Ellis Bridals

The best dreamy princess wedding dresses

Want to look like a princess on your wedding day? These dresses are 100% palace-worthy

Many of us have dreamed of our wedding days since we were just children and so it’s no surprise that so many brides choose to draw inspiration from fairy tales when it comes to their big day look.


While we recommend trying on a variety of shapes, it’s important that you feel amazing in whichever dress you choose and we challenge anyone not to feel pretty awesome in a princess wedding dress.

Whether it’s the intricate details or the flowing skirts, there’s just something utterly dreamy and, dare we say it, magical about princess gowns. With so much going for them, they’re guaranteed to make an impact on your big day and have everyone fully focussed on you.

Princess dresses are also totally classic, so you don’t need to worry about dated photographs in years to come. Ball gown shapes and traditional glamour will age well and give you a look that you’ll love forever.

Big skirts, shimmer, layered fabric and plenty of detail are all on our princess wedding dress shopping lists and we’ve found some of the most stunning gowns out there, so even the least girlie brides will feel tempted to try on a ball gown!

From blush tones to traditional white and shimmering metallics, there is something for every bride below. And with a variety of budgets in mind, we prove that you don’t need a royal bank account to look like you’ve come fresh from a palace.

Grab your tiaras ladies and let’s begin your very own happily ever after!
