Did you love reading fairy tales and fables when you were a child – and perhaps still do? If you’re a Disney, Game of Thrones or Grimm brothers fan who happens to be planning a wedding, paying a tribute to the cherished mythical stories on your special day can be just as delightful as it sounds.
If you are looking to add an enchanted element and original details to your wedding, you don’t need to look any further. Todays wedding inspiration below is just what Tinkerbell ordered and are nothing short of wedding perfection which will leave guests -young and old alike- under its spell.
Whether from a favorite Disney movie or from a storybook, there is a fairytale that fascinates and resonates with everyone – and I dare say that almost every Bride as a young girl once had a dream of becoming a princess or heroine one day. Often featuring a girl or a princess on adventures eventually finding her Prince Charming, it is not too far fetched to envision that the happy ending of the tale bears resemblance to our own love story.
Today we are showing you that with a bit of imaginative ingenuity and our novel ideas, the dream of a little girl can finally come true. A classic fairytale with modern touches will fuse the elegance of a traditional wedding with a whimsical flair to embody the feelings every girl goes through when dreaming of her happily every after.
Perhaps fairy-like and cute like Cinderella is your flavour, or you prefer a more enchanted and mysterious affair such as those from medieval folklore. From tiaras to fantasy wedding cakes to ball-gown wedding dresses, fairy tale-inspired weddings create an even more magical atmosphere than their story book based animations.
Although wearing a Harry Potter cloak down the aisle is possibly not everyones idea of stylish, decorating creatively using fiction inspired pieces at your wedding could result in the magical event you’re looking for.
How to achieve it
From decor, paper goods, wedding location and your outfit, there are numerous ways to incorporate tales of wonder into your wedding day.
There are several types of princesses and storybook characters to suit every kind of Bride, and fantastical stories that can be used as a wedding theme.
Just think a ball on the castle, a whimsical tea party in the garden, and a dreamlike wedding ceremony under a big tree in the woods.
With rustic and overgrown elements in the woods, to golden flatware, platters and mirrors at a castle, the setting for a magic fairytale can be brought to life.
Snow white, Red riding hood or Lord of the Rings would lend itself nicely to a woodlands setting, whereas Cinderella or Beauty and the Beast to grand historic venues. How about a winter wedding inspired by Frozen or Narnia? Around Christmas time your wedding theme could be Red Riding Hood, using the color red in abundance. A Tim burton “Nightmare before Christmas” is the given choice for a spooky Halloween wedding. Or why not make a eclectic fusion of more than one favorite story, perhaps using the book itself as the common thread?
Let the adventures begin – onwards to Neverland to your own magical, mystical happily ever after…
