As artists, designers are going to pull their inspiration from elements all around them, one of them being the theater, and more specifically, the ballet. The ballet, being so timeless, feminine and filled with sparkly and soft costumes is an obvious form of inspiration for bridal fashion and our designers are using it to create the most beautiful wedding day looks with these ballerina gowns.

These Maggie Sottero gowns, available at Suzanne’s Bridal Boutique, are taking us back to our childhood days of dancing about in pink tutus and ballerina buns. Paired with matte ivory bridesmaids dresses and lush florals, these ballerina gowns represent the modern day fairytale. We definitely suggest throwing in a flower crown for good measure.

Pronovias blew us away with their feathered gowns that look like they walked right out of Swan Lake and on to the bridal fashion runways. With a feathered bodice and soft skirts, they successfully marry couture with romance and create a whimsical look that will have you practically twirling down the aisle. Find Pronovias gowns locally at Bridal Boutique of Arizona and Grace Style & Bridal.

When we think Sleeping Beauty, we are immediately taken with ivy and floral details, soft skirts and cool-toned colors, which is why we are swooning over these Lillian West and Enzoani gowns. Lillian West, available at Grace Style & Bridal, mastered the art of grouping floral appliqué and sequins and then subtly having them trickle down the bodice and through the skirt. Matched with a sweetheart neckline and A-line silhouette, this gown has us dancing to “Once Upon a Dream”. Then Enzoani, available at Uptown Bridal & Boutique, came and stole our hearts with his natural waistline, detailed top, and romantically flowing skirt. This ballerina gown complete with soft curls and sequined heels is the ultra romantic look for a garden wedding.
