Ceremony

  • Walk down the aisle on a song from the soundtrack of your favorite Alice in Wonderland movie. Or do your first dance on it.
  • Create a path down isle by laying down old book pages and gluing them together.
  • Have your flower girl wear an Alice dress, rabbit ears, or a crown/tiara and lots of hearts, and ask her to toss out red and white rose petals.
  • Encorporate quotes from the books into your vows or ceremony.
  • Use pawns or other chess pieces as ring holders.
  • As a union ceremony, smoke from your hookahs and blow out the smoke together so it will integrate in the air.

Food and drinks

  • Attach ‘eat me‘ and ‘drink me‘ labels to everything.
  • In stead of a candy bar, have a table where guests can pour themselfs all sorts of different flavours of tea. Add little bottles with honey, sticks with barley sugar, Alice in Wonderland themed cookies, etc.
  • Provide a party fountain for beverages and a chocolate fountain for dipping snacks.
  • Buy mismatched crockery from thrift stores.
  • Get a topsy turvy cake for a wedding cake. See wedding cake examples on my blog!
  • Use Alice in Wonderland figurines as cake toppers.
  • Serve cute cup cakes.

Clothing and accessories

  • Ask your groomsmen to wear ties with a Wonderlandish print, tie pins or top hats with a 10/6 card (you could also replace the 10/6 with your wedding date!). Give the groomsmen pocket watches to wear during the wedding, which they can keep as a gift afterwards.
  • Use Alice in Wonderland buttons in stead of / as part of the corsages or boutonnieres. If you have different groups that wear corsages, you could pick red roses for one group (for example, the wedding party), and white roses for others. Or have them wear corsages / boutonnieres with different card suits. You could also add a dangling pocket watch on a short chain to them.
  • Pick bridesmaid dresses with large bows at the back of their waist and Mary Jane shoes.
  • The bride can wear a long or tea length blue tafeta dress. If you want to marry in white, adorn your dress with blue accents (they can be your ‘something blue’). The groom can wear a top hat, and the bride a mini top hat on a hairband.
  • Carry a wedding bouquet made of red and white roses. Or use old book pages to make a paper flower bouquet. Let a pocket watch dangle from the bouquet. Attach a ‘throw me’ label to it.

Miscellaneous tips

  • Make Alice in Wonderland themed invitations and thank you cards.
  • Have an Alice in Wonderland themed photo booth! Provide props like a Cheshire Cat smile on a stick, hearts, a crown, top hat, white pinafore, black headband with bow, a teapot and tea cups, plush white rabbits, Cheshire Cats, or other Wonderland creatures, oversized playing cards, croquet mallets, giant chess pieces, a drink me bottle, a hookah, and more. Also put up an Alice in Wonderland themed backdrop.
  • Have a Mad Tea Party for your bachelor(ette) party! You could paint teacups, decorate top hats, play croquet, and dress up as Wonderland characters. Check out pictures from my own Alice in Wonderland bachelorette party!
  • Do a photoshoot in a rose garden or labyrinth.
  • Create an Alice in Wonderland book cover for your guest book.
  • Make a card box in the shape of a Mad Hatter’s hat.
