Through the looking glass: Wedding Journal’s top tips on how to style an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding.

With the 2016 release of Alice Through the Looking Glass here at Wedding Journal we’ve become a little bit obsessed with Alice in Wonderland as a wedding theme.


There’s nothing more ethereal than a powder blue-grey wedding dress. Go short like Alice or choose a long, flowing princess gown in soft tulle. Fashion brand, Beyond Burlesque have even brought out an ‘Alice’ inspired dress for the bride who wishes to completely emulate the look.

Alice in Wonderland centrepieces are all about the tea cups- the more mismatched the better! An easy option to recreate, let your own creativity shine through and spend many enjoyable afternoons searching through second hand shops for vintage bargains.

Nothing suits an Alice in Wonderland theme more than a deck of cards as a wedding favour– your guests will welcome the entertainment after dinner too. You also can’t go wrong with an edible favour- simply attach an ‘eat me’ tag and you won’t have to tell your guests twice!

Table Plans

With so many creative ideas to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice. We love the idea of printing a small plan and getting your guests to use a magnifying glass.

It has to be a tea party! Include more savoury snacks if you think your guests will appreciate the extra stomach lining. Make sure the kids don’t miss out on the fun by providing a kid friendly afternoon tea with juice, simple sandwiches and lots of tasty treats.
