Coming off the recent 30th Celebration & Fashion Show, we'll share a few details:
Allure Bridals and Disney have teamed up once again to offer a new collection of gowns inspired by Disney princesses. The highlight of the 2021 Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Collection is a trio of gowns inspired by Belle, who is also celebrating a milestone as this year marks the 30th anniversary of “Beauty and the Beast.”

Brides can also celebrate in style with a redesigned bridal headband with pearl accents in tribute to the 30th anniversary of Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings. Bride and groom-themed Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse ears will also be available.
McFann was joined by other members of the wedding team to discuss recent wedding trends.
One of the biggest they’ve noticed: Couples are simplifying weddings, opting for “micro weddings” amid the pandemic as well as to keep the celebration more personal. As a result, destination weddings have become more popular, which extends the festivities into a vacation and helps limit the guest list, as many won’t make the trip.
In the era of COVID-19, outdoor weddings have also grown in popularity and planning has shifted from in-person meetings to largely virtual discussions via Zoom and other platforms.
