You are a romantic bride that is looking to plan a Disney themed wedding without having to visit the Magic Kingdom. Well, you are in the right place! Today, we’ll show you how to plan a fairytale wedding Disney Style!

A Disney reception is the equivalent of a truly fun-filled fairytale wedding as Disney brings us a plethora of movies and characters to inspire ourselves with. And, guess what? It’s your wedding, so you can mix and match all the characters you want to create your very own fairytale wedding Disney style!!!!

How to plan a Disney Themed Wedding

What is spectacular about a Disney-themed wedding is that the options are unlimited and their preparation becomes even more exciting the more you image the dreamlike event. But before the start of the magical experience, couples should decide on the following: invitation, decoration, wedding gowns, food and drinks,…and the list just goes on and on.

To plan a Disney themed wedding you have 3 options:

  1. Let Disney organize your wedding at the magic kingdom itself!
  2. Hire a wedding planner
  3. Do it yourself.

If you have the means and are a true blue Disney fan, indulge on a Disney themed wedding at the Magic Kingdom! I’m sure it will be a truly memorable event!!

If you want your wedding at a different location and are able to hire a wedding planner. Go ahead! You can still get inspired by these fairytale wedding ideas! It’s much easier for a wedding planner that you actually show them what you want rather than you describing it as a “I want it to be magical” 😉

For those who decide to go for the fashionable DIY Disney themed wedding, here are some ideas that will certainly inspire you to create the fairytale wedding of your dreams!

Fairytale Wedding invitations: Cinderella, Snow White, or Rapunzel?

Of course, there is nothing that says you cannot choose Fantasia instead of a Disney Princess (or Prince) and have a very Mickey Mouse wedding. What is spectacular about a Disney-themed wedding ceremony is that the options are unlimited and the preparation becomes more exciting upon imagining the dreamlike event.

Disney-themed Wedding Ceremony at its Best: Wedding decor

The decoration must blend well with the Disney theme. For example, if it is Cinderella inspired, the reception may look like the grand ball where Cinderella danced with Prince Charming. The color scheme is also important because this can add more realism to the wedding theme. If you chose a Snow White inspired wedding, decorations may be based on the colors of Snow White’s dress such as red, yellow, and blue.

Pinks, blushes, nudes, and lots of sparkle and sequins constitute classic fairytale wedding colors. Add some hydrangeas and roses, nude sequined linens and gold chargers to your table decor for effect.

A fairytale wedding pairs up extremely well with vintage decor, and when it is vintage glam it is to die for! Get inspired by antiques, chandeliers and crystals. Add a touch of glamour to your dessert table by placing an old sofa near it for your guests to enjoy their sweets.

Wedding Gowns Fit for a Queen

Fairytale wedding dresses are really fun to choose. It all depends on what you choose: will you go for the Princess’ style of the color? Maybe both? Or will you go for a romantic gown fit for a queen? Ariel and Rapunzel wore mermaid and trumpet style wedding dresses. If you are traditional, you can always choose a white gown with a white fitted bodice and a full pick-up skirt just like the ones Belle, Aurora, or Sleeping Beauty wear. What is important is that you, as the main character, should be the fairest of them all.

    Hi Ashley,
    We don’t really know who is the printer but our best recommendation is to try Invitations by Dawn or Wedding Paper Divas. They can definitely help you with this (if they don’t have it already)
    Congratulations on your wedding!!!
