Having A Cindarella Wedding Theme For Your Wedding

There are many kinds of theme weddings to choose from today and the creative possibilities are so abundant. When it really comes down to it, many theme weddings are all about fulfilling a childhood fantasy of a perfect wedding celebration. One of the most popular wedding fantasies, that many brides seem to commonly be seeking to fulfill, is based around the concept of a princess wedding like that in the story of Cinderella.  This is one theme wedding that, when done to its fullest potential, could be somewhat monetarily lavish and this is important to note prior to embarking on such an endeavor. The basic concept is, however, still possible for those on a more frugal wedding planning quest. Let’s look at some good ways to go about planning for a proper storybook wedding of this kind.


Location is a highly important factor for a proper storybook wedding ceremony and reception. The location of the ceremony should be an appropriately romantic chapel or cathedral and should preferably be one with a lot of white architecture and brilliant light. Large and elegant chandeliers are a nice touch for both the location of the wedding ceremony and for the location of the wedding reception. The ceremony itself can actually be rather traditional in a Western wedding sense. A proper reception for such a wedding should be planned with the concept of a ball in mind, such as the kind actually appearing in the various Cinderella movies. The main thing to focus on for choosing both locations is making sure to choose a location that looks like a palace.


Thankfully the decoration of a storybook wedding of this kind is generally consistent with an elegant white wedding of the traditional Western kind. Lots of white and perhaps some gold accents for additional elegance. White roses should be your choice for flowers and plenty of ribbon in colors such as white, light pink, or gold should be used for bows to tie the many bouquets you will likely want to display throughout the wedding locations. You may also want to have some larger ribbon drapery as decoration in both locations.


The attire of the wedding participants is relatively easy to handle as an nice and elegant white wedding gown is already appropriate for such a storybook wedding celebration. Make sure that your chosen wedding gown includes elegant white gloves as this is a wonderful way to make a gown look particularly storybook style. A groom in a storybook wedding of this kind should wear a white tuxedo or similar white suit, if at all possible. In many ways the groom of such a wedding is conceptually to appear as a hero. White conveys this concept.


One important aspect of a proper storybook princess wedding is the appropriate transportation. A white horse-drawn carriage is highly recommended for such an affair. White horses are also recommended, when at all possible.

Hopefully this has been plenty to get you started on your way to a romantic storybook princess wedding. If you are looking more ideas, here’s another article on having a Cindarella-themed wedding.
