Every girl dreams of meeting her prince, falling in love, and living happily ever after. Like most Disney princesses, that also means an extravagant wedding. It’s no surprise that Disney-inspired weddings have become more and more popular over the last few years.
There are Disney wedding cakes, Disney invitations, and even Disney centerpieces. A romantic Disney wedding soundtrack is essential, too. The showcase for any wedding, though, is the bride’s wedding dress.
For the last several years, designer Alfred Angelo has offered a range of dresses inspired by Disney princesses. The dresses allow the bride to take on the guise of Ariel, Cinderella, or any other favorite princess. Next year, the dress manufacturer is introducing several exciting new dresses to the line. Thirteen new dresses will debut in 2017. The new dresses debuted last week at New York Bridal Fashion Week.
There are far too many exciting looks to showcase here. Narrowing it down was a hard decision. Here’s a look at a few of our favorites, though.
Ariel – The Little Mermaid
Ariel – Style 264 (available Spring 2017)
Free spirited lines and flowing tulle ruffles, this gown is a true reflection of Ariel, princess of the sea. The fitted embroidered lace overlay bodice has been embellished from the sweetheart neckline through the low dropped waistline with pearls, caviar beads and crystal beading. The mermaid silhouette features a sheer cut-out at the back neckline which adds a touch of light-hearted allure. Pearl buttons and a voluminous ruffled skirt with horsehair trim and a chapel length train finishes the gown.

Belle – Style 274 & 274A (available Spring, 2017)
Timeless grace abounds in this diaphanous tulle overlay wedding dress bringing together a structured natural waist bodice and a romantic tulle skirt creating a look that is as strong and independent as Belle herself.
