A bridal company has unveiled a new wedding dress collection inspired by Disney’s most popular princesses.

Alfred Angelo today introduced its 2015 Disney Fairy Tale Weddings bridal collection, which includes dresses inspired by nine Disney princess characters, including a highly-anticipated bridal gown inspired by Elsa from the phenomenally popular animated musical Frozen.

The brand’s new collection is aimed at bride’s who are inspired by the whimsical fantasy of their favorite Disney films, but don’t want to walk down the aisle wearing something that looks like a design that has been taken straight from an animated movie.

The dresses, which have been inspired by Cinderella, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Jasmine from Aladdin, Tiana from the Princess and the Frog, Snow White, Rapunzel from Tangled, and Ariel from the Little Mermaid, as well as Elsa, are showcased in a beautiful photoshoot, which sees each dress captured in a setting befitting the princess it represents.

And while all of the gowns have been created in a specific color that the designer feels best

Elsa’s dress is showcased by a blonde model in what appears to be a frost-covered room. The model has her hair pulled into a braid just like that worn by the Frozen character, and the icy blue coloring of the strapless gown mirrors that of the dress worn by Elsa throughout much of the movie.

For Cinderella, the model wearing the gown has been captured standing in front of a horse-drawn carriage, like that featured in the animated movie, and the recently-released live-action remake, both of which were created from a pumpkin by Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother.

Princess brides: The collection’s Cinderella dress features the same beautiful full skirt and beaded detailing as the gown worn by the character in the movie (L). The dress inspired by Sleeping Beauty (R) is showcased by a model who is sleeping on a bed of rose petals

Sleeping Beauty’s Aurora wears a white and pale pink gown, and is pictured sleeping on a bed of rose petals, while Jasmine, from Aladdin, can be seen lounging on a day bed in an indigo jumpsuit with beaded embellishments on the top half.

The modern design comes complete with a detachable train, sheer back yoke and crystal beading that gives it a feeling of luxury which is befitting an Arabian princess.

Ariel, from the Little Mermaid, is – unsurprisingly – pictured walking along a beach, with the waves in the background. Her sea-green strapless dress is inspired by the color of the animated character’s mermaid tail, while the model has the same red hair as the original animated Ariel.

The flared gown has been crystal-beaded throughout to sparkle like treasures from the deep, while the dramatic skirt has been layered with glitter net to shimmer like sunlight on the waves.

The only 3D animation featured in the bridal line-up is Tangled, which was used to inspire the dress created in honor of its central character Rapunzel.

To showcase this particular design, the model can be seen posing in front of a stunning backdrop of floating lanterns, which, in the movie, are used to honor the birthday of the young Princess Rapunzel. In the shoot, the model wears the same purple shade showcased by Rapunzel throughout the film, while her hair is styled in the same floral braid as the character.

Princess Tiana, the first black princess ever to feature in a Disney animation and the star of the Princess and the Frog wears a green gown, no doubt inspired by the color of the amphibian that she transforms into not long after the start of the movie.

She can be seen posing up with a handsome suitor against a backdrop that reflects the bayou that Tiana and her frog-turned-prince travel through during the movie.

A real-life princess: The Tangled dress, inspired by Rapunzel (L), features the same purple coloring as the movie character’s gown, while Tiana’s ensemble is green, just like the gown she wears to marry her handsome prince (R)

Snow White’s gown is the same beautiful red as the apple offered up to her by the Evil Queen, while Belle’s gown, inspired by the gold ensemble she wears for a romantic dinner with the Beast, features a number of floral embellishments on the full tulle skirt.

Chief Creative Officer and family member at Alfred Angelo, Michele Piccione, said of the designs: ‘Along with the silhouettes and embellishments of each gown, color gives us another way to bring the magic of Disney’s imagined storytelling to life and allow brides to express their individuality on their special day.’

Thus far the new collection has received an overwhelmingly positive response on social media, with Disney fans the world over taking to Twitter and Instagram to praise the dresses – and to choose which one they would wear when their big day comes around.

‘I love Disney everything and so these dresses are perfect for me!’ one person wrote, before adding: ‘I’m definitely going for Cinderella.’

Another added: ‘This Frozen dress is actually perfect.’

Brace yourself, everyone — we have a real wedding that’s going to completely blow you away. This Victorian affair has every single detail nailed to perfection, right down to the reception tables sprinkled with images of Steampunk cult icons. Images are from the always amazing Braedon Flynn!

From the bride, Kate: Jacob and I are both artists. When we started sketching out ideas for the wedding, we new we wanted our guests to feel like they were in another world. That being said, we also needed the wedding to be everything that is truly “us.” After a few months of brainstorming with our designer, Tricia Fountaine, Jacob said “It’s like a steampunk Zeppelin crash-landed in a fairy forest.” It became clear that Steampunk was the perfect avenue to create an elegant, fantastical and imaginative wedding. Steampunk merges the idea of Victorian art and fashion with a science fiction flare. Ray-guns and cowboys, Steam Engines and Airships, Gibson Girl and Princess Leia.

It was important to us that our family felt like they were at a big reunion. Everything was casual, from the hay bales in the ceremony to the picnic benches in the reception. We even had blankets in baskets placed all over the ranch.

We decided on rich browns, deep reds, and other colours of autumn to accent the coppers and blacks. Copper is a huge part in steampunk design, and was also everywhere in our wedding. Tricia Fountaine and I did most of the work. We scoured junkyards, flea markets and strange stores to find everything. Some of my favourite memories from the wedding are all the small details we added to everything to really bring the look of the world together.

It’s hard to deny that Disney makes the most memorable childhood movies ever.

Your life would have been totally empty without their magic, humor, and wisdom.

But as a kid, there might have been some feminist moments that went right over your head.

Like when Mulan fights in the war and proves women are just as strong and dependable as men.

*Cuts hair with sword* *Runs the world*

Or when Ursula sneakily takes Ariel’s voice in The Little Mermaid, and proves that a woman’s voice is extremely important to the world.

How dare you silence me, sea creature!

Or maybe when Meg is attacked by a monster, and is extremely opposed to Hercules’ manly rescue.
