If Weddings are magical events, why should your Pre-wedding bash be for muggles only? As Akash Ambani and his wife Shloka Mehta recently celebrated their Harry Potter theme bash, #weddinggoals have been raised. From the Slytherin members to the Dementors, this blog post is only for the real #Potterheads. So let’s reserve our tickets for the Hogwarts Express and look at how we can cast a spell in one of our parties!
Here are Harry Potter Themed Pre Wedding Bash Ideas
The moment your guests receive their invitation, they should get to know about the theme of the party. You can start with a marauder’s map style design to show so that your Potterhead friends get excited. You can include elements like the logo of Hogwarts, wax seals and slogans of the four houses of Hogwarts etc. The idea is to make your guests as happy as Harry Potter got once he got his admission letter in the mail!
You will need a grand venue to celebrate a real Harry Potter themed Pre-Wedding Bash. You should select a venue that is big enough to resemble the dining hall at Hogwarts. Also, one needs to make sure that every aspect of the venue has been studied in great detail. BookEventZ provides a free guided tour of the venue with an expert. You can start your Venue search here.
3. Harry Potter Theme Decor
In addition to the visual flare provided by the films, the world of Harry Potter has a lot of magical imagination to it. Every reader and genuine fan always has a unique experience reading the books and creating her own world. It is a great idea to go for a decorator who is experienced in creating themed parties. Usually, venues have on-site decorators, but you can hire a good one here if you are dissatisfied with the one provided
The entrance is the most important part as it would leave a great impression on the guests. You can get the signboard in golden lettering with the harry potter font. You can also think up of rules and regulations which were followed by the students of Hogwarts and write them down as ground rules for your guests to break.
The interiors of your party can have a magical feel to them with hanging golden keys and golden snitches. These decoration items will make your party Potter-tastic. Also, you can go for a replica of the train to Hogwarts. Or go for a platform no. nine three quarters with a curtain for people to go through.

‘Lumos’ is the spell which is used to give light where there is darkness, so you should definitely use this kind of a banner somewhere in your decor.
A Hedwig inspired cake for your wedding will be a cute and delicious addition.
5. Harry Potter Theme PhotoBooth
Getting in an old-style car which resembles Flying Ford Anglia used in the Chamber of Secrets is a great way to play up the photo booth game. The guests will have a fun time reenacting the scene and dreaming of going to Hogwarts. You can include a model caged Hedwig, just to emphasize the details. And how can we forget to use a missing wizard poster from Prisoner of Azkaban?
