Okay, I have a confession to make here – that whole wedding fever that some women get, where they obsess over the minute details of “their” special day? I’ve never really gotten that. I mean, do you know how much weddings cost? It’s a lot of money, and it’s gone in a day. Call me a pragmatist, but I’d rather spend that money on a down payment for a house or on an awesome trip. I also can’t help thinking that it sometimes veers more towards celebrating the bride rather than the union of two people. (It’s no wonder women in Japan have started having solo weddings!) Still, a wedding is a centuries-old tradition, and lots of people love the spectacle and ceremony of it. And what better theme could there be for a glitzy wedding than “Indian Disney Princess”? Canadian formal attire company Wellgroomed Designs have come up with nine concept gowns focusing on specific Disney princesses, and they look amazing!
Jasmine Nijjar, the marketing manager for Wellgroomed Designs, created the range of Disney Princess inspired gowns that incorporate elements of traditional Indian bridal wear as an example of the kind of creations the company can provide. Which one is your favourite?
▼ Ariel, The Little Mermaid
▼ Aurora, Sleeping Beauty
▼ Belle, Beauty and The Beast
▼ Cinderella, Cinderella
▼ Jasmine, Aladdin
▼ Mulan, Mulan
▼ Snow White, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
▼ Rapunzel, Tangled
▼ Pocahontas, Pocahontas
The only trouble with wearing one of these dresses is… what to choose for the bridesmaids? And where are the Disney Prince outfits? After all, there’s more to a wedding than just a glamorous bride (…isn’t there?)
