Have a (totally grown-up) Harry Potter-themed wedding


Marrying Muggles take note! If you and your groom share a love of Quidditch, you may want to incorporate a few magical touches into your wedding. In honor of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which opens in theaters tomorrow, we've gathered up our best wizard-inspired ideas (our tip: include just one or two of these items in your wedding to keep the celebration fun and adult):


Making the Grade: You'll be sure to get top marks for your house (and show just how perfect your love is) with these charmingly retro bride and groom school badges.

Castle Confection: Add a taste of Hogwarts to your reception with a castle-shaped wedding cake, like this stunning design from Jacques Fine European Pastries.

What a Hoot: Spread the news by Owl Post with these romantic "Alex and Juniper" wedding invitations (click to see a full image of the invite).

Flying Favors: Wish you could use a Firebolt as your getaway vehicle? You can still give your wedding a high-flying flair by handing out Broomstick Fuel chocolate as favors.

Lightning Style: This canvas lightning bag would make a perfect bridesmaid gift (or tote to use during your pre-wedding pampering). —Kathryn Papanek
