  2. Here's how mine would work:
    1. Which fictional character would you marry?Let's forget about the Hogwarts battle; I want to marry Fred Weasley. The Weasley twins have been my favorite characters since book one but for some reason Fred has always stood out to me.
    2. Who would be your Maid of Honor or Best Man?I think Best Man is an obvious choice having Fred as my future husband so I'm telling you about my Maid of Honor who I would like to be Arya Stark. I'm only halfway through A Game of Thrones but already I am identifying with her in ways I have not with other female characters, mainly because she feels my pain with being the younger sister of a girl who seems to do everything right. I think we could become pretty close, therefore I'd love to have my feels-sister right there beside me.
    3. Which fictional world would you want to get married in?At the moment, Rivendell. Beautiful, with an ethereal feeling in a way and anything that you could need. Imagine having THAT as a backdrop in your photos.
    4. Who would you pick to play the music at your wedding?The Weird Sisters. It's only fitting with my wizard husband, the wizard best man and probably tons more of wizards and witches invited. We'll have them play "Magic Works" and we'll all "Do the Hippogriff" afterwards!
    5. Who would be your photographer?I choose Craig Gilner from It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. It feels a bit bittersweet talking about him at the moment, but I have to choose him. With the portraits he made of everyone in the hospital, paying special attention to the way the maps had to be drawn in order to match the people, I just feel he would look for those small moments, and not just the obvious ones, that would make Fred and I's wedding photos look like adverts from Kodak: heartwarming and with everyone smiling and looking so incredibly happy.
    6. Who would you sit at the singles table (and hope they'd fall in love)?I think it would be interesting to have George Weasley and Arya Stark seated together. Leaving any age differences aside and just focusing on their personalities, I don't feel like he would be one to fall for the typical damsel in distress which Arya is none of and I think she would appreciate a bit of humor in her life as well as the fact that he would fight along her instead of laughing at her and her sword.
    7. Who would be your flower girl or ring bearer?Lucy Pevensie. That girl seems to me a little flower herself, so I don't see why not.
    8. Who would you want to plan the bachelorette/bachelor party?Norah from Nick and Norah's infinite playlist. Good (and responsible!) fun.
    9. At the wedding, who would be the first on the dance floor?Patrick from The Perks of Being a Wallflower and he would bring Charlie as well, even if there has to be some dragging involved.
    10. Who would give a speech or toast?I'd love for Arthur Weasley to do it. He's the father of my future husband. I think he would be a bit awkward but the kind of awkward that you chuckle at and not feel awkward yourself. I also feel that there would be some heartwarming and deep parts in his speech and he would make me feel so welcome in his family.
    11. Who would catch the boquet or garter?Aliena from The Pillars of the Earth would catch the bouquet but it would be an accident, kind of like what happened in the book with the bread with seeds that everyone took a bite of (not telling much because of anyone that may want to read it). As for the garter, I totally picture George Weasley, Fili and Kili from the Hobbit in the middle of the crowd, actually jumping up trying to catch it. Whoever may catch it in the end, they would all do it for the fun of it.
    This really got me thinking! It was so much fun imagining everything!

    1. Which fictional character would you marry? - Will Herondale. Because... Will Herondale.



    2. Who would be your Maid of Honor or Best Man? Cassie Sullivan as my Maid of Honor. We would be besties, no doubt.

    3. Which fictional world would you want to get married in? - Hogwarts. On the grounds, near the lake. And as far away from the Whomping Willow as possible...



    4. Who would you pick to play the music at your wedding? Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.



    5. Who would be your photographer? - Lily Garcia from the Hourglass series by Myra McEntire.



    6. Who would you sit at the singles table (and hope they'd fall in love)? - Chubs from The Darkest Minds. I don't care who else is sitting there with him; I just want him to find lo-oooove.



    7. Who would be your flower girl or ring bearer? - I think Poppet and Widget Murray from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern would be adorable as the flower girl and ring bearer; with their red hair and general twin-ness.



    8. Who would you want to plan the bachelorette/bachelor party? Magnus Bane. He throws some pretty awesome parties. Though I think I would have someone else supply the drinks...



    9. At the wedding, who would be the first on the dance floor? - Dexter from This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen.



    10. Who would give a speech or toast? - I feel like Peeta would give a really good speech. He's very in-tune to what people want to hear, and can be very heartfelt and honest.



    11. Who would catch the boquet or garter? - I don't know why, but I imagine Madame Maxime tossing the competition out of her way and using her size as an advantage.
