subscribing! No I’ve not had one, (I’m not even married yet and we haven’t made plans that far ahead) but I do know that the Disney wedding is nothing short of SPECTACULAR, they had a special on it on Food Tv, I think it was unwrapped on Disney World and they said exactly what happens and stuff they give you a BEAUTIFUL cake! good luck I’ll be very interested in this thread!

Congratulations!!! I too saw Disney Weddings on TV and I loved the little individual castle cakes you can give to each guest. I thought this was really special since you normally just get a regular slice of wedding cake.

Don’t have any personal experience but I will dive in anyway. :laugh:

First off here is a link to the official wedding site for Disney resorts.

Disney Weddings > Gateway

If you do not know it, Disney has a wedding Pavillion located between the Poly and the Grand Floridian.

According to my cursory glance at the website they offer a small wedding option there. You could then go over to the Grand Floridian for additional pictures. It seems like almost every time we stop by the GF in the afternoon, we see wedding parties being escorted around for pictures.

From what I have seen of the Wedding Gazebo at the Yacht Club, I think it would be a nice choice.

If you want to go the opposite way, the Polynesion Resort would be nice. I am not positive where Sunset Point is located, but I think the lush tropical theming would be nice.

BTW, congrats

Wow. A Disney wedding? Congratulations!
I too have seen the brides in the GF lobby. I can’t imagine a more beautiful place to have pictures taken.

Welcome to MB! I know that there are a few here at MB that have married at WDW. The one I remember reading about last year was Mickey McFizzle. Her TR made me dream of a WDW wedding myself. :happy: See the link below:

I got married at Disney last year. It was absolutely amazing, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Feel free to ask me any questions!

We had our wedding at the Boardwalk - Ceremony at Seabreeze Point and Reception at Boardwalk Hotel.

Once you get the ball rolling with them, they will guide you every step of the way. There are a few different ways to do a Disney wedding for different budget levels, so definitely look on their website to get an idea before you call.

They are really creative - you would not be disappointed! They were everything we could have asked for and then some :slight_smile:

We were looking into a vow renewal for our ten year wedding anniversary trip next month but none of our relatives could make it so that takes a little of the fun out of it. We are planning ahead for maybe our 15th or 20th anniversary.


#9

You MUST read MickeyMcFizzle’s wedding TR. IT WAS AWESOME!!!

I would LOVE to do a 15 year vow renewal there…would certainly be a DREAM COME TRUE!


#10

When it comes to Disney Weddings always listen to McFizz! There was also another member on here named Tragic, she had a Disney wedding as well but I haven’t seen her around in awhile. But either one of those ladies are a great resource.


#11

oh wow thanks for everyone’s advice/help. it’s so nice to like talk to other people who get super excited over stuff like this and dont find my whole dream a bit odd (as especially his family does, haha).

ok so im definitely going to go to all the links given asap!

The nice thing about Disney Weddings is that you don’t have to have big wedding if that isn’t what you want.:happy:


#14

we are curious about the cost? and i know that Elizabeth will want to get married in front of Cinderellas castle so yeah lol. her high class tastes are going to kill me one day i know it, but i’ll die happy!


#15

i had to post a bit of an update, mainly because no one but a disney fan would appreciate this…
…i feel like this wedding may be closer than i think and while i originally didn’t think he was 100% on board, my boyfriend caught me off-guard yesterday and started asking me about an engagement ring. so he goes on to ask about the cut of the stone and i really dont know the names of the cuts that well and i KNOW he has no idea… so he asks “well, what i guess i’m saying is…do you want the ring in the shape of mickey’s head when i get it?”
lol, that is too too priceless.

ps. thanks for all the posts/messages helping me with this wedding again =)


#16

Thats great news…tell him you want it to look like this :smile:


#17

ahhhhhhhh!!! A diamond in the shape of Mickey’s head??? OMG I love your boyfriend!!! (Well, you know… :laugh:) Sounds like Prince Charming…

So, what better place to tie the knot than WDW? DO IT!!! I’ll confess… I’m only 16, but I’ve been planning my dream Disney wedding since I was like 14… I’ve ordered two of the free dvds, now. :blush: There’s so many options… I don’t know how people choose! However, budget is probably a key deciding factor, considering that the prices are a bit outrageous. But if Daddy’s paying, spend, spend, spend! jk…

Also, an alternative, but probably not much of a price cut would be to have your wedding in Celebration, FL at the Celebration Hotel. Still… hard to beat the magic of Disney.

I didn’t get married there because my in-laws squashed it and refused to come if I did it.:crying::angry:
But I did have my honeymoon there! We stayed at the Grand Floridian in the honeymoon suite section. That is my suggestion. Stay there in that section! You have a personal view of Cinderella’s Castle and the fireworks from your balcony!:wub: It’s also set apart from the rest of the rooms. It’s on the second floor but you have a special way to get to the wing. That way you don’t have noise and other distractions interfering with your stay. It was GREAT! I can’t wait to stay there again with my DH some day.
Also when I was planning to have my wedding there, we got the wedding video which can help answer questions. Just call Disney and ask for it, it’s free just like the regular planning video they send you.
Plus you can have your personal wedding planner and they will help you choose what’s best for your wants and needs. You will love every step of the way.
:pirate:My advise don’t let others change your plans. I still regret it! My wedding wasn’t anything like I always wanted or hoped for. Other than us getting married and my dress. Not even the bridesmaid dresses and matron of honor. Do what’s right for you and your fiance!

I’m getting married there in a couple of weeks… At the Disney Wedding Pavilion and then my reception is at Yachtsman Steakhouse. Can’t wait I’m so excited!!

Even my ring wasn’t choosen by us! (not that this part bothered me so much but…)He promised to get me what I wanted later, I think I found it.:wub:
