Achieve the Fairytale Wedding Theme With These Magical Color Choices

When it comes to fairytales, there are a few color choices that can stand out – like the distinct red of Snow White’s poisoned apple, or the soft ethereal blue of Cinderella’s dress. If you’re trying to pull off the magical hue distinct to fairytales, here are a few choice palettes that you can choose from:

Silver and blues

Following Cinderella’s iconic silvery blue dress, you can incorporate these colors into your wedding theme by adding asters, hydrangeas, and blue daisies into your flower arrangements, together with glittering silver ornaments and details for your bridal accessories. There’s always the option to forego the traditional white dress, opting for a more Cinderella-like style with the cornflower blue puffy sleeves and magical tulle skirt.

Deep purple and gold

Purple is a color that has been associated with royalty and power, which may make it a good choice if you’re trying to emulate fairytales that have heavy royalty themes, like Tangled. Accompany purple with gleaming gold to further accentuate this color theme.

Deep reds and black accents

For a more gothic fairytale look, you can go for a red and black wedding theme, channeling Little Red Riding Hood or the signature look of Snow White, with her red lips and black hair. This is also a perfect way to incorporate red roses into your wedding, which is always a romantic addition to every event.

You can choose different materials for your furniture, from simple wood to intricate metal designs. You can even use this to add a pop of color to your reception venue.

Paper Lanterns

Taking a cue from Tangled, we all know how magical that lantern scene was when Rapunzel and Eugene went on a boat ride right in the middle of the festival for the lost princess. This was also the moment when Eugene realizes that he’s in love with Rapunzel – which only makes it more fitting to use for your wedding!
