The mystical ambience of an elven-styled wedding combines the fairy-tale aspect of beauty with the rustic nature of the outdoors. This theme rooted in a medieval-like setting offers wedding decorators a chance to get creative with colour, outdoor elements and soft, flowing fabrics. Interweave an elfish theme into your wedding to make it feel like a dream come true.


Anything wooden and carved works well for a elfish theme. Avoid roughly hewn items as this can make your wedding look more country-themed than elfish. Dark wooden chairs, carved bowls and wall decorations will bring your wedding theme to life. Consider using gnarled pieces of drift wood or small dried stumps for centrepieces. Chests with intricate, Irish-themed designs can also add to the ambience. Spray a gathering of stripped tree branches with a shiny shellac, tie a ribbon around them and use it to inspire a woodland environment at your reception.


Elven-styled weddings should make extensive use of flowers as it lends a elegant as well as a natural aspect to a wedding celebration. Flower such as orchids, irises, lillies, hydrangeas and wisteria have uncommon designs and colour combinations that make an elven wedding more elusive. Mix and match flowers with other nature items like ferns, moss, branches, pine cones and grasses. This will soften the elegance of the flowers, alluding to a comfortable and earthy feel.


In "Lord of the Rings" and other fantasy novels, elves are depicted as delicate and ethereal creatures, so use items that mimic their nature and personalities. Vases, perfume bottles, glass lanterns and candle holders can all make a wedding feel more elven. Use glass items that have distinct shapes with floral or swirled etchings designs on the surface. Add soft lighting to a room by using glass candle holders set at varying heights to diffuse the darkness.


The elegance of silver and the solid feel of pewter makes an excellent element to use for elfish wedding decorations. Use beaten pewter goblets, pitchers and platters can work as a decoration as well providing use as a vessel for food and drink. Silver or aluminium statuettes can complement a table full of flowers, while bent and shaped wire baskets or filigree lanterns add an elegant touch to complete your theme. Use metals decorations in the shape of flowers, leaves, pillars and Irish symbols to make your elven theme come to life.
