Beauty and the Beast Style Inspiration – Ceremony and Reception

I’ve always been a big fan of Beauty and the Beast. I may or may not have a Belle crown that I bought at Disney World a few years back (and yes, wore the whole time). But ever since the news that they are making a live-action Beauty and the Beast movie (gasp!) starring Emma Watson (double gasp!), I had to do this theme.

Let’s agree on the colors to be gold and ivory/cream, with lots of red roses! This wedding will be gorgeous. But it won’t overshadow you, I promise.


Well, first of all, this picture needs to happen. ‘Nuff said. Photo: Inspired by Dis.


I love these table settings from Disney Weddings. I love the gold napkins and the rose on top, even love the goblets. Now, I’m going to suggest not using the gold plates (as amazing as they are) and switching to something else (I’m thinking vintage-looking china), mostly because the plates will be too much gold once they are sitting on…



…these! I love love love these table linens from Southern Weddings. The gold is just the right touch without being too overpowering, as gold can do sometimes. But what will the centerpieces on these beautiful tables be?


I see so many centerpieces of the Enchanted Rose idea, and while the little girl in me jumps with glee when I see them, they tend to be a little cheesy. And I think most women would rather feel mature and graceful at their weddings. Agreed? So that’s why I absolutely adore this centerpiece from The Bridal Detective. They have the iconic idea from the movie but in an adult and beautiful way that is far from cheesy.


These are perfect. In so many ways. I almost don’t want to eat them. This theme was just asking for these to be made, and Wedding Dash answered the call. For that, I am forever grateful.


This cake from Disney Weddings is gorgeous! Personally, as much as I love the Beauty and the Beast, I would probably add a different cake topper just to keep away from the cheese factor.

Now, where will you get married? A creepy-looking castle in the middle of the woods in France that houses a Prince that everyone in the village apparently forgot existed? Nah. I have a better idea.

The Black Horse Inn in Warrenton is a great option! It’s quaint in a way that the village Belle lived in was (although let’s hope there’s no one named Gaston hanging out there). It’s gorgeous in a way that makes Belle’s name seem fitting. And you can play with horses that they’ll probably let you name Phillipe for the day if you so choose. What could be better?
