How to Plan a Fairytale Wedding

Many with love in their hearts have dreamed of a fairytale wedding. Often, the reality is that many of us opt for local church weddings that, despite being romantic and special, may not line up with a lifelong dream. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Fairytale weddings do exist, and we’re going to help you to plan one.

There are a number of things to consider to achieve the fairytale wedding of your dreams so we’ll go through them step by step.

How to Create a Fairytale Ambience

Regardless of where you are, nothing says fairytale more than pastel and natural themed colours. Fairy lights on everything is another great tip that you can’t really go wrong with. Choose natural looking furniture and of course, a natural looking venue. The closer your decorations feel to the woodland, nature vibe, the better. The best thing about a fairytale wedding is you can achieve it inside or outside, or any time of day. The important thing is that it feels magical.

Music Sets the Tone

One of the most important parts of any wedding is the music choice. This is especially important when it comes to a fairytale wedding. In this case, you may want to avoid the standard, classical wedding songs and choose something with more of a folksy or earthy vibe. Any good band should be able to achieve this for you, so keep this in mind while you explore your options.

The Wedding Attire

How do you choose the right wedding attire for your fairytale wedding? You may want to consider again stepping away from the classical traditional options and looking elsewhere. For example, many fairytale wedding dresses and suits come in pastel colours which help to match the theme of the wedding. Rather than the standard whites and blacks, pastel colours will provide a unique look whilst certainly staying on theme.

Choosing a Fairytale Venue

When it comes to a fairytale wedding, perhaps the most important element is the venue. We mentioned the standard church option not quite living up to the fairytale vibe. It’s very traditional, classic yes, but it doesn’t bring the magic that many look for. So how do you choose a fairytale wedding venue? Our answer is to get away from the city and into the countryside. Converted farms and barns, set within stunning landscapes of rolling hills and woods with mossy stone walls. Like any wedding venue, you need somewhere with ample accommodation, fully stocked bars and a dining area with catering.
