    • Wedding: September 2009

    First off I worked at Disney for 9 year and a lot of my friends have had Disney weddings. The one I enjoyed the most was my friend that had Disney touches here and there not a full on kids birthday party. To set the tone they included a simple Disney graphic in their invitations and used Disney stamps. I say go for it but don’t over do it.

    It is your day, and ultimately you and your FI should do whatever you want.  But try to keep in mind the fact that certain things like wedding stationary are keepsakes, and you will have it forever.  You don’t want to look at it in 20 years and say, "What the %$% was I thinking and why didn’t anyone tell me how silly this was!"  Some couples might choose something cute for their stationary and will later regret it.  But others will choose something nontraditional and always be glad that they chose to follow their hearts and created an unique wedding that truly reflects themselves.  If you are likely to be the latter, you should choose the stationary that you love and be proud of the fact that you are strong enough to choose something really unique and distinctive.

    I love Disney, but it seems a little much for a wedding invite. It kind of feels like a kid’s b-day invitation.

    Well, it’s your day and it’s whatever makes you happy.  I’ve got an idea for a compromise that might work for you.  Instead of making your graphic front and center, could you possibly put it on the back of the invite and inside the little heart write something like "Created by Your Name"?  That way you still get the graphic, but it’s not right there in your parents faces.

    I think that if you want to use a disney graphic, that you should do something a little more subtle for the invitation (an outline or something monochromatic). Or leave the graphic off the invitation, but use a sticker or stamp to seal the envelope.

    Oh, and I think your little avatar/icon that you use on this site would be more subtle and maybe a compromise?

    I’m not a fan of the solid Disney graphic as it is. But, I think it could BEAUTIFUL if you got someone to make a pen and ink drawing of it … almost like a mini sketch! maybe something like this?

    Similar to GBGal’s suggestion, could you do a more monochrome version of the graphic, to make it look more serious?

    Let me begin by I am not a huge Disney fan either.  I think it is over the top.  I would look for a compromise.  I like the idea of using your avatar.  I am sure your invites will be beautiful and express who you are.  Good luck!

    I say do what you want, but one suggestion.  Make sure you have the rights to have the image printed.  As the Lady & the Tramp is a copyrighted/trademarked image.

    Good luck!
