@Pele:  I think it could be really cute, especially if there are children in attendence- watching children be delighted is part of what makes Disney so magical even for adults.

If it’s entirely adults, it could be a little strange.

honestly, as a guest I would think it’s a bit strange. As an adult I wouldn’t enjoy it at all and would feel uncomfortable if she tried to talk to me or get me to go up in a photo booth. I don’t think entertainment is required at a wedding, even if there is no dancing. I would enjoy just mingling and talking with other guests.

As a guest without kids, I’d feel pretty awkward.

@Pele:  I would find it very strange and childish, where as I think you are aiming more for childlike wonder.  The only exception would be if your guest list had a very large number (like more than 30%) of children under 10.

@Pele:  I love, love Alice in Wonderland but wouldn’t love the actors. I think the whimsical decor involving tea pots and things is fabulous, though.

@Pele:  I have to admit I don’t get it. If she was actually doing anything, that would be a whole other story. But I was always waiting for the cool entertainment she does? You know, as in magician, juggler, whatever… There is a lot of stud that could be cool for adults. But a dressed character and or a rabbit would make me wonder what the heck got into you during the wedding planning 😉 no offense, OP, I would think further of more adult appropriate entertainment.

@Pele:  I don’t like it and as a guest would fine it awkward and weird. 

Magic? Awesome! Photo booth? Cool! Adult dressed as Alice looking in tea-pots for a rabbit and talking to me and trying to get me into the photo-booth? Yeah… Not so much. Sorry.

@Pele:  I am an adult and I enjoy disney parks but this I would find strange. Itis a wedding not a theatre production. A guest is there to see you get married and to celebrate that. They don’t need this sort of stuff to enjoy the event.

Using an animal as a prop for your wedding is cruel no matter how you spin it.

@Pele:  Yeah, sorry. The live rabbit as a wedding prop bothers me.

Yeah no thanks. I love Disney, but Disney stuff needs to stay well in Disney or for little children’s parties not an adult wedding receptions

As a Disney birthday party princess myself, perhaps I can weigh in from the other side? While I honestly think it’s a cute idea, and I would love it as a guest, it can be awkward for someone who is used to doing birthday parties with lots of little kids to come into a mostly-adult event and try and interract with people.

Keep in mind that while they are probably a professional and can act the part in any situation their job demands, it’s a lot more fun and less awkward to go into a room/house where a birthday party for a child who absolutely LOVES you is going on, and all their friends ooh and aah and want to show you all the party decorations with your face on them. I’ve been to a few events with only a few young children, some of them who weren’t interested in me, and I usually just end up going around and acting like the character while adults actively avoid me.

So, there’s the answer from that perspective, but in the end, you should obviously do whatever makes you and your groom happy!

I like the themed reception idea, but I think having some photobooth props like a white stuffed rabbit and a cardboard Alice cutout would be a better way to incorporate it.  I don’t like the real bunny idea at all.  A mad-hatter cake would be awesome!  Drink me/eat me foods, even better.

Strange, awkward and unnecessary. Please don’t.
