29 Enchanting Ways to Have a Rapunzel Themed Wedding

Whether you love Tangled or the traditional story, here's how you can incorporate this classic fairytale into your wedding day

If Rapunzel is your favourite Disney princess, then how about turning your wedding into a fairytale and adding details inspired by the golden haired icon? Whether you’re in love with the traditional story or are forever watching Tangled on repeat (we LOVE the film here at Hitched HQ!) then read on for our guide to having a magical Rapunzel themed wedding.

To sprinkle some magic into your wedding ceremony, take a look at our favourite Disney quotes which can be included in your readings.


Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let Down Your Hair….

The best way to nail Rapunzel inspired wedding beauty is to imitate that famously long hair. Even if you’re not blessed with miles of golden hair, you can still achieve the look by getting your hairdresser to add extensions to your mane.

We absolutely adore this bride’s gorgeously ethereal look, shot by Jennifer Sinclair Photography in a Rapunzel inspired photo shoot. This look is more Tangled than traditional, as Rapunzel sports a similar plait adorned with flowers in the 2010 movie.

You don’t even need to have super long hair to pull off a Tangled themed wedding – give a subtle nod to the movie by wearing a pretty side plait. This kind of style is the perfect wedding hairstyle for curly haired brides, as wavy hair lends itself well to a relaxed plait.

Thought that a Rapunzel themed wedding was just for blonde brides? Wrong! Just take a look at this beautiful bride’s breath taking look – her jet black locks have been weaved into a Tangled-esque style with the addition of red roses for a romantic touch.

If the thought of a plait gives you unwanted flashbacks to your school days, then how about rocking a half up half down wedding hairstyle instead? To achieve Rapunzel’s fun-loving style, take note from this stunning bride and tong loose waves into your hair for movement and texture.

If your Rapunzel themed day will be held at a summer wedding venue, add a flower crown filled with vibrant blooms to a long, side swept hairstyle to highlight the season. This couple get extra points for posing in a field full of purple flowers – which is the colour of Rapunzel’s dress in Tangled!

No matter whether your hair is blonde, black, brunette or red – any bride can rock Rapunzel inspired hair on their wedding day.

This bride’s gorgeous look was created by hair and makeup artist Camilla J Collins and would be perfect for a Tangled themed wedding. For Rapunzel inspired bridal beauty, remember to keep your makeup fresh and pretty – think light washes of pink or nude on the lips and brown eyeliner.

Rapunzel Hairstyle Tips:

  • Keep blonde hair free of brassy tones by using silver shampoo two or three times a week in the run up to your wedding day.
  • For a modern Rapunzel look, straighten long hair for a super sleek finish a la Tangled. Add extensions if you want your hair to reach jaw dropping lengths.
  • Weave an array of colourful flowers into plaited or wavy hair for a pretty hairstyle the princess herself would be jealous of!
  • If you want to incorporate plaits into your wedding hairstyle, there are loads of Youtube tutorials out there for inspiration, or you could ask your hairdresser to experiment with different looks.
  • If you’re committing to dyeing your hair blonde for the occasion, make sure you get it coloured professionally – you definitely won’t want to stare at wedding photos of you sporting orange hair!

The Dress

Alfred Angelo’s Disney bridalwear collection is a must for fairytale obsessed brides. Their Rapunzel wedding dress is an absolute dream come true – this sparkly wedding dress features glitzy gold embroidery over a classic and feminine A-line shape. 


If the previous style is not for you, boho wedding dresses are another way to achieve the Rapunzel look. The stunning 8547 wedding dress from Alfred Angelo has on trend high-low hem and the most delicate lace detailing. This relaxed style of dress is crying out to be paired with the hairstyles we featured above. If your venue allows it, walk down the aisle barefoot if you really want to go all out with the theme. 


The beautiful 11456 wedding dress from Ellis Bridals combines subtle yet timeless nods to Rapunzel’s A-line cap sleeve dress in Tangled, yet the design is kept contemporary for the bride who wants to feel like a modern day princess. 


Find Your Very Own Fairytale Tower

The enchanting Horsley Park in Surrey would be the perfect venue for you to marry your prince in. Boasting 70 acres of parkland, a great hall and it’s very own Rapunzel-style tower, this venue is sure to make all your dreams come true.

Seeing as a lot of Tangled is set outside – find the next best thing to an enchanted forest and pick Kew Gardens as the venue for your Rapunzel themed wedding. One of the Garden’s courtyards is surrounded by a surreal tangle of twisted trees and branches with flowers that provide pops of purple.

To browse more venues inspired by Rapunzel and Flynn’s journey to the castle in Tangled, take a look at our favourite woodland wedding venues.


What is a fairytale without a castle? The Mercure Ardoe House Hotel is a spectacular castle wedding venue in Aberdeen that looks like it’s come to life from the pages of a story book. The many turrets and spires along with the secluded countryside vibe creates one seriously magical place to say your ‘I dos’.


Enchanting Wedding Cakes

Recreate the iconic moment that Rapunzel ‘lets down her hair’ for her prince with an amazing floral wedding cake that has a cascade of blooms from top to bottom – the taller the cake the better. Ps. we think flowers are best for highlighting this movie moment – no one wants hair in their cake after all!

This Rapunzel wedding cake topper from AcrylicDesignForYou is the perfect ode to your very own love story.


This wedding cake from Bake Rattle N Roll is the most enchanting sweet treat we’ve ever laid eyes on. ‘And they lived happily ever after’ is emblazoned across the tower of tiers and the crowning glory is the mini castle cake topper – which even lights up!


Tangled Inspired Details

This stunning bridal bouquet was used in Jennifer Sinclair’s Rapunzel themed shoot that we featured above. A variety of purple flowers such as a peonies and roses are perfect for this theme. Add in cream flowers and some foliage to give the bouquet more of a vintage look.

A hanging display of summer wedding flowers would make a stunning centrepiece at a Rapunzel themed reception. The ethereal look of this display gives a nod to Rapunzel’s hairstyle when she arrives at the castle in Tangled, plus your guests just won’t be able to stop staring at it.

Get your best girls kitted out in purple bridesmaid dresses if you want this to be the focal point of your colour scheme. We think the Kelsey Rose 50186 dress would be the perfect Tangled look for your maids. 


To pull off subtle Rapunzel inspired details at your reception without making it feel too much like a ‘theme’, just add small pops of purple to your décor – like flower petals scattered across the tables.

We love a wedding sign here at Hitched HQ – even more so if it’s fairytale themed. Hang up this wedding sign from The Wedding of My Dreams to set the mood for your ‘happily ever after’.

Recreate The Floating Lanterns

There’s an iconic scene in Tangled where Rapunzel and love interest Flynn are sat watching a sky full of floating lanterns drift up into the air – it’s also where the pair almost share their first kiss!

There are lots of ways to rehash this magical scene at your wedding day. Arrange for you and your guests to release sky lanterns into the air after the reception, or purchase some decorative paper lanterns from Wedding in a Teacup to create the most romantic mood.


If the weather is forecasted to be a no-go for releasing sky lanterns, find out if your venue can be decorated in lots of fairy lights instead. This will make your guests feel like their sitting under an illuminated sky.

A Ceremony Reading Inspired by Rapunzel and Flynn

We love this beautiful quote from the lantern scene in Tangled. If your partner is the Flynn Rider to your Rapunzel, incorporate this romantic quote into one of the readings at your ceremony for an extra sweet moment.
