If you're still bitter over not receiving a Hogwarts acceptance letter—delivered by owl, of course—relish the fact that you can at least celebrate your Harry Potter obsession (and nuptials!) with these Harry Potter wedding ideas.

A Harry Potter -themed wedding definitely isn't for muggles. But for fans who live and breathe the magical fantasy world, completely convinced Hogwarts isn't a figment of imagination, but an actual escape for under-the-radar wizards and witches, it can be a magical way to celebrate your big day. Luckily for such couples, we have their Gryffindor-lovin', Slytherin-hatin' selves covered with a spellbinding list of Happy Potter wedding ideas to include in their bash.

Not all of these Happy Potter wedding ideas are big and bold, mind you. Some are so subtle that only those in-the-know would clock them as Harry Potter -inspired details. Don't want to include them in your actual wedding? You can also throw a Harry Potter bachelorette party or bridal shower with the enchanting details.

So pour yourself a Butterbeer and browse 22 bloody brilliant Harry Potter wedding ideas, below!
