Disney Property vs. Disney-Themed

The general consensus is that if you want a true Disney wedding, you must tie the knot at a Disney venue. If you’ve ever seen the program “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings” featuring Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins, you’ve probably caught a glimpse of the wonderful possibilities that come with planning a ceremony on-site. While you may be considering popular destinations like Disney World Resort, including Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios, or even dreamy tropical locations like a Disney Cruise or Hawaii’s Aulani Resort, don’t forget that you can also infuse Disney magic into your nuptials no matter where you choose to celebrate. By bringing in essentials like stunning flower arrangements and dazzling decor, you can create a truly magical and heartwarming wedding experience that brings the Disney spirit to your own chosen venue.

Bringing Your Disney Dreams to Life 

In the realm of Disney weddings, doing “too much” simply isn’t possible. Whether you’re having an extravagant affair or going for a do-it-yourself approach, having some extra help is vital to bring your Disney dreams to fruition. Select flowers and color palettes inspired by your favorite Disney character, movie, or park. Get creative with grand floral arrangements and imaginative centerpieces that recreate the ambiance of a royal ballroom or honor any Disney element close to your heart. Create a luxe floral pattern to adorn your ceremony aisle, capturing the essence of the stunning flowers and landscapes you see in the parks —remember to add a hidden Mickey for that extra touch of magic. Elevate the experience with extravagant aisle toppers and markers, adding layers and depth to turn your fairytale wedding dreams into reality.

Belle’s Wedding

If you’re planning a Belle-inspired wedding, you can’t go without red roses! Combine them with yellow and white flowers and add vintage gold touches. Create centerpieces with gold candelabras adorned with twinkling white candles, red roses displayed in a cloche or a glass bell jars, and a small stack of vintage books topped with a bloom-filled teacup — the perfect Inso for a beautiful and beastly event. Consider using navy linens for the tables or dressing the groomsmen in navy suits. As for the bridal gown, a dress with dazzling accents and off-the-shoulder sleeves will pay homage beautifully to Belle’s iconic golden gown.

Aurora’s Wedding

For a wedding inspired by Aurora’s song “Once Upon a Dream,” embrace delicate pastel pinks and charming blues. Opt for flowers such as sweet peas, hydrangeas, lilacs, roses, delphinium, and peonies to create an elegant and whimsical atmosphere. Mix subtly rustic decorations with metallic touches to transport your guests to the enchanting forest outside of Sleeping Beauty’s castle. Choose an A-line wedding gown with a flowing silhouette, featuring either bishop sleeves or an off-the-shoulder neckline, to truly capture Aurora’s natural beauty.

Cinderella’s Wedding

Let your wedding day be a fairytale come true, just like Cinderella and Prince Charming. Transform your venue into a magical wonderland adorned with white and blue flowers, glistening gold and clear glass accents, and elegant blue tulle table runners. If you’re planning an autumn wedding, embrace the season by incorporating shades of blue, white, and even some orange pumpkins. Don’t forget to arrive in style with a horse-drawn carriage if your budget allows for it. For the bridal look, a magnificent princess ballgown paired with a timeless updo and long gloves will complete the enchanting Cinderella look. As for the groom, a spotless tuxedo in white, beige, or tan is the perfect choice.

Start by selecting a color palette that includes purples, greens, deep blues, and turquoise. Use a variety of flowers such as dianthus, thistle, orchids, iris, lilies, dahlias, and even succulents to fashion lavish floral arrangements for arches, cascading bridal bouquets, centerpieces, and ceremony bouquets. Swap rhinestones for pearls and bring in an array of pretty metallics, flowing fabrics, thrifted antique items, and sea glass. For the perfect bridal look, choose a dazzling mermaid wedding gown and adorn your long wavy hairstyle with a bow. For Prince Eric’s look, the groom can wear a dapper blue suit paired with a beige tie.
