How to Put Together a Whimsical Wedding

The idea of a whimsical wedding captures the imagination and evokes a sense of enchantment and fantasy.

From the dress to the decor, every element should reflect a blend of elegance and fairy-tale charm. If you're dreaming of a wedding that's both sophisticated and magical, but aren’t quite sure where to begin or how to put one into play, here's a comprehensive guide to help you bring your vision to life.

Selecting the Perfect Whimsical Wedding Dress

The wedding dress sets the tone for the entire event. Here at Andrea & Leo Couture, we offer an array of stunning wedding gowns that perfectly embody the whimsical elegance you're aiming for.

1. Ball Gowns

Ball gowns are the epitome of fairy-tale weddings. Look for dresses with voluminous skirts, delicate lace appliqués, and intricate beading. These elements add a touch of royal elegance and create a dramatic, princess-like silhouette.

2. A-Line Dresses

A-Line dresses offer a versatile and flattering fit, combining whimsy with elegance. Opt for gowns with floral appliqués, illusion necklines, and sheer sleeves to enhance the enchanting feel.

3. Mermaid Gowns

For a blend of elegance and sensuality, mermaid gowns are a great choice. These dresses hug the body and flare out at the knees, creating a striking silhouette. Look for off-shoulder designs and subtle sparkles to add whimsy.

4. Fairy-Tale Inspired Dresses

These dresses are designed to make you feel like you've stepped out of a storybook. Look for gowns with voluminous skirts, intricate beading, and romantic lace overlays. Off-the-shoulder necklines and fitted bodices enhance the princess-like appeal.

5. Ethereal and Light Dresses

If you prefer a lighter, more ethereal look, consider dresses made of tulle, chiffon, or organza. These fabrics create a floating, airy effect. Look for designs with layered skirts, delicate embroidery, and subtle shimmer.

Tips for Selecting Your Dress:

  • Consider the Venue: Your dress should complement the wedding setting. A garden or forest venue pairs well with floral appliqués and lighter fabrics.
  • Think About Comfort: Ensure you can move comfortably in your dress, especially if you plan on dancing.
  • Personal Style: Choose a dress that reflects your personality. Whether you prefer classic elegance or bohemian charm, make sure it feels like you.

By focusing on these styles and features, you can find the perfect whimsical wedding dress that will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a fairy-tale. Our unique and diverse collection ensures that every bride can find a gown that captures the essence of her dream wedding!

Decorating Tips for a Whimsical Wedding

While the dress is a key part of any wedding theme, there are other important elements to consider as well:

Venue Selection

Choose a venue that naturally exudes whimsy, such as a botanical garden, a charming countryside estate, or an enchanting forest. Outdoor settings with lush greenery and natural beauty provide the perfect backdrop for a whimsical wedding.

Color Palette

Opt for a soft and romantic color palette with pastel shades like blush pink, lavender, mint green, and ivory. Accents of gold or silver can add a touch of glamour. Incorporate these colors into your floral arrangements, table settings, and bridal party attire.

Floral Arrangements

Use an abundance of flowers to create a whimsical atmosphere. Think cascading bouquets, floral arches, and hanging floral installations. Wildflowers, peonies, roses, and hydrangeas are great choices for a whimsical wedding.


Soft, ambient lighting is key to setting a magical mood. Use fairy lights, lanterns, and candles to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Chandeliers and string lights hanging from trees can add a touch of enchantment to outdoor settings.

Decor Elements

Incorporate whimsical decor elements such as vintage birdcages, antique mirrors, and ornate picture frames. Mismatched china, vintage teacups, and lace table runners can add to the charm. Personalize your decor with handmade signs, whimsical stationery, and custom place cards.

Ceremony Backdrop

Create a stunning ceremony backdrop with a floral arch, draped fabric, or a whimsical structure like a gazebo adorned with greenery and flowers. This will be the focal point of your ceremony and provide a beautiful setting for your vows.

Additional Tips for a Whimsical Wedding

Invitations and Stationery

Set the tone from the start with whimsical wedding invitations. Choose designs that feature floral motifs, calligraphy, and watercolor illustrations. Carry this theme through to your seating charts, menus, and programs.


Consider unique entertainment options such as a string quartet, a harpist, or a folk band to enhance the whimsical atmosphere.

For added fun, you could include lawn games or a photo booth with whimsical props.

Cake and Desserts

Opt for a wedding cake that reflects your whimsical theme. Naked cakes adorned with fresh flowers, or multi-tiered cakes with intricate designs and pastel colors, are great choices. Complement the cake with a dessert table featuring macarons, cupcakes, and other sweet treats.


Send your guests home with whimsical wedding favors such as mini potted plants, custom candles, or personalized bookmarks. These small touches will leave a lasting impression and remind them of your magical day.
