When I was growing up, stories of enchantment always fascinated me and though my childhood is far behind me now, the allure of that magical world has never completely faded. This is one of the reasons I adore the idea of an enchanted wedding for those couples who love fantasy, romance and whimsy.
The forest coverage here in the Caribbean varies widely from island to island but there are always plenty of gardens which are also ideal for this type of theme. Here are some of lovely ideas you can use to create your own little fairy tale wedding:
Whimsical Bridal Style
Moss Covered Reception Tables
I was completely blown away when I came across this moss-laden tablescape, adorned with lush florals by Tricia Fountaine Design. Such an lovely idea to layer your reception with the texture and beauty of Nature!
Wood Slice Signage
Using natural materials is ideal for this theme and this wood slice menu makes for a great keepsake!
Woodland Inspired Wedding Cake
This cake, with its delicate mushroom details and rustic stand, looks like it came right out of a fairy tale!
Floral Ceremony Arch
I love a floral arch for this type of wedding and this particular one caught my eye because of the beautiful, velvet draping. The soft, flowing fabric truly complements the romantic, ethereal style of the enchanted theme.
Romantic Bridesmaid Style
For the bridesmaids, think braided hair, flower crowns and delicate, romantic dresses!
Flower Girl Fairies
Little angels running freely with fairy wings and wands are sure to add a lovely dose of joy to any event!
A Noble Steed
Ditch the getaway car! It would be so romantic to trot down the aisle on a beautiful horse and after the wedding, as the saying goes, ride off into the sunset together! If you’re nervous about horseback riding, a horse-drawn carriage would also be amazing!
Loose, Cascading Bouquet
A loose, organic arrangement of lush blooms would be ideal- I adore this oversized bouquet by Green and Bloom. You might also want to take advantage of current cascading bouquet trend!
Finally, no enchanted woodland wedding would be complete without some magical lighting to lend a warm, romantic glow!
