24 Disney Wedding Ideas To Happily Ever After
If you love everything about fairy tale endings, from swoon-worthy ballgowns to enchanting carriage rides into the sunset, we've got a few ideas for you. There are subtle ways to tie the magic you love about your favorite Disney movies into your wedding day without going over the top—or being too cliché.
Did you grow up fascinated by Beauty and the Beast's enchanted rose? Hello centerpiece inspiration. Maybe Alice In Wonderland is sparking some cocktail hour ideas (think: calligraphed "drink me" straw tags). Here are 19 ways to elevate sweet Disney details into wedding-worthy decor.
1. Collect Disney-Themed Wedding Ideas
You aren't the first, and you certainly won't be the last person to want to add a little Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo to give your wedding a Disney enchantment. Instead of trying to reinvent the Disney wheel, head over to your new favorite online destination, the Disney wedding page. Yes, this does exist. Here you can linger over Disney dream boards, the Ever After blog and real couple stories to pull endless inspiration.
2. Get Married at The Happiest Place on Earth
What's more Disney than getting married at Disney World, Disney Land or any of the many amazing Disney properties around the world? Yes, it is absolutely possible to get married at a Disney location, including Disney resorts around the world, Epcot and even on a Disney cruise ship. One of the most unique locations is Disney's Wedding Pavilion, located on an island surrounded by water with a backdrop of the Cinderella castle. To book a Disney wedding venue, visit the Disney wedding website.
3. Hire a Disney Wedding Planner
You won't have to spend endless hours coming up with Disney wedding ideas if you work with a Disney wedding planner. If you want to book a Disney wedding venue, you'll be assigned a Disney wedding planner. Your planning team can create a Disney theme wedding based on your favorite Disney movie -- imagine a whimsical Alice in Wonderland themed wedding -- and help you choose all the accessories you need to create the most magical day possible. Your wedding planner will also help you with all the other important facets of a wedding, like choosing your florals, entertainment, catering, photography, and videography.
4. Say Yes to a Princess-Inspired Dress
Did you know that each year Disney releases the official Disney Fairy Tale Wedding Collections through Allure Bridals? Well, they do. If your childhood was spent dreaming of the gorgeous dresses of Ariel, Tiana, Aurora, Belle and other Disney princesses, then this is the collection for you. You won't find the exact same dresses (you are your own princess, anyway), but you'll enjoy those same elegant and beautiful elements that will make you feel like you're in a fairy tale when you walk down the aisle.
5. Wear Disney-Themed Accessories
A princess-worthy dress isn't the only way to channel Disney vibes in your wedding attire. These super-cute Minnie Mouse studs are a sweet and subtle alternative (or addition) to that beautiful ball gown.
