Dressing for a wedding can be a daunting task for any bride, but for Stephanie Barbie it was an absolute dream come true.
The 28-year-old from Dallas, Texas, wore a floral and white dress and red lipstick for her upcoming wedding.
Barbie said she had no idea her wedding dress would be such a hit when it was released last year.
“I have never been more excited for a day in my life,” Barbie said.
“When I woke up, I knew that I had to wear this dress to my wedding.”

“The dress was a big part of me growing up and I was really proud to wear it,” Barbitat said.
Stephanies dress, which has a black bodice, has a long backline and a satin-like finish.
Barbita said the dress was inspired by the princess Jasmine and the pirate’s crew from Aladdin and the film’s sequel.
“It’s a symbol of all things that are beautiful and the joy of life,” she said.
Barbies dress was part of the show, which featured gowns by other designer Stephanie Barbieras and by British designer Sophie Van Heerden.

Barbi and her husband were featured in Aladdin at the 2017 AMNH.
Barberi, who is also a fashion designer, said she was inspired to design a gown for Barbie because she had similar experiences with other princesses.
“We have had princesses in our family, we have been on Disney princess tours, and we’ve been in the fashion industry,” Barbi said.
The wedding gown was inspired after Barbie was asked if she would like a dress made for her.
Barbeti said the challenge was to create a gown that would make the most of her long back and the way the dress fits her.
“There is no point in wearing a dress if it isn’t flattering,” she explained.
Barbeis dress was so popular that it was made into a set of gowns, and it is sold at the AmNH Costume show and sold online.
Barbits dress sold out on Amazon within two hours.
