8 Ideas For A Fairytale Garden Wedding That Will Inspire You

When Glittery Bride vendor collective member, Look West Events submitted this fairytale garden wedding inspiration to us, we just had to share it with you right away! Featuring a blend of classic and romantic wedding design elements, the colorful garden-like aesthetic paired with vibrant flowers set against the backdrop of Montclair’s grand architecture created storybook magic. For couples planning a Fairytale Garden Wedding, you will absolutely love all of the inspiration that is about to grace your screen.

Infuse Details that Tell a Story

Every good fairytale has a backstory that is just begging for the chance to be heard. When planning out your detail shots with your photographer, be sure to provide them with any handwritten love letters, jewelry, vow books, and other treasures that symbolize who you are as a couple. Pair these with fresh florals, romantic fabrics and you have yourself a romantic flat lay set up to document your love story!

Choose a Venue Fit for Royalty

Find a venue with a princess-esque atmosphere filled with staircases and terraces made for fairytale moments. Beautiful stonework, vine-covered terraces, and grand entryways are a plus!

Go With a Romantic Gown

This season, sheer layers and voluminous sleeves have taken center stage – and we couldn’t be anymore thrilled. When choosing your dress for your fairytale garden wedding opt for floral lace/appliques, buttons and lots of billowy fabric for that extra romantic touch.

Incorporate Garden-Like Florals

As with any garden wedding, the florals and greenery do the talking! Colorful ranunculus, garden roses and carnations all work together for a fresh picked from the garden look.

Soft and Delicate Hair & Makeup

Keep the overall look of the bridal party simple with elegance and timelessness in mind. Hair, makeup, design elements should lend to an enchanting, romantic aesthetic.

Keep The Fairytale Garden Aesthetic Consistent Inside & Outside

It’s always great to have options and identifying several locations throughout your venue that you can decorate will help you to transform the overall ambiance. Staircase banisters decorated with vines provide an instant wow factor. The ceremony backdrop along with any outdoor terraces can also be decorated to match. Not only does this help tie in your theme but it also becomes the perfect setting for photos too!

Use Rich and Regal Tones Throughout The Decor

Take inspiration from a varied, yet cohesive springtime color palette that incorporates plenty of texture like the team of vendors did here. Table designs that imbue soft sophistication and golden velvet linens that bring warmth to the springtime florals.

Delight your Guests with a Handpainted Watercolor Cake

There is nothing more whimsical than a hand-painted watercolor cake. Consider asking your cake artist to utilize just a couple of colors from your day to keep it simple yet refreshing.
