Ever dreamt of a fairytale wedding? The lovely lady meets her Prince Charming and they live happily ever after, it is the dream occasion and marks the beginning of a beautiful life together.
With so many wedding planning websites and magazines, amazing suppliers and Pinterest giving more inspiration than ever before – the fairytale day is more than a possibility; you don’t just need a princess dress to feel the part, but a theme, transport, décor and food. Make the film come to life!
Our top five favourite Disney weddings to inspire you:
The Little Mermaid
After a turbulent time together, Ariel finally gets to marry Eric in a ceremony that sees her leave the sea and her father. Love isn’t simple, it is tough, requires compromise, but is worth fighting for – your vows are more than just words on paper, they are your motto to live by.
“Then I guess there is just one problem left – how much I am going to miss her.”
Hopefully you don’t have an evil sea witch trying to marry your partner! You could focus on subtle detailing such as turquoise décor, flowers, cutlery etc, shell table decoration and a stunning fish tail dress, or go for a full sea theme with seaweed decoration, fish tanks and blue lighting.
Aladdin and Jasmine
Jasmine ran away from her luxury Princess life as she didn’t like the restrictions, after a struggle she married the man she loved. When two people fall in love, their background doesn’t matter; class, money, jobs, family become irrelevant if you love the person for who they really are.
“I never thought this day would come; now I am afraid it has come all too soon.”
Oozing Arabian night’s glamour and beauty, this is a wedding everyone will envy. Even minus Genie and Abu, your wedding day can still be flawless with a pink, burgundy, gold and purple colour palette. A beautiful jewelled gown and lily white flowers will help create that beautiful ‘wow’ moment you have been waiting for.
Cinderella and Prince Charming
The course of true love did never run smooth – it couldn’t be more true for poor Cinders. Family on your or your partners’ side that you don’t get on with? Don’t let them get in the way of true love, whether they don’t approve of your partner or you just don’t want them at your wedding, if it won’t negatively impact anyone you love then do whatever makes you happy.
“So this is love. So this is what makes life divine. I’m all aglow…”
The ultimate aspirational princess wedding. Find the princess dress that everyone dreams of, add pops of baby blue, cream and glitter throughout your venue, décor and food. If you can, arrive in a beautiful carriage and if the venue has a staircase use this as a great photo opportunity.
Robin Hood and Maid Marian
Childhood sweethearts that go through their share of drama, Robin goes from an outlaw to an in-law of the King. You can’t help who you fall in love with, if you, and even better your family and friends, are happy for you to make a life together, then nothing else matters.
“I have never been so happy.”
For the ultimate Ye Olde English themed wedding, Robin Hood is the one. Whether in the garden, a marquee or barn decorated with bunting, vintage décor, cupcakes, lots of green and why not throw a bow and arrow competition? If you are the more outdoorsy type, this rustic style is ideal for you.
The Princess and The Frog
Prince Naveen judges Tiana too quickly, after a little misunderstanding they have a second chance at an adventure (as frogs) that wouldn’t be the same without each other. Good things come to those who wait and experience life together.
“My dream? My dream wouldn’t be complete… without you in it.”
Think mystical and magical; green, brown and white would be the colour palette. This would also suit an outdoor style wedding, whether actually held in a forest or in a cleverly decorated venue. The décor is the focal point for this theme, with fairy lights in jars, wooden benches, flowers, trees and beautiful lily pads making for an extremely unique wedding.
Disney teaches us what is important about weddings – love, whether between the couple, family, friends and animals alike. No Disney or real life wedding is complete without it, aim to always remember what is at the heart of your big day and don’t get swept away by minor details, budget, arguments or disagreements.
