If you’ve read the latest issue of Scottish Wedding (and you can get your free digital edition here, btw), you’ll know that we were getting excited about bridal designer Allure Bridals’ upcoming collab with Disney on a collection of wedding dresses.
At the time of going to press we’d only seen sketches of the dresses, but the images are finally here – and the collection is even better than we imagined.
Each wedding dress is based on an iconic female Disney character, but it’s not all about the Cinderella-esque ballgowns (though they’re obviously present and correct).
You could go sleek and streamlined in the Pocahontas dress or live out your Ariel dreams in – what else – a mermaid-style gown.
There are 18 dresses in total with some characters inspiring a couple of designs.
Here are some of our favourites.
THE ALLURE BRIDALS DISNEY FAIRY TALES WEDDING DRESS COLLECTION
The Ariel (Style DP250) dress is a fit-and-flare gown with a sleek sweetheart bodice that leads to a cascading ruffled skirt, aka your fishtail.
Our favourite detail? The pearlised beaded straps that cascade down the back.
Did you know that Sleeping Beauty’s actual name is Princess Aurora? Lodge that fact in your brain if you have more quizzes ahead of you this year.
The Aurora (Style D261) is a romantic gown with a sweetheart bodice which is totally elevated by a detachable cape. Swish, swish.
When we were little, we dreamed of wearing Belle’s off-shoulder yellow ballgown. And now that dream could become a reality with the Belle (Style DP252) dress.
Echoing the silhouette of Beauty and the Beast’s biggest fashion moment, this gown will ensure you shine all day thanks to the sparkly tulle fabric and glimmering seed bead embellishments.
Cinderella is the quintessential Disney princess, and this dress (Style DP253) has been designed to mimic the sparkle of her glass slipper.
More than 4,600 crystals and 44,000 sequins and beads adorn the glitter tulle skirt to make you the ultimate fairytale bride.
Rich and elegant just like its namesake, Jasmine (Style DP254) is made from luxurious Mikado silk and has a gently flared skirt.
There’s a detachable train too, so you can make a very royal entrance down the aisle.
Pocahontas isn’t one for frills and flounce and that’s reflected in her dress, Style D265.
Super sleek with an all-over cotton lace applique, spaghetti straps and a plunge neckline, we love the chic simplicity of its design.
Rapunzel (Style D266) is best known for her long, flowing locks, interpreted in this dress design via a cascading floor-length tulle ribbon.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?
Well, you, if you wear the Snow White (Style DP255) dress. The bodice features lace over a scooped neckline, and the ballgown skirt comprises layers of tulle and organza covered in floral lace appliques.
New Orleans in the 1920s is the setting for The Princess and the Frog, so Tiana (Style D268) pays homage to the Jazz Era with its streamlined silhouette and tiered ruffles.
It’s modern but with a distinct vintage vibe.
Allure Bridals is stocked in Scotland at Reeta Fashions, Glasgow and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo Bridal Boutique, East Kilbride.
The Disney Fairy Tales collection is not currently available in Scotland, but speak to a stockist and they may be able to show you a mainline collection dress in a similar style.
