Top 5- Princess Wedding Dresses
If a princess wedding dress has been your dream since you were a little girl planning your wedding day, then we are the bridal shop for you! Our signature style is sparkle but being the only stockist of the Disney Fairy Tale Wedding collection in the Kent, Surrey and Sussex area…. we now cater for brides with big ball gowns, capes and Disney inspired dresses too!
Here is our top 5 picks of princess wedding dresses that offer something for everyone!
Markle by Hayley Paige
Our original princess dress! Markle was inspired by the royal wedding between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. This is what the designer hoped Meghan would wear….slightly different to what we saw we would have rathered this option, wouldn’t you?
In the custom labyrinth fabric designed by Hayley Paige, this gown sparkles and has thousands upon thousands of micro beads across its cashmere-coloured bodice and skirt! We love how this bodice frames the bust, and the band around the waist really takes you in no matter your body shape!
Aurora by Disney Fairy Tale Weddings
Just because every princess NEEDS a cape!
The Aurora inspired gown is all about whimsy and sparkle! Beaded Alencon lace on the bodice and glitter tulle in the skirt will bring the Disney vibes to your princess wedding dress style! And the skirt being smaller than some in this blog, it would be a preferred option for some brides! This dress can be worn and ordered with or without the matching cape. However if you are specifically looking for a Disney princess style, we think it is a must!
Note- this cape actually matches lots of the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings dresses and can be ordered separately if you wish!
Lisé by Abella
For a regal, princess look maybe a satin option would capture your heart.
This classic and timeless gown will take your mind back to royal weddings. The structure of the Mikado satin will hold its own shape and not require the plumping and fluffing of the tulle skirts, which may lead to a stress free day and picture perfect photographs. And with Lisé’s off shoulder, beaded straps add the (we think necessary) sparkle every dress needs! Teamed with a tiara, you would be ready for your Prince at the end of the aisle!
Monet by Hayley Paige
Are you a fan of lace AND sparkle? Then Monet is one to try on! Layered, delicate laces and one layer of glitter infused tulle combine to make a beautiful ballgown skirt on this gown! And with a boned, corset bodice and off shoulder straps, this princess wedding dress ticks all the boxes for 2022 wedding trends!
Want the skirt bigger? Add a hoop to fluff out the layers!
Cinderella by Disney Fairy Tale Weddings
For a typical Disney bride, when you think of a princess wedding dress your mind may think BLUE!
This Cinderella inspired gown from the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings 2021 collection resonates with the shade of blue we all remember from the film but is also available in ivory too. But as the blue is only featured in one layer of tulle, we really can’t stress how subtle but beautiful the colour is!
With it’s pleated bodice, off shoulder straps and full on ball gown skirt, it’s not only reminiscent of Disney princess dresses, but also those from the red carpets, celebrity/ royal weddings!
And with a higher back than most wedding dresses around in current collections, we feel this is a great option for a bride who is ordering in a plus size or a little conscious of showing too much skin.
Our top tips for finding your princess wedding dress!
1: If you are looking for a princess wedding dress, the skirt CAN’T be too big! But if you would like a slightly smaller skirt, layers of the petticoat can be taken out at the fittings stage so don’t fret! Or if you need the skirt to be bigger, add a hoop underneath….it will keep your legs free from the petticoats.
2: How many of the Disney princesses wore ivory? Don’t be afraid to explore colour options if Disney princesses are your inspiration behind your princess wedding dress.
3: Think you can’t wear a princess dress in a hotter climate? Think again! If you are jetting off for your wedding day, wear a hoop with a large circumference under the skirt. This will hold the fabric away from your legs and create a breeze. It would actually be cooler to wear this than a heavy, fitted dress that clamps your thighs together!
