From the queen of hearts, to the mad hatter, the March hare and all the fun that goes with it, choosing an Alice in Wonderland theme for your wedding day is a great choice. If you’ve always been a huge fan of the Lewis Carroll classic then there’s no better way to bring it to life then with some nifty wedding décor. Think playing cards, the Queen of Hearts, Flamingos, hats, sweet treats, colour, rabbits, clocks, magic and everything in between.
Of course you don’t have to go all out and make like you’re in the Tim Burton film adaption of the book either. You can always add subtle Alice in Wonderland style touches which can work incredibly well too. Whichever you go for, there’s so many fun and eye-catching ways to bring the theme to life.

Table Plan and Escort Cards
Playing cards would make ideal escort cards or similarly cards laid out on a board for a more traditional style of table plan would work fabulously well too. Think about maybe having a key for each guest with an Alice in Wonderland style label attached with the guests name on it, or a teacup for each guest as their escort card/favour.
Table Décor and Centrepieces
Tea pots, be they on their own or stacked work incredibly well as Alice in Wonderland themed centrepieces. Also think about antique style pocket watches and clocks draped on the table or as the main focal point. Why not have pages from the book itself or playing cards? Flamingos and mad hatters style hats also work really well and can look truly stunning if you feel like making more of statement.
Whether you’re having a professional or a DIY photobooth, an Alice in Wonderland style theme lends itself perfectly to lots of fab photo fun. Have a big box of props on standby, like Mad Hatter’s hats, queen of hearts crowns and trademark red hair, the Cheshire Cat’s grin, Alice’s Hairband, ‘off with their heads’ signs and everything else in between.
Cakes and Food
It wouldn’t be an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding without cakes and tarts and all manner of sweet treats… let’s not forget the Mad Hatters Tea Party. Have fun with your wedding cake and chat to your cake maker about what sort of decorations and adornments they can do. If you don’t want to go all out with your cake then have fun with mini tarts, cupcakes and cakepops with ‘eat me’ stickers on them and why not dress up your pre-reception drinks with fun ‘drink me’ labels too.
