Last week, I showed you wonderful brides how to style your bridal look after “Harry Potter.” This week, let’s see how you can style the rest of your bridal party after J.K. Rowling’s magical world.
This dress, from Watters, really reminded me of a simpler version of Hermione’s dress from the Yule Ball in the fourth movie, Goblet of Fire. It has flowy sleeves and her dress also had similar draping in the skirt. What I like about it is that it comes in all four colors for the houses: blue for Ravenclaw, green for Slytherin, yellow for Hufflepuff and red for Gryffindor. You can also choose a color for your favorite house (personally, I’m a Hufflepuff), or you can put each maid in purple, which is the Hogwarts basic color. The shoes in the bridal style were purple to match this, and this dress is also available in plum!
I like the idea of using a paper bouquet, because anyone who is enough of a fan to style her wedding after “Harry Potter” should be a fan of the books as well! I found this one on Etsy, but I’m also a fan of making a DIY version with pages of the books. I’d also consider adding some feathers to a DIY version to match the bride’s bouquet!
The necklace and earrings were both found on the Harry Potter Shop online. I don’t think it would be overkill to use both the earrings and necklace, since neither are big statement pieces. They could also be part of your bridesmaid gifts!
And of course, the shoes. I found these at Zappos. What I love about them is the swirls, and how they remind me of magical sparks from the wands. They are also available in gold, should you choose to go that direction! And I think they go wonderfully with the dresses, since the dresses are relatively simple and then these shoes add that bit of pop!
What about you wonderful brides? Do you have any other suggestions for styling your bridal party after “Harry Potter”?
I’ll be back next week with ideas for a ceremony and reception. And have a great Fourth of July!
