Baby Aurora was cursed by an evil fairy when she was young and according to this evil fairy, Aurora will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die on her sixteenth birthday. Rude, evil fairy. Rude. This girl should be getting her driver’s license but instead she’s sewing. But good old Merryweather – one of the three good fairies – softens the curse by instead having Aurora fall into an enchanted sleep, only to be awakened by true love’s kiss. She later meets Prince Phillip in the forest, where she falls in love and does not disclose her name, realizing she can’t give that information away to a perfect stranger. So she naturally followed that thought up by giving him her address. Long story short, she falls into an enchanted sleep and Phillip wakes her up with true love’s kiss. If you want to bring this sleeping beauty into your wedding day, we’ve got a few ideas for you:
Emulate Aurora’s bright pink dress by carrying an arrangement of beautiful bright roses down the aisle with you. These are a modern choice, yet still bring a romantic touch to the big day.
You must set the tone of your nuptials by sending out the appropriate invitations. This Briar Rose Invitation – Aurora is perfect for evoking the princess. The bright pink roses add a soft touch to the elegant text and are inspired by Aurora’s awakening.
Princess Aurora has been sleeping for quite awhile, so she didn’t have time to put on much makeup – and she still looks beautiful. Evoke this simple and natural bridal look by applying soft amounts of makeup. Less is more! Some blush, mascara and pink lip gloss are three essential tools for looking like the princess.
The ideal location, of course, would be a castle. But if you can’t manage that, go for a rustic venue decorated with lots of flowers and natural greenery to evoke the forest that Aurora and her prince first met.
The venue isn’t the only wedding element that deserves flowers and lush greenery – these things belong on your cake too! Just take it from this stunning confection found on Pinterest. Top it off with Aurora and Prince Phillip figurines and you’re set.
