The Cake

We’re obsessed with Disney wedding cakes here at hitched - add some luxe gold touches to the mix and we’re hooked! This gorgeous cake is a dream come true thanks to an elegant cake topper from ThePinkOwlDesgns, featuring those iconic words from the film.

This amazing wedding cake from Mischief Maker is inspired by the stained glass windows from Beauty and the Beast, giving just a subtle reference to the Disney classic. Unusual wedding cakes are all the rage right now and we think that this dramatic design would be perfect for an unconventional wedding day.

This beautiful silhouette cake topper from Customorderhouse represents one of the most iconic scenes from the film and we adore it. If you’re inspired by this romantic movie moment, you could even recreate it in your first dance and plan a routine to the classic Disney wedding song ‘Tale as Old as Time’.

Here’s another stained glass inspired beauty that almost looks too good to eat. Made by Daisy Molly and Me, the eye catching pop of yellow gives a nod to Belle’s ball gown.

How cute are these Belle and Beast cake toppers? Featuring the outfits from that classic ballroom scene, they would make a seriously romantic addition to your cake – or any part of the décor at a Beauty and the Beast inspired wedding for that matter.

The Dress

Belle gave us serious dress envy when she twirled around the ballroom wearing that stunning gold gown. If Belle is your style icon when it comes to bridalwear, then get ready to fall in love with Alfred Angelo’s collection of Disney wedding dresses. Their Belle wedding dress is a dreamy ode to the beloved character with its breathtaking layered skirt and glittering gold detail.

For a different take on the dress, take a look at this beautiful design from Monique Lhuillier. The off the shoulder neckline and luxurious satin material give a contemporary nod to Belle’s look, but the mermaid silhouette is ideal if you’re not keen on the voluminous skirt.

The Groom

If you can’t convince him to wear the blue and gold get-up that Beast rocked in the movie (okay granted – it’s a tough look to pull off), then you could reach a compromise by getting him to wear a blue or navy suit with yellow accessories. It’s a totally modern take on the look that would still fit right in with a Beauty and the Beast wedding.

The Flowers

The stunning sunflower wedding bouquet from Laura and Carl’s real wedding is inspirational for its vibrant colour palette of blue and yellow – the ideal combination for a Beauty and the Beast wedding. Choose bold and beautiful yellow flowers and mix accents of blue into the bouquet.

If you’re taking floral inspiration from Beast’s enchanted rose, consider a romantic rose bouquet to pair with your dress. This stunning one from Moutan has the most breathtaking wash of blush pink – the same colour as the rose in the film.

The Décor

You can’t have a Beauty and the Beast wedding and not include a rose somewhere in the decor! The enchanted rose in a vase is one of the most recognisable elements of the film, and it's also simple to recreate as a wedding table decoration. Add fairy lights or candles around this centrepiece to create even more of a captivating atmosphere.

Give Mrs. Potts a starring role in your day by using her as your centrepiece inspiration. Take note from this awesome and budget friendly wedding idea and create a DIY wedding centrepiece by filling a china teapot with a pretty arrangement of pink and blue flowers.

If you’re both as literature obsessed as Belle is, take inspiration from her love of books and include them in your day. This vintage themed wedding décor looks utterly striking. The birdcage and rustic elements work so well with the books, giving a subtle nod to the film.

If Lumiere is your favourite character, then you’re sure to love this exquisite gold candelabra from Within Home. Drape flowers or foliage over it to highlight the woodland scenes or use it on its own to create a soft and romantic, candlelit atmosphere.

How pretty is this gold wedding sign? Guests old and young alike will recognise the iconic quote and are sure to admire the stunning illustration too. Prop it on your gift table or by your wedding cake display for a simple yet elegant movie reference.

Embrace the gold and yellow elements in Beauty and the Beast with a breathtaking centrepiece like this one. The yellow flowers are so visually striking and they look amazing paired with the ornate gold basket, frame and tablecloth.

A single flower petal placed on each table setting is such a simple but beautiful idea, highlighting the falling flower petals from the film’s enchanted rose. Place one delicately on a crisp white wedding napkin or go for a contemporary look by contrasting pink petals with a gold tablecloth.

Belle rocked a stunning hairstyle in the film, finished off with an elegant headband that complemented her dress. Replicate Belle’s ‘do by asking your hair stylist for a pretty and universally flattering half up half down wedding hairstyle. Finish off by popping a hair accessory in the crown of your locks, like this headband from Sash & Co.

Belle wears head to toe gold in the ballroom scene, including her accessories. To copy her glamorous look, consider jewellery made from yellow gold with stones such as citrine or yellow topaz, like this pair of drop earrings from Mounir London.

The Bridesmaids

Give a striking look to your Beauty and the Beast inspired wedding by filling your day with bold blue details, like cobalt blue bridesmaid dresses for your best girls. This versatile colour is so easy to pull off at any time of year too.

The Venue

If you're a book lover who identifies with Belle, just imagine how incredible it would be if you tied the knot in an actual library wedding venue? The historic Stanbrook Abbey could make this dream come true, as you and your guests can mingle and have drinks in the cosy library of this 16th century monastery. Imagine the picture opportunities!
