How to Plan a Beautiful Aladdin-Themed Wedding
Jump on your magic carpet with Apu and Genie, and take a ride to Agrabah for a rich, colourful and absolutely stunning Aladdin-themed wedding. The romantic Disney film set in Arabia provides plenty of inspiration, from Jasmine’s iconic attire, to the Genie’s lamp and the treasures found in the Cave of Wonders.
Check out four Aladdin-themed wedding ideas below!
A Whole New World Wedding Invitations
The notion of going on a journey to a new world is one that all engaged couples can relate to. Using perhaps the most romantic scene from Aladdin as inspiration, have your invitations reflect the journey you and your significant other are about to embark on. The invitations pictured above use jewelled tones and fonts reminiscent of the animated film, with the lovely added touch of the Genie’s lamp for good measure.
Treasure Chest Centrepieces
Make your guests feel as though they have just entered the Cave of Wonders with treasure chest centrepieces. Turn this into a DIY project with supplies from a craft store. Simply use a glue gun to place the colourful jewels and strands of pearls in that ‘just thrown in’ manner.
It’s All About Colour
Truly embrace the Moroccan and Arabic themes from Aladdin with your decor. From Persian rugs to tassels on the chairs, and lanterns on the tables, the photo above is from a reception that has totally embraced the Aladdin theme. If you want something more subtle, think of peacock colours and jewel tones like deep purples, magentas and turquoise. The right draping in the backdrop of the head table can resemble Jasmine’s clothing or the pattern on the magic carpet. And a perfectly place lamp or lantern can go a long way.
Silhouette Cake Topper
Cakes are often the best parts of themed weddings. You can opt for a colourful cakes, with gold detailing and henna-inspired designs, or go with something more simple and use an adorable cake topper like the one pictured above. Both the palace, and Aladdin and Jasmine can be seen here, beautifully placed on a simple, white cake. You can also choose to use just the castle or Jasmine/Aladdin topper for a smaller cake.
