Hello Kitty Wedding Gowns
I outgrew Hello Kitty when I was seven years old but I guess some girls aren’t too old for this white Japanese cat by Sanrio. Brides with the money to spare for kitsch can shell out $4,000 for a ruffly, pink wedding dress adorned with Hello Kitty’s face. The Hello Kitty wedding dress is exclusively available in Japan, although I’m not entirely sure if they’re licensed by Sanrio to use the image of the white cartoon kitty. Its ornate design is definitely very Japanese though; the large hoop skirt reminds me a little of the royal wedding gowns by Takami Bridal and Jill Stuart.
And if that’s not enough for the hardcore fan, you can apparently get an entire Hello Kitty wedding done at the Daiichi Hanyu hotel chain in Japan. Wedding packages cost somewhere in between $8,717 – $22,275.
Sanrio’s not the only company to offer cartoon-themed weddings for brides who are children at heart. Last year, Disney launched a line of wedding gowns for women who wish to look and feel like their favorite fairy tale princess on their wedding day. The most expensive Disney Princess wedding dress is a thousand bucks cheaper than the Hello Kitty wedding dress, probably because Disney gowns are a lot less poofy and busy-looking.
