How to Nail Your Beauty and the Beast Wedding Theme

Absolutely nail your Beauty and the Beast wedding theme by incorporating some of these venue, food, decor and stationery ideas.

Looking to infuse your big day with some fairytale magic? A Beauty and the Beast wedding theme may be perfect for you. From adding candelabra centerpieces to your tables to using the film soundtrack as the playlist for your celebration, there are plenty of ways to weave bits of the story into your event. We’ve rounded up some of our favourites in this list to help you craft your vision.

Here’s how to nail your Beauty and the Beast wedding theme.

Gilded invitations

Use elegant, vintage gilded wedding stationery to invite your guests to your special day. Yes, shimmering foils cost extra, but the final product is totally worth it. P.S. we highly suggest using the line ‘be our guest’ somewhere in your invitations to really make your Beauty and the Beast wedding theme hit home.

Castle wedding venue

You probably won’t be able to find a castle that looks exactly like Beast’s, but you can come pretty close. Head abroad (the UK has more than its fair share) or go with one of these awesome castle wedding venues on Canadian soil.

French Kiss Events

Horse entrance

Ride into your wedding (or away from your wedding) on your very own Phillippe. It’s OK if you can’t find a Belgian draft horse - it’s the idea that counts.

Red rose bouquet

Fill your wedding bouquet with enchanted red roses. If you want to make your arrangement extra whimsical, you can dust it with glitter so it shines like the real deal.

VIntage books

We all know how much Belle loves books! If you do, too, use vintage titles as your wedding aisle markers, centerpieces or to fill any decor-less spaces in your ceremony or reception venue.

Forest photoshoot

Head into the great outdoors to shoot some epic forest wedding portraits.

Bell jar seating chart

The enchanted red rose in the bell jar is probably the most famous floral arrangement in Disney history. If you’re head-over-heels for it, follow this couple’s lead and use a few to create your seating chart.

Antique dresser

If you’re looking for a unique bar or sweet table idea that fits your Beauty and the Beast wedding theme, an antique dresser is it. Yours may not be enchanted like Madame Gaderobe, but it’ll look pretty stunning paired with all your other decorative bits and bobs.

Candelabra centerpieces

Instead of going with traditional floral wedding centerpieces, use candelabras to give a nod to everyone’s favourite cartoon candlestick holder, Lumiere.

Teacups and teapots

Mrs. Potts and Chip are two fan-favourites that you don’t want to forget about, so work some teacups and teapots into your reception. If you want to go the extra mile, you could create a dedicated tea bar or serve your signature cocktails in teacups instead of tumblers.

Magic mirror table numbers

Pretty much every Disney movie, including Beauty and the Beast, involves a magic mirror. We suggest using them to display your table numbers, but if that’s not your style, there are plenty of other ways to work mirrors into your wedding decor.

Woodsy sweetheart table

Create a woodsy sweetheart table for you and your partner complete with Beast pelts, greenery, candelabras, bell jars and more. The more dramatic the better.

French food

To nail your Beauty and the Beast wedding theme, you’re going to need a wedding menu stacked with French fare. If you need inspiration, just look to the song “Be Our Guest,” it mentions soup du jour, hot hors d'oeuvres, beef ragout, cheese soufflé and more, giving you plenty to choose from.

La Cité Francophone

Wedding cake

Tell the story of Beauty and the Beast with your wedding cake - simply ask your baker to work your favourite characters, symbolism and even lines from your favourite songs into the design.

First dance

Make your first dance even more memorable by waltzing around to the most romantic Disney love song out there - “Beauty and the Beast” (AKA the film’s title track). If you want a more modern take, Ariana Grande and John Legend recorded a pop version for the live action movie.
