I’ve been a lurker for a long time and finally had the guts to ask. =)
FI isn’t really into the wedding planning, but gives his two sense whenever needed. (He also always nods to whatever I like) Anyhow, earlier today, I asked him whether our what princess theme we should go with, Cinderella, Jasmine, Belle? I was hoping he’d give me the easy way out, but instead, he said. . . . "I want you to be your own princess."
I’m darned out of ideas – Where to start? I want something a la frou frou . . . different from the disney batch. . . Still am stumped.

Hi Can you elaborate on what you are looking for? Its hard to answer this question.
Are you looking for ideas for a unique "fairy tale" wedding?

I’m with your FI; don’t arbitrarily pick a Disney princess to base your wedding on. You can easily have a princess-type theme without picking a specific fairy tale. You can have a crown motif on your cake, you can wear a giant ballgown, you can have things look "royal" or "frou frou" without throwing in glass slippers, spinning wheels, or frogs everywhere. 😉

Watch the movie the Princess Diaries for inspiration 🙂

Thanks ladies! I totally agree to chug the frogs and mice thing. "Frou Frou" is def what I’m going for. So that would mean crowns, jewels and maybe feathers?
To elaborate a bit more, We’re getting married at one of the Disney Parks – I’m not sure which one just yet. . . I def don’t want mickey heads galore, but I just want to be a princess.
So far, I am planning on a ballgown dress, a ‘heavenly’ lit cake w/ a castle topper – but that’s pretty much it.
I’m envyous of you ladies who can come up with ideas & ideaboards so quickly.

Maybe you can ask the gal over at Snippet and Ink to help with inspiration. She might like the challenge.

Why don’t you try and lean towards Giselle? The new princess from Disney’s Enchanted?
They are selling TONS of "big girl" accessories and more at the Disney shops, and I just picked up my own "Enchanted" necklace yesterday after I saw the movie at a Disney theatre.
The look of Giselle’s wedding is Frou Frou and should fit your bill!

Feathers, rich fabrics like silk and velvet, gold, rhinestone or crystal accents, horse-and-carriage, long silk gloves, cozy cushions on four poster beds, china teacups, fleur-di-lis, tiaras, pearls, sashes, candlelight, ringlets…that’s what I think of when I think "princess" in the classic sense. Sounds like fun!!
There is also apparently a "princess flower" (in royal purple, of course!); it’s at the bottom of this page:

Thank you soooooo much. It might be my lack of sleep that keeps the mouse from spinning, but after ALL these replies, i think the mice just got a dose of my favorite energy drink!
MissMandy, I haven’t seen Enchanted yet – but have always been wanting too (seriously need to take a day / night off from work) – Thanks for leading me into that direction!
amysue, Thanks so much for those small details. Those would go GREAT! I didn’t know there was a ‘princess flower’
Again, Thank you so much!!
