Katniss Gets Married? Planning Your Hunger Games Wedding

Hunger Games Cupcakes

Hunger Games frenzy is causing some very humorous moments—take, for example, TresSugar’s suggestion that people incorporate a Hunger Games theme into their wedding, bachelorette party, or bridal shower.

Because nothing says marital festivities like fighting to the death under the rule of a totalitarian government.

Let’s see what else we can think of—maybe a Lord of the Flies sweet sixteen party? Or a bon voyage party with a Heart of Darkness theme?

What theme will your next party have?

As a TV/movie/book geek, I could see two people meeting through a fandom (like The Hunger Games) and then wanting to have a theme like this for their wedding. I mean, hey, if that's what brought you together, you'll probably always have a soft spot for it.

That said, a Katniss/Peeta theme? Really? Peeta won Katniss only because 1) He was brainwashed and thus made Katniss feel needed (Gale explicitly states this in Mockingjay and I don't remember anyone disputing it), and 2) Katniss didn't want Gale after her sister's death. How is that romantic???

(Team Gale 4 Life.)

@redline_ I can see if they met through fandom, too. That would make sense to me. But a casual fan? Nuh-uh. And I didn't even touch the significance of the numbers on the arms that they show in the slideshow--that was just an actively wrong idea.

I'm a big fan of incorporating things you love into your wedding. The sorting hat made an appearance on my card table ;)

I'd love helping to paint little mocking jays on invitations.

Still think that my Upton Sinclare The Jungle themed dinner party would be awesome!

Wow, redline_. Team Gale? Really? Huh. And you think you know a person...

For a party theme: well, St. Patrick's Day is coming up. Who else is thinking a Ulysses soiree? I'll come dressed as a sentence that never ends.

@RachelHyland: Oh, yeah. Though I don't mean Team Gale as in Gale/Katniss (I was a fan of that pairing before Mockingjay but not after) but as in Gale is my favorite THG character. Well, maybe tied with Johanna, but still, he's at the top of the list.

I'll come dressed as a sentence that never ends.

Love. It.
