These dresses are not just an homage to the late great creator but they stay current because they really understand what brides are looking for. The dresses are romantic and flirty, modern but timeless and most of all the occupy that space between whimsical and seriously dramatic. Whether or not you’re a fan of Disney or have a favorite Disney princess, you’re sure to find what you are looking for in this collection and this year was no different.
Shop Alfred Angelo designs out of curiosity, and shop them for their exceptional photography and runway show. The models do a good job of giving a nod to the head of the princess they are supposed to be portraying but without being exact replicas or looking too cheesy. Take the new Snow White gown from this year’s collection for example. The model is dark of hair and eye much like her gown’s namesake but she has a coy expression and she casually wields an apple in her right hand. She acknowledges the roots of the dress but she is looking to a more modern version of the fairy tale where perhaps the princess is not so helpless. This gown could stand on its own in any bridal collection. Made of the softest tulle it has a draped bodice with understated sweetheart neckline and a subtle ball gown feel as layers and layers of fabric lazily pile atop each other. The most stunning feature of this gown is a toss up between the gorgeous peach sash emblazoned with a bouquet of flowers or the cape-like feature at the back of the gown which drapes sensually behnd the runway model as she glides down the catwalk. The gowns come in white and ivory for the most discerning brides and a wide range of sizes so everybody can achieve their dream of becoming a princess.
This is one of the most talked about collections in bridal history so whether you feel yourself to be a princess or a queen, you owe it to yourself to take a look at what Alfred Angelo has to offer.
