Alfred Angelo, America’s oldest and largest family-owned and operated bridal company, has unveiled the first gown from its 2014 Disney Fairy Tale Weddings collection inspired by Disney Princess Ariel. The gown’s debut is timed with the release of The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition on Blu-ray™ and celebrates Ariel’s determined, adventurous and spirited personality.
The new Ariel-inspired gown can be seen on the cover of the November/December issue of Bridal Guide magazine and features a sweetheart neckline and bodice made of hand-tacked, draped organza over satin. The skirt is designed with vertical rows of flowing organza ruffles edged with silk ribbon and metallic embroidery. To add a splash of glamor and sparkle, the gown is finished with an organza belt sewn with crystals and silver beading.
‘Our Ariel gown reflects the waves of the sea. It makes a grand, elegant statement while creating light, undulating movement as the bride walks,’ said Denise Wash, vice president of marketing at Alfred Angelo. ‘Ariel has many facets to her personality and is known for taking risks, so the sweetheart strapless silhouette is the first-ever ball gown we’ve created for Ariel.’
In honor of the new gown, brides can enter the Alfred Angelo Ariel 2014 Sweepstakes now through Dec. 9, 2013, to win the dress of their dreams and a romantic Disney Fairy Tale Weddings honeymoon at Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando, Fla.
