Just wondering if there are others planning a Disney themed wedding of some sort (not necessarily through Disney Weddings). My Fiance & I are both big Disney fans. We especially like Mickey & Minnie things. So that is what we are going for (however not over the top & kid-ish….still classy). I was just curious as to what ideas others had (especially those planning Disney-themed weddings themselves).

I remember seeing a Disney wedding where the Disney portion was very hidden. There was a small Mickey head in each bouquet and centerpiece, and there were alot of stars. I think there was alot of baby’s breath, as it signified “when you wish upon a star”. A classy Disney wedding can totally be done!

My friend did a Disney themed wedding and it was really cute. She and the groom wore the Mickey/Minne bridal has and the wedding party all wore the mouse ears hats in different colors. The wedding favors were cookies in the shape of Mickey.

So far, we have come up with an idea for the cake that includes a Mickey & Minnie cake topper. Also, we want to play “Ever, Ever After” from the movie Enchanted. Probably as we walk back down the aisle. Still looking for some more ideas.
@SubmarinersBride: I really like the small Mickey head in the bouquets. Do you know where those can be bought or where they made?
@Treejewel19: I have thought about those ideas as well. I do like the bridal mouse ears. And I am considering getting the mouse ears personalized with their name for each in the bridal party. I know that might be a little kid-ish, but I think it would be fun. Or maybe make a centerpiece for the bridal table with the bridal mouse ears.
All my guests know me & accepts me as the Disney fanatic that I am. And my Fiance loves Disney too.

Our theme is based off a Disney movie. We’re doing a Princess and the Frog theme wedding.
Attire: My groom is wearing a tan color suit as a nod to Naveen (who wears a khaki suit in his human form). My wedding gown is a ball gown with some asymetrical layer design on the right side which is a nod to Tiana’s gown with the layers of petals she has.
Colors: Because the movie took place in New Orleans during Mardi Gras our wedding colors are Plum, Olive Green, and Yellow/Gold is our accent color (an elegant variation of the Mardi Gras Purple, Green, and Gold).
Venue: Our venue is a castle banquet hall (there wasn’t a castle in the movie, but it goes with the fairytale theme).
Center Pieces: I’m going to make our center pieces with floating water lilies in shallow bowls.
Guest book: I’m making the cover of our guest book look like a story book. I also have a framed lithograph of Tiana and Naveen at their wedding when they were frogs, I’m going to put that on the gift table.
Cake Topper: We’re using the miniature Tiana and Naveen figurines from the playset as our cake toppers
Favors: We’re giving our guests hand made frog shaped soap from an awesome crafter on Etsy!
Our theme will have a lot of subtle touches, but I think it’ll all come together beautifully. Disney themes can be done in a very elegant way, even though you’re using a cartoon theme We’re also taking our engagement photos at a resort that has a bourbon street/new orleans theme, and there’s a river boat near there too, where we’ll take engagement photos also.

We both work for Disney and he proposed at Disneyland, so we definitely want to incorporate some Disney but without being over-the-top about it.
You can find classic Disney songs performed by orchestras or reinterpreted in cool, classy, unexpected ways. Could be great background music for the cocktail hour, or even for a processional: http://www.amazon.com/Disneys-Fairy-Tale-Weddings/dp/B003O3TJRA/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1337293687&sr=8-3
Lots of super cute figurines you could use for a caketopper: http://www.amazon.com/Traditions-designed-Enesco-Wedding-Figurine/dp/B002C4EEPY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1337293898&sr=8-1
Some of my favorites if you’re into Mickey and Minnie especially:
