Picking Your Disney Themed Wedding Dress

You are planning the wedding of your dreams and one of the most important things to do is to find the right dress out of all the Disney themed wedding dresses out there. After choosing your style and which princess you want to channel during your wedding you can find a lot of choice for your Disney fairytale wedding dress but it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you.

Disney Princess Wedding Dresses
If you like the classic princesses like Aurora and Snow White you will want to go for the always sophisticated ball gown. Big skirts in a lovely satin fabric with or without ruffles always make for a beautiful princess-like look.

If you want to channel Belle from the Beauty and Beast you can even get your ball gown in a champagne color-have a look at this Ball Gown Strapless Scallop Edge Neckline Beaded Lace Bodice with Satin Waistband

Do you identify more with the latest Disney princesses and think that the whole classic thing is simply not for you? You can definitely get a wedding dress that channels Ariel, Jasmine and Tiana. Although Ariel was wearing a great big gown when she got married to Eric it's easy to see that her personality called for something a little bit more novel and spontaneous. Make your beautiful dress channel the one that Ariel was wearing when she got out of the ocean with this beautiful empire waist ruffled summer dress. (even though colors may be different!)

 Empire Waist Ruffled Summer Dress

If you want to get inspired by Jasmine for a Disney wedding dress consider something original and spunky. Something more adventurous, like perhaps a wedding gown with sleeves, might give you that edge that is so characteristic of this independent Disney princess. This particular Disney themed wedding dress is very stylish and classical while still holding close to its heart the things that make Jasmine so special.

 Or you may want to be very different and go for something in a  dark color and with a Hollywood glamour

For a Tiana inspired pick in Disney themed wedding dresses consider a backless Ball Gown Style that is very attention catching and channels that Southern Belle charm.

Taffeta Spaghetti Straps Backless Ball Gown
You may also want to search Sears for hot online wedding dress options.  Dresses like this elegant white Tulle beaded bodice wedding dress WD0253  are good value.  The one below at time of writing is not, BUT note that most of the princess-style Wedding dresses ship internationally so if you live outside the States just check on individual availability.


For the Budget Conscious:Alfred Angelo Disney Princess Wedding Dresses on Ebay

If you are on a budget you can still get some pretty fine dresses like the Alfred Angelo Disney Collection .  The last time I looked there was also a Princess Tiana wedding dress available.  So it would pay to also hunt around there

The right Disney wedding dress is out there for you to make your Disney themed wedding very special.

Disney Themed Wedding Invitations

When you are planning your big day around the Walt Disney theme you want your wedding invitations to be on theme.  Fortunately there is a great company that does this so don't order Wedding Invitations before checking  They have a great selection of stationery to meet your needs.

For example there are invitations you could use the following for your Bridal Shower if you have a Mickey or Minnie or Cinderella-type theme.  I like the following ones:

Dream Come True
Dream Come True
This is Dream Come True which show Cinderella © and Prince Charming within a heart surrounded by stars.  The design is printed in the same ink color as what you have chosen for your wording.  It folds into four and the invitation and enclosure cards have a feathered edge.

Another one that would be good  is Beautiful Carriage Ride, which you can see below,

Every girl loves the idea or riding in a fairytale carriage ride! This charming invitation has pearlized design of carriage and on last panel of Magic Kingdom& copy;. Main wording printed in middle panel. Your names may be printed on front and mini-verse on last panel. Matching enclosure cards are available. 

Then the next one you should take a look at is called " Mouse Love" which I think is really cute

Mouse Love

 The invitation has a pearlized Mickey and Minnie Mouse© design dancing and a floral border. Your names can be printed at bottom. Matching enclosure cards are available. 

Then you have Pink Fairytale which are a style of Disney themed wedding invitations which have a pink pearlized Cinderella and Magic Kingdom ©(copyrighted terms) theme on pink paper. Your names may be printed at the top which will show when closed. Matching enclosure cards are available.

Disney Grand Floridian Wedding

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is located just next door to Disney's Wedding Pavilion.  It opened in 1988 as Walt Disney World's 5th resort and is often considered the flagship resort.  It occupies 40 acres and has a Victorian styled theme.  Grand Floridian Resort is also close to the new spa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. There you can take advantage of all the latest spa therapies, treatments, and beauty regimens. Guys might want to have a massage, too! There is also an option to have a massage in the "couples" room the day after your event -- a nice bit of self-indulgent pampering!

Here's a video from someone who visited Disney Grand Floridian:

The Wonderful World Of Disney Themed Weddings

Walt Disney Themed Wedding Ideas:picture courtesy of Omster-com at
Have you been dreaming about having a magical Disney wedding? Disney themed

The Knot Wedding Shop

weddings are increasingly popular among couples that want their wedding to be an enchanting experience.

With a Disney wedding you will get a personal wedding specialist who will help you decide which of the Walt Disney themed wedding ideas suit you best (and your pocket,of course).  On your special day you want someone to help you get all the details perfect and that is what your wedding specialist promises.

There are four types of Disney themed wedding you can choose as packaged offers. These are the Wishes Wedding Collection,Couture Wedding Collection, the Escape Wedding Collection and the very latest one:the Memories Collection which is for more intimate weddings where you can invite four (or less) guests.

Attention all brides: Get a FREE gift with purchase at The Knot Wedding Shop! Get a Bride-to-Be Tote Bag with all orders $75 or more.

You can "do intimate" with the Escape Wedding Collection package as well- this wedding celebration is for about ten to eighteen guests. This themed wedding package includes wedding cake, nice floral displays for bride and groom, a champagne toast as well as a violinist and organ music.   Your ceremony can get underway at Disney's Wedding Gazebo, Disney's Wedding Pavilion or  other locations like the fabulous Polynesian Resort.

The Wishes Wedding Collection has a limit of 18 guests and is one of the more versatile wedding packages because it offers a variety of choices;a wedding specialist comes with it so you can clear your head and decide between what could be a bewildering range of options within the Walt Disney wedding packages, such as decor and what to do for the theme.

What's the difference between Disney's Escape and Wishes Weddings?
Escape Weddings are a complete wedding and honeymoon package that includes a ceremony, musician, flowers and a photography package. Escape Weddings can accommodate up to eighteen guests at the ceremony. Wishes Weddings are personalized events that allow the bride and groom to conceptualize their Walt Disney wedding ideas and design a wedding ceremony and private reception at various specific Walt Disney World Resort locations. Since these events are quite elaborate there is a minimum budget but you can set the budget and iron out other constraints with your Disney Wedding Specialist will work with you to establish a budget that meets all these requirements.

For the extremely sophisticated there is the Couture Wedding Collection package which you can plan individually with no less a weddings luminary than David Tutera: he will ensure an elegant and memorable day.

Other Disney themed weddings include getting married on one of their amazing  cruise ships, the Disney Magic, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and Disney Wonder, or on a secluded beach (there's also Castaway Cay, which is their own private island. A great way to have a special wedding ceremony!  If you don't opt for the Disney resort hotels like the splendiferous Disney Grand Floridian Resort ,you could opt to stay at adjacent Florida hotels after you have your event.

If you want your wedding to take on a different culture you could have an Epcot themed wedding within the International section of the Epcot park.  So there are many different Disney themed wedding centerpieces.

A Disney themed wedding, then, is quite flexible, and with the right planning can certainly make your wedding dreams come true.
