It's been awhile since we last made a Rebellious Idea post but with Frozen coming out, we just had to make one! I never had that much expectations with Frozen. In my opinion, the last epic Disney movies that really came out were Mulan & Hercules. After that, they just kind of struggled (perhaps because they also focused on Pixar?). With Frozen, I FINALLY felt like the magical days of Little Mermaid, Lion King, Beauty & The Beast, Aladdin, Mulan, and Hercules are here again. Frozen has that same flair. I'm so in love with it maybe because it has brought out the child in me again--but at the same time, it's a new generation of Disney that I have come to experience with my own little family.
The film is ooooozing with wedding ideas! And I don't care if there's no ice in the Philippines. I think that the same way that Olaf loves the idea of summer and the sun (even if that doesn't even make sense--which makes it sooo hilarious), we can reverse that into tropical meets ice. We've never been one to care much for rules. And as Elsa would say, "The cold never bothered me anyway". So let's start!
The Bride as Elsa, the Ice Queen
(Gown by Elie Saab)
Cool as ice. That's the peg for the bride as she exudes Elsa in all of her magical, snow flake glory.
We imagine her gown to be as sparkly, fluid, and almost kind of see-through like--the same effect it had in the movie when Elsa transformed herself in the "Let It Go" sequence.
Alternate Look: Elsa has two looks in the movie--the first one was when she was still prim & proper, and the other one when she became icy cool. So perhaps the bride can also have two looks?
Other bridal elements that are "Elsa inspired" would be her long braids adorned with maybe flowers or crystals. When it comes to the makeup, you can either follow the purple frosted eyes or keep it more simple with a natural ethereal look.
As for her bouquet, why a snowflake bouquet looks absolutely gorgeous and magical! Can somebody please consider a snowflake bouquet??? It looks soooo breathtaking! (Sigh). Now as for the shoes, Elsa's "signature move" is when she stomps with her killer shoes--so a kick-ass pair of pumps will definitely finish the look.

The Maid-of-Honor as Anna
(Gown by Elie Saab)
The maid-of-honor has to be inspired by no other than Elsa's sister, Anna. Anna is kind of the opposite of Elsa in a sense that she has that "Spring/Summer Season" kind of quality to her. Her various outfits in the movie always have prints on them--mostly flowers. So we wanted to maintain that same vibe. In the movie, Elsa and Anna almost have equal billing. And we reckon that when it comes to a Frozen themed wedding, the bride should be rebellious enough to share the spotlight with her maid-of-honor as well (wouldn't it be even more emotional if the MOH was also a super close sister?).
The Entourage as Ice Princesses
(Gowns by Elie Saab)
I love the idea of making the entourage look like ice princesses. After all, this is a Disney-themed kind of wedding so everybody has to look just as magical and fantastical as the bride. Top the look with braided hairstyles, ice-coated nail polish effects, and instead of bouquets create a giant DIY ornament that has flowers inside!
The Men as Prince Charming
Technically, Elsa doesn't have a "love team" in the movie (which is refreshing for a Disney film!). And the only prince ended up being a villain (sorry for the spoiler! WATCH THE MOVIE!). But it is a modern fairy tale so it kind of makes sense to dress up the guys in dapper outfits that have like a prince charming quality about it.
The Flower Girls as Little Elsa and Little Anna
The flower girls will be in blue and green satin dresses with exaggerated bow sashes. Purple flowers were one of the main spring elements in the movie so we wanted to incorporate that by having the flower girls carry baskets of purple pretties :)
Crystals, Icy Blue, and Snowflakes are just some of the templates that can be used to create that Frozen-themed reception. Use these elements to layer the look as much as you can. But not everything should be about this because it's the "obvious" kind of winter or ice themed wedding. Add it to create volume but the key is to make it unique to Frozen as it can be. See below:
Olaf, Olaf, and more Olaf! It wouldn't really be a Frozen wedding if Olaf wasn't around, right? Use him as an element where possible! It would also be nice to have doodles of memorable quotes from the movie such as: "Some people are worth melting for", "Love will thaw a frozen heart", or "Love is an open door with you" :)
Devil in the details. There are other Frozen-inspired details that may not necessarily be obvious but to true blue fans, these elements are worth including: intricately decorated doors, a wooden swing set, and paintings are just some of the incidental elements in the movie that can make it even more personal.
