Because there is a place in Korea where female adults can COME TOGETHER and revisit our childhoods by playing dress-up for the day! This past Saturday I visited the Princess Diary Cafe, a “wedding dress cafe” where women come to revel in our femininity, sip on milkshakes, smoothies, teas, or coffee and take thousands of photographs in imaginary bridal happiness. Along with that goes the accessories all petite sizes of course like EVERYTHING in Korea.
Along side me, a cluster of colleagues joined in to fill their fix of feeling fancy. This was a blast even though I wasn't expecting the Korean workers to take full responsibility for slipping us into this wedding dress wonderland in the dressing room, quite an experience :).
We snapped portraits in the picturesque cafe for about two hours getting the right angle on every frame. The fancier the dress the more expensive, you pick out a dress and pay accordingly (10,000 Won-40,000 Won) and use it for the full time of smiles, "love is in the air" poses, and beauteous admiration.
