CINDERELLA WEDDING DRESS: FIVE BRIDAL LOOKS FOR A DREAMY WEDDING
Ah, the Cinderella wedding dress. We all know it for its ball gown skirt, tight bodice, off-the-shoulder sleeves, sweetheart neckline, and just the right amount of sparkle. It really is what dreams are made of, isn't it?
Well, on your wedding day, you can make this dream come true. It's one of the few days a woman can dress like a princess, so we love that you're going for it! (However, while we’re on the topic, can we normalize dressing like a princess more often?)
💙 Five Cinderella Dresses to Wow Your Prince Charming 💫
You're here to see some options, right? Look no further. Here are five stunning Cinderella wedding dresses to complete your dreamy wedding. Bippidi-boppidi-boo!
1. Mesh embroidered ball gown with sweetheart neckline
We know you want a ball gown if you're searching for a Cinderella wedding dress. A voluminous skirt is what made her dress so quintessential, after all. So you'll be seeing a lot of ball gowns today.
This first one features an exceptionally full skirt. It's perfect for the gals who really want to capture this dramatic princess silhouette. (There's a bonus for doing so: wearing a big full skirt makes your waist look that much smaller!)
Cinderella's iconic gown also has a sweetheart neckline. As the name suggests, it looks like the top of the heart. But to modernize the look, this dress skips the puff sleeves and offers a sleek strapless bodice.
2. Long sleeve mesh ball gown with corset back
If your wedding is as lavish as the Cinderella ball, then you'll love the look of this Cinderella wedding dress.
First, we have to talk about its cut-away long sleeves. Don't they look like Cinderella's gloves?! It creates a regal look—without having to wear gloves and feel constricted. (Don't you love when things come together effortlessly?)
Second, it has a corset back. Cinderella was set in the 19th century and corsets were all the rage during that time period! Your Cinderella wedding dress will look oh-so-authentic.
Want to dial up the heat? Then check out that neckline! Yes, it's a sweetheart shape—but with a sheer deep-v. It's just the right amount of spice to make your Cinderella look unique.
3. Mesh ball gown with long puff sleeves
Cinderella's off-the-shoulder puff sleeves are famous on their own. If you envision some iconic sleeves for your Cinderella wedding dress, then you have to see these next two options.
For the ladies who love the "puff" of Cinderella sleeves, this dress' sleeves offer the volume you're looking for. But instead of being short, they're long—and sheer. This creates a very fashion-forward version of the original Cinderella dress.
You can also bring your personal style through the accessories. While Cinderella wears a simple headband, you can wear something bolder and ornate like this headpiece. It's your wedding, after all!
4. Lace embellished ball gown with cap sleeves
For the brides who want traditional Cinderella sleeves without the "puff," this is the Cinderella wedding dress for you!
Cap sleeves have and always will create a regal touch. Even today, we see modern royals, like Kate Middleton, rocking this style of sleeves. Paired with a sweetheart neckline, you've got yourself a Cinderella-inspired look!
Lace is always our go-to if you want to add romantic touches. A bodice with delicate lace embroidery, beads, and glitter will make your Cinderella wedding dress come to life. Complete your look by pulling your hair back in a chic bun.
5. Tulle ball gown with ruffled skirt and sheer details
Love the look of Cinderella's original dress but looking for a fresh, modern take? Here's a Cinderella wedding dress with your name on it.
First, let's talk about the main event: its tulle skirt. It's just as voluptuous as a traditional ball gown skirt but more airy, thanks to its layered ruffles. Ruffles are very on trend right now, so wearing a dress like this will show you have an eye for style.
Right now, the fashion world is also embracing anything sheer. This dress has a sheer deep-V neckline and back. It's super sexy while not being too revealing. (We think your Prince Charming will approve!)
