So as a bit of Sunday fun and given that the penultimate series of Game Of Thrones kicks off in the UK tomorrow, we thought we’d put together a piece on styling your wedding with a Game Of Thrones theme, in a Rock My Wedding style of course. We don’t often delve into the world of wedding themes, as we much prefer when a look is organically brought together, but sometimes a dash of personality is in order and if Game Of Thrones is your go-to for #netflixandchill, then maybe including some subtle nods to the series in your decor would really suit the vibe of your day.
We’re ignoring the blood shed, sweat and general filth, as that’s probably not the best look for your wedding day. Instead we’re focusing on rich, opulent, moody colours – think Medieval banqueting hall with lots of candlelight. Naturally guests would sit in thrones and everything must be accessorised with a crown, even the cake. Remember to be truly authentic there’s no electricity so it’s strictly a candle lit affair 😉
Floral tones follow the decor, with dark berries, purples and lots of foliage taking centre stage. Pair your floral displays with copper candlestick holders and large urns and you’re well on the way to having a Game Of Thrones-esque floral frenzy.
For hair texture is key – the thicker the better. Then you want long loose waves, with endless plaits, twists and interlocking details. Make up is barely there, but you want to look strong and fearless, so a bold eye is perfect.
When it comes to a Game Of Thrones inspired gown – I’ve got three British designers who have you covered – Ailsa Munro is the queen of the bodice, her dresses look like they could actually be from a wonderful costume department. The original multiway dresses from Twobirds would be perfect for maids, the twisty Grecian style is ideal for this theme. Then there’s the vintage inspired collection by Rolling In Roses, it’s all about the capes and sleeves here. Hayley truly knows how to design a dress with drama.
Have we won you over? Anyone out there planning a themed wedding? Even a Game Of Thrones wedding? Or are you just saving it for the small screen?
