Modish Ballerina Bride!

with 3 comments

No, Not Me…I’m Not That Graceful!

But I know a few brides out there who are, so why not incorporate it into your wedding and dance the night away…after all, that’s one of the things you do best, right?  This idea was inspired by this gorgeous shot by the Memory Journalists team in California…

Tippy-toe your way through the bridal shops to find your ballerina-like tulle dress, or browse around places such as Etsy where I found THIS totally cool dress:

Perhaps you could even deck out your bridesmaids in tulle slips by Your Slip Is Showing or tulle skirts by Wheels And Doll Baby.  Think adorable little tutus by Etsy seller Jiniaj for not just your flower girl, but maybe your dog or cat too (ok, maybe not your cat, she might scratch your eyeball out if you tried to dress her in a tutu!  Reeeowww!).

Throw your hair up in a classic or funky bun by adorning it with some fun feathers like this bride did, as shown on The Knot.  A hair piece like the one below could easily even replace the traditional veil:

 Get on your dancing shoes with gorgeous ballet shoes by Repetto.  Or, shop around for others such as these gorgeous ballerina inspired shoes:


(Top Row:  Stuart Weitzman Nitetime, Paris Hilton Epic, Luichiny Duchess Silver SatinSecond Row:  J Crew Jeweled Jelly, Jessica Simpson LezlyThird Row:  Johnathan Kayne Miami, Touch Ups Mandy.)

 You mind as well turn your bridesmaids into ballerinas too! I absolutely love the affordable ballet slipper shoes from Old Navy.  Let your girls be comfy and they’ll love you even more!  Or, head over to to find thousands of pairs in the style you have in your mind.  You can even upload a picture of a shoe you find in a magazine, and will show you results of shoes similar to that shoe…such a fun way to shop!

For all the other details, just keep your eyes and your mind open.  Think tulle.  Think pink.  Perhaps you could wrap your cake stand in a tutu like this cupcake tutu stand from Pink Cake Box.  That is, if your fiance agrees to it…ha ha.  Hey, if not, it could always be done for your bridal shower, right? 

Whatever you choose, have fun with it.  Whether it’s classic, goth, white, pink, black make it your own style and it’ll surely be a hit!

  2. Thanks for the mention Jamie! I loved that this particular bride wore her ballet slippers. Did you see today’s Dynamite Wedding post?

    I LOVE LOVE shoes so as you can imagine – I’m inspired to photograph each and every pair as if they are precious cargo!
