Another of my favorite movies for visuals was Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (nominated for an Oscar for best visual effects). Since I already shared some Alice in Wonderland wedding ideas last year, I thought it would be fun to take another one of my favorite Tim Burton movies, Big Fish and share some inspirations from it! Fun Fact – I designed the website for this movie when it came out a few years ago, so I read the book, the screenplay (numerous times) and saw the movie a few times also, so this one is a bit closer to my heart! If you aren’t familier with the movie, it’s all about these tall tales a son’s father shares with him – stories of love, carnivals, cars in trees, giants and witches! I highly recommend the movie if you haven’t seen it.
I picture a wedding under a big tree, then reception in the woods with lights of twinkling lights! Actually this wedding I shared last week reminded me a lot of the movie also since there is a big scene at a carnival, then late night party in the woods also. :) When Edward meets the love of his love (Sandra), she is wearing this gorgeous pale blue dress and I think it would be so perfect for a wedding dress. Sandra’s favorite flowers are daffodils, so lots of those around also.

What do you guys think? Anyone inspired by any Tim Burton films for their wedding or maybe a bridal shower they are planning?
So funny, we just posted a wedding today that was inspired by Big Fish and other Tim Burton movies! I’ve actually never seen Big Fish…I’m totally planning to now.
LOVE big fish! What great wedding inspiration! I should rent it! Been a while…thanks for the reminder!
How sweet! You would have the authority to do this one! I had no idea you designed that website. That is awesome.
LOVE this inspiration! It could work so well for a wedding!
Obsessed with this movie! I have always dreamt of a big fish wedding shoes hanging above and all!
That dress is to die for!!! So in love with it
Oh my goodness! This is one of my favorite movies!
Damn, you are on a roll with these inspiration boards! I love this one because it incorporates a sort of 40’s style with a bit or carnival, nature, and lots of magic…seriously stunning!
Big Fish is the only thing that has ever made me dream of my big day. The lights and the green grass, being barefoot… it is exactly the scene I want for my wedding! Such a great movie.
This is beautiful wedding inspiration! I love the daffodils and twinkling lights in a wooded outdoor setting-so magical.
I just saw this! Big Fish was totally on my mind when planning. I can’t believe you designed their website! LOVE that movie! Makes us adults feel like a kids again!
this is so cool, that is mine and my fiancés favorite movie and i’ve always wanted to plan a reception like the little town party in Spectre and no one would wear shoes!!
Love this movie! My fiance actually proposed to me on the set, and we’re thinking about having our ceremony and reception there!
