Outside-the-box and a bit unconventional, whimsical weddings are filled with unique details that can bring additional charm to your special day. If you want a celebration that’s a little quirky (with a dash of romance), these 12 whimsical wedding ideas can help you turn that dream into reality.
1. Ditch the Traditional Dress
Skip the classic white ensemble, and don’t be afraid to mix and match different fabrics and silhouettes for an original wedding look. Look effortlessly chic in a gown that’s both ethereal and romantic – like this organza draped dress with a lace fitted top.
2. Embrace The Lace
Bring the whimsy in a frilly frock that highlights your femininity with delicate lace details. You’ll feel gorgeous and leave your guests in awe as you walk down the aisle.
3. Go Wild!
Wildflowers are your go-to option for a unique floral arrangement – choose in-season blooms to ensure you stay in budget and highlight the beauty of the season. Opt for a cascading or pageant shaped bouquet for a fuller and more graceful design.
4. Skip the Traditional Invitations
Introduce guests to your theme by bringing creativity to your wedding invitations. Whether it’s a concert ticket, a vintage scroll, or even a puzzle piece – choose a design that really speaks to you and your partner.
5. Preserve Cherished Memories
Instead of having guests sign a conventional guestbook, do something a bit more outside the box. A cute rustic bench where you and your spouse will get to spend many memories is the perfect place to keep your loved ones’ best wishes.
6. Make Your Wedding Twinkle with Fairy Lights
Nothing says fairytale vows like glittering lights. If you want your night to shine like the light of a thousand fairies, string twinkle lights around your reception venue.
7. Find Whimsy in the Fine Details
Delight your wedding guests (and yourself!) by adorning your tables with cute details. Scattered rose petals and rosemary sprigs will add a magical touch to your table.
8. Go Green with a Garden Party
Nothing says whimsical like a garden wedding. Surround yourself and your guests with lush greenery and take advantage of trendy flower crowns to blend in with the natural beauty.
9. Opt for a Unique Venue
If an outdoor soirée is not exactly your cup of tea, why not consider having your reception inside a tent? This couple chose a circus-themed event, paired up with twinkling lights and carnival games.
10. Include Your Pet In Your Nuptials
Assign your pupper the role of ring bearer or flower girl – or even have him walk you down the aisle! Who better to accompany you to the altar than your best furry pal?
11. Forget Ordinary Food Stations
Take your food stations up a notch (and then some) by thinking of cute ways to serve snacks. These hanging terrariums will add a fun and festive touch of nature to your wedding day.
12. Wish Upon a Lantern
Turn the night into a magical affair by sending off paper lanterns into the sky. As the floating lanterns fly off into the sky encourage guests to make a wish.
