Okay, so let’s admit it. A lot of little girls grow up watching the Disney movies, and picturing themselves as the heroine or princess in the fairy tale. Not all of us, but a lot. The classic Disney movies are some of the most loved and often watched of any genre, with worldwide recognition. (Even the recent releases do well at the box office: Disney’s Frozen was the highest grossing animated movie of all time.) The Disney princesses inspire many a little girl’s Hallowe’en costume, birthday party theme, and favorite dress-up choice.
So it kind of makes sense that Disney decided to offer a line of wedding and attendant gowns that are inspired by some of their most iconic characters. They paired up with bridal designer Alfred Angelo to offer a Fairy Tale Weddings bridal collection, and created gowns for the various Disney princesses.
Because it’s Monday and we could all use something light, I decided it might be fun to match some of our lovely BunchesDirect bridal bouquets to the top 5 Disney heroines and the gowns that were created for each. If your personality matches a particular princess, you might also like the wedding flowers that are chosen for her.

1. Elsa from Frozen
This is the newest gown, set to be released in January 2014, which is supposed to be a sparkling, ice-blue creation. Cool whites and blues would be a good match here:
2. Jasmine from Aladdin
This character is bold and exotic, inspired by the Arabian Nights. I think her wedding flowers would be exotic and eye-catching, in rich hues with large blooms:
3. Snow White
Snow White was the fairest in the land, with skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony. She is a study in elegant contrasts, and her flowers would be very striking in bold reds:
4. Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
Ariel was adventurous and curious, and the setting was ocean and beach. Her wedding flowers might include tropical colors inspired by the sea and a Caribbean vibe:
5. Sleeping Beauty
Aurora was a delicate, ultra-feminine beauty and her story is a classic romance. I see pastel pinks as a good match for this gown (and the bouquet titles are very apt!):
