The famous children's book, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," has gotten its fair share of love over the years, from its transformation into an animated film and in 2010, a Tim Burton movie. Luckily, Burton's much-anticipated take on Lewis Carroll's second Alice book, "Alice Through the Looking Glass," recently hit theaters and reminded us of the wonder that is, well, Wonderland. The film's vibrant colors, eccentric characters and time-turning story line make for great entertainment, not to mention totally fun summer wedding inspiration. You'll be as mad as a hatter over these details from real weddings that channel Alice's adventures.
