Wedding Theme: Enchanted Fairytale

An enchanted forest wedding theme is without doubt one of our absolute favourites. Do it right and your guests will feel transported to a faraway fairytale world – think exquisite florals, lots and lots of foliage, candles, lanterns and fairy lights beautiful ornate touches and delicate details. Convinced? Read on…

An enchanted wedding done well makes wonderful use of flowers, foliage and lighting, the above are beautiful examples. A cake table decorated with faux moss and whimsical flowers? Yes please. Using crystals works like a dream too – combined with gorgeous lighting this will have such a gorgeous effect!

A cost effective way to add a nice touch to an enchanted theme is using glassware filled with water and beautiful flowers. You can use coloured water and be sure to be very generous with the flowers.

Creating a canopy is one of our favourite touches for this theme, if you’re using hanging foliage or flowers a beautiful addition is hanging picture frames of loved ones who aren’t there on your special day.

With table décor you have so many choices, from ornate lanterns, to a floral and foliage runner, lace table linen and elaborate floral centrepieces  - we love the one on the top right with its gorgeous florals and hanging light bulbs. With floral centrepieces within this theme you want to go for big blooms that make an impact – think peonies and hydrangeas.

For cakes, you can use beautiful flowers to decorate, fresh or edible works. These ones truly have the fairy-tale effect, depending on the rest of your theme, you could use a tree bark to set the cake on, like on the bottom left.

Flowers that are a little bit whimsical work wonderfully, teardrop bouquets are our favourite style in this theme and wreaths work beautifully too.
