Desire an other-worldly wedding ceremony and reception? An Alice in Wonderland theme would be perfect for you! You can have a Mad Hatter tea garden party for you bridal shower or bridesmaid luncheon, while having a wonderland theme for your actual wedding.
And the colour pallet is endless! You can use the setting of the Queen of Hearts’ red and black castle grounds (especially if you’re having a Valentine’s wedding), the Queen of spades white, muted scenery, or the wildly boisterous colours of the Wonderland itself.
You can also have fun with the table and dessert stand spreads. Fun little petit fours, cup cakes, macaroons, cookies that say “eat me” can be displayed on delicate dessert trees. Fun little vials and bottles entitled “drink” me can be placed by each place setting. Antique tea cups can be piled about with flowers, signs, and little figurines sticking out of them as part of the centerpiece topping off the bold coloured linens. You can also have great fun with your wedding cake, dreaming up an edible version of the Hatter’s hat.
Other design elements could be the playing cards that are inevitably seen throughout the Wonderland palaces, oversized tea cups, croquet, upside down flamingos, rabbit holes, old, classic books, Cheshire cats, rabbits and hares, roses, and much more!
For the quirky bride with a Victorian/traditional twist, the Alice and Wonderland theme would be perfect!
