Disney Weddings: A Celebration

If you've read this blog for any length of time whatsoever, you know my complete love and obsession of all things Disney. I even started a separate blog to organize my Disney info, memories, and celebrations of how wonderful it is. (This post will be posted there also. I'm also going to post some really beautiful Disney portraits soon on that blog, so stay tuned!)

So you can imagine my complete excitement when several years ago it dawned on me that Disney must host weddings, honeymoons, and vow renewals.

Yes. Yes, they do.

And they are amazing. You choose from different packages, and it's just the most lovely website to browse.
You know, if I were ever going to get married again. And the only way THAT'S happening is in a vow renewal.
I know Kurt and I will do one (if not more) vow renewal(s) in the future. I don't know if we'll actually do a full shebang at Disney...or if we'll just "honeymoon." It's fun to dream!

Little-known trivia fact: I thoroughly researched and was thisclose to booking a Disney wedding for myself when Kurt and I got engaged. I decided against it only because of the time crunch and it would have to be super small (and I have a relatively large family that I wanted to be there). But yes, I went through a phase where I ordered the free wedding planning DVD and watched it daily. Simply because I loved seeing two of my favorite things in one: Disney and weddings.

Here I am visiting the Wedding Pavilion in the summer of 2005, about a year before I met Kurt. We were there for our family vacation and my family indulged me. It was amazing.

Even though I didn't end up having a Disney wedding per se, I want to dedicate a blog post to it. Because it's my blog. And I want to.

Of course my favorite location option is probably the Wedding Pavilion. Mainly because it's inside and I just know I'd probably be stressed in an outdoor situation. And it doesn't hurt that it has a gorgeous view of Cinderella Castle.

Of course I have to have the coach:
For the reception, the ultimate is in one of the theme parks themselves. However, on the website they're not showing the Magic Kingdom as an option. Hmph. If you're wanting indoors, obviously the Grand Floridian ballroom would be my pick. Come on, it's the Grand Floridian.


Disney also has a bridal gown collection from designer Kirstie Kelly. Each princess has several dresses in her collection, so here is one from each:


Sleeping Beauty (Aurora):

Snow White:



So there is my celebration of the marvelous Disney Wedding. I just love fairytales and Disney excellence. Have a magical day!

My wedding dress looks almost identical to Cinderella's, no lie!! Cinderella is my all time favorite princess and I knew I'd resemble her on my wedding day with my dress! If I could've gotten married at Disney, I totally would've! Great post! :)

Oh my goodness I am the exact same way! I love Disney and Weddings! I also ordered the Weddings DVD and watched it over and over. I had always dreamed of getting married there since i as a little girl and watched the Brides in the Grand Floridian! We decided against it for pretty much the same reasons as you, but what a truly magical way to begin your marriage! LOVE your post!

They've also just unveiled the new Disney Rings by Kirstie Kelly - each one with a princess designation, as well. =) They are beautiful, of course!
I think a Disney vow renewal would be very special! We have talked about it, but I refuse to even consider it until we are in a place financially where we can afford it. I would hate to be disappointed over something so wonderful. :o)
