Wedding Dress Fit for a PrincessOn January 20, 2020 by U.Hidayat
Fondness of fairy tales can lead to a dream of feeling like a princess during a woman’s wedding. Of course, this starts with choosing the right princess wedding dress which is usually like a ball gown. These wedding dresses are inspired by princesses in fairy tales like Cinderella, the classic Princess Diana or the modern day princess in the likes of Kate Middleton.
The classic princess dress has puffy short sleeves with long gloves. Juliet sleeves of course can depict a princess like dress with long sleeves that is puffy just in the upper arm near the shoulders and are fitted down to the wrist. Poet sleeves could also be used which resembles the Shakespearian era. It is fitted in the forearm and extends in a flare. For a modern princess look, a sweetheart neckline can be more appropriate where two arcs cover the fullness of the bust that meets in a V-shaped center.
The color of the dress is not limited to just white or ivory. One could be playful by using pastel or very light colors that are cool in the eyes. It can have a normal waist line just about two inches below the belly button then puffs into ball gown that can be layered or with a petticoat to make it fuller and heavier. A dramatic A-line with vertical panels can be used for an elongated effect. To make a more regal presence, the train of the dress can extend beyond five feet on the floor.
The key here is to be regal and not over the top. It should highlight femininity which can be modest or with a bit edge. The dress can be made of silk for more flow or satin and taffeta for layering. Ruffles could also be incorporated to make it fuller. Beadings and patchworks are minimal since the focus is on the cut and layering of fabrics.
And finally, what item can be as more princess-like but a tiara or a crown. A crown can be worn with or without a veil. This headpiece not only shows royalty but also is useful in holding the veil in place. A tiara, on the other hand, is a headpiece similar to a crown but smaller and not in full circle.
