Disney Details on Your Wedding Day…Pt 1


There’s no doubt that a couple’s wedding is the most magical day ever, but there’s no better way to make that day extra special by adding a little Disney pixie dust to it! Below, our listeners and readers share Disney details from their wedding day:

“My husband Jim and I were married on 4/30/16 at Safeco Field in Seattle, WA.  We are both huge Disney and baseball fans.  We were able to incorporate both into our magical day.  We had visible Disney items….along with a few Hidden Mickeys!  We also had Disney thank you notes and gift tags made for our gift bags.”

“There were several things that my husband Michael and I did to add a little Disney to our wedding ten years ago.

We had a wedding clad Mickey and Minnie snow globe by our wedding cake. Our first dance was to Aladdin’s A Whole New World. We took dancing lessons and had a dance choreographed for us. Leading up to the wedding we kept looking for the perfect song to represent us, and it came to me while we were in Mickey’s PhilharMagic and the song came on. At that moment, I knew that was going to be our song and told it to Michael, my then fiancee, once the film was over.

When the bridal party was announced in the ballroom, to the Cantina song from Star Wars. The bride and groom were announced to the theme from Buffy the Vampire Slayer by Nerf Herder. (Although Buffy had nothing to do with Disney, it was a show we loved, and the band got their name from Star Wars). When the waiters started serving the main course, the song Be Our Guest started playing.”

“My husband, Mark, and I incorporated a bunch of Disney details into our wedding!

Our sweetheart table was decorated with a Mr & Mrs sign in Disney font, along with bride and groom Mickey and Minnie ear hats that my sister-in-law got for us! Mark loves Toy Story, so I was excited for our cake topper…

Our DJ is a fellow Dis-nerd, and was sure to incorporate a lot of Disney music in our reception. As soon as dinner was announced as being served, he surprised us by playing Be Our Guest! He played a lot more Disney songs during dinner, and ended the night playing Louis Armstrong’s rendition of When You Wish Upon A Star, but not before making us don our mouse ears!

The morning after the ceremony, we went out to brunch, where Mark and I wore shirts one of my bridesmaids got for us. Mine said “My favorite Disney prince is my husband” and his said “My favorite Disney princess is my wife.”

They wore those shirts on their Disney honeymoon, of course, and Carol also received a beautiful Carousel of Progress necklace from Mark that she wears every day!

“When my wife Laura and I would talk about getting married, she always mentioned that she wanted to get married on the water. We threw ideas around about what venues in our state of Connecticut we would consider having the wedding and reception at.

Laura then brought up the idea of a destination wedding in Orlando since we both love Disney. I did some research and we both fell in love with the idea of having it both on the water and on Disney property at Fulton’s Crab House in Downtown Disney (now Paddlefish in Disney Springs) in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

We got married on May 15, in 2014. May 15 was the date Mickey and Minnie Mouse made their first public appearance to a test audience in 1928 in Plane Crazy. It was our first appearance in public as a married couple, so we thought it fit perfectly. We spent our honeymoon in Orlando and had an incredible time with family and friends.”
