Seating plans and escort cards
- Glittering magical apples are used as to tell guests where they are sitting in this magical escort card display.
- For a more subtle fairy tale touch, this wedding seating plan is elegantly designed, and mounted on floral paper printed with ‘they lived happily every after’.
- A fairy tale theme works perfectly with many other themes we have looked at. For example, use a vintage frame or mirror as your fairy tale seating plan, or add fairy tale elements to a shabby chic seating plan.
- Miniature pumpkins are used as escort cards in this quirky seating plan!
Table names and numbers
- Table names can be directly based on fairy tales – choose your favourite fairy tales from Grimms’ Fairy Tales or choose from Disney’s version of the classic tales for inspiration. A fantastic little extra touch would be to place a copy of the story on each table.
- If you are planning to include a sweetheart table, a perfect touch is to name it simply ‘Happily Ever After’.
- Choose classic phrases such as the ‘Stroke of midnight’, ‘Dreams do come true’ and ‘True Love’ as table names. Here is an example, using the story of Cinderella as inspiration.
- The simple table number to the right here has a great pumpkin carriage print.
- Other ideas for table names could be:
- Fairy tale lands – Wonderland, Rivendell, Sherwood Forest or Narnia.
- Fairy tale romances – Cinderella and Prince Charming, Beauty and the Beast, Fiona and Shrek.
- Fairies from a Midsummer Night’s Dream – Titania, Oberon, Puck or Mote.
Table placecards and décor
- These personalised Storybook Fairy Tale place cards are beautifully in keeping with a vintage fairytale theme.
- Silver cutlery printed with ‘Happily Ever After’ would make a fabulous finishing touch to any fairy tale wedding table.
- Pumpkin carriage table centrepieces abound – here are two pumpkin themed centrepiece ideas.
- Other centrepiece ideas could be small pillows holding a glass slipper, castle or princess figurines, fairy godmother wands or little green frogs!
