The dream becomes reality: Disney and bridal gown designer Alfred Angelo launch Princess-inspired wedding dress collection


The dream becomes reality: Alfred Angelo and Disney have collaborated on a new range of wedding dresses inspired by Disney Princesses, including this stunning Cinderella gown

It's every little girl's dream to look like a Disney Princess on her wedding day.
And now the dream can become reality, thanks to Disney’s Fairy Tales Weddings by Alfred Angelo - a collection of stunning Disney-inspired gowns.

Renowned wedding dress designer Angelo has come up with a series of gowns inspired by the most popular Disney Princesses - Ariel, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Snow White and Tiana.

Princess for a day: The Belle dress has a similar top and corset-style detailing before extending into a tulle skirt

In addition, in Autumn/Winter 2011, the collection will extend to include one inspired by Cinderella and one by Rapunzel.

The wedding dresses are now available from over 65 bridal stores across the UK and Ireland and range in price from £599 to £1199.

Talking about the range, designer Michael Shettel said: 'Brides-to-be are head over heels in love with our newly-released Disney Fairy Tale Weddings bridal collection.

Beautiful: The Ariel dress is fitted around the top and hips before billowing into a full skirt

Exotic: The Jasmine dress is a slinky number with diamante embellishments

'Combining amazing design and charming storytelling with some Disney magic, we’re confident that we have created a truly enchanting collection.'

And Liam Gallagher, Director of Fashion and Home for The Walt Disney Company UK and Ireland, added: 'All brides want to feel like a princess on their special day and we look forward to bringing a little Disney magic to weddings across the country with this new collection of stylish Disney Princess-inspired wedding gowns with Alfred Angelo.'

The dresses vary drastically in style according to the princess they were inspired by.

The newest: The dress inspired by Princess Tiana from The Princess And The Frog is one of the most beautiful

While Cinderella has a very full ball-gown style dress with a strapless top and sweetheart neckline, Jasmine has a dress slightly more exotic with a slinky feel and diamante embellishments.

Belle's dress from Beauty in the Beast was famously yellow in colour but the Alfred Angelo gown retains the style of the beautiful dress in a white and silver design.

And Ariel's dress boasts a fitted top going down across the waist and hips before spreading intoa fishtail design around the bottom.

Design stages: The sketches for the Cinderella dress and the detailed Rapunzel gown

Princess Tiana is the most recent of the Disney Princesses and made history by being the first black Disney princess of all time.

And Tiana's dress is one of the most exotic of the collection, with an asymmetric neckline, ruched top and layered tulle bottom.
