    This is an adventure.

    1. Start by picking a thematic color palette.

    2. Make sure your venue is appropriately vintage and, if possible, symmetrical.

    This is The Inn at Irwin Gardens in Columbus, Indiana, and it only books ten weddings a year, so get on it!

    3. Send save-the-dates that capture your youthful, unadulterated love.

    4. Or ones that celebrate your general foxiness.

    5. And when the time comes, make sure that your invitations could practically double as tickets for the Darjeeling Limited.

    6. Slip into a sweet, short wedding dress.

    7. And pair it with a faux fur stole to stay nice and toasty warm.

    8. Choose a hairstyle that Agatha would approve of.

    9. And wear this vintage binoculars necklace as your something old.

    10. Make sure to find a bridesmaid dress with a Peter Pan collar that Suzy Bishop would wear.

    11. Or these carefully-curated mismatched ones.

    12. Feel free to experiment with groomsmen's suit colors.

    A stoic posed picture is a must, though.

    13. Coordinating cufflinks will look great with suits, also.

    14. Help the maid of honor stand out with an Etheline pin.

    Or whatever her name is, of course.

    15. Remember: children should be dressed better than the adults.

    16. And your pet? Don't worry, there's a Fantastic Mr. Fox-inspired bow tie that dogs and cats can wear.

    17. Channel your favorite Andersonisms in your vows.

    Maybe don't say you don't know what they're talking about, but definitely drive home the idea of unconditional love.

    18. Direct guests with wooden signs straight out of New Penzance.

    19. And guide them to their seats with room keys you'd find in the Grand Budapest Hotel.

    They're not crossed keys, but they'll do.

    20. Complement Zubrowka-style cocktails with courtesans au chocolat.

    21. Embrace your love of colorblocking with some simple flatware.

    22. Give guests a picturesque lounge area to hang out in.

    23. Ensure that all your eclectic décor is arranged just so.

    24. And pass out buttons to capture the joy of the whole day.

    25. Top your wedding cake with ceramic fox statuettes.

    26. Or two cakes that would fit in equally well at Camp Ivanhoe.

    27. And send everyone home with delightful Mendl's favor boxes.

    Happy planning!
