Enchanted Affair: Magical Wedding Ideas Fit for a Princess

Little girl holding a wand, with pink fairy wings and tiara Imagine yourself young self-clad in a makeshift gown, pretending you’re a princess.

Now that you’re an adult, you don't need to wrap yourself in an old blanket just to feel like royalty. Fairytale themed weddings are now a thing, and setting up your event to look like a scene from the bedtime story you have loved as a child promises more fun than any childhood game of dress-up.

Here are the many ways you can recreate a whimsical storybook setting on your wedding day:

Food for Fairies

To add a touch of whimsy to the reception, serve food that’s fit for fairies with cute, pastel-colored mini cakes in dainty Disney cupcake wrappers. It also pays to match your food to your theme. If your theme is Mulan, for instance, opt for Chinese cuisine, complete with chopsticks.

That Enchanted Place

The decoration, of course, must blend well with the overall theme. If your theme is Cinderella, include decorations that recreate the grand ball. The color scheme plays a major role in a princess-themed event, as this elevates the princess atmosphere. Pinks, nudes, blushes, basically pastels with a dash of sequins and sparkle constitute classic fairytale hues. You may also add some gold details or some vintage elements such as chandeliers and crystals.

The Princess Ensemble

Want another way to create a magical fairy tale wedding other than with a majestic gown? You can go with a gown with intricate details that refer to your favorite princess’ ensemble, such as a trumpet-style dress ala Ariel and Rapunzel, or one with a full pick up skirt like that of Aurora or Belle.

When it comes to setting up a fairy tale-themed event, your options are endless. You can add subtle hints or go all out with the details; it’s your call. The most important thing is that you, as the belle of the ball, emerge as the fairest of them all.
