28th April 2017 |By | Be the first to comment

Planning a fairytale wedding can be a lot of fun, but before you book your pumpkin shaped carriage, be inspired by these gorgeous fairytale wedding ideas. We’ll show you how to get the look for your ceremony and reception with this deeply romantic theme.

Fairytale wedding decorations

Set the scene with regal antique gold against classic ivory with florals and foliage providing all the colour you need for your décor. Decorate candles by placing in vintage style lanterns and finishing with trailing ivy or vibrant green foliage for a pretty, old fashioned look.

Finishing touches to your table decorations like these small wire crowns can be used to hold wedding favours and/or place cards while this golden baroque style frame is perfect for table names or numbers.

A floral decorated backdrop with sweeping white curtains and personalised aisle runner make a show-stopping look for the aisle, with the entrance marked by faux moss and wicker pomanders.

Gold painted chairs with white upholstery make it seem almost magical, especially with the simple orders of service rolled into scrolls for each guest to unfurl.

All in the details

True romantics will love the vintage locket that can be pinned to your bridal bouquet with either your photos or photos of family. The clear beaded garland looks magical draped over the realistic moss chandeliers.

The princess ballgown

When it comes to the  fairytale wedding dress, most brides opt for the classic ballgown. It’s a very flattering feminine style of dress for all figures with its full skirt giving the illusion of a narrower waist. Nothing says fairytale wedding quite like a princess style ballgown.

This is your chance to really go to town with an amazing design. Even if you decide to play it safe with your table decorations or your gown, the cake is the edible work of art that guests will be queuing up to photograph for the customary cutting of the cake.

Fairytale castle

The ideal venue for such a wedding is an ancient castle by the sea, steeped in history and located far away from the real world. With roaring open fires and candlelit rooms for real romance.

Finishing touches

Adding just a touch of this old fashioned romantic style in the form of a ballgown or a traditional horse-drawn carriage can be just enough to give your celebration the look and feel of the theme.

For a romantic addition to the day, ask your page boy to carry this fairytale ring pillow to present the rings during the ceremony. And then after the reception the champagne flutes you use to toast your marriage make a lovely keepsake for when you live happily ever after…

For some memorable finishing touches, you could give cute Cinderella wedding carriage candle  favours wrapped with ‘Happily Ever After’ ribbons in a range of colours. The delicate crown charms can be used for homemade wedding invitations, attached to bouquets or used as drinks decorations.

Finally, for those wanting a more subtle feel, the contemporary lovebirds cake topper is a pretty and very simple way of adding a touch of fairytale style to your wedding.

And for anyone with a sense of humour, there is always the novelty Princess bride kissing frog prince cake topper.
