Fairy Tale Weddings - Enchanted Rose - Inspired by Beauty and the Beast - Inspiration and Information
One of my favorite Disney movies of all time is Beauty and the Beast. When I decided that I was going to create wedding invitations based on the Disney Princesses I knew this would definitely have to be a movie that I re-created. The unconditional love that Belle and her beast shared even though he was a monster, it’s inspiring even if they are talking about loving a monster.
This post will provide you with everything you need to achieve the perfect fairy tale wedding.

Belle Wedding Dress
The dress featured here is Alfred Angelo’s New dress for 2016 for their Disney Weddings Collection. I love how beautiful this dress is and personally I’m a huge fan of the glitter so that definitely helps. It comes in four beautiful options for brides to be, Ivory/Gold, White/Gold, Ivory/Silver, and White/Silver.
Disney Maidens Dress by Alfred Angelo
As I mentioned in a previous post related to the fairy tale weddings, Alfred Angelo does not specify which dresses belong to which princesses for their bridal party. So you can definitely pick and choose dresses to your liking. What I love about this dress, Style 540, is that it is new and it features a beautiful lace pattern. It’s beautiful yet simplistic. I could definitely see how this dress could be reused by the bridesmaids for other events. It comes in all of their Romantic Lace Colors which include a beautiful gold and navy which I think is perfect for a Beauty and the Beast theme wedding.
Belle Flower Girl Dress by Alfred Angelo
The dress is Style 727 on Alfred Angelo’s website, which states that this fairy tale flower girl dress is a vision of satin and glitter net. Crystallized features and petite flowers dust this lovely Disney Blossom dress.
The invitations shown above are from my Fairy Tale Wedding Collection. They are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop for $25.00. They are a complete DIY package that you can print as many copies as you need.
Depending on the time of the year that you are planning your wedding some flowers may be harder to find or more expensive in the long run. You definitely would want to speak with your florist on your best options for flowers and what flowers can be dyed to look natural and beautiful.
fiftyflowers.com sells some absolutely beautiful looking, at least according to their website, flowers. They have an entire section of flowers on their website specifically dedicated to weddings. You can use their site to break down flowers by color or season. They also sell DIY Flower Kits which may be a great option to save on your flower arrangements. You might want to check out their website for flowers that are available in blue or yellow as there are so many beautiful flowers that you will be able to choose from. This will give you a perfect idea for what to speak with your florist about if you’re not comfortable heading down the DIY road.
I hope that this post helps with planning your fairy tale wedding. I will have more favors, cakes and other things to look forward to in the upcoming days so stay tuned.
