So the big day is approaching and you’ve decided on the date, budget and location – but what about the theme? Many couples choose a themed wedding as a way to make their day unique and reflective of their interests, but it can sometimes be tricky thinking of the perfect theme without going overboard. If you’re a die hard Disney fan, or you’ve simply fallen in love with the new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, make sure you take a look at this guide to creating the ultimate themed wedding that you and your guests will never forget!
When it comes to dresses, you don’t get much more magical than Belles beautiful gown. Choosing the right dress is the first step in creating your Disney themed day, and luckily there are lots of stunning designs to choose from that are specially created with princesses in mind. If you want a more subtle look, think about finding a dress with some yellow detailing or off the shoulder style to channel your inner Belle.
Once you’ve picked the perfect gown, make sure your prince also looks the part. A good way to recreate the theme is with a navy suit and a yellow tie and accessories for a modern twist on the beasts classic ensemble. And for your bridesmaids, blue dresses with yellow bow detail will look adorable and really bring the theme together.
Set the scene and delight your guests with some Beauty and the Beast inspired decor. Accessories like tea pot sets, candelabra’s and rustic vintage ornaments make the perfect items to adorn your tables with, and not forgetting a rose filled bell jar for the ultimate centrepiece!
Add a touch of glamour to the space with some crystal ceiling lights, and choose a colour scheme of blue, yellow and red to keep in tone with the rest of the theme. Another cute touch could be to leave rustic looking guest books on each table as an ode to Belle’s love of reading, and include fairy lights wherever possible to add to the magical atmosphere.
Picking the perfect wedding food is key, so add a touch of luxury to your big day by choosing a Disney inspired cake so beautiful you won’t want to cut! There are lots of ways this look can be achieved, from rose adorned cakes with yellow icing to ‘be our guest’ toppers and tiered castle shaped cakes, there’s sure to be a tasty idea for everyone.
Since Beauty and the Beast is set in France, plan a romantic a la carte meal for you and your guests to feast on. If you need some culinary ideas, consider creating a menu made up of all the food from the film’s famous ‘be our guest’ dinner scene – you might even inspire a little sing-a-long in the process!
