Create Your Own Disney-inspired Wedding Theme
Many of us grew up watching Disney movies. They are an important part of our childhood. Besides famous cartoon characters like Minnie or Mickey Mouse, Disney never fails to inspire us with their Disney princess dreams as well as the touching movies for the grown-ups. Known for their constant creativity, Disney productions can become a great source of inspiration for your special wedding. What could be more special than making your Disney princess dreams come true? Bring your favorite childhood characters to the biggest day of your life? We have many suggestions for you to plan a Disney-inspired theme wedding.
Pick a movie for your theme
Let’s start with picking a favorite movie that can act as your main inspiration. Disney offers various options for you to choose from. If you like classical and classy wedding style, consider "Beauty and the Beast" or "Cinderella". Want to be adventurous? You can try to use Toy Story or Monster University as your wedding theme. Simple and romantic couples can be inspired by touching movies for grownups like Touch. If you can’t decide on one, it is absolutely ok to mix and match a few different movies together. However, it is important to stay consistent and have a clear main theme. That will help make the execution much easier.
Choose a suitable location
If you've always dreamed of a Disney-themed wedding, how about choosing Disneyland for your special day? This will be an opportunity for you and your guests to have fun and enjoy in the magic kingdom. Otherwise, you can also choose a location that suits your main theme. The coastal resorts in Nha Trang, Phu Quoc and Da Nang will be the best for the ocean-inspired wedding theme like the Little Mermaid. If you choose old villas in Da Lat or Hue, try the more elegant and luxurious styles such as Beauty and the Beast. You want to get married in your backyard garden? Alice in Wonderland would be a perfect fit.
Plan the decoration to match
Don't forget to incorporate the special Disney colors and ambience into your wedding decorations. One tip from the wedding planner is that you can try to recreate the special scenes from these movies on your special day. For example: if you have fallen in love with that beautiful scene from Tangled, do not forget to use lanterns in the wedding ceremony and reception. Besides the main decorative areas like the flower arch, you can also anchor your main theme by adding smaller details such as the table centerpieces or the seating map. Many brides have used a red rose theme inspired by "Beauty and the Beast" in their wedding decorations.
Match the stationeries
You can apply the main theme in all small little details of your wedding. It will help create a consistent Disney experience for you and your guests. From wedding invitations, wedding vows to thank-you gifts, you can anchor your Disney inspiration. Don’t forget to help your guests immerse themselves in the theme by creating a special dress code, which follows your movie selection. When it is possible, you should consider hosting special games and activities related to the main theme. It will not only entertain your guests but also makes the wedding more memorable.
Make good use of movie soundtrack
It cannot be a good Disney-inspired wedding if you miss out on the music. Disney has long been known for the movie soundtracks, which is a long collection of romantic and upbeat songs. You should build a Disney playlist for your special day. There are various options for you to consider. From the song when you walk down the aisle, the first dance to the reception, there are more than enough songs for you to use throughout the day. If you have time, pick your own playlist to reflect your love story. Too busy to pick every single song? No worry, there are a lot of ready made playlists on the internet for you. Whether you are using a DJ or a live band, you can make your Disney-inspired wedding more fun by their own soundtracks.
Wear a Disney-inspired wedding dress
Almost every little girl has that Disney princess dream and wants to be with the Prince Charming. Now that moment has come. It is time for you to show your characters in a Disney-inspired wedding dress. Whether you like the splendid princess style as Belle or the sexy Jasmine, your wedding gown should follow the wedding theme. Remember bold and vibrant color is an important part of any Disney movie. Instead of sticking with the traditional white and ivory color, challenge yourself to step out of the comfort zone and try different styles such as red, yellow, blue, etc... You can ask your best friends to join the force as well. It will be fun to cooperate with the bridesmaids and pick their dresses in the same theme. Wedding dress is only one part of it. Don’t forget your Cinderella's shoes, the gorgeous tiara and your sophisticated bridal gloves. Have you considered using Disney wedding rings as well? You can step up the game by order the custom-made wedding rings that fit the princess that you’re impersonating. There are a lot of options out there and most of them use both diamond and other precious gems.
