The best way to personalize your wedding is to incorporate the things you love the most: books, movies, food, travel destinations and more. If you love the idea of an Alice in Wonderland wedding, we're here to help plan it. You can incorporate this famous Lewis Carroll story into your nuptials in so many different ways. Rock a blue Alice in Wonderland-themed dress, serve a Wonderland-inspired cake, order checkerboard stationery or invest in Mad Hatter-inspired decor. Tea party weddings and bridal showers are already trending, thanks to Bridgerton, so this theme feels nostalgic and modern all at once.

The story's vibrant colors, eccentric characters and time-turning storyline make for great entertainment (not to mention totally fun wedding inspiration). Host your nuptials in a forest or a castle—or host a lovely garden party. (Psst: If you're looking for more ideas, check out our roundup of Disney wedding ideas.) You'll be as mad as a hatter over these details that channel Alice's adventures. Save your favorites, and then work with a wedding planner to bring your fairytale vision to life.

Alice in Wonderland Wedding Dress Ideas

Who can forget Alice's stunning blue gown in the movie? Pull inspiration from the film and wear a similar dress on your own wedding day.

Nail the look from the film with a blue gown. It's made of dreamy tulle, which will look amazing as you go down the aisle.

For a more sultry style, wear a dress that's fitted. Add a touch of elegance with a white lace bodice.
