Disney to sell wedding dresses for brides looking for their happily ever after
If you're a bride-to-be who has never grown up and are still looking forward to your happily ever after with your own Prince Charming, then this news may bring you more joy than actually getting engaged.
Premier wedding dress designers Allure Bridals has teamed up with Disney to give women the opportunity to really feel like a princess on their big day.
The Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Collection will feature a 16-dress line that will include silhouettes inspired by all your favorite Disney princesses - from Ariel to Jasmine.
Being married to a Disney fan myself (engaged at Disney/honeymooned at Disney), I can only express just how tempted my wife now is to divorce me and then re-marry me, just so she can wear one of these magical gowns.
In an official press release, Allure Bridals said:
"So many brides grow up admiring their favorite Disney Princess characters and are inspired by their journeys, gowns, and stories of the classic films. [...]
"Our design team worked tirelessly on each of these incredible gowns, as each dress features intricate detailing specifically inspired by the timeless characters know and loved by all of us at Allure and Kleinfeld, as well as our brides. We are honored to work with Disney on this collection and see the romance of it come to life."
Writing on their Instagram page, Allure Brides shared the news of their collaboration with Disney with their 310K+ followers, along with their first design - a Little Mermaid Princess Ariel-inspired gown.
"We’re thrilled to announce a magical new collaboration, our new Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Collection, coming this Spring!
"With its mermaid silhouette, our Ariel inspired gown features a gorgeous ruffled skirt that moves as gracefully as the ocean's tide. Ariel perfectly embodies the bride who is willing to cross oceans for love."
The next design shared to their Instagram page is a Beauty and the Beast Belle-inspired dress, accompanied with the caption: "The heart like a rose, blossoms when loved. Our Belle inspired gown is pure romance — an elegant ballgown silhouette with lace detail and the perfect skirt for waltzing the night away. Stay tuned for the official launch of our new collection this Spring!"
And finally, a Princess and the Frog Princess Tiana-inspired gown, which was accompanied by the caption:
"Dreaming big is Tiana’s destiny, and our Tiana Platinum Collection ball gown will turn heads with its sequined dimensional lace adorned throughout. The Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Platinum Collection is only available at @kleinfeldbridal stores, coming this Spring!"
Prices for each gown will range from $1,200 all the way up to $10,000 (if only you had your own fairy godmother, eh?).
Only a handful of the designs have been released so far, with the actual dresses set to be unveiled until March during New York Bridal Fashion Week.
