I just had a thought about the wedding. It's reasonable to assume Fleur will have a Boquet toss, so the question is: who'll catch it?

That would be one fun moment in the series.

I want to know what people think the difference between a normal wedding and a wizard wedding will be. JKR is bound to throw some kind of twist in it. What will it be?

If there is a bouquet toss, my guess is that either Hermione or Ginny will catch it. Perhaps they will both have their wands out trying to Accio it.

The bonquet toss idea is what I want but too predictable. But it will be interesting the differences between a wizard and muggle wedding.

I can't wait to see what JKR cooks up for us muggles to learn about wizard marriage. I also think that there will be some interesting guests that will help spice up the atmosphere as well.

It was stated in HBP that the wedding will be at the Burrow, and really that makes the most sense. It's more convenient for most of the characters, and more convenient for JKR to write - less description of location means more description of action.

People keep saying Krum will be there, but I can't see why. Harry was a fellow Tri-Wizard Champion, but he hasn't stayed close to either Fleur or Krum. Maybe it's just because JKR has said we'll see more of Krum and this is the only way they think he can be worked back in?

I'm really excited to see how wizards do weddings. Fleur being what she is, I'm sure we'll see the fully decked-out version of a wizard wedding. She may only have two bridesmaids, but it'll be the equivelant of a black-tie, open-bar, Daddy-paid-way-too-much-for-all-of-this type wedding.

Another point - I can't see Arthur allowing Umbridge to be there, no matter what. Just because he works at the Ministry doesn't mean he needs to invite everyone else who does. Arthur has never felt any need to kiss up at the office, and I don't see him starting with his son's wedding.

The wedding will certainly be interesting. I wonder where they will have it, the Burrow seems most improper for a wedding. Maybe there's some sort of legal service or something at the Ministry of Magic? Who knows, maybe they have a sort of room where they do nuptuals?

I think the guest list will be interesting. Fleur's sister Danielle will undoubtably be there, probably as a bridesmade. She'll probably recognize Harry and talk to him. Since Fleur is part Veela, I can imagine her beautiful relatives might cause some disturbance with ceremony. I wonder what Ron will do in their presence.

As for Bill's best man, I wonder who he will choose? He has so many brothers, it will probably be much like a small competition between them...that's what usually happens in ceremonies nowadays; the groom can't decide between his brothers or his best friend...

I think we'll also see a lot more of the Weasley family, including Great Auntie Muriel, Charlie, Bill, Fred, George...maybe even Percy!

I wonder how Jo will go about the usual traditions of weddings...will people bring gifts? Will the bride and groom exchange rings? How fancy will they dress? Will there be a boquet toss? And most important of all, will there be cake? I think it's likely we'll see all of these things...maybe even a special limo or carriage that says 'Just Married' on it!

Oooh that'll be interesting!! Which brings me to my next question. Are wizard weddings like muggle ones?? This really weird notion about Peeves crashing the wedding came up in the love thread of all places and I was thinking how hilarious it would be if he did.

Krum should heat things up a bit more between Ron and Hermione, something which I can't wait for . I wonder if Percy will attend since he refuses to associate himself with his family anymore. The scum. Fred and George might pull a few pranks on the guests which should be fun to read. All in all, I'm guessing the wedding should be VERY interesting .

I'm wondering how in-depth JK will get with the wedding - I wouldn't think she would waste time on something that didn't further the plot. It seems to me there is so much ground to cover in book 7 that there isn't much room to go into detail without the event being a major plot point, like a DE attack during the ceremony or Harry meeting some critical new character.

Possibly Tonks, too...that would be quite the sight...a bunch of witches all trying to magically catch a bouquet. It may even hover in the air, momentarily confused about which way to go with everyone tugging on it at once. lol.

I'm thinking that's exactly what Jo has in mind. There will probably be some kind of emergency at the reception (hopefully not some DEs crashing the party) and Harry, a few aurors, the DA, etc. will have to disapparate to Azkaban and stop a massive break-out or something.

All members of the OotP will be there. The OotP acts more like a big family more than anything else. So that means Professor McGonagall.

The wedding might be the thing that reunites Percy with his family.

Hmm... some people have been mentioning that Gabrielle seems to have a soft spot for Harry (the way Fleur talks about her) and this could lead to conflict between Harry/Ginny too. However, I personally hope it (the wedding) doesn't end up too mushy with romance. But I do hope it'll turn out to be a cheerful and entertaining experience to balance out the 'dark parts' of the book.

The wedding hopefully will be light hearted and humorous, because we all know that things will become very VERY dark.

I think that the wedding will repersent the quiet before the storm. It will allow the charecters to have a night of fun before a book of terror, or at least that's how I hope it goes.

Since I heard about the wedding I imagined it in the Weasleys back yard as a grand outdoor wedding with lots of red heads and half Veelas for Ron to chase after. (I've acctually RPed it out this way recently)

To add to the bet of who will catch Fluers boquet, I put $5 down on Luna

Well, we don't know if there will be a bouquet.
I wonder if Harry will go to the Burrow first? Dumbledore told Harry to visit the Dursleys before he turns 17. Will he visit right before he turns 17?

I would suspect that the Dursleys would be there to pick Harry up after the Hogwarts Express like they always are. So I would assume he'd go home with them for a bit and then find his way to the Burrow for the wedding. (we're getting way off topic here with this opps)

But yes, I still predict boquet and Luna catching it and then beginning to ramble about some strange minature animal/insect that lives in roses.

Well, it'll be interesting nonetheless, with Fred and George there. Scrimgeour will most likely come, with Percy, to try and coax Harry again, and he might bring Umbridge, but most likely not, it'd be funny. She'd probably run out because of Fred and George's jokes on her, and Bill's newly aqcuired "half-blood," or whatever she has against werewolves. I imagine a lot of witches and wizards from the MoM, because the Weasley's have been right about Voldemort coming back and I imagine that MoM personel are more friends with the Weasley's now. The OotP will be there too, possibly Aberforth?

Like I said, it will be interesting regardless.

The part I don't think anyone has mentioned yet are Bill's co-workers. He was the curse-breaker for Gringott's, right? So he must know a lot of people who have higly specialized wizarding skills. Detecting curses and breaking them ,counter-curse as well as knowing about the existence of them. Also, Bill said the goblins didn't mind his earring as long as he brought in a lot of treasure. So I think Bill and company will be ale to help Harry with some info on the Horcruxes. After all, anything associated with the Founders would be considered treasure(in one way or another). Maybe they have heard rumors of the tiara(much speculated Ravenclaw horcrux) or the Huflepuff cup. I think for this opportunity, JK will go into the wedding details.

However, as fun as it may be, I don't think Harry will be ging to France. JK just seems to British-centered. I would be shocked if Harry goes abroad. Just my opinion though.
