How To Add A Touch Of Disney To Your Wedding

Disney Inspired Wedding

Many little girls dream of their wedding day their entire life. I dreamed of having a Disney wedding. In addition to marrying my best friend and starting our new life together, I saw our wedding as my chance to be a Disney princess for a day. There was so much planning to be done and so many ways to add a touch of Disney to our special day!

The Dress

My wedding dress was the first bit of Disney inspiration I knew had to be in our wedding. I knew I wanted a dress which reminded me of my favorite Disney princess, Belle. Luckily, there were several to choose from. The one I decided to pick had ruffles on the skirt similar to those on Belle’s ballgown. In addition to a beautiful dress, every Disney princess needs a tiara. So I went to Hobby Lobby and found a sparkling tiara to match my Disney princess wedding dress.

The Colors

Even the colors for our wedding had ties to Beauty & The Beast. We chose blue and yellow – colors worn by the Beast – and pink, another one of my favorite colors. Ever since I was little I knew I wanted blue at my wedding (for the University of Kentucky, of course), so it worked out well that both my husband and I love the color.

The Decor

The majority of the Disney inspired items at our wedding could be found at our reception. As seen in the photo above, the Bride & Groom’s table was decorated with a flower-filled carriage and two glass slippers. Another carriage and more glass slippers could be found on the gift table, along with a Cinderella Castle. The gift table was also decorated with blue glass beads, which of course I had to arrange a few of them into the shape of a hidden Mickey!

Each of the centerpieces on the guest tables also had a Disney theme. They were designed based on the enchanted rose from Beauty & The Beast. One yellow rose was displayed inside an upside down vase in the center of each table. The rose sat upon a mirror tile and was surrounded by yellow rose petals. These centerpieces are one of my favorite Disney touches from our fairytale wedding!

The Cakes

No wedding is complete without the cakes, and ours was no exception. For the traditional wedding cake, we chose a Mickey and Minnie figure by Lenox (affiliate link) as the cake topper. I had seen some wedding cakes with little dots on the icing and though they looked nice; however instead of just dots, I thought it would be fun to make those dots into hidden Mickeys! I love the way the cake turned out. It was beautiful and tasted delicious!

Mickey & Minnie Wedding Cake

For the groom’s cake, my husband wanted to continue the Disney theme. Since we both love music, he decided on a record cake. He designed the record’s label to have Cinderella Castle on it. Just like the traditional wedding cake, the groom’s cake turned out great! And if you noticed those two stacks of small plates in the photo’s background – yes, I did end up moving them to form a hidden Mickey with the cake. I just can’t resist making hidden Mickeys when I have the chance!

Our fairytale wedding inspired by Beauty & The Beast and Cinderella was a dream come true! I love all of the Disney touches which helped make our wedding day extra magical!
