If you’ve always dreamed of the perfect fairytale wedding, it’s definitely worth getting some advice from the experts to make sure that your day goes off without a hitch. Wedding themes are basic ideas that can then be personalized to fit your personality as a couple. Romanticism and magic will abound when you choose a fairytale wedding theme. Fairy-tale themed weddings can be beautiful affairs that fulfill all of your wedding dreams. However, you do not want your wedding to be reminiscent of a little girl’s book and maturity level. Choosing the right attire, location, invitations, accessories and decorations is paramount to creating an enchanting fairy-tale themed wedding. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and something that you will remember forever. You don’t want to spend your day thinking, ‘if only I’d have shopped around a little more’. Allow yourself plenty of time to plan your wedding exactly how you want it and to do all of those little finishing touches which will make it extra special.
Your first purchase for your fairy-tale wedding will probably be your wedding dress. You simply cannot get a typical A-line dress to successfully pull off a fairy-tale wedding. Instead, opt for a dress with more tulle or organza fabric than thick satin. The dress should have a sheer, flowing feel to it. If your wedding will be based on an underwater adventure, a mermaid-cut dress is appropriate. A medieval-styled dress is perfect for a 15th- or 16th-century royal fairy-tale wedding or one set in the mythical Camelot. Another option is to replicate the dress of your favorite fairy-tale princess such as Cinderella’s blue princess dress and slippers or Belle’s golden gown. Add finishing touches to the dress such as fairy wings and a tiara. Also, add shimmering or glitter makeup for a more magical look. A ballroom is ideal for an extravagant affair or to create a Cinderella-themed wedding. Opt for an outdoor garden reception for your fairy-themed wedding. Create a medieval atmosphere by having your wedding during a Renaissance fair. If your budget is large enough, few things are more magical than a castle. Your invitation provides the first opportunity to introduce your theme to your guests. Choose a wedding invitation with a castle or horse and carriage design. Include key words in the invitation such as “We invite you to join us in our magical evening” or “Fairy tales do come true.” Print your invitations on thin paper and roll up in scrolls for your medieval wedding. Create a mythical atmosphere with unique decorations. Place large columns around the perimeter of your reception location. Wrap tulle around surfaces and drape the ceiling with it. Add white string lights inside the tulle. Create a canopy over your cake area. Add additional elements to finish off your fairy-tale theme. Order a cake in the shape of a large castle with moats. Order ice sculptures. Have the bride and groom enter the reception area on a horse and carriage. Employ a harpist during your ceremony and reception.
