Disney has been spreading its magical pixie dust of happy-ever-afters for nearly a century now and counting. No matter the adversity the main characters have to endure during the run of the story, Disney always makes sure to give them the fairytale endings they deserve.
While most Disney stories conclude with “And they lived happily ever after”, we don’t usually get a glimpse into every princess’s dream wedding, let alone her wedding dress. Oftentimes, we just see them run off into the sunset with their Prince Charming, depriving us of the chance to admire their wedding fashion picks. However, thanks to digital artist, Greco Archibald, Disney fans can now have a clear vision of what these princesses would look like as brides (modern-day brides, that is!).
#1 Snow White
The Fairest of Them All is a beautiful blushing bride in this ivory off-the-shoulder wedding gown. The classic A-line cut and intricate scallop pattern are the perfect complements to Snow White’s effortless glow. Now, let’s talk about that princess tiara and pearl-peppered veil! She truly is the epitome of graceful elegance.
If there’s someone who knows how to light up a room with her mesmerizing presence, it’s Cinderella! Here, we can see her as the gorgeous modern day bride that she is. All glammed up in a striking silver pleated ball gown with a sweetheart neckline and matching jewelry, she is sparkly enough to light up the night. This wedding gown is a dream come true.
A mermaid cut wedding gown is the ideal choice for Sleeping Beauty. This lovely bride simply dazzles in this off white number with floral sheer detail. Everything from her orchid bouquet and stunning tiara all the way to the way her gold locks cascade down her back radiate absolutely phenomenal wedding fashion bliss.
Since this fiery-haired princess hails from the mystic seas of wonder, it’s only fitting that she dons a flowy beach dress for her wedding day. Her flower corolla is the crowning grace to her overall seaside ensemble. The understated look conveys an enchanting dash of magic that only a few can pull off. Throw in some espadrille sandals and an exquisite minimalist set of sapphire earrings and ring, et voila, the mermaid bride is ready to exchange “I Dos” with Prince Eric at a romantic beach wedding.
If Belle wants a ball gown, it’s a ball gown she’ll get! All dressed up in a cream ensemble sprinkled with multi-sized roses and pearls, Belle is an undeniable beauty. This wedding gown is a statement piece for the ages.
The Princess of Agrabah has just arrived to her highly-anticipated wedding day; and she looks pretty as a picture in her mermaid cut dress with sheer long sleeves. Her simple veil truly lets her bejeweled crown, teardrop earrings, and elaborate drop necklace shine in the spotlight. Oh, and let’s not forget those little pearl details that wind throughout her long thick hair. Agrabah is a galaxy, and Jasmine is one of its brightest stars.
If you want unconventional bridal couture at its finest, then you better take a cue from Pocahontas who shows up in an elegant ivory gown with magnificent tribal pattern details. As you can see, this charming princess has opted to wear her iconic blue necklace and even amplified it with feather earrings and daisies in her hair. We wouldn’t be surprised if she’ll be marrying her soulmate on a beautiful hilltop by a dreamy sunset.
She may be a tough warrior who can save an imperial kingdom with her perseverance, wit, and battle strategy, but she is also a beautiful Disney princess whose taste in wedding ensembles transcends time and space. The soft flow of the ivory fabric culminates into an exquisite train. The rose adorned sleeves, neckline and skirt propel the gown to new heights of immense sophistication and glamour. We can tell you this: Li Shang will be crying when Mulan walks down the aisle.
Tiana rocks this flowy layered gown like no other! Evidently inspired by her spectacular green dress in “The Princess and the Frog”, Tiana tones it down a little to look like an elegant angel on her contemporary wedding day.
Who says you can only wear shades of white on your wedding day? Because gold totally works too! Designed with soft chiffon and shimmering gold details, this is the ideal dress for a golden-haired princess.
You couldn’t possibly have expected Merida to throw on a dress for her wedding day, right? Of course, not! Anything that abides by social standards is not in her vocabulary. So, instead of dressing up like a princess, this spunky bride opts for a futuristic wedding jumpsuit. With a matching dramatic bow and train, Merida channels the headstrong girl boss that she truly is. On another note, we’re so happy that found her prince charming or princess charming! Who’s the lucky guy or girl?
If you watched the movie, Enchanted, then you know that princess Giselle is all about happiness, magic, and FASHION! She can turn a rug into an haute couture masterpiece overnight and turn New York into her runway. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if she told us that she hand sewed this rose gold wedding gown and veil the night before her wedding day.
Megara has joined the bridal group chat, and she looks like a Greek goddess! Her majestic gold waist belt is the perfect pair for her laurel wreath hair piece that spirals all the way to the tips of her luscious hair. Hercules couldn’t have a more beautiful (or cunning) bride.
She may be a princess who lives in the kingdom of Fox Animation Studios, but she’s just as loved as the royals of Disney. With her pearl embellished chiffon cape and exquisite updo, she radiates royal bridal brilliance. Plus, it looks like Dimitri’s conman days are over, as he has found his soulmate in Russian princess, Anastasia. We just love happy ever afters!
The dynamic pattern of this ethereal white gown looks amazing against this bride’s honey skin. With the addition of a charming flower crown and loose braid, this is a modern wedding look that truly stands out. Esmeralda and Pocahontas need to tell us where they went dress shopping, because that boho chic is on fleek!
Make way for the princess of Atlantis! Kida’s parchment hued gown with a knee high slit and exquisite lace corset details fit her personality to a tee. Our only question is: Is she getting married in Atlantis or here? And are we invited?
#17 Vanessa (Ursula)
Nice try, Ursula. No matter how many times you disguise yourself as Vanessa, Prince Eric will still love Ariel. Don’t even think of crashing the wedding. Also, we won’t tell you how much we love your dress with a retro feathered hem and gem-embellished bodice. Where did you get it? Asking for a friend…
