20 Fairytale Princess Wedding Gowns

Jordan Lined Tulle Bridal Skirt by Rebecca Schoneveld

Since this is the month of fairytale inspiration on SBB, I couldn’t let it go by without talking ballgowns! Because when you think of a princess bride, the classic ballgown silhouette is immediately what comes to mind.
