Gals who loved listening to fairytales growing up and consequently believe that everyone deserves their own version of happily ever after, will love romantic wedding dresses. Tie this in with being a feminine-presenting babe and you're likely someone who adores all things romantic and thus, your aim is to look positively dreamy on your wedding day.
Even if you're not usually a lovey-dovey kind of person, when it comes to the big day, you may want to embrace the romantic vibes of the occasion. Ladies who are looking to channel this aura have plenty of inspiration in the form of popular culture. Who could forget Portia de Rossi's darling wedding dress that featured a blush pink skirt back in 2008? Then in 2015, Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell tied the knot in a dress inspired by Kate Middleton, including divine lacy sleeves. Of course, you can always take style inspo from fictional femmes — Drew Barrymore's character in the late '90s Cinderella inspired movie Ever After, Danielle de Barbarac, is the epitome of whimsical elegance in her gown during the ball scene.
Considering romantic dresses never go out of vogue, there are plenty of styles to choose from. So here are some delightfully romantic wedding dresses to help you feel like a real princess on your wedding day.
