Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie's GOT themed wedding invites sound incredible
Every engaged-to-be-wed couple will know that putting your own personal touch on your wedding and making sure it's not just another cookie-cutter Pinterest party, is part of the fun of planning your big day. Whether it's creating a signature couple cocktail or choreographing the perfect passionate salsa routine for your first dance, the pressure to impress can be great.
But there's one couple that have an easier way than most of making sure their wedding invitations have that unique twist. According to the Daily Mail, Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie, probably better known to some of you as Jon Snow and Ygritte, have been sending out invitations to their upcoming nuptials in envelopes adorned with the groom's face.
The Game of Thrones stars are set to wed in fairytale Scottish castle bash this year, having met while filming the fantasy show back in 2012. Now, their invitations have been given that special touch thanks to a range of 10 special GOT stamps, first released back in January which feature the faces of important characters from the show including Jon Snow. If Arya Stark and Daenerys Targaryen want to follow in Kit's creative footsteps, they'll be in luck too, as will The Night King - although that might be a slightly more scary invitation to receive.
The 31-year old actor and his bride-to-be revealed their engagement back in September 2017 in a very traditional way, with an announcement in The Times newspaper. Since then, few firm details have emerged, with a reported 200 guests being asked to keep them as secret as possible so that the heartthrob's ardent female fans don't descend on their big day and crash the wedding. Apparently, filming of the final season will be suspended so that the entire cast can join in with the festivities.
Harrington has, however, dished the dirt on how he asked Rose to marry him, telling British chat-show host Graham Norton that his plans didn't quite go as expected: "I did have some plans to do it, I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff," before adding: "We were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine, and I blew my load early." Ahhh well, it still sounds pretty lovely.
For a couple that met on the set of Game of Thrones, it only makes sense that Kit and Leslie would want to incorporate a bit of the show into their big day - after all, what a cool little nostalgia nod. Whether you're a fan of this style of invite or not, all we know is that after all of the drama over who was and wasn't invited to the Royal wedding, this is one envelope we wouldn't mind dropping through our letterboxes.
