SPONSORED: 6 Events You'll Have to Dress Up For In Your Lifetime

Many little girls grow up watching Disney movies and dreaming of one day becoming a princess. This dream stays with you as you grow older and transforms the dream of getting dressed up to feel like a princess. Luckily there are a few events throughout life that allow us to make this dream come true.

Coming of Age Ceremonies

Different cultures have different celebrations for their daughters once they hit a certain age such as Bat Mitzvahs, Quinceaneras, Debutante Balls, and Sweet Sixteen Parties just to name a few. Each of these celebrations not only celebrate a girl becoming a woman, but also presents her with her first opportunity  to feel like a princess for a day.
Not only is it the chance to be princess for a day, but it also happens to be your birthday making your day even more special!

High School Prom

High School Prom: An event you look forward to as soon as you learn what one is and an event you'll look back on for the rest of your life. Many girls spend months preparing for this last big event of high school (besides graduation of course), and spend a countless number of hours searching for the perfect dress. The day of prom is then spent being pampered as only a royal heiress does.

College Formals

Whether you're a part of a Sorority, being recognized in an academic dinner, or going as someone's date, you will probably attend at least one formal while you're in college. 
The first rule for finding a dress for a college formal is that it is NOT prom. A general rule to avoid over-doing it at a college formal is to think of it as your high school homecoming (without the ridiculous dress code restrictions of course).

Your Wedding 

Your wedding is the one day of your life where it really is all about Y-O-U! It's time to do what you want! Go all out in a princess style ball gown or be an individual in a short, vintage style dress.
The possibilities are endless and it can be hard to choose but in the end you only have one job: to find the dress that makes you feel beautiful and have your greatest princess moment.

Holiday Parties

During the winter holiday season you may get invited to many parties by friends, family, or your place of employment. While many will be casual or semi-formal, you may have a few chances to get fully dressed up in formal attire. 
Rule Number 1 for casual and smaller, more intimate get togethers: You can never go wrong with an LBD! Also, try not to upstage your host. It's okay to be fabulous, but let your host have a night to be fabulous too!
For formal events don't be afraid to be a little glamorous. It is the most magical time of year after all!

Not everyone will have the opportunity to go to a ball or gala in their lifetime. These types of events are usually held by places of work, museums and galleries, or apart of charity. This is your chance for a red carpet moment. Make sure your attire is appropriate for the organization hosting it. For example a low-cut gown may be appropriate at one event but may not be at a ball hosted by a more conservative organization.
