From the moment you first heard the word “princess”, you’ve been dreaming of that fairytale wedding. Now it’s finally here and you’re wondering if it’s possible to put your dreams into reality. Well as long as you’ve got your prince, a fairytale wedding is certainly possible!
At Flutter FETTI, we help countless brides complete their fairytale weddings. While everyone’s imagination is slightly different, we’ve got a quick list of five must-haves to be included:
Castles are a must. For those who take it literally, there are plenty of castles to host your fairytale wedding, from a majestic castle in Ireland to Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World. But don’t feel like you have to take it so literally either. As the saying goes, “my home is my castle”, so your fairytale wedding can happen at any location that inspires you whether it’s your favorite rustic barn, an urban sanctuary, or the backyard of your family home.
Oh yes, the dress. It’s the thing that makes you feel like a princess more than anything in the world. You only get one chance to wear it and you want to make sure you dazzle, sparkle and shine! The ball gown may be the epitome of a traditional princess dress, but the modern princess has much more flexibility. So whether you want mermaid or sheath, halter or strapless, designer or bedazzled, find the dress that fits you and own it. Because at the end of the day, it’s how YOU feel in the dress that makes you a princess, not what anyone else thinks.
Ok, so the castle and the dress can be a bit flexible, but the transportation deserves a traditional touch. Nothing says princess like a horse-drawn carriage. A limo just won’t cut it. The horse-drawn carriage doesn’t have to be extravagant, but it should capture that timelessness, beauty and intrigue that resonates with all fairytale weddings.
When it comes to decorations, ceremony program and reception style, that’s completely up to you as long as it upholds the magic of a fairytale wedding. Magic comes in so many different forms, from the sparkle of crystal ware to the way you walk down the aisle towards your prince. But some of the best magic comes in the form of wedding day surprises. One of our favorites is using Tabletop Confetti Launchers to shoot a stunning array of confetti from elegant flower displays and watching it flutter, float and fly upon unsuspecting guests. It’s powerful, beautiful and magical all at once – a perfect moment fit for a fairytale wedding!
Last, but certainly not least, the best fairytale weddings capture memories that last a lifetime. Not only do you need a good photographer and/or videographer, you need moments that stand out in everyone’s mind (especially yours). One of the most popular wedding memory makers today is the use of confetti and streamers to celebrate the first dance, last dance or newlywed farewell. Have the waiters hand out 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks, 6” Wedding Confetti Hand Flickers, or 18” Airless Launchers with Metallic Streamers to all your guests and let them participate in the celebration of you!
