Fairy Tale Wedding Invitations

Send invitations that shout fairy tale.  Fill them with fairy dust and use wordings reminiscent of fairy tales such as, “once upon a time,” “please join us for our happily ever after,” a princess has found her prince charming” and more. If budget allows, send old-fashioned scroll invitations. Tie them with a matching ribbon and use fancy calligraphy.

Fairy Tale Wedding Location

Choosing an appropriate location is an important step as it can easily make or break your fairly tale wedding plans. So look for a location that is romantic and subtle, elegant and idyllic. While a mansion or a castle should be ideal, if it does not fit your budget you can opt for a ballroom as your venue. If you desire for an outdoor celebration, look for a garden with a lot of trees, blooms, and green foliage. Consider having valet parking for your guests to make them feel as if they are in a lap of luxury.

In order to pull off a fairy tale wedding, it’s important to pick a dress that complements your theme. If yours is a Cinderella or princesses theme look for a ballgown with fitted bodice, a full skirt, and intricate beading or sequins work. Whereas, for nuptials based on an underwater adventure, a mermaid cut wedding dress should be ideal.

Fairy Tale Wedding Decorations

Hang and drape white or cream colored tulle from rafters and beams or dress up pews and chairs in the church. For reception, add small twinkle LED lights in the tulle for added glimmer. Put pastel color roses in low sitting bowls for centerpieces and line walls with long stem candles and candelabras.

Enchanting Confection

As the cake often takes the center stage at any wedding reception (after the bride of course), it’s important to reflect your wedding theme there as well. You can either choose to incorporate the theme with a cake topper such as Belle and the Beast, Cinderella and Prince Charming or a fairy tale carriage, or opt for a cake in the shape of a castle.
