Girls grow up watching fairy tale movies, reading romantic picture books and falling asleep to whimsical bedtime stories, so it’s no surprise that on our wedding day we want to feel like a princess. The fluffy beautiful elegant dress and the sparkling glass slippers are only the beginning of our fairy tale dream wedding. We’re taught that our prince will ride up on a stunning white horse and take us away to a land of hopes and dreams. Today we look forward to our wedding day with an equal amount of lust and excitement, although the hopes and dreams might be a little different.
