Earlier this year, Disney announced it was launching its very own line of wedding dresses. Inspired by gowns worn by your favourite Disney princesses, the collection offers brides everywhere the chance to live their childhood wedding fantasy and bring these much-loved characters to life.
As @Cosmopolitan says, “Folks can walk down the aisle looking just like Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White, Belle and more.” Here’s our guide to selecting the perfect Disney-inspired gown for your big day.
As you’d expect, the gown inspired by Ariel has a distinctive mermaid silhouette. The sleeveless dress hugs the chest, waist and hips before flaring out into a looser skirt at knee level. This type of dress is perfect for those who want something that shows off their figure but isn’t tight from top to bottom.
A flattering choice for many body shapes, it’s a must for anyone who just can’t get enough of The Little Mermaid.
Inspired by the lead character in Beauty and the Beast, this beautiful gown could be considered the archetypal princess cut. The voluminous skirt flows out from the waist, creating a large train and impressive silhouette. The dress hugs the chest and has off-the-shoulder sleeves and a lace-up bodice.
This type of dress is ideal for anyone who wants to make an entrance on their wedding day and leave guests in no doubt as to whose special moment this is.
The main character from Disney’s 2009 movie The Princess and the Frog, Tiana was the first African American princess to appear in a Disney film. The gown inspired by the character features thin shoulder straps, a tight-fitting, heart-shaped bodice, and a flowing, princess-style skirt.
The dress is encrusted with crystals and features a bayou-inspired design of vines and blossoms. The most embellished of the gown designs released so far – it’s the ideal dress for any bride who wants a bit of bling on their big day.
Getting the princess look
If you can’t wait for the Disney wedding dress collection to officially hit the shops, or if you don’t have the budget for a princess-inspired gown, you can still achieve this eye-catching look.
When searching for a dress, decide which of these classic silhouettes will best suit your body shape. You can then ask your favourite bridal boutique or wedding dress designer to find the perfect gown for your big day.
Moreover, crystals and lace detailing can make a dress feel extra special, so look out for these features when searching for your gown.
Finish your princess-inspired look by wearing your hair up and accessorising it with a tiara or diamante headpiece. Wearing a veil for your walk up the aisle can also help to enhance your Disney aesthetic.
