    Netizens were so mesmerized by a gorgeous beaded wedding dress created by Ivan Gunawan that it became the most liked of its kind ever on Instagram.

    The dress, worn by Indonesian bride Intan Azzahra in her wedding to actor Zendhy Zaen, sparked online frenzy when it was shared in March 2017, according to The Sun.

    It received more than 200,000 likes on the social media platform when it was first shared, and has since been referred to as the “Most Liked Wedding Dress on Instagram.”

    Harper’s Bazaar magazine also called the dress “the definition of a Disney princess gown” in its November 2017 article.

    The dress’ magnificent detail, particularly the pearl embroidery, waves of tulle, iridescent beads and a train made from silk, added to its beauty.

    Azzahra then topped this Disney princess-like dress with a glittering tiara and diamond pearl-drop earrings, which went really well with the couple’s fairytale wedding theme.

    Her husband also played along with the role of Prince Charming. Zaen wore a smart, white, diamond-encrusted military uniform to go well with his bride’s gown.

    As much as we hate to see the wedding dress go, both the bride and groom changed into even more jaw dropping attire — a custom Hengki Kawilarang gown for the evening reception.
