Don’t forget the details! Add a cape or veil for a magical look, and a beaded tiara or crown can look regal and magical. For hair, ask your florist about incorporating floral or leafy details that match your other arrangements.

2) Game of Thrones
Based on a medieval country’s civil war, Game of Thrones includes royal families and mythical lands, and the castles, dragons, and fantastic stories make for a gorgeous wedding or elopement theme – as long as we leave out the sword fights.

Delicate embroidery and detailed beading, braided hair, dark makeup, and a dramatic cape or a fur coat will all add to the look!
