With the release of Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast, fans of all ages are excited to relive the magic that first graced our screens over 25 years ago. As the film’s official Instagram account gave fans a taste of its aesthetic, all eyes were on Belle’s lineup of dresses.
While her iconic yellow dress has a special place in our hearts, the unveiling of her “celebration” gown garnered a huge response from both fans and the fashion world. The white gown, characterized by flowing sleeves and delicate floral detail, had many thinking of a wedding dress. For any bride looking to bring out her inner princess, these designers certainly have made fantasy a reality.
Galia Lahav is a couture bridal house with a flair for the extravagant. Illusion backs, Italian ivory lace, and cascading tulle skirts are just a few of the brand’s defining features. Their Le Secret Royal Collection exudes elegance, and was literally inspired by royalty. The gowns’ floral details are reminiscent of wandering through the gardens of storybook castle.
With an emphasis on high-end variety, Morilee promises that each bride find exactly what she’s looking for. Designer Madeline Gardner believes in the importance of details to make every dress special. Their fairy tale-inspired ball gowns, for the romantic, are defined by vintage lace and soft lines.
Inspired by her childhood in Southern California and summers spent in Paris, Sabrina Dahan infuses effortless luxury in every dress crafted for her brand. Her spring collection echoes Belle’s “celebration” gown with splashes of colorful detail brought to a world of white.
Moonlight Bridal believes that a wedding dress isn’t simply a garment, but an experience unique to each bride. Each gown from their three collections is crafted to accentuate the individual beauty of their clients. Their newest couture collection features details any princess could desire; endless trains, beaded detailing, and even daring colors as red as the Enchanted Rose.
To say Julie Vino’s passion for crafting completely one-of-a-kind bridal gowns would be an understatement. The designer regularly sources fabric from all over the world, even adding painstaking embroidery detail to further infuse each gown with exquisite detail. While her fall 2017 collection was inspired by the city of Naples, any bride’s inner princess will appreciate the enchanting combination of semi-sheer tulle and lace appliqués.
