When I was a little girl I wanted to be a ballerina. My grandma took me to see The Nutcracker and I was mesmerised by the soft and beautiful outfits, the graceful movements and the excitement that welled up within me.
Ballet dates back to the 15th century and has survived the centuries, it has seen every era since and is the perfect art form in which to find vintage inspiration from any decade. I’ve put together a ballet-inspired mood board to get your creative juices flowing – I may not have the coordination to be an actual ballerina, but anyone can get the look with a little imagination!
You don’t have to wear a full on tutu and ballet slippers to be a ballerina bride. Take the gorgeous look as modelled above and pull it back to wedding sophistication. One way to do that is to take the look from pink to peach, and add subtle hints of grey to go pastel pretty. Here are a few ways you can bring ballerina chic to your big day!
