Bring Your Fairytale To Life
Some of us want simple weddings, with rustic themes and easy prep. Some of us, however, want something completely different. Some of us want that dream wedding, the fairytale one that celebrates the happy ending, that is lush and beautiful and simply sumptuous in every single way. Some of us have been planning that wedding since we were teens and we absolutely deserve to have that dream come true.
There is something unique and universal about a fairytale wedding. Unique because no two weddings are the same, and universal because anyone that has ever watched a Disney movie will understand the desire for a perfect day of love and happiness.
Planning that wedding, on the other hand, is certainly easier said than done. Any wedding is certainly a huge team effort, but bringing a fairytale to life? That’s certainly going to take some brains and time and, we’re sure, our helpful tips below.
A Soft Wash Of Colour
Choosing the right colour of your wedding is integral to setting the mood of the entire event. And when it comes to fairytales, what we’re looking for in terms of colour is soft, delicate, even frail. Various shades of white, ivory, and dove grey work well as base colours, while a main colour like blush pink or a soft, gentle lavender is great to lend some romantic mystery to your ceremony and reception. Of course, it wouldn’t be a fairytale wedding without a bit of sparkle, so gold and silver are also good colours to work with.
Dress The Part
With a theme like this, having a dress code will definitely help bring it all together. Full suits and ball gowns are the order of the day, and feel free to ask your guests to accessorise to their hearts’ content. Evening gloves, cummerbands, and dress scarves will help everyone look and feel the part (and if there are a few tiaras going around, that wouldn’t go amiss either).
Look The Part
For any wedding theme, how you decorate is certainly going to make or break whether you pull it off or not. With your fairytale wedding, you definitely want your decorations to contribute to the mood of romance and delicate beauty that is central to the theme. Soft lighting is one of the easiest routes to go for this, but having an abundance of flowers is also highly recommended. Table centrepieces and how each place at the table is decorated should be elegant and stylish, reminiscent of fantasy royalty, and help remind your guests that they really are in a fairytale.
Locating The Magic
No wedding ceremony is ever exempt from the influence of its venue. This is a real chance to pay homage to your theme, and there are dozens of extraordinary venues which can help you live your dream. Somewhere that gives off an old-world air is a good choice, which is why churches, estate manors, and even castles are excellent locations for your wedding. If you are going for something a bit vintage, make sure that it has all the utilities you need to ensure your guests are comfortable.
The Delicacies In The Detail
Whenever you pick a theme for your wedding, the real success is in the little things, little details that make the whole day perfect. So when you’re selecting your napkins, or guest mementos, or even something simple like the music you play, keep your theme in mind and search for opportunities where you can incorporate it. Even something as simple as the font you use on your wedding invitations can bring home the theme. And if they’re a little bit quirky, there’s no problem with that either. It’s your big day — it’s got to be everything you want.
