Anyone who keeps a keen eye on the Disney Weddings website fantasizes about getting married in a Disney park, feeling like a Disney princess, and having a happily ever after in keeping with the Disney princess tradition. Disney weddings are certainly popular (albeit expensive, particularly if you opt for luxuries like the nighttime spectacular and the horse and carriage), and the topic is a hit with lots of Disney fans, even those who aren’t getting married! We’ve ogled Cinderella’s wedding dress and contemplated which elements of a Disney wedding we’d be most ecstatic about, but when it comes to wedding dresses, Allure Bridals actually made the dream a reality in their Disney Fairy Tale Wedding Collection–and several months later, the collection has some new additions!
Earlier this year, Allure Bridals released their second Disney bridal collection, and the dresses are just as gorgeous as in the previous collection (and in the unaffiliated collections from the Alfred Angelo line several years ago)! Allure recently promoted their Tiana dress on Instagram, with followers (including Disney Weddings) oohing and aahing over the creation, and they shared pictures of the Cinderella dress just a few days earlier while encouraging brides to embrace “glass slippers”, a “horse-drawn carriage”, and “Prince Charming”. Several new dresses have been added to the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Collection on the Allure Bridals site, including the Belle dress below that was created for Beauty and the Beast’s 30th anniversary.
Additional changes have also been made to the website; while there are still intricate and artistic ‘hand-drawn’ pictures on each princess’s webpage, there is now a more simplified aesthetic that simply encourages viewers to “Dream, Wish, and Believe” on the homepage. There have also been new photoshoots for some of the original 2021 dresses, with different models, and several new dresses have been added for all of the princesses (but the original collection and photos are still there, too!). Aurora, Rapunzel, Jasmine, and Ariel are just four examples of princesses with new gowns and new photos. The original photoshoot took place in Stuttgart, Germany, at Hohenzollern castle and Liechtenstein castle (according to two of the models, Lani Baker Randol and Staci Lyon); we’re not certain of the new photoshoot locations, but they look equally stunning!
Allure Bridals has consistently outdone itself with each release of a Disney princess gown, and it’s heartening to see that they’re intent on expanding their Disney fairy tale offerings and increasing the amount of options that brides can choose from for each Disney princess. We’re also pleased to see that they’re maintaining the original dresses, too! What do you think of the new additions, and which was your favorite from the initial 2020 collection?
