As the Disney princess craze swept the nation's little girls, adults got caught up in the buzz wanting their fairy tale wedding dress just like Ariel, Belle, or Snow White. And, wedding dress designer Alfred Angelo delivered on it, with the Disney Princess Wedding Dresses line in 2007 and the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings line in 2010.
As of 2017, when the designer suddenly filed for bankruptcy, the designer went out of businesses, and the dresses were no more. Today the dresses can only be found sporadically in second-hand stores and auction sites.
For brides who grew up with Disney, love the movies and the parks, the cruises and the shops, wearing a Disney princess wedding gown enabled them to feel as if they were the main character in their very own magical fantasy.
The 2010 collection of dresses from the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings line by Alfred Angelo included:
- Sleeping Beauty
- Snow White
Ariel Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Dress by Alfred Angelo
The first of Disney wedding dresses was inspired by Princess Ariel. Re-embroidered lace, pearl beading, and sequin sparkles on this form-fitting gown create an unmistakable mermaid silhouette. In diamond white with silver accents, Ariel's wedding dress has a skirt bordered in lace and a chapel-length train.
Princess Belle’s wedding dress, inspired by the romantic ballroom dance scene from the film, allowed a bride to make a grand entrance. Made of ivory satin, Belle's wedding dress featured a crystal beaded corset embroidered with metallic threads. The draped net skirt ended in a semi-cathedral train.
Princess Cinderella’s wedding dress in diamond white and silver radiated with sparkle, as its inspiration was the fairy tale’s enchanted glass slipper. This classic taffeta ballgown with a semi-cathedral train was covered with tulle and glitter. Beneath the sweetheart neckline was a draped bodice.
Jasmine Fairytale Wedding Dress
Princess Jasmine’s shimmering, flowing satin wedding dress in ivory was distinguished with a bejeweled halter neckline and back strap. It featured a chapel train.
Sleeping Beauty Wedding Dress
Yards of fabric enveloped this dozing diva, enshrouded in a diamond-white taffeta wedding dress. Her one-shoulder bodice was covered with re-embroidered lace and fabric flowers. But the true drama was the skirt, a gossamer ruffled ballgown with a semi-cathedral train.
Snow White Wedding Dress
Princess Snow White's ivory-and-silver wedding dress was inspired by nature and grace like the Disney princess character herself. The lace sweetheart bodice reflected her innocence and beauty. The bodice featured apple blossom flowers with glittering centers that cascade down the tulle ballgown skirt over satin that ended in a chapel train.
Tiana Disney Princess Wedding Dress
The regal, one-shoulder taffeta gown for Tiana featured an asymmetrically draped bodice and ruched skirt.
Beaded flower and petal motifs added feminine touches to this diamond-white-and-silver confection of a wedding dress.
Disney Fairy Tale Weddings, including wedding cruises, have become one of the most fun and affordable destination wedding options. Disney Cruises appeal to couples both with and without children. Disney understands that as much as you may love children, there are times, especially on your honeymoon, when you simply do not want to see or hear them.
