If you grew up on The Lord of the Rings books and movies, then you're probably freaking the eff out over Amazon Prime's Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power. The new TV series takes place pre-Frodo and wayyy before The Hobbit. Hardcore fans have probably found some way to incorporate their love for Tolkien into a Lord of the Rings-inspired wedding, whether through their wedding attire (Elven-inspired gowns, anyone?!), an earth toned color palette, or even inviting guests to wear costumes. Several Offbeat readers have had readings from Tolkien in their wedding ceremony scripts and vows. We're no stranger to a Lord of the Rings-themed wedding, but while we're waiting for the next episode of The Rings of Power to drop…

Let's drool over these Lord of The Rings-inspired wedding ideas!
