Fairytales, Vintage Weddings

Belle Enchanted Wedding Inspiration

January 1, 2014

You know the story; the curse, the beast, the rose, the mirror. Whether through those childhood (or adult?) hours spent watching Disney’s Beauty and the Beast or reading Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve’s La Belle et la Bête, the fairytale story of the moody Beast, the modest Belle and the enchanted castle is one many of us hold dear to our hearts.

With the enchantment of the festive season finally over, I thought this fairytale would be the perfect next instalment of the vintage fairytale wedding series to see in the new year. You’ve seen the Cinderella wedding and now it’s time to explore the magical moment between Belle and her Beast…

Welcome Beauty, banish fear,
You are queen and mistress here.
Speak your wishes, speak your will,
Swift obedience meets them still.

- La Belle et la Bête (Beauty and the Beast) byJeanne-Marie LePrince de Beaumont, 1757.


The charmed rose is the influential shade that brings this colour into this fairytale wedding theme.

Elegant and romantic, this pinky red will tint the colour of your lips, paint the roses of your bridal bouquet and kiss the toes of your bridesmaids as the colour of their shoes.

Remember the gorgeous gold ball gown dress worn as Belle dances with the Beast in his ballroom? Tale as old as time… Of course you do!

If you’re serious about this theme, a gold hued dress is essential. Whether it’s glowing with gold, features a tinted golden shimmer or is heavily embellished with intricate gold beading, your dress should glint and glow under candlelight.

Any bride-to-be who is a fan of 1950s silhouettes will love the fit and flare of this fairytale wedding gown (hello, fellow pear shaped ladies!).

Add gold into your theme in other subtle ways by including it across your wedding decor and in the details of your groom and bridesmaids’ clothing. Woven threads of gold throughout will make for a luminescent wedding party that Lumiere would be proud of!

Not an obvious addition to the theme, Sage Green comes is as a fresh tone to rival the typical Royal Blue worn by our friendly Beast. It’s inspired by the stems of the rose and Belle’s green dress worn in the library.

Sage Green provides  cleaner more modern alternative without ignoring the popular source!

Oh, I wish that I had my own chatty Mrs. Potts to provide endless cups of comforting tea. A bit of a teapot myself, I take a large dose of inspiration for this theme from the china lady.

Incorporate this shade into your wedding theme through rose teapot biscuits, sugar spun roses adorning cupcakes and through roses in bell jars.

A lovely neutral shade, this creamy gold will compliment all of the other colours while providing some relief from the brighter colours of this scheme.

Ideally suited to table cloth or runners, antique mirrors decorating your space and as the prominent colour of your wedding cake.
