Like many Disney fans, we’ve all dreamed of having our own happily ever after, with the prince of our dreams, and of course that perfect fairytale wedding dress. Allure Bridal have collaborated with Disney to create their Once Upon a Disney Wedding Dress collection. We’ve got all you need to know about the 16 piece collection and how they’ve taken inspiration from the Disney Princesses. The gowns are available in sizes 0-30 and start as low as from £1500.
First launched in Canada and the US in June last year, they’re now being made available to the UK. This new collection features beautiful dresses inspired by the Disney Princesses; Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Snow White, and Tiana provide the inspiration for each dress.
The main question is, who’s your favourite Disney Princess, and how can you decide which Disney inspired Wedding Dress is best for you?
Ariel Wedding Dress
Obviously, one of our favourite Disney Princess is Ariel, and in the range she has two designs.
Firstly the D260 is a mermaid style gown, replicating the rolling waves of the ocean, the dress features cascading layers of soft tulle and organza . To create a feminine and flattering neckline the dress is strapless and incorporates ruching sweetheart neckline. The dress adds a dramatic effect with a long strand of pearls and beautiful covered buttons down the back.
Secondly, the DP250 is the other Ariel inspired design.
Another mermaid style gown featuring the same cascading layers of soft tulle and organza and sweetheart neckline. The subtle differences of this dress are the delicate straps made from multiple strands of pearlized beads, which then drape down the back with a chandelier effect. Finally the covered buttons accentuate the stunning silhouette.
Aurora Wedding Dress
The first Aurora inspired Dress (Style: D261) features a delicate fitted waistline and Alencon lace details. The strapless dress incorporates a layered sparkling beaded lace soft-sweetheart bodice. In addition to this, the dress features a ballgown skirt combining tulle and Sparkling tulle. The detachable diaphanous lace bridal cape brings the Aurora touch to the dress.
The second Aurora inspired gown (DP251) in the collection showcases a voluminous and ethereal, ballgown skirt. The dramatic, and memorable, skirt is created from over 100 yards of tulle and sparkling tulle. The slightly scooped, strapless neckline continues to a beautiful embellished bodice accented with sparkling crystals that purposefully extend into the skirt. Pretty and dainty florals on Alencon lace edge the hemline. A gorgeous confection.
Belle Wedding Dress
Be the Belle of the ball with this timeless and romantic Belle inspired dress (D262). Alecon lace appliques are featured throughout the gown. This classic off-shoulder neckline flows into a dramatic ballgown skirt and a luxurious buttery satin train.
The second Belle inspired gown (DP252) also features a dramatic ball gown skirt created from tulle and sparkle tulle. The soft pickups on the skirt create the signature delicate fall from Belle’s gown. The bodice features blooms of embroidered Venise lace and sparkling seed beads. The modern off-the-shoulder neckline adds a beautiful modern touch to a classic silhouette.
Cinderlla Wedding Dress
The first of two Cinderella inspired wedding dresses is the D263. Adorned with hundreds of crystals the dramatic V-shaped bodice also incorporates Alencon lace appliques. The capped sleeves and sparkling tulle adds a feminine glamour touch.
Secondly, the DP253 is as magical and memorable as Cinderella’s transformation. A portrait neckline and 3/4 length sleeves create this stunning ball gown, finished with layers of glitter tulle under a soft tulle skirt and a graceful back covered in beautiful buttons. Adding the Cinderella sparkle is the 4,600 crystals and 44,000 sequins and beads.
Jasmine Wedding Dress
The first Jasmine inspired gown (D264) in this Disney collect is pure royal elegance. A flattering fit and flare silhouette is created by the luxurious stretch crepe. The off-the-shoulder bodice is covered in opulent Venise lace and crystals. The memorable drama is created by the unique and artistic design of the train.
The second tribute to Jasmine is the DP254. The rich and elegant dress where the luxurious Mikado hugs and flatters your body creating a stunning silhouette. Meticulous embroidery and sparkling beading contour the bodice as covered buttons lengthen down the back of the gown. A beautiful detachable train provides further drama to this gorgeous gown.
Pocahontas Wedding Dress
The D265 is the Pocahontas inspired gown. A sleek, slim design creates this beautiful and empowering silhouette. In addition to this, a stunning motif is visible in the all-over cotton lace applique. This flattering gown features a sweetheart neckline and detailed spaghetti straps.
