*Stunning Frocks- A ballerina inspiration

Whether you grew up performing Swan Lake or just want to look graceful and elegant on your wedding day, turn to the ballet for inspiration. The styles worn by ballerinas can easily be adapted into beautiful wedding dress.

One of the most iconic ballerina fashions is the tulle skirt. While it might be hard to carry off a stiff tutu walking down the aisle, a soft and floating tulle skirt is a beautiful style for a wedding gown. The ethereal layers of netting will make any bride look as though she is practically floating on air.

Though tulle is the most typical fabric for the ballet-inspired gown there’s a whole range of gossamer sheers like organza, silk organdy, chiffon, and Georgettes that work beautifully. Defined, tulle is a fine mesh netting with a hexagonal pattern that comes in silk, cotton, nylon or acrylic/silk for power netting.

There is one thing that ballerinas are known for that brides should not try to emulate: the emaciated look. Do not worry that you will not look like a graceful swan on your wedding day unless every bone in your body is prominently on display. The feminine and ethereal nature of ballet inspired wedding attire is a pretty look on brides of all shapes and sizes.

Ditte Isager Ballet inspired photo shoot
In search for ballerina inspirations, we came across two gorgeous photo shoots from Ditte Isager and Jessica Claire which are perfect!  For a wedding, it’s a concept we haven’t seen and would love to witness it first hand.  But if you’re not planning a wedding, there is no reason you can’t plan a ballet inspired party!  This theme would be great at a bridal shower, an evening of cocktails with your girlfriends or a birthday party!  To re-create the look, muted pastels should be your color palette mixed with either gold or silver, lots of feathers (think Black Swan) and tulle.
Ditte Isager; LOVE the flower girl outfits!

Ditte Isager; tulle, tulle, and more tulle!

Monique Lhuillier ballet inspired gown (I love the one on the left!), 2012
For a cost efficient dress ($1700) this Watter's "Sydney" dress (2011) also has a ballerina ode with the tulle overlay. Love this!
Watter's style 7541 chiffon dress is flowy-
Just like a ballerina's dress should be! It makes the perfect dress for whatever ballet inspired occasion you attend!

Slip on ballet flats for the full effect! I'm loving these Chloe flats! (They also come in black for the black swan in you!)
Another color we want to introduce into the mix, how about a “barely mint”?  It’s not typically a ballerina color way, it compliments well with the pale pinks, creams, charcoals that are usual ballerina-like colors.  Also, the mint color compliments well for your fellow male beau!  (Sometimes the pink can be too one-sided!)
Sarah Jessica Parker in Dior, Oscars 2009. Don't you just love the color mint, tulle and gold accent?

As for the table setting, this photo shoot by Jessica Claire (jessicaclaire.net) is flawless! We are so loving the idea of tulle skirts for chandeliers (also depicted in the Ditte Isager photo shoot), rosette linens, gold chivalry chairs (complete with tulle skirt) and plus it has a striking balance of vintage meets modern.
