No fairytale wedding is complete without a horse drawn carriage! Have the bridal party or even just the bride and groom arrive in a spectacular horse drawn carriage to their venue. Not only will the arrival set the mood for the rest of the wedding, you’ll truly be making a grand entrance.
Another way to add that special touch to a fairytale themed wedding is by selecting classic cars to drive the bride, groom, and the rest of their families. Think Rolls Royce, Jaguar, and Mercedes as just a few names of classic cars that would make any arrival stand out.
Accent those gorgeous flower arrangements at each guests’ table by placing a few votive candles into frosted glass candle holders. Or for more of an impression, place floating candles into a glass bowl and have assorted glass crystals decorating the bottom of the candle bowl. Carry the crystal theme, by placing a colourful array of glass crystals throughout the table.
There are quite a few champagne flutes available that integrate a fairytale theme. Celebrate your first toast together with a pair of fairy tale carriage designed toasting flutes!
Be sure to remember to send guests home with a gift that will truly represent your special day. Perhaps a Cinderella style place card holder, a gorgeous castle book mark favour, or even a stunning carriage photo frame would be ideal take away gifts for wedding guests.
