Belle‘s wedding dress, with a draped waistline is inspired by the iconic ballroom dance scene from the film and focuses on making a grand entrance. The regal, one-shoulder taffeta gown for our newest princess, Tiana, reflects her independent spirit with an asymmetric bodice and ruched skirt.
William’s and Kate’s Royal Wedding has being called “A Modern Fairy Tale”. But, most brides I know are wary of fairy tales and princesses, at least traditional ones. Ever since Diana, the dream of wearing a tiara has been kind of tarnished.
But Kate Middleton might make being a princess cool again. Unlike Diana, who was plucked from her already privileged life, Miss Middleton, a commoner (who looks uncommonly good in a bikini), has not been passive. She has worked for her fairy tale, which makes it more of a fairy tale.
In case the Royal Wedding event encouraged you to be a princess for a day, I have the perfect bridal gowns for a Modern Fairy Tale Princess, Disney Fairy Tale Weddings by Alfred Angelo. They have dresses for every kind of bride and every single gown has been inspired by each one of the legendary Disney Princesses.
Cinderella‘s gown radiates with sparkle as its inspiration is the fairy tale's enchanted glass slipper.
Aurora/Sleeping Beauty‘s gown is romantic with a dreamy, willowy skirt for this slumbering princess.
Snow White‘s dress (my favorite) is inspired by nature, beauty and grace like the Disney Princess character herself.
The treasures of the sea inspired Ariel‘s gown. The mermaid silhouette features re-embroidered lace, pearl beading, and sequin sparkles.
Jasmine‘s wedding dress conveys freedom and individuality and as a result her shimmering soft satin gown is exotic with a bejeweled neckline and low cut back.
Sneak peek footage of the gowns can be seen in this behind the scenes video.
