Odds are when you were first reading the Harry Potter books, you were basically lightyears away from marriage. Well, time flies when you're obsessively checking the post for your Hogwarts letter every July, because guess what? We are getting to an age where we are finally old enough to have the Harry Potter -themed wedding we always dreamed of! Or, you know, would have dreamed of, if we'd thought of it back then. It turns out 2015 is a miraculous time to be a Potterhead in love, because you can get Harry Potter couple tattoos, buy your friends Harry Potter wedding gifts, and even find ways to sneak Harry Potter quotes into your wedding vows. Who says our generation doesn't know how to adult?! We've clearly got it made.
See, the one thing that unites Potterheads is that no matter what our views on the institution of marriage are, we can all agree that a Harry Potter wedding would be bosser than boss. And the best part is, you barely even have to lift a finger! Etsy is basically the Kwickspell of weddings for all you event-planning squibs. Here are all the things you need to make your HP wedding one for the books:

Just ... do yourself a favor try not to think about Snape during your consummation.
