the words fairytale wedding is, you have guessed it, Cinderella.

sigh at the mere thought of having a fairytale wedding that will

gruesome. However, no matter how much we try to deny it, women will,
when the truth be told, resort to some extreme measures for the
perfect wedding. And, deep down in our hearts of hearts we desire
the puffball dress, our own version of a glass slipper, Prince Charming
