You could buy inexpensive childrens ballet shoes at payless and add them in somehow.

How about for table numbers you have vintage ballet prints in vintage frames and superimpose numbers over the print with vellum?

Have your BM’s wear tea length dresses and lace up ballet shoes. I would replace the ribbon with longer ones and really exxagerate the lace up for more impactTongue out.

I would use pink/blush candles. I love silver vases for this theme or cut crystal. I personally love when people use all different vases made of the same material. These various sizes and shapes add a lot of visual interest so start hitting thrift stores and save yourself money. 

 

You could also make these flowers http://www.projectwedding.com/wedding-ideas/diy-gorgeous-chiffon-and-tulle-flowers

Gorgeous Chiffon and Tulle Flowers

Just some off the top of my head ideas. Hope it helps Smile

You could make your procession and recession music from your favorite ballets, Sleeping Beauty or some such. I agree with the shoes and tea length dresses for the girls – make them full, maybe skirts, and wrap-around tops, like ballerinas wear in warm up?

It’s a lovely lovely idea by the way!

I would say use ballet pink and incorporate ribbons into your decor to reference the shoes.

I’ve always loved ballet style.  I think “inspired” instead of super literal is the way to go to avoid crossing over into little girl/costume land.

Two of my favorite inspirations for my own wedding (the first I used, and the second I didn’t, but may buy yet!)

1.  Super high, sleek, dramatic bun.  The Rosa Clara models all had these going on.

 

2.  These kickass pumps from bcbg:
