Harry Potter Weddings: Cheesy or Classy?

harry potter wedding sorting hatThey say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and we agree.

That's why we didn't take it personally when Glamour posted about how "cheesy" it is to have a Harry Potter themed wedding with "a Hogwarts Express train ride to the venue. A reception hall set up like the wizarding school with the four 'house' tables for guests. Seating cards set alongside a Sorting Hat"... and then linked to an image featuring some of these things — the same image we posted a few weeks earlier in a blog about two gorgeous Harry Potter-themed weddings we fell in love with. It's been one of our most popular features on the site.

That's not to say we didn't chuckle about Jezebel's follow-up post, "Glamour Says Your Harry Potter Wedding is Cheesy." 

We love our Harry Potter weddings because let's face it, when you hear "Harry Potter-themed weddings," it conjures up all kinds of images, not all of which seem wedding appropriate. Turns out, they are beautiful and classy in their own right — with a mystical touch.

Oh, and for the record, we don't think it's very nice to call anyone's wedding tacky; it may not be your taste, but that doesn't make it cheesy.
