3 Tips to Have a Cinderella Wedding Without Becoming a …


Okay ladies: So you’ve found your Prince Charming and you’re planning that fairy tale wedding. But how can you balance the little girl inside itching to play with the sophisticated woman you’ve become? From wedding favors to dresses, here are some easy ways to turn an easily made cheesy theme into an elegant evening.

What divides mothers and daughters, causes strong manly-men grooms to cry, and can either be a success or an abysmal failure?

The Wedding Dress.
Perhaps what girls fantasize most about being a princess is the fashion. Now that the bride has grown from a girl into a sophisticated modern woman, then she shouldn’t look like she walked out of a renaissance fair. Start with a simple neckline. For example, a sweetheart neckline frames the face and provides just enough lady-like cleavage. Pair the sweetheart neckline with a long full skirt and the bride will look as if she were a true princess. For the more conservative bride, perhaps a boat neck with a long sleeves and detailed lace. Like Grace Kelly’s wedding dress, this look shows true sophistication. The bodice’s tightness still allows the conservative bride to show off her figure and feel sexy.

Full-skirted dresses are perfect for brides who want to accentuate the smallest area of body. By defining the smallest part of your body, the waist, and then creating a straight line created with a full-length skirt, the bride will appear to have an hour-glass figure without overemphasizing any one part of the body.

If your favorite princess is the Little Mermaid, then perhaps the ever-popular mermaid dress is perfect. This dress wraps tightly around the body and flairs out by the feet. Because of the dress’s shape, it resembles a mermaid. These dresses are usually sleeveless and come in many patterns and fabrics.

Brides beware: If you were graced with curves and a large bust then stay away from these dresses. The tightness on top followed by the flair at the bottom will make your hips look wider, and not in the good way. This type of dress is perfect for princess who wants to accentuate hips and give the illusion of a little more oomph in the behind. However, if the curvaceous bride has her heart set on a mermaid dress, then make sure to balance the width of the flair with your hips. The smaller the flair, the larger your hips will look.

Once the dress is locked and loaded everything else should fall into place. Colors are the second most important factor. Yes, pink is the standard color for princess. However, pink is passé. Every princess has something pink. For a more sophisticated, feminine color scheme, use colors like teal, green, turquoise, yellow, silver, gold, and purple. Purple is traditionally associated with royalty and what’s a bride on her wedding day but royalty? These colors (in various shades depending on the season) stray from the standard, typical pink and bring in more color and positive energy to your bridal party.

With your colors and dress updated, you can have even more fun with wedding party favors. Through favors, you could dive deep into your theme. For example, you could use scented dresses as cardholders or diamond shaped paperweights. These favors still reflect the essential princess theme without turning your wedding into a Sweet 16.

But why end the fairy tale with the reception? By giving your guests candles, bottle stoppers or even small liquor bottles as favors, guests can take the party back to their homes.

Remember to keep everything simple. Once things get too crazy and all over the place then the chic princess disappears and the renaissance princess takes her place.
