Ok, so the latest season just ended. It’s a terrible thing. But fill the void in your heart with a Game of Thrones themed summer party or wedding! There have been some creative people out there that can transform a space into the ultimate fantasy. It takes a lot of know-how, TONS of creativity, and perhaps an event coordinator to piece it all together. I found some inspiration from Stefania Sainato at BridalGuides...
Many of the scenes from Game of Thrones are filmed in Northern Ireland and Scotland. Forests, barns and other outdoor venues harken back to a bygone century.
This chuppah overflowing with greenery lends a mystical vibe to an urban venue...
This understated and gorgeous ceremony setup is reminiscent of the Great Hall.
Invitations & Stationery
Lion in the Sun designed this custom invitation suite for GoT fans Hsiao and Tony. With gold foil, black museum board and nonconventional silhouettes, it was equal parts glamorous and macabre. Don't forget to include their riff on the Stark house motto ("wedding is coming!") for your save-the-date!
A gold Lazaro gown accessorized with a beaded neckline and crown befits the Queen of the North.
This bride's pale gray Ian Stuart gown is perfect for an ice princess.
For an elegant big-day look, accessorize with a cascading bouquet and a faux fur shrug.
Long and loose tendrils are a must — we love the way the braid frames this bride's tiara.
A floral cuff, hair jewelry and brooch bouquets with the coat of arms are subtle ways to incorporate your favorite show into the wedding.
The Seating Arrangements
Create your own seating chart or escort cards with guests arranged by their noble houses (roaring dragon optional).
This sweetheart table was designed to mimic a medieval feast. How cool is that rustic wood branch centerpiece?
Roasted chicken with root vegetables and rosemary garnish is the hallmark of any king's feast.
The Sweet Finale
Wow your guests with a dramatic cake topped with the Iron Throne, a sword or a fire-breathing dragon (if you hail from the House of Targaryen).
The Wedding Gift or Favor Tag
The Lannisters aren't the only ones who must pay their debts!
