Hunger Games Wedding Ideas

We celebrated the upcoming Hunger Games movie release in the best way we know how at BG—by putting together a wedding inspiration board, of course. Suzanne Collins' bestselling trilogy is undeniably an unlikely source for wedding planning. (Even Lionsgate thinks so; they declined to comment on this story.) But if you can look past the twisted premise (a televised survival competition where districts must battle to the death for the sake of entertainment), you'll find that at the heart of it all is an incredible love story that sparks a revolution.

The Wedding Colors

Use the 12 official Hunger Games nail polishes by China Glaze (dubbed "Capitol Colours") to help you select a wedding color palette that evokes everything from Katniss's blazing Capitol appearance ("Riveting" and "Electrify") to fond memories hunting with Gale ("Agro") and coal, the symbol of District 12 ("Smoke and Ashes").

The Dress

Stylist Cinna's winning wedding dress is described as being covered with pearls and sleeves that touch the floor. This ethereal Pronovias design would make the Capitol gasp in awe.

The Bridesmaid Dress

Who could forget Katniss's interview with Caesar Flickerman, where she becomes "The Girl on Fire"? The Jim Hjelm bridesmaid dress below lives up to its namesake.

The Hairstyle

Katniss's eponymous braids, with some fresh flowers added for good measure (a fitting tribute to her final scene with Rue).

The Wedding Rings

What better symbol to represent Katniss's strength? Arrow rings by Odette New York (pictured at left) and diamentdesigns (pictured at right).

The Décor

Take a cue from Katniss and use the natural beauty of an outdoor setting to guide your décor. We think she would approve of the rustic touches below, including a DIY arrow bouquet, burlap, and wood-burned accents. Don't forget simple primrose centerpieces in honor of her sister (the flag is a nod to the games).

Frame memorable quotes from the book and display them on tables. Two of our favorites: "You love me, real or not real? Real." and Rue's lullaby. Visit GreenWeddingShoes.com for more great ideas.
