I know http://www.weddingdressfantasy.com/ has some amazing and over the top dresses – not sure if the style is what you’re after since they tend towards gothic, but you can get them in any colour and they presumably do custom.

I do remember that amazing gold dress.  I don’t know how to copy & paste the link, but you can find the thread under “Recaps” and her usernmane is frillsandthrills.

She had her dress custom made, so I imagine it was very expensive or would be to people who aren’t in the trade. 

What’s the budget?

Yeah, her family owns a bridal shop. So it was easier for her to achive that.

I think you should get an estimate from a custom tailor in your town.

I have no idea what your personal style or budget is, but here are a few that look “princessy” to me! You can have them made in about 40 different colours so you could have it done in white if you wanted.

Have you ever seen the Nephi Garcia, aka designerdaddy_ on instagram? He’s this super cool dad who went viral for creating incredible disney-iinspired dresses for his children, but he also makes custom ones for adults, whether it’s for cosplay or for weddings! You should look at his stuff and email him if you’re interested!   designerdaddy_

 

some of them are more costumy, but he did design his wife’s wedding dress: https://www.instagram.com/p/BTMdXydhyQU/?taken-by=designerdaddy_ 

and he’s also done some disney-inspired bridal gowns as well:

He just does incredible work. I bet he could make you whatever you wanted. I have no idea how much it would cost but it’s worth getting a quote I think!

wellcutcarrot : This may be out of your price range – I think you’re looking at a minimum $3k – but Ian Stuart’s designs are quite princessy. I’m not sure about their corset status (the website doesn’t show back photos) but I know the dresses are quite popular with plus size brides due to being heavily structured and boned, so maybe an option?

In a more sensible price range, Sophia Tolli has a few options, though maybe they’re not Disney enough:

The other thing – maybe you could look at prom/quinceanera dresses? They are more likely than wedding dresses at the moment to have that corset look at the moment, guess it’s a fashion thing. Like – this looks pretty Disney to me:

Some more – some of these come in white as well:

If you’re looking for a Disney esqu princess gown then I’d look at Hayley Paige. Her gowns are so romantic and stunning. I’ll post a picture of my gown, which is the Lorelei by HP but also look at Essence of Australia. They have fantastic dreamlike gowns too. I tried one of theirs which I thought was IT when I saw it online but it was too heavy for me. First pic is HP, second is Allure and 3rd is Essence of Australia. What’s your budget?

My gown has all of the above (corset, boning, huge skirt, beaded bodice). Most arent a fan oft he sheer bodice but I plan on using a sheer modesty panel to provide a little coverage. unnamed (2)dress3
