Game of Thrones is back!!!! After tonight's season premiere titled "Two Swords", we got a look at what to expect in next week's episode, "The Lion and the Rose".
Of course much like last season’s “The Rains of Castamere” is more commonly known as the Red Wedding episode, next week’s “The Lion and the Rose” will likely be referred to as the Purple Wedding episode.
That’s right friends, King Joffrey, quite possibly one of the most hated men in all of fiction and television combined, is getting married.
Not much in way of Arya and Hound which is a shame given that the look of satisfaction on Arya’s face after she regained possession of Needle was a definite highlight to this week’s episode. Of course seeing Daenerys play with dragons will never get old, and you just can’t help but feel badly for Sansa. Poor girl has had a rough couple of months. At least her half brother wasn’t executed?
Weddings seem to often turn bloody in Westeros but that hasn’t stopped people from throwing their own Game of Thrones themed weddings. All one needs to do is look to Pinterest and Etsy and you’ll soon find yourself in the middle of Game of Thrones wedding planning central.
Of course you have to tell people when the wedding is and what better way to do that than “A Wedding is Coming”? Sure it might be a little tired of a play on words, but your guests will no doubt be assured that you weren’t kidding when you said it was Game of Thrones themed.
No themed wedding would be complete if you went for normal, run of the mill, gold bands. Oh no, nothing but the best here with these Khal and Khaleesi wedding bands. Bonus points if you throw out a “sun and stars” and “moon of my life” in the vows as well.
I used to be quite happy with my wedding cake choice. That was until I saw this Game of Thrones wedding cake. I think Emily Post should amend her etiquette book to include “all wedding cakes must feature a dragon otherwise you aren’t really married.”
Of course no wedding is complete without party favors. As tasty as these Red Wedding cookies look, it’s probably best that you don’t go that route. Unless you want to remind your guests of how lucky they are to have made it through the reception alive?
So there’s a few pointers on how to get your Game of Thrones wedding off on the right foot. Anything you’d add? Looking forward to seeing how King Joffrey celebrates tying the knot? Want to talk about tonight’s episode?
