Modern-Day Princess Marriage Proposal
By: Sarah Pease
So many girls grow up watching movies with princesses in extravagant ball gowns, sparkly tiaras, horse-drawn carriages and noble princes, but rarely do they ever get to dress up like their favorite fairytale characters. However, the one day a girl can transform into a princess is her wedding day, one of the most magical and memorable days in anyone’s life. The fitted, ruched bodice paired with elegant embellishments and a corset back give this David’s Bridal Collection wedding gown a modern and classic feel. This dress is perfect for the modern-day princess and served as the inspiration for this charming fairytale proposal.
Your future fiancée will be going about her morning when she receives a delivery. As she opens the door, she will be greeted by a butler that you have arranged to deliver an invitation on a silver tray. She will read the beautifully calligraphed invitation that invites her to a ball that evening at a luxurious ballroom that you have reserved beforehand. Shortly after your loved one receives the invitation she will be greeted at her home by a small group of friends and a hair and makeup team, because every princess deserves to have her closest friends with her on such a special day! While the women are getting all dolled up another delivery will arrive. This time it is a single shoe from a pair that you have bought, resting on a decorative pillow along with a personalized note saying, “A beautiful shoe is not as brilliant as a pair of shoes.” Once the women have finished their afternoon of pampering it will be time for them to depart for the grand ball. As your future fiancée leaves her home she will be shocked by the gorgeous ivory and flower-adorned horse-drawn carriage that awaits her. As her carriage ride comes to an end she will be escorted out of the carriage where you will be waiting for her down on one knee with the matching shoe on a pillow. She will approach you and when she reaches for the shoe she will see something sparkling that catches her eye. On the heel of the shoe lies the engagement ring you have chosen for your loved one. You’ll share with her that she is the princess in your fairytale and when the two of you are together you feel more complete. When she says yes you will whisk her away to the ball. Inside the opulent ballroom your family and friends will be waiting to congratulate you and celebrate your engagement.
This proposal will make your loved one feel like the princess she truly is and will leave both of you with magical memories for a lifetime!
