Our top tips for a Harry Potter Wedding Day
Use your wedding stationery to set the Scene
We really think your wedding stationery is key when it comes to planning your Harry Potter wedding. Whether you belong in Gryffindor or Slytherin, a good stationery designer will bring your ideas to life.
The best bit is that you can continue your theme into your ‘On the Day’ stationery. We specifically LOVE this marauders map inspired table plan. And there is always room for more magical illustrations like owls, potions and flying candlesticks!
