Should you ever find yourself in desperate need of a princess but are on a budget (princess fees have gone up!) I highly recommend creating a princess of your very own!
First you'll need a dress. I have had great luck on Ebay and Etsy but try out thrift stores because old prom dresses or bridesmaids gowns are your best friend! Also if you need a particular princess for your event make sure to look for a gown of that color- light blue, yellow, pink, lavender are all classic princess and thankfully wedding colors. Next embellish your little heart out! Add lace trim to everything and hot glue (or sew if you must) ribbon flowers all over- this is also a great way to cover stains. Last you'll need a willing young lady and a few jewels for her to wear.
Have your gorgeous princess read a story, do some simple face painting, apply temporary tattoos, lead a game of pin the horn on the unicorn and your child will have memories to last a lifetime!
