Esmeralda and Phoebus Disney Hunchback of Notre Dame

For a wedding gown you can take your fashion cues really from one of two of the story’s ladies; Esmeralda or Fleur de Lys. We’ll talk about Fleur de Lys style wedding gowns later so let’s get to Esmeralda.

With Esmeralda you can be inspired from the movies as it’s already a visual medium and Victor “describe a Snow at Sea in every detail” Hugo was surprisingly quiet on clothing detail, maybe he didn’t care or know anything about fashion, Margaret Mitchell, he is not.   Anyway you can take inspiration from any movies, like the Disney movie, 1939, 1923 or Notre Dame de Paris. I would just say that the Disney movie look is the most iconic.

A few details I would suggest when looking for an Esmeralda’s inspired wedding gown. Think about the movement of the fabric. Esmeralda is a dancer so fabric should have a nice movement and flow to it.

Consider off-the-shoulder for the neckline.

Tier detailing on the skirt is a pretty and very bohemian detail.

Skip Lace and opt for beading, it’s more Esmeralda.

And if you want and are daring enough, make it green! Or have green details.
