Have you dreamed of being a real life Princess someday and having a Cinderella wedding? Now that Prince Charming has swept you off your feet, its time to plan your big day with a Cinderella themed wedding. This style of wedding is based on the rags-to-riches storybook tale of a beautiful princess who finds her true love with the help of her Fairy Godmother. Now you may not have a Fairy Godmother in your life, but you will have so many options to choose from when it comes to planning your own fairytale wedding.

A Princess/Cinderella themed wedding is all about lots of magic and glitz. The first place you can create this is with your wedding invitations. There are many choices in Cinderella themed wedding invitations, such as castle, coach or even shoe shaped cards. Pick one that makes you feel extra Cinderella-ish and make sure to include lots of glitter inside so when the invitation recipient opens the card the glitter will tumble out like magic dust.

If you are going for the Cinderella wedding look, you will want to find a wedding dress, shoes and other accessories only fit for royalty.

Think Princess Dianna when choosing your wedding gown. With her long flowing bodice, sheer princess sleeves and lots of jewels, your wedding gown should be spectacular. Then top it with a crystal tiara, lots of jewels and a pair of clear shoes with lots of crystals. If you are planning a winter wedding, you can even find gorgeous gowns with velvet or fur embellishments to create even more princess-like glamor.

Location…well of course you will want to be married in a castle. But you don’t live in a kingdom so you will have to improvise a little. Your castle can be anywhere, with lots of space to include castle themed murals or decor. You may be able to find a lodge or church with that medieval look or arches. If you have the money, you can look into booking a destination wedding and get married in a real castle in Europe. Either way, be sure to have a red carpet rolled out for your royal-ness on your big day.
