I have a confession. I’m a Harry Potter nerd. The best part of that confession is that it’s not even shameful — in fact, I think it’s more shameful to not be a Harry Potter nerd. Like most Gen Y’ers, Harry Potter was a huge part of my upbringing. With Gen Y kids now getting to the age where they want to get married, Harry Potter-themed weddings are becoming a thing. And I love it. What I don’t love is the aesthetic of a lot of them. Sure, a lot of it comes down to personal preference, but I’ve found some examples of HP weddings look more like a kids’ birthday party.
