If you have always dreamed of that fairytale wedding, look no further than Disney for all of your nuptial needs. Disney sets the gold standard when it comes to magical weddings. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you begin planning the most beautiful day of your life.
Choosing Your Nuptial Location: Disney offers a myriad of places where you can say “I Do” across its massive network of theme parks. The heart and soul of a Disney wedding is its dedicated wedding pavilion located at the flagship Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. The chapel at this site provides sweeping views of the Seven Seas Lagoon with Cinderella’s Castle in the distance. It is also possible to get married at any of the four unique theme parks or dozens of themed resorts. This flexibility gives you the ultimate versatility when planning your dream wedding. In addition to your actual wedding and reception, you can work with your Disney wedding planner to plan a themed rehearsal dinner, send-off brunch, or welcome event for your guests. The possibilities are endless.
Think Outside of the World: While many people think of Walt Disney World as the go-to destination for all of your wedding needs, you do not have to limit yourself to this Central Florida theme park mecca. If you are more of a West Coast girl, you can consider the original Disneyland Park for your wedding as you exchange your vows where it all started. For something tropical, consider a wedding at Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa, located on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Or set sail on a Disney cruise for your special day.
Consider Your Guest Experience: Although this special day is undoubtedly about you, it is also important to consider the experience for your guests. Regardless of what Disney destination you choose, you will do so with the confidence of knowing that your guests will also be immersed in the patented Disney magic. Since your guests will likely be traveling to reach your wedding, it is a good idea to plan some group events outside of the actual vow exchange. Perhaps you plan a day for everyone to meet up in a designated theme park? Or maybe you plan a character meal meet and greet when all of your guests arrive onsite to the event? With Disney as your backdrop, there is no limit to the fun that you can have.
Disney Dining: One of the perks of a Disney wedding is all the catering choices that you have available at your fingertips. Disney offers a delicious cornucopia of food and drink options, allowing you to customize all of the elements of your wedding dining to your exact tastes. You can go with a traditional sit-down dinner or you can provide a buffet of treats to keep it more casual. If you are taking advantage of all of the global offerings at Epcot, it is easy to incorporate the various ethnic foods into your celebration.
Disney makes it easy to choose the food for all of the events surrounding your wedding. With specialized tasting events, you can try out all of the options so that you can make an informed decision. One area that Disney really shines is with its cake selections. Go with a traditional tiered cake or make it funky with a cupcake buffet. There is no limit to what the Disney bakers can deliver to you. This is a great part of your wedding to be creative and think outside of the box.
