If you're looking for a fairy tale ending, you'll need a proposal from your very own Prince Charming and a dress fit for a princess. But how would you feel dressing like a Disney princess? Wedding outfitter Alfred Angelo has teamed up Disney on a collection of gowns inspired by those worn by princesses Ariel, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Snow White and Tiana.
No, we're not joking. You can actually dress like the Little Mermaid on your wedding day. Granted there is no aqua mermaid tail, but sea-inspired dress does have a mermaid-style cut, pearl beading, and sequin sparkles. Each of the other gowns takes on a similar liberal interpretation on the style of the princesses. The Sleeping Beauty gown is romantic with a willowy skirt. Belle's dress has a draped waistline and is inspired by the ballroom dance scene from the movie. The Cinderella-inspired dress is heavy on sparkle as a reference to her glass slipper. Snow White's dress is traditional and inspired by nature with a floral bodice. For those looking for a more modern approach, Jasmine's dress is draped satin with a bejeweled neckline, and the Tiana gown features an asymmetrical top and ruched skirt. Thankfully none of these interpretations were so literally that wedding guests would immediately identify the designs as inspired by a Disney character.

Interesting. Most of them look wedding-worthy, although one looks more like an evening gown.
The gowns are just gorgeous....the floral motif, complete with flower petals on the one gown is just stunning. The designer really achieved an excellent rendition of “fairy tale” without being kitschy.
A few of them I think capture the characters. Ariel, Jasmine, and Cinderella especially.
My first movie ever was Sleeping Beauty and I do have a passion for the stylized art that was in that movie. Every year I show my art students a Disney Video celled Four artists paint a tree (It’s a feature in the 2003 release of SB but was originally a Disney special back in the 50’s. Some of the quality video we watched back in the 50’s that would be considered “too boring “ today.)
I just don’t see Sleeping Beauty in that dress, or the Snow White one.
Excuse me, that’s CALLED Four artists paint a tree. It’s late.
