Fairy Tale Wedding Dresses- Disney

Have you ever wondered how Disney's wedding dresses would look in real life ?  Well, now you do not need to wonder but see them yourself. Disney Bridal offers some stunning wedding dresses inspired by favorite Disney character's with a modern touch. I think they are stunning, but will those dresses make your guests recognise what character it belongs too... That is totally different question :)

Before i start, i must remind you that this dresses are NOT copies of the original Disney drawings. This wedding gowns take only inspiration from original ones. So lets start.....


The original wedding dress of Ariel has nothing which would remind of her been a mermaid. photo

The modern version is paying tribute to Ariel's mermaid silhouette, this romantic gown features re-embroidered lace and taffeta fabrics that move as gracefully as the ocean. Touches of sea-inspired details such as pearl beading, subtle metallic accents, crystal beading and sequins add a splash of the unexpected. 

I think that embroidery and especially skirt part of this dress is amazing! If you have hourglass body, this will look stunning on you !

And this is how stunningly beautiful this dress can look on a real bride photo


This is the original dress worn by Belle, photo

Stylish sophistication with a ballgown inspired by a single dance. This gown features a draped satin and crystal beaded corset with subtle hints of gold metallic embroidery. A detachable shrug and draped net pick-up skirt create added grandeur.

What i find interesting is, that the skirt of this wedding dress looks much bigger on the advertising photos than in reality  photo


The original wedding dress worn by Cinderella,  photo

Classic ballgown of tulle and glitter net over taffeta, inspired by Cinderella's glass slipper. The draped criss-cross bodice features a romantic sweetheart neckline accented with sparkling crystal beading and rhinestones.

I personally simply love the looks of this dress,  photo


I think Disney Tiana has a very interestingly cut dress (or better to say drawn). Especially the bodice of this dress would in my mind look stunning as a real life wedding dress. But the real life gown was actually made looking little


This truly stunning one-shoulder taffeta ball gown features dramatic ruched pick-ups, inspired by the grace of the water lily. The asymmetric draped bodice is embellished with beautiful beaded flowers, metallic embroidery and pearl accents.


Sleeping Beauty 

 Original dress worn by Aurora, thought it did change from blue to pink and back several times :D photo


This romantic taffeta gown featuring multiple layers of dreamy gossamer tulle, reminiscent of cascading briar rose petals. The re-embroidered lace and crystal beaded bodice with rose detail adds an elegant touch.

How the dress "really" looks like photo


This is how Jasmine looked on her wedding day, photo

Featuring flowing, soft shimmer satin and a micro-ruched bodice, the bejeweled neckline and halter strap with encrusted pearls, rhinestones and crystal beading add a touch of wanderlust.

Unfortunately i couldn't find a photo of a real bride trying this dress on. I am guessing, that this type of a dress asking a lot from the bride's figure and not many would be confident enough to wear something like this on their wedding day. Though the dress does look beautiful.



Snow White

The original look of the Snow White can be call iconic. Everyone remembers colourful dress Snow White was wearing in Disney's story. photo

This net-over-satin ball gown features a lace bodice of organza apple blossoms with shimmering rhinestone and crystal centers and a skirt with scattered blossom detail. A lovely satin sash and back bow make a graceful finish.

The left photo shows how this dress looks in reality and the right photo has an enchanted skirt. The girl on this photo felt, that this dress would have been amazing with a more bigger skirt. From this photos i must agree with the girl. But i am guessing this would be easily achieved with a bigger crinoline under the original dress. photo
Real wedding with the Snow White dress, photo


 The original dress worn by Rapunzel, photo

The gown features a one shoulder dropped waist and pleated bodice. Delicate three-dimensional satin petals and light catching sequins and crystals dance and float like the lanterns that carried her dreams.

Hope you enjoyed looking at this Disney inspired wedding dresses. This are not the only ones that you can find, but to me this ones had the interesting and unique touches that fit to each princess.

Putting On The Wedding Dress

When you choose your wedding dress.. Did you think about how you will put it on? Did you know who will actually be helping you with it? Were you sure that someone would know how to lace the back of the dress? Or maybe this thought never came to your mind while you were admiring yourself in the mirror? Well, those questions are important. And if you didn't think about this yet, then this is very good time to think and talk with people around you. The thing is , that the more complicated and bigger the dress is, the more help you will need. On my wedding day i needed both my mom and my sister to help with putting the dress on, as otherwise my hair and makeup wouldn't survive the journey :)
