Bridal style: Ballerina beauty and style inspiration

Ballerina dancing

There is something incredibly romantic and fun about the ballerina look and what better day to recreate this look than on your wedding day? From ballerina buns, to full wedding dress skirts – there are many ways to bring the ballerina sparkle into your wedding day look.

The Dress

When it comes to the dress, a full tulle skirt is perfect for the ballerina look. Whether long and flowering, for a beautiful, classic feel, or tea-length for something fun and playful – the key to achieving the look reminiscent of the ballerina is a tulle skirt with layers of netting.

The top half of your dress would look beautiful with a chic wrap around style, mimicking the leotards worn by professional dancers.  An open v-neck, crafted from soft lace, or chiffon would also look beautiful. In contrast, to give your gown a modern twist, why not go for a flattering sweetheart neckline?

Embrace floaty, lightweight fabrics and layer them over the main body of your gown. The shoulders of the gown can be styled with ribbons and a ribbon around the your waist will bring the look together beautifully.

Bring in Embellishments

Ballerinas are known for their sparkle and a great way to bring in the charm of the ballerina look is to go to town with classy embellishments. Sew small crystals into your wedding veil for a beautiful and subtle, ballerina inspired look, or for a bridal gown designed with pretty embellishments.

Wedding dress and rings


The ballerina style holds the sculpted bun as one of its cornerstones. A sculpted bun, scraped high on the head and tied securely, so it doesn’t budge for your wedding photos, will perfectly emulate the style. Be sure to smooth the hair with a styling product to get rid of any flyways. In contrast, you could bring a more relaxed feel to your look by wearing your hair in loose waves or curls.

Make your hairstyle look all the more charming, with a hairband styled with crystal embellishments, a hair scarf fashioned from ribbon, or some crystal hair jewels.


A ballerina’s makeup is always flawless; opt for a matte foundation and fix with powder for a flawless canvas. Nude, or pale pink lipsticks are perfect for the put-together look that a ballerina embodies. Flawless eyeliner application and fluttery lashes, achieved with lash extensions, or natural-looking individual lashes, will complete your look beautifully.


My Wedding sums up the ballerina wedding day look perfectly:

“Flowy tulle skirts are a ballerina staple, but we can’t forget about the soft romantic details that make up the top of a wedding dress. From gorgeous illusion necklines to deep lace v’s, these amorous details complete with ribbons and bows are only made better when paired with a classic ballerina bun.”

Tulle skirts, ribbons and a classic ballerina bun will perfectly replicate the ballerina aesthetic on your wedding day.
