I just love the details a ballerina and a bride share… both command an audience and take center stage ever so gracefully. A little girl dreams of twirling in her wedding gown just like she pirouettes under the spotlight in her tutu at her first ballet recital. The significance of a bridal party is just like the corps to the lead soloist in Balanchine’s version of Swan Lake. The fabrics used in costuming and bridal wear are similar with the use of luxuriously draped tulles and silks adorned with pearls and rhinestones. Many times a bride will wear her hair in a low chignon just as a ballerina pins her hair back in a perfect bun. A bride is given a bouquet of sweet flowers to carry with her down the aisle just as a ballerina is given roses for an exquisite performance. This color palette is sweet and sophisticated with keeping true to this bridal inspiration. I just loved the similarities and couldn’t help but share some inspiring pictures with you!
