Nothing says happily ever after like a fairy tale, and no one does fairy tales quite like Disney, so it’s no surprise that, from gowns to venues, decor to cakes, Disney has fairy tale weddings down to a science. Brides looking to channel their inner princess need look no further than the newly released 2021 Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Collection, featuring elegant wedding gowns inspired by Disney princesses, but chic and subtle enough for modern brides.
The collection, a collaboration between Disney and Allure Bridals, features 21 new wedding dresses, each a nod to one of Disney’s most iconic princesses through the years, from Snow White and Cinderella to Ariel, Belle, Jasmine and Tiana.
Available in sizes 0-30 and starting at $1,200, the gowns are sold in select bridal boutiques across the country. Here’s a look at some of the wedding dresses from the 2021 Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Collection, revealed during a virtual fashion show at Walt Disney World on Feb. 12.
Inspired by Aladdin‘s adventurous Princess Jasmine, this gown features a beaded bodice that’s meant to evoke the architecture of the palace Jasmine calls home.
A gradual illusion back adds drama and the chiffon skirt with chapel train even includes hidden pockets.
Disney’s first princess provides the inspiration for this stunner from the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Platinum Collection, which is available exclusively at Kleinfeld (of “Say Yes to the Dress” fame) in New York and Toronto.
A sweetheart neckline, organza bow, and cathedral train fit for the fairest of them all add romance. Three-dimensional “apple blossoms” introduce a playful nod to that fateful bite.
Detailed appliques and sequins on the Tiana gown evoke the sparkling fireflies from Disney’s The Princess and the Frog.
With heavy beadwork and a silhouette reminiscent of the Jazz Age, this brings vintage style to a modern gown.
One of three Belle-inspired gowns released in honor of the dual 30th anniversary of both Disney’s animated Beauty and the Beast and Disney Fairy Tale Weddings, this gown channels Belle’s iconic yellow ballgown.
Rose-patterned brocade conjures the film’s pivotal red rose and a playful tulle overlay adds balance to the drama of the cathedral train.
