10 Princess Wedding Dresses for your Barbie Wedding
Barbie has a long history with marriage, let's dive in to learn more and find you your dream Barbie princess wedding gown, from fluffy trumpet skirts to big and bold A-line dresses!
Barbie is an industry within itself, with the doll being conceptualised by Ruth Handler in the 1950's, named after her own daughter Barbara. It was created as an inspiration to empower young girls to be anything they wanted, with Barbie's many career paths being showcased in the recent release of the 2023 'Barbie' film, starring Margot Robbie.
Handler didn't want Barbie to aspire to marriage and children as her life goal, as this was a path expected of girls in the 1950's, so she refused for Barbie to get married to Ken. But, this didn't stop Barbie donning princess wedding gowns throughout her shelf life, including special Barbie wedding sets and bridal Barbie dolls, allowing those that wanted to choose marriage for Barbie to be able to live out this fantasy. Marriage is now a choice for most modern couples, allowing children the fantasy of marriage if that aligns with their wishes.
If the recent 'Barbie' movie release is anything to go by, Barbie continues to inspire generations with her fashion and we've taken inspiration from her many beautiful bridal gowns to bring you our pick of the perfect princess wedding dresses to fit your Barbie wedding theme!
