Whether you’re a Disney enthusiast or just looking for a princess-esque wedding dress, choosing a gown inspired by one of the Disney princesses is an imaginative and unique way to set your look apart. We know the life of a Disney princess is less than realistic in today’s world, but there's no harm in channeling the aesthetic of your favorite character and feeling like the Belle of your ball. After all, your wedding day should feel like a fairytale, so a magical ballgown is definitely in order.  

Shopping for a Disney princess dress may pose a bit of a challenge since you’ll have to determine what you think encapsulates the look of the character you're trying to emulate. What you may see as the perfect match to Cinderella’s ballgown, may not read the same to somebody else. But that’s not a bad thing, as trying to copy a gown too closely may look more like a costume than a wedding dress. Plus, it’s much more fun explaining what inspired your ensemble, and it's an opportunity to show off some creativity.

With that in mind, we looked to a few iconic Disney princesses for wedding dress inspiration. Here are a few gowns that best emulate the heart of what it means to look magical on the big day.


Best Off-the-Shoulder

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a more discrete take on the famous mermaid’s look, consider this unconventional gown. The bra-like bodice is a similar style to Ariel’s shell bra, just with a bit more coverage. Plus, the tiered ruffled skirt ever so slightly resembles seaweed.

Best Train

Pronovias Baharia Gown

Size Range: Contact brand | Length: Floor-length | Material: Mikado

If you’re pulling inspiration from Aurora, the silhouette is key which is why we recommend this princess-style ballgown from Pronovias. What truly makes this dress stand out, though, is the cathedral-length train that will trail behind you as you walk down the aisle.

Best Long Sleeves

ASOS Edition Lola Satin Gown

Size Range: 0-14 | Length: Floor-length | Material: Satin

For a slightly more wallet-friendly take on Sleeping Beauty’s look, we are fans of this luxe-looking satin gown from ASOS. The structured neckline and full skirt are elements we could definitely see Aurora gravitating towards on her wedding day. 

What to Consider When Shopping for a Disney-Inspired Wedding Dress

When shopping for a Disney-inspired wedding dress, the most important thing is to steer clear of any costume-y designs. The key is to take inspiration from elements of a Disney princess, not to copy it exactly. For example, if you love Snow White and want to replicate her dress, opt for a gown with puff sleeves. Snow White’s style is minimalistic, so you’ll want to stay away from embellishments and long trains. On the other hand, if you are looking for a Cinderella-inspired look, you’ll want a princess-style ballgown that sparkles. Your best bet is to look at what makes each dress unique and pull from that.

Choosing a Disney princess dress is also a great opportunity to pull a bit of color into your bridal look. Soft tones like Belle’s pale yellow gown or Tiana’s chartreuse green dress may inspire your search if you’re looking for an unconventional wedding dress.

  • Where can I shop for a Disney Princess-inspired wedding dress?

    You’ll have the best luck searching for Disney-inspired gowns with veteran designers like Vera Wang and Zuhair Murad. These bigger brands tend to carry more intricate ballgowns. Amsale, Andrew Kwon, and Galia Lahav are also brands that carry more unique, ballgown-style dresses.

  • How much does a Disney Princess-inspired wedding dress cost?

    Most princess-inspired gowns feature lots of luxe fabrics and embellishments, meaning they might fall on the more expensive side. This is also the case if you choose a higher-end designer. On the other hand, there are certainly ballgowns out there that are more budget-friendly, so it varies.
