some serious planning but spare some space for your creativity and imagination.

This theme will be great when you’re having a wedding party in a hall, which you could transform into Hogwart’s Great Hall, or in the woods or outdoors.

Rustic touches are the natural pairing to this theme. You can mostly use rich dark wood to set the moody, magical tone and add colors of purple, moss green and gold. Alternatively, you can use colors from each house of Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.


Pay attention to little things to create a better re-creation. Hanging candles are a must for an enchanting touch straight from Hogwarts. Stacks of thick old books, which could also be Harry Potter books, are cute for centerpieces. And because your guests will mostly be witches and wizards (unless, maybe, some of them are muggles and mudbloods), let them write their message using dipped-in-ink quill on parchment paper.

Another way to take Harry Potter into your wedding is by creating a dessert table inspired by the legendary wizarding sweets shop, Honeydukes. Remember Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans? Those are worth displaying along with other treats like Chocolate Frogs, Acid Pops and Pumpkin Pasties. You are also encouraged to create a drink station with choices of magical drinks inspired by the wizarding world of Harry Potter. Start from the infamous Butterbeer, Pumpkin Juice, to Polyjuice Potion and the most powerful love potion Amortentia.

It is magical and fun but your wedding should be still a wedding, don’t let the fun overshadow the sentiment. Although the whole story of Harry Potter doesn’t have that romantic kind of vibe, but as a fan, you know there’s one most important line that refers to Professor Snape’s romantic declaration of eternal love for Harry’s mother, and the word is “Always.” You can make it as a quirky but sentimental statement on your wedding decoration.


Now that you got the idea for the theme, it’s time to raise your wand and get ready to swish and flick. But, you must know that planning thematic wedding like this could be very challenging. Thus, whenever you’re in doubt, follow the Weasley’s lead, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
