"So many brides grow up admiring their favorite Disney princess characters and are inspired by their journeys," said Allure Bridals CEO Kelly Crum in a press release about the new line, available in sizes 0-30. "We are honored to work with Disney on this collection and see the romance of it come to life."

But is there a market for Disney-loving brides?

When Rebecca Bukard got married in 2008, Disney wedding dresses did not exist. The Kansas teacher says she would have worn one when she walked down the aisle f they had.Rebecca Bukard

Rebecca Burkard, a teacher from Kansas, and her husband, Bret, added Disney-themed touches to their 2008 wedding, which they held in Burkard's hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.

"I incorporated a few classic Disney movies into the day," Burkard told TODAY Style. "My cake was 'Sleeping Beauty'-themed, my bridesmaids wore Cinderella-blue dresses and my flowers were themed around 'Alice in Wonderland.' This was all prior to Disney bridal stuff being a huge thing and it was before Etsy. I just had to be as creative as I could."

Burkard says if she had known Disney wedding dresses existed when she tied the knot, she'd have been all in.

"There's nothing any Disney-obsessed adult would want more than to be a real-life Disney princess," said Burkard. "I feel like my dress was amazing, but to embrace or embody a Disney princess for a day would be a dream come true."

Katelyn Cushey married her husband, Preston, in 2015 at Disney's wedding pavilion at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa at Walt Disney World. The couple added small, Disney-themed elements to their big day. (That included Swarovski Mickey Mouse crystals on the unity candles used in the ceremony and "Beauty and the Beast"-themed tables at the reception.)

"Disney is important to us because it holds so much nostalgic value," said Cushey. "We didn't want a full-blown Disney wedding but we did decide to have one not-so-subtle touch: We arrived and left the wedding venue in Cinderella's carriage, equipped with miniature horses and a coachman and footman. It was truly magical and I felt like a princess."

Cushey's wedding gown was inspired by the princesses she loves — Belle and Cinderella — and the 30-year-old says she enjoyed having a vast array of dresses to choose from at the bridal boutique. And she felt beautiful.

"That was more important than picking a dress solely because it was a Disney princess wedding dress would be," said Cushey. "I think the magic of my dress was that it made me feel like a princess, not that I was a princess because I specifically bought a Disney-princess dress."

A Disney consumer products spokesperson told TODAY Style that while other Disney wedding gown collaborations have existed in the past, the line from Allure Bridals is the only one currently available.

"We are excited about this new bridal collection with Allure Bridals," the spokesperson said.
