10 Dreamy Ideas For An Enchanted Woodland Wedding

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

This ethereal, seafoam blue wedding gown by Maria Luisa Rabell, complete with a gorgeous crown by Opal & Owl gets my vote as the perfect bridal style for a woodland queen!

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!

Using natural materials is ideal for this theme and this wood slice menu makes for a great keepsake!

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!

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!

    Lovely ideas. Though as a horse owner I have to be a party pooper and say that “riding off into the sunset” will end up being way more complicated than it sounds. I’m an experienced rider with a well-behaved horse and I still think it would be a bad idea. If you’ve never ridden, one little spook can send you to the ground and I imagine there are no helmets in this scenario. Most horses are wary of big poofy things like dresses, they might decide to take a big dump at the absolute worst time, etc. Stick to the carriage.
