Depends on how the music is being played. Are we talking a nice orchestra instrumental or straight off the sound track?

Otherwise, it does not sound over the top.

I think the table cards put it too far for me.  A big dress and sparkles don’t seem weird, but having any straight cartoon-Disney would make it seem a little too birthday-party for me.

To me a theme is something that is ‘important’ or ‘special’ to you.  Your never going to please everyone at your wedding with what you choose so you may as well have what YOU think is nice. 

For some people having a ‘theme’ of any kind is OTT..for others it brings a part of who they are into their special day.  Go with what YOU love 🙂

Its a lot of Disney, but its hard to judge without knowing what else you have planned.  I could see it becoming either very little girl birthday, or elegant reception depending on the things you choose to go with the items you mentioned.  EX: If your table number is a sign with beautiful calligraphy that says “Beauty and the Beast” with a small graphic on it, and you have a nice white table cloth, flower centerpiece, place settings and no other disney on the table that would be gorgeous.  If you did the a big disney table number, a pink table cloth, a “disney” centerpice, etc, I would see Birthday party and not wedding.

Personally I think way over the top, but then again I am not a huge glitter/pink fan myself…

Personally, it’s a little much… I can go with the princess gown and pink bm dresses, but the glittery cake and table cards scream little girl’s party to me. I would go with a  more sophisticated princessy theme.

How many table numbers are you going to need?  I think “Snow White and Prince Charming” and “Beauty and the Beast” may work if it’s neat calligraphy and no images, but are you going to get into “Pocahantas and John Smith” or “Mulan and Shang”?  I don’t think there’s any good way to put some of those as table names at a fancy wedding.

Maybe instead of the princesses you can make your centerpieces with just items or symbols from the princesses. Like shells for ariel, glass slipper for cinderella, porcellin frog for Tiana and apples for snow white. That way it is there more as a symbol and shows some creativity.

I think as long as you keep the Disney subtle instead of screaming in your guests’ faces, then it can be classy and elegant. There is one bee on here who’s doing a Princess and the Frog themed wedding and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I can’t remember her name, unfortuantely. Search this site for some inspiration!

One of my friends and her fiance are obsessed with all things Disney. They go to Disneyland at least once a month, and they want to have all their bridesmaids and groomsmen dressed as Disney couples. If you love the Disney theme and it reflects the two of you as a couple, go for it!

If you are talking about the same CD I have heard, like Disney Wedding’s or something, where it is all orchestral music from Disney, we would be best friends if I came to your wedding. Growing up doesn’t mean you have to get stuffy! I think if people can have Mario, or pictures of themselves as table numbers without being called immature or vain, rock those disney couples! I think there is potential for it to be a little childish if done wrong, but it sounds like you are not going overboard with it. And plus, on things that won’t mean uncomfortable guests, then it should totally be what you want, and what reflects you. Who cares what a bunch of random people on the internet think? If YOU and your Fiance love it, rock it!
