As little girls, many of us dreamed of having a Disney-themed wedding, where we are the princesas of our own fairytale. Here are six tips to help you plan the ultimate Disney wedding and make that childhood dream come true:
An easy way to sprinkle a dash of Disney into your wedding is to add some magical touches. While peonies and white roses are definitely a popular wedding flower, it's also great to step away from tradition and be one of a kind. Customize your bouquet to fit your whimsical wedding. You can opt for red roses to pay homage to your favorite mouse or create a seashell bouquet for your under the seas wedding.
Trust us, the possibilities are endless.
Before any big preparation of the wedding itself, it is important to announce your special fairytale wedding! Invitations are the easiest way to establish the theme of your wedding. This is your opportunity to show your guests what to expect on your big day.
You can personalize your Disney-themed invites subtly by using colors that reminds you of a particular princess or go all out and invite your guests to a ball-like event. Be creative!
Choosing a venue for your Disney-themed wedding might be the hardest step. While Disney does give you the opportunity to host your wedding at one of their four magical locations with their Disney Fairy Tales Weddings & Honeymoons program, but realistically not everyone could afford it. However you can still choose a venue that fits perfectly with your desired theme at a more affordable cost.
If you decided on an Aladdin-themed wedding, look for venues that have an exotic Mediterranean feel to them. The venue itself will give guests that Arabian culture experience like seen in the movie.
Decorations for your wedding are of the utmost importance because they capture the essence of your Disney theme. There is an infinite amount of possibility on how you can express your theme. Remember to take into account every single detail, from the tables, to the flowers, to the centerpieces, etc. You can incorporate your theme at your tables by naming them after the characters of the Disney movie your wedding is based on.
One of the simplest ways to incorporate your Disney theme to your wedding cake is to add a cake topper. If you are having an Ariel-themed wedding, adding a seashell topper is a subtle way to give off that ocean vibe. Or even a topper featuring Ariel and Prince Eric. (Etsy has many Disney-inspired wedding cake toppers available for sale.)
If you decide on taking a simpler route, you can always decorate your cake with certain colors and embellishments that represent your theme.
6. Princess-Inspired Dresses
Every woman deserves to look like a princess, starting from the dress. Wedding dress designers like Alfred Angelo, are helping you find that perfect dream princess bridal gown. Angelo created a collection of wedding gowns that captures the personality of each princess. The wedding gowns range from the traditional ivory color to a beautiful color that is inspired by the princesses.
Alfred Angelo not only wants you to feel like a princess on your special day, but also your friends and family. The designer offers a wide range of Disney maiden's dresses and flower girl dresses perfect to complete your fairy tale wedding.
7. Glass Slippers
No matter which Disney theme you end up choosing, no princess is complete without her glass slippers. In 2012, shoe designer Christian Louboutin collaborated with Disney to bring Cinderella’s iconic glass slippers to life. According to Louboutin, "the slipper is the magic wand of transformation, which conjures confidence, beauty and love." The designer used lace with crystal embellishments, while still including the trademark red sole on his modern take on the iconic shoe.
Unfortunately, there were only 20 pairs of the modern-day version of the Cinderella's glass slipper. But no worries, there are a lot of princess-worthy heels made from lace out there that still give that delicate glass slipper look.
