Choosing Your Theme

Fairytale Wedding Theme


You can be a realist and still have the fairytale wedding of your dreams…plus, who wouldn’t want to be royalty for a day!? A fairytale wedding theme brings together the opulence of medieval times with the romance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Here are some great options for putting together a fairytale wedding.


Fairytale Wedding Venue

Your venue should be large and grand.  If you can swing a castle, that’s your best option.  (There are some castles in the US!) If not, a sprawling, old estate with indoor and outdoor space is also a great choice.

Fairytale Wedding Dress

This is your moment, and your dress should be fit for a queen.  Ball gowns in luxe fabrics like silk or satin work best for fairytale wedding themes. Get a large petticoat to make it even more dramatic!


Bridesmaid Dresses

Long dresses are the only regal choice.  Consider ethereal fabrics such as chiffon or organza to complete the fairytale dream.

Fairytale Wedding Color Ideas

Royal blue and gold, deep plum and gold, red and black, and bright purple and silver are all great options.  Bold colors have always been used to represent royalty, and that’s how everyone should see you on your special day.


Fairytale Wedding Decor

Think a sign that says Happily Ever After Starts Here and a storybook of “Once Upon a Time” featuring your photos as a couple used as a guestbook. Consider long banquet tables with tall candelabras topped with flowers instead of traditional round tables.


Go for something regal and elegant that would be fit for a royal affair.

Reception / Food

Try a renaissance approach with family style meals with tons of options, including bread, fruit, a main course, a dessert, and wine to go with the meal.


For every little girl who dreams of being a princess on her wedding day, make your dream a reality with a fairytale wedding theme.
