Wedding Inspiration Fit For 'Game Of Thrones' Super Fans

Posted: Updated:

By Stefania Sainato for Bridal Guide

At long last, the wait is over: Game of Thrones Season 4 premiered on Sunday, April 6! Based on the bestselling series by George R.R. Martin, this fantasy epic follows the leaders of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros in their quest for realm domination. 

In anticipation of Joffrey and Margaery's impending Purple Wedding — we still haven't recovered from the Red Wedding — we've pulled together some of our favorite details inspired by the spellbinding visuals on the show.

  • The Venue

    The majority of the filming for <em>Game of Thrones</em> took place in Northern Ireland and Scotland. Forests, barns and other outdoor venues harken back to a bygone century.<br /><br /> <span style="font-size:10px;"><em>Photo Credit: <a href="http://www.lightedpixels.com" target="_hplink">Lightedpixels</a></em></span>
