With the release of the new Alice in Wonderland in 3D, there has been a renewed charm in all things Alice and all things Wonderland. The Mad Hatters Tea Party alone invokes an infinite amount of inspiration and provides you with all the ideas you need to create an opulent and elegant wedding reception.
The first decision you need to make is what style of Alice in Wonderland you want to recreate. Do you like the whimsical fairytale colours of blue, pink, lemons and green pastels or do you like the bolder red, black and whites made known through the Queen of Hearts. The gentle pale pinks, blues, yellows and greens are perfect for the fairytale look and are especially magnificent in Spring and Summer. The Queen of Hearts red, black and white lends itself more to late Autumn and Winter Weddings. So now you have your style chosen, here are a few ideas on how you can create your fairytale dream:
Alice in Wonderland, whimsical colour palette of pinks, blues, yellows and greens:
1: Take inspiration in the form of signs. Have signs saying This Way or That Way to direct guests to your reception area. Have tags or place cards waiting for your guests at their place settings which read simply Sit Here. They will instantly see how this ties in perfectly with your theme. welkomstbord bruiloft maken
2: Choose pastel pink and white peonies for your floral centrepieces’. Add some spring green florals to complete this charming and beautiful display.
3: Have teacup favours, such as tea lights in tea cups for wedding favours. This not only recreates the feel of the Mad Hatter Tea Party but also gives your guests a stylish memento of your wedding day.
4: Instead of or in addition to a tiered wedding cake ( a topsy turvy mad hatter cake would be perfect) have a tower of delicious cupcakes adorned with beautiful sugar flowers with little signs that read ‘Eat me’
Queen of Hearts theme in red, black and white:
1: Your bouquet can be made of ruby red roses in full bloom. For full effect have a flourishing single red rose for the Groom’s boutonnière.
2: If your wedding venue has lush green grounds ask the staff if you can set up a game of croquet during cocktail hour for your guests to enjoy a game or two.
3: Set the scene at your reception with scattered red and white roses over your wedding tables.
4: Have playing cards as wedding favours. Personalised playing card wedding favours are ideal and a fun memento of the day.
