From movies to popular culture, everything has had an impact on the way a modern couple envisions their dream wedding. One of the most recent series to inspire wedding themes is none other than the hit HBO show 'Game of Thrones' (GoT) which impressed audiences around the world. While the show is rather risque and violent, its visual elements are impressive. We asked ace wedding designer Rachana Lucknowala of Vivaah Wedding Décor Stylist to share some ideas on how she would plan a GoT-inspired wedding.

Rachana created a mood board that will give you inspiration to make your GoT-themed wedding come to life.

1. What would be your dream venue for a wedding inspired by GoT?
“I would ideally love to do a GoT-inspired wedding in the mountains or a ski resort. The wedding will have costume-inspired outfits with a medieval gothic vibe just like Talin in Estonia.”

2. How would you plan the decor for this wedding?
“A wedding like this demands authentic elements or it just won’t feel the same. So, for the decor, I would go rustic with black and maroon roses, raw elements of nature such as logs for seating chairs made with rugged unpolished wood, benches, organic jute, oil lamps along with lots of green elements.”

Period based themes require attention to detail, and with these elements, you can ensure that your recreation is as close to the aethetics of the award-winning series as possible.

3. What ensembles should the couple wear for such an unusual theme?
“The bride and groom will have all eyes on them, and for the main day, I suggest the couple opt for shimmery wedding outfits. A bride could wear an ensemble like a long trailing lehenga accentuated with feathers, capes, floral wreaths and dramatic jewellery. The idea is to create something pretty and stylish, with a remarkable difference.”

Brides and grooms, all the attention will be on you and not the Iron Throne, so, here’s some inspiration to create unforgettable looks for your big day!

4. What interesting elements would you suggest to make the GoT-themed wedding details Pinterest and Instagram worthy?
“A wedding with a theme as grand and elaborate as this is bound to stand out, but to truly make it a visual marvel, I’d suggest that couples focus on the decor along with picturesque lighting, an open-air setting for the orange skies to take full effect and also the bridal entry. These are sure to make the occasion look and feel authentic and visually appealing.”

We also recommend that you time your entry event and walk toward the mandap/aisle to the compelling title track of GOT!

Here are some elements that will elevate the whole wedding, making it a sure hit on Pinterest and Instagram!

Wedding Cake
Jon Snow may know nothing, but we know one thing for sure - everyone loves cake! Add your personal touches to the theme based cake. For instance, order mini fondant versions of you and your partner as the cake-top or with a replica of the iconic Iron Throne itself.
