Help: Harry Potter Vs. James Bond Theme????

Sun Nov 11, 2012 2:38 am

I want some enchanted evening in our reception like candles suspended in the mid-air, a long table for the guest and moving pictures on the wall. But my hubby insisted of having a black and white or tuxedo theme in our reception. I really want to have a magical wedding.We had a little fight about it(not to the extend that we have to break up the engagement) . So I thought to seek advice what to do? I really need all the advice I could get. :(

think it would be a bit hard to suspend candles in the air and have moving pictures so maybe some nice tall candle holders etc.

something like this pic can look lovely
add some draping for a twinkling light effect, or add some coloured globes and have them changing colour at different times. Lawwa has a point about naked flames and venues, so many dont like that these days.

No worries about the venue. We'll be using my auntie's unused warehouse. It's quite small but I think it would be accommodate the right number of people and perfect to build up the magical setting. About the pictures you have posted I find the idea magical also and I am considering it in my option list.

Since it's quite impossible to suspend candles in mid air and it's kinda dangerous. I found one that appears to levitate in mid air but it's very expensive which I don't want to spend my money just for it. :roll:

I like to try this one. I found this one in the net. :)

What do you think?

For the moving pictures I still have to think about it all over again ... I need to come up with the setting so that I can convince my hubby. He , on the other hand is doing his own research. So I need a lot of help from you guys...

I am sure the tuxedo idea for your FH will fit in ok

I personally don't feel weddings need a theme, being a wedding is enough for me :)

I think, since the release of the new James Bond theme, that that would be the better theme for a wedding. Harry Potter more says "21st/30th Birthday" to me :)

You all got a point...Sorry I got carried away about this Harry Potter Theme....Your suggestions make me feel that I am more excited about the wedding theme than the wedding per se...Now I realize that I should also seek my hubby's ideas..Hehehe...I'm going to make it simple yet memorable for both of us...I'm glad I joined here. I think James Bond theme is not as bad as I thought...Thank you and I'll let you know the details....

If the Harry Potter theme means something to you an FH by all means incorporate it. You might find some of the posts on Offbeat Bride featuring Harry Potter fun to explore http://offbeatbride.com/tag/harry-potter.
Especially this one, http://offbeatbride.com/2012/10/pennsylvania-harry-potter-wedding the essential elements are a normal formal wedding but they've done things like naming their tables after places in the books, or a cake with snitch decorations.

:heart: We settled things already..we'll be having a semi Potter-Bond theme where the attendants gets to wear black tuxedo and ladies gets to wear their black white evening wear. The setting would be in a garden it's a eve garden wedding ...Then I will be having my long table and suspend candles. That's all for now...we still have a long way to plan our wedding :heart:

Hello. I'm back...I have an idea for my wedding dress to match the Potter-Bond Wedding. I was looking some pictures in pinterest and I found this fleur delacour 's uniform - http://pinterest.com/pin/388998486533841043/ and http://pinterest.com/pin/326370304215703848/ (those who don't know her http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Fleur_Delacour) I thought of having her uniform style for my wedding dress. What do you think? Hmm.. .. :wink:
