The wedding date has been set and you have already decided that a fairytale ceremony is what you desire. But where should it take place: in a castle, in the woods or during winter, somewhere in the mountains? If you haven’t decided the details of your fairytale wedding yet, then find your inspiration in this article!
1. Fairytale themed wedding in the forest
What can be more fabulous than a wedding in the woods? Nothing can beat the fresh air and gorgeous surroundings, and the pictures will definitely be delightful!
Depending on the season you’re choosing, nature can decorate your wedding in many ways. The beauty of the forest speaks for itself, but you can still use some decorations such as safely placed candles, wreaths and any other wooden objects. The main idea is for the decorations to be complementary to the chosen season.
A wedding in the forest can be like a timeless royal story if everyone plays a role: you two become the main characters, while guests can be princes, wizards, knights or any other figure from fantasy stories. Or you can get your inspiration from Shakespeare’s play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream – this will surely be a party starter! No matter your choice, there are many ways you can organize a fairytale wedding in the woods, with costumes that fit perfectly into the magic of nature. Certainly the guests will be delighted by this initiative!
2. Fairytale wedding venue: Bran Castle
“Once upon a time…” – that’s how the story of your wedding at Bran Castle can begin. As in fairy tales, good always wins, so your fairy tale must end with a lavish wedding that will be remembered for a lifetime.
This Romanian castle is not only imposing and majestic – Bran has a fascinating history behind it. You have the chance to welcome your guests in a location full of historical tales – that’s one of the reasons why a wedding at this castle would be a perfect choice, especially if the theme of the wedding is related to fairy tales.
Did you know that this castle was built more than 600 years ago and was originally a fortress known as the Dietrichstein, built in the 13th century? Despite it being famous as being the home of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the story goes a little bit different. The story was inspired by Vlad Tepes, a Romanian ruler from the 15th century, who historians say didn’t even live inside the castle. But even so, its history is no less interesting. Moreover, being built on a cliff in the heart of the Carpathian mountains, the views are amazing and quite unique.
For a royal-inspired wedding, Bran is the perfect location thanks to its baroque architecture and luxurious interior design. The carved wooden walls, large mirrors and chandeliers are details that will integrate perfectly in your fairytale dream wedding.
3. Fairy tale wedding in the winter
Although summer is a wedding favorite, more and more unconventional couples prefer to tie the knot in the winter. Although the weather can be a little unpredictable during the cold season, it’s also the perfect setting for a fairytale wedding. The fog lost among the mountains, the trees full of life and the smooth snow – these details sure carry a note of mystery and romance around them.
Winter weddings should be cozy, so try to find an intimate location, which can be animated with lights and boho or vintage decorations – candles, cones, string lights, wreaths and shiny details. Play with a natural palette: pastel nuances, light blue and neutral colors. Also, try to adapt the decor to the chosen location and season. When it comes to the ideal place, a cottage is the perfect choice, mostly when it comes to small weddings.
In the winter months, however, everything is quieter, so you can get better deals from your favorite venues, photographers and entertainers. You can also spice up the wedding menu with something specific to the cold season, such as tea, Christmas treats or hot chocolate, as a part of a winter-themed candy bar.
So, the best part is that there are many sources of inspiration for a winter fairytale wedding! You can choose any theme, from Christmas stories to Disney characters, but nevertheless the most important thing is to keep yourselves warm and your guests as well.
So, how do you picture your fairytale wedding? Would you like to find inspiration in royal ceremonies or in a charming and magical story that you have known since childhood? Whatever you choose, remember that location plays an extremely important role – a magical wedding must take place in one of these magical places: in a castle, in a forest or in the heart of the mountains during winter.
