styled around the gown – ballroom princess

If you’re wearing something as regal as this tulle and lace ball gown style wedding dress from Lillian West, there’s really only one way to style it perfectly and that’s with a few touches of Cinderella blue and bling!

Lillian West ball gown wedding dress

  1. Lillian West’s stunner of a gown says ‘ballroom wedding’ in the most alluring way with its layers upon layers of tulle and embellished by a Queen Anne neckline.
  2. To set the stage with a little something blue and let your guests know that something queenly is in store, these gold calligraphy wedding invitations from Written Word Calligraphy work perfectly.
  3. With such a statement wedding dress, you’ll want to keep your accessories beautifully elegant and simple. Enchanted Atelier by Liv Hart has a gorgeous line of headpieces, veils, and darling ribbon bracelets.
  4. Keeping with the Cinderella blue theme, a chic little powder blue wedding cake compliments the ballroom setting well.
  5. Nothing says princess like a little bling on your wedding shoes. This pair from Badgley Mischka (available here) are a peep toe style and have just the right amount of height for you to carry off your Lillian West ball gown style wedding dress.
  6. Nothing says bride quite like a beautiful bouquet, and this particular one with blue hydrangea and peonies is perfection.
