Wizard of Oz Elements to Incorporate in Your Wedding
Having a rustic farmhouse or barn setting (1) for your wedding venue will immediately create a nostalgic ambiance for this theme. Make use of the surrounding fields and tree-covered spots to incorporate different iconic elements from the Wizard of Oz. For instance, you could set up your outdoor ceremony with the aisle marked with scattered yellow petals (2) and the chairs adorned with yellow ribbons.
For your bridal look, you have Dorothy to serve as your style peg. Carry a gorgeous bouquet of red roses (3) to match a pair of sparkling red shoes (7) just like hers!
Your reception would be lovely inside the barn, with classic white table settings (4) adorned with vases of wild flowers and illuminated by fairy lights overhead. Your wedding cake (5) could include playful references to the Oz story, like the yellow brick road leading up to a cake topper of the wizard’s Emerald City! While your drinks table (8) could be a literal rainbow of flavored soda bottles. And for a unique guest book alternative, why not have a jigsaw puzzle activity (6) where guests sign the pieces to complete a puzzle!
