Create your own version of an enchanted forest like the medieval, fairy-tale-themed wedding of founding Facebook president Sean Parker. The groom and his bride Alexandra Lenas chose Big Sur, California, as the location for their dreamy nuptials.

Make your guests feel like they are in a faraway land by using a color palette of earth tones, pops of rich burgundy and purple, and accents of wood and leather. These elements will help to create a magical setting for your special day, in any location.

Forest-Inspired Décor
Pick an element from nature and use it throughout your theme; wood, leaves, and branches all make great wedding motifs that also create unique design details. Take your wedding theme to the next level by requesting that your guests dress-up accordingly. By having your attendees all dress in a certain color or type of outfit, they instantly become part of your décor.

Bohemian-Chic Bridal Attire
You can never go wrong with a lace-sleeved wedding dress. This feminine, classic style provides coverage while staying on-trend. If you have lace in your dress, choose a wedding shoe with a lace-like pattern as well. Whether beaded, patterned, or actual lace, this will seamlessly tie your look together. Don't be afraid to wear wrist jewelry with a long-sleeved wedding gown. Have your sleeves hemmed up a little shorter so that you can wear a great statement cuff or bracelet. If you are getting married outdoors, make sure your bouquet reflects your surroundings. Ask your florist for a bouquet that looks handpicked for a sweet touch.
