Disney Unveils Fairy Tale Wedding Dresses Collection and Newly Designed Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World Resort

Disney has launched a fairy tale wedding dress collection with gowns inspired by princess characters from various Disney classics, including The Little Mermaid, Beauty and The Beast and Cinderella. The Cinderella Castle at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando will also receive a "royal makeover" in honor of the film's 70th anniversary, the company confirmed.

The Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Collection, created in collaboration with Allure Bridals, features a total of 16 wedding gown styles in different silhouettes and fabrics. The designs all capture "the style and spirit of Disney Princess characters such as Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Jasmine, Cinderella, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Tiana, and Snow White," according to a statement from Allure Bridals.

The fantasy gowns feature various timeless silhouettes, with "romantic ball gowns, mermaid trains and fit-and-flare hemlines" incorporated throughout the collection. Fabric options will include "soft mikado, ethereal tulle and flowing chiffon, balanced by the dramatic structure of ruffled organza and unique, dimensional lace," the bridal dress company stated.

The full Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Collection will be unveiled at New York Bridal Fashion Week in April this year, after which the collection will be available at selected boutiques across the country. Nine of the dresses will be priced from $1,200 to $2,500.

Seven of the aforementioned 16 styles will form part of the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Platinum Collection, priced from $3,500 to $10,000. Available exclusively at Kleinfeld Bridal stores in New York and Toronto, the platinum collection features "extensive crystal beading, pearls and hand-embroidered appliques and delicate sparkle tulle" and includes the Tiana Platinum gown, which is "covered in bayou-inspired shimmering vines and blossoms," the statement reads.

All gowns will be available in sizes 0 to 30 for both collections.

"So many brides grow up admiring their favorite Disney Princess characters and are inspired by their journeys, gowns and stories of the classic films," Kelly Crum, CEO of Allure Bridals, said in the statement.

"Cinderella first transformed into a princess 70 years ago this week when the animated classic was released—and ever since, her courage and kindness have been inspiring guests and cast members alike. We are excited to share that her story has inspired a bold, shimmering and royal makeover of her namesake castle at the heart of Walt Disney World Resort," Kirk said.

Last December, Disney unveiled the new Riviera Resort at the Walt Disney World Resort, whose design was inspired by "the grandeur and enchantment of the European Riviera," the company said.
