The Real OC

Weddings Fit For a Princess

There is a Disney heroine for every girl to relate to. At least on some level, right? While I’ve never run through a meadow, arms outstretched, singing to the great beyond about my lifelong dreams, as a young girl I strongly identified with Belle from Beauty And The Beast. She has dark doe eyes and brown hair, and she reads a lot. That’s all I needed in a kindred spirit.

Disney Fairy Tale WeddingsIf you feel a similar solidarity with the hard-working-yet-glamorous Cinderella, or the kind-hearted, nature-loving Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, there’s a new way to feel like a princess for a day. Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings has a brand new Couture Wedding package, inspired by the party-planning genius David Tutera. Go ahead, princess, sing your heart out!

For Engaged Grrrrls

Most people wouldn’t guess by looking at me now, but back in my high school days, I was a wannabe punk rocker. My daily wardrobe consisted of dyed-black hair, fishnets, plaid miniskirts, and combat boots. (Yes, even during the cold and rainy months.) I also dreamed of marrying Joe Strummer (may he rest in peace). If you sound anything like my alter-ego, then Rock Star Bride might be your cup of tea.

This online boutique features rock star-worthy loungewear and hoodies to tell the world that not only are you engaged, but you’ve still got your edge. If you’re indecisive like me, there are always gift cards adorned with tattoo-inspired graphics. That’s right, they have rock and roll in every detail. From hats to boy-shorts, you’re covered.
