For your prince charming and his groomsmen you can’t go wrong with a black tuxedo which will look stunning next to the princess bride.

For more of a fairly tale feel you might like to consider a white tuxedo for the groom.

At The Reception

At the reception keep the fantasy and fairytale alive by the use of lots of fabric around the room; drape it on the head table, the cake table, the walls, the chairs. Use good quality luxurious linens on the tables.

Fairy lights under sheer fabric can add a romantic charm to a Cinderella wedding theme.
Create soft romatic arches with soft draped fabrics.

Use lots of silver in the table decorations such as silver candelabras, napkin rings and place card holders.

Candelabras can bring back images of a time gone by.

Use tall dramatic floral arrangements as the table centrepieces or line the stairs or walk ways.

Large flower ball topairies line a stairway.

Use candle light or under table lighting to give a soft romantic atmosphere.

  • Wedding cakes made to look like jewel encrusted cushions.
    Have an ice sculpture such as a swan placed in the center of the buffet table.
  • Your wedding cake could be in the shape of an old fashioned coach or even a stack of pillows decorated with a crown.
  • For the ceremony or dinner music consider hiring a string quartet and harpist.
  • For your first dance learn the bridal waltz.
  • As you leave the reception have your guests light your way with sparklers (but do make sure that you have enough room to do this. Also check with the reception venue if this will be allowed).
