Disney Fairy Tale Weddings: Can It Be?
Did you grow up, dreaming of becoming a real-life princess or prince? Or maybe you always wondered about having a fairy tale wedding. If that sounds like you, you might be happy to know that Disney weddings have been a part of reality for some time already! Disney weddings can be held at Walt Disney World, Disneyland California, Hong Kong Disneyland, the Disney Cruise Line, and in Hawaii. However, as the details for each location can be very different, this post will focus on Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings in Disneyland California, the first Disneyland that was created!
Can We Really Be Wed in Disneyland?
The answer to that is, yes!
In the California Disneyland Resort, you have a great number of choices. When it comes to locations, a few include being wed near Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, in Disneyland Hotel’s Wedding Gazebo in the Rose Court Garden, and the Wedding Garden at the Grand Californian Hotel. You also have beautiful settings to choose from when it comes to bridal showers and rehearsal dinners, including Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, Downtown Disney, or a party with the Mad Hatter. The bride can even choose to arrive from Disneyland’s Main Street in Cinderella’s Coach, with a regal white horse and footmen to follow. To top that up, you can even choose to end your day with fireworks or grand parades.
What If I Want an Intimate Wedding?
At Disneyland, you can choose to have small, intimate, romantic weddings with only a few people. On the other hand, they also offers to help you plan your weddings for up to 500, or even 1,000 guests at the Resort’s hotels. You can also choose to have an intimate wedding, but a grand reception afterwards.
The great part about having a Disneyland Wedding is that there are so many options that you are presented with to choose from. There is no reason for you to feel limited at any point of the process. After all, Disneyland is where your dreams come true.
What Would My Disneyland Wedding Look Like?
There are many ways that you can go about designing your Disneyland Wedding. You will be working in close coordination with a Disney Wedding Planner, who will do his or her best to fulfill your wishes. In the past, couples have had weddings that were specifically designed to bring fairy tales to life. For example, recently couples have had their weddings themed after The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.
If you are into Disney’s princess dresses, there is also a line of Disney Wedding Gowns from Alfred Angelo, from which the 2015 line was just released. You might have heard of this already, as this is also where a popular Frozen inspired, Elsa themed wedding gown, comes from.
How Do I Go About Planning a Disneyland Wedding?
Start out by arranging a planning session with a Disney Wedding Planner at least 12 months before your wedding. Maintaining communication with your planner is extremely important, as he or she will be the person that you can correspond with to plan out your entire wedding. The planner will also be the one that will lead you throughout the process and help you realize your dreams in a realistic manner.
Remember, while your Disney Wedding Planner can become a fairy godmother to you, it takes time to make dreams come true. To make sure that you and your loved one gets everything that you want as a couple, start planning as soon as possible and do not procrastinate.
And a Happily Ever After!
For many of you, hearing that Disney also holds weddings may seem like everything you have ever wanted. A fairy tale wedding is finally within your reach rather than gathering dust in your imagination. For those of you that are concerned about budget, you can also consider having only your bridal shower or reception in Disneyland, which your Disney Wedding Planner will also be happy to help you with.
No matter what, be true to what your heart desires as you plan for the biggest day of your life. We wish you a happily ever after!
