Brides who want to look like Queen Elsa on their wedding day no longer have to dream about it. Starting in January 2015, Disney will make their dreams come true when their new Frozen wedding dress becomes available in bridal shops across the nation.
Disney Weddings posted a drawing of the new Elsa wedding gown on Instagram this week, putting smiles on the faces of brides who want to walk down the aisle in a Frozen-inspired dress while the movie’s most popular song, “Let It Go” plays in the background. Let’s just hope there isn’t a blizzard on the day of the wedding, unless the bride and groom really want to pull out all the stops.
The “Elsa” gown is part of Alfred Angelo Bridal’s Disney Fairy Tale Bridal collection that also features designs based on other Disney princesses, including Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Ariel. The gown will be sold at Alfred Angelo stores in the U.S. starting in January and will be available in both ice blue and ivory.
InStyle recently spoke to Alfred Angelo’s Michele Piccione, who designed the Frozen-inspired wedding gown. Piccone, who is the bridal dress company’s Chief Creative Officer said that Elsa’s character is a “huge inspiration for any designer.”
“She is beautiful and elegant, and her inner beauty shines through when she is ultimately not afraid to embrace who she is with confidence and poise.”
The dress is described as a “softly-flared sheath gown with a sweetheart neckline.” InStyle reports that the heavily beaded dress is made with “layers of satin, tulle, glitter net and organza.” The swirled beading is made to look like the freshly fallen snow that was a big part of Disney’s ever-so-popular movie, Frozen.
The gown has a Watteau train, a style that Wedding Solutions describes as a single panel of fabric that attaches to the upper part of the dress and flows either to the bottom of the wedding gown or, for a more dramatic look, it can be extended out further behind the wedding gown.
Of course, Disney’s new Frozen wedding gown doesn’t cut corners when it comes to being a show-stopper. Piccone tells InStyle that the Elsa gown’s Watteau train drapes from the bride’s shoulders and spills onto the floor, capturing what the designer says is “Elsa’s regal appearance and her bold personality.”
Would you buy Disney’s new “Elsa” wedding gown and have a Frozen themed wedding or do you think Elsa’s appeal is more suited for children?
