Using the icons of the coach, slipper, and castle, and recreating one or two of the fairy tale settings, everyone will recognize the Cinderella theme in your wedding decorations.
The ideal setting for your Cinderella wedding would be a castle, mansion, or ballroom, but as anyone who went to their high school prom knows, you can make a fairytale ballroom out of any space. Whether a courtyard, a garden or a reception hall, you can transform your wedding space into a Cinderella themed celebration. Consider using the following items.
- Balloons: columns, bunches, tied to pews etc..., in gold, silver or pearl.
- Silks, satins, and iridescence: gathered together in big bows or with silk flowers.
- Full length mirrors: to reflect the candlelight and expand the room.
- Elegant Flowers
- Grand staircase: rent or borrow.
- Potted plants
- Backdrops of iron or wood trellis: vines woven through them will mask any undesired sights.
The center of the Cinderella wedding decoration scheme is the fairytale. A coach, castle, and glass slippers need to be worked into the decorations. One way to add a carriage to your theme is to rent a carriage with white horses to escort you to and from the wedding. Most of these services charge by the hour. Consider having the carriage available for rides during the reception.
If this is not a feasible option, add a coach ice sculpture for the buffet table. Votive candle holders made out of mini pumpkins can also symbolize the carriage and add to the theme.
If you are not creating a castle setting for your wedding, incorporate it into your cake. A castle-shaped cake or a beautiful castle cake topper will add to the decorations.
Other Cinderella themed decorations might include plastic "glass slippers" that can be placed with a handful of rosebuds on the tables for decorations, and a red carpet for your grand entrance.
Ideally, of course, you should try to find clear slippers to wear. Other bridal essentials include a ball gown, tiara, and a red carpet for your grand entrance. Before leaving the altar, or before your first dance, have the groom ceremonially put one of your "glass" slippers on you. It fits!
Create your dream wedding using Cinderella wedding decorations. Your wedding will be based upon a fairytale whose images everyone can recognize and enjoy.
