Stunning teapots, bright and whimsical flowers and a dress that deserves a second look – these are a few of the things you’ll be thinking about as you plan an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding.

Hues like pink in many shades and turquoise blue set the stage for an adorable palette of color. Cupcakes nestled in pretty teacups serve as the wedding cake – how original is that? This suits the theme of this fun children’s book just perfectly!

Details for an Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

Who doesn’t love the Lewis Carroll book Alice in Wonderland? Even if a bride has never read the book, she has likely watched the Disney adaptation of the book. Alice is a curious girl, dressed in a blue and white dress, who meets a bizarre cast of characters as she meanders through Wonderland.

A wedding based on this theme would likely feature vibrant colors, ceremonial decor that is indicative of a forest or a castle, and some brides even choose a light blue dress in honor of Alice.

Color Palettes for Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

Any color will fit an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding, as long as it is a vibrant color! Bright reds, deep purples, golden yellows are all synonymous with the Alice in Wonderland themed wedding. At the same time, consider Alice’s dress. It is a pale blue (perhaps the color could even be described as a baby blue), with white trim.

One could incorporate this light blue in the ceremonial arch by draping it with blue and white tulle. You may also want to consider using lots of greenery in addition to those vibrant flowers.

Table Setting Style for an Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

Hosting an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding offers many unique table decor ideas for brides. Some brides forgo individual centerpieces, but instead use moss and then strategically place colorful flowers on reception tables. Other brides want a centerpiece that is filled with colorful flowers in none other than teapots. Be sure to add teacups to the table setting!

For brides who enjoy simplicity, one can set out centerpieces but make playing cards a part of the arrangement. Another fun idea is to create custom napkins with all your favorite characters embossed on the paper; you may even want to add a quote!

Food for an Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

One of the most popular scenes in the movie and book involve the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, so brides can use this as inspiration for the reception menu of an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding.

Tea parties usually involve sandwiches and cookies. Depending on your personal tastes and that of your guests, most any type of sandwich will fit the bill for Alice in Wonderland themed food. Some brides may opt for smoked turkey, while others provide pimento and cheese or even cucumber sandwiches.

Cookies are also very important. Thumbprint tea cookies or iced sugar cookies that are decorated as the queen of hearts herself or rectangular cookies that resemble a playing card are fun.

Outdoor Wedding Ideas for an Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

Alice makes her way through a forest in much of the Lewis Carroll book, so brides considering an outdoor Alice in Wonderland themed wedding may want to really ramp up the look of a fairytale forest.

Hanging moss will help brides pull off the Alice in Wonderland outdoor wedding. Delicately drape the moss over ceremonial arches or arbors, and sit ferns and other greenery at the end of the aisle. Of course, the checkerboard pattern is a major look from the Alice in Wonderland Disney movie. Brides can use a checkerboard aisle runner to really invoke the Wonderland setting.

Wedding Dresses & Accessories for an Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

Brides may want a formal wedding gown for the occasion, and this gown is easily accessorized to display that dreamy Alice in Wonderland look. To do this, add tulle or a long, flowy train to the dress.

Some brides are opting for a wedding gown that is a shade of blue! Some will choose a fitted bodice with a flowing skirt in the lightest hint of baby blue, while others are choosing a dress that has deeper blue colors and a white bodice. Still, other brides are opting for a fitted dress with a blue lace overlay.

Wedding Invitations for an Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

Wedding invitations can alert your guests to the themed wedding, and some may even want to participate in the fun of dressing the part. Remembering how integral the checkerboard pattern is to the Alice in Wonderland story, your invitations can be decorated with black and white tile.

Calligraphy is also indicative of an Alice in Wonderland theme. The invitation itself will look stylish and sophisticated. Add illustrations of roses on the border of the cards. You may want to use the queen of hearts card as an inspiration for wedding invitations. Some will use some of the illustrations from the Lewis Carroll book to craft their Alice in Wonderland wedding invitations.

Wedding Cake Ideas for an Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

If you want a traditional cake, there are several ideas you can use for wedding cake decorations. Wrap a royal blue ribbon around the cake where layers meet and top the cake with a topper that nods to the Alice in Wonderland theme.

Decide on a small wedding cake, but provide guests with decorated cups in a teacup. This idea is perfect for a small ceremony and reception. Of course, whimsical cakes are also popular for an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding. Some brides have tiered cakes featuring a top hat, teapots, and the checkerboard decor, while other cakes include a topsy turvy naked cake.

Bouquets & Boutonnieres for an Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

No matter what type of flowers you choose for your Alice in Wonderland Themed wedding (anything from red roses to yellow wildflowers is acceptable), be sure to focus on greenery. Peonies are also a great flower for a wedding bouquet.

Go with the queen of hearts motif and use a mix of red and white flowers. Add flowing ribbons for a stunning bouquet. Bridesmaids can have “mini” versions of your bouquet with the red and white mix of flowers. Grooms can use red or white tulips for their boutonnieres. These classy flowers may be paired with just a touch of greenery.

Wedding Favors for an Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

A great favor would be reminiscent of one of the top objects in the book and movie involving a golden key, so you may want to make that a part of wedding favors. Another great idea for Alice in Wonderland themed wedding favors is a candle in a teacup. Use thin ribbon to tie the golden key to the cup’s handle.

Purchase tea with packaging embossed with Alice in Wonderland characters or quotes. Take these tea bags and place them in a tin for a darling party favor. Add small glass bottles filled with liquid and a label that reads “Drink me” on the bottle.

From Blue Rock Photos – “After viewing overly theatrical versions of Alice in Wonderland-themed weddings, Nichol of Outside Ordinary decided that she wanted to create a Wonderland wedding that would appeal to more main-stream tastes. Using a tea party theme she definitely achieved the look without going overboard! The abundance and variety of roses, carnations, hydrangea, adorable cupcakes and cookies work well with the darling pink color palette.”
