Don’t say you weren’t warned.
That’s all I have to say about these images of wedding gowns inspired by Disney Princesses and designed by Alfred Angelo.* It’s one thing to be a four year old pretending to be a Disney Princess, but a grown woman? On your wedding day? It really demonstrates the power of marketing and the exploitation of the ‘Princess Myth’. It’s promising more than just a dress, it’s comes with the implication that you are marrying your Prince Charming and you will live a life of Happy Ever After. Call me an old cynic, but I don’t think it works that way.
But before the wedding dresses, check out the little girl in this photo. that’s what I call bucking a trend!
And now for the gowns –
