Steal the style from famous fairytales
Every bride wants to look and feel like a princess on her wedding day, so what better way to do this than to steal the style of some of the most well-known princesses around — fairytale princesses! We’ve taken three of our favourite fairytale princesses and recreated their style so it’s perfect for your wedding.
One of the most classic fairytale princesses ever, Cinderella’s style can be emulated with the gorgeous style 17718 from Victoria Jane. Cinderella’s ball gown features bold shoulder detail — recreate this in the modern way with the glittering shoulders on the 17718. A classic ballerina bun and vintage inspired glittering headband, from Hayley Goodrich Accessories, completes the look. The tiara can be turned into a statement necklace — a way to include Cinderella’s trademark choker. Glass slippers aren’t the most conventional choice, but you can try and recreate the look with these mirrored shoes from Crystal Couture... just don’t leave one behind!
After much arguing from her fairy godmothers, Sleeping Beauty is dressed in a classic A-line gown with sleeves. The fairy godmothers disagree over the colouring, so to stay on the safe side we’ve kept our choice a bridal white. The Ubaldi from Pronovias has elegant sleeves and a simple structure, making it the perfect choice for the unassuming princess. Leave your hair long and loose, and topped with a statement tiara, like this one from Carlize Bam Jewellery and Accessories. Add a princess worthy touch of glitz with these glittering Benjamin Adams shoes.
Belle from Beauty and the Beast
Belle is a quiet and bookish princess, according to the old French fairytale, who wows in her extraordinary golden ball gown. The Decadence gown by Maggie Sottero is the perfect choice if you want to steal Belle’s style, with her characteristic off the shoulder straps and glittering opulent detail. She also works the half up, half down hairstyle perfectly, setting up the trend for brides and princesses everywhere. Belle keeps her look simple, with subtle accessories and a pink lip, letting the dress speak for itself. Pay homage to Belle’s trademark style with stylish blue shoes from Aruna Seth — they can double up as your ‘something blue’ too! Add this understated headband from Vintij Blue to complete the look.
