A Magical Disney Wedding Fairytale
I have always been a Walt Disney fan, it may be something about that magical feeling you get when you walk through the gates that instantly brings you back to childhood or maybe that amazing feeling that just makes you have to smile. It is a place that is truly filled with magical moments that make amazing memories. I would imagine that this is just a few of the many reasons hundreds of couples rush there to get married each year.
However, before I get to ahead of myself, let me just say that the greatest thing about staying at Disney property is the service. No matter which hotel you choose to stay in, and no matter what price point you can afford, each property makes you feel like a VIP guest. This combined with the magical setting are just more reasons why Disney makes a great destination wedding location.
I was lucky enough to interview a lovely new bride who was willing to share her magical Disney experience with us! Jessica Lubetsky got married back in March at Disney. Her and her husband, with about 80 of their closest friends and family, they tied the knot in one of the most amazing places on earth.
I asked this new bride to describe in one word her overall Disney Wedding experience, and all she could say was; incredible.
She then went on to describe their overall planning & wedding experience for us. “They always tell you that Disney weddings are magical – but seriously, I swear it was. Our wedding planner went above and beyond and when we saw everything in person it was all exceeded our expectations (which were very high!).”
The bride went on to describe for me her experience, which started a few months prior to the wedding. She explained that planning didn’t happen until they went to Disney in late October 2008. They had a 2-3 hour session with their wedding planner and in preparation for this meeting, Jessica searched the internet and bridal magazines for photos of things she liked.
She then printed photos of place settings, centerpieces, ambiance visuals, favors and even printed photos of the dress she had picked so everyone would be on the same page. She even printed what she assumed the bridal party attire & colors would be and then made a small 3×5 album out of these photos.
She also printed index cards to put into the album with information about her and her fiance, how they met, how her fiance proposed, words that described the photos and what they liked and what they didn’t.
She explained that she was explicit about the flowers and colors she did not want to see and even made 3 copies of this little flip book; one for the wedding planner, and 2 for the florists. Her amazement looking back was to see how incredible it was to see how “spot on” the actual wedding was to what they asked for.
They were then moved to the American Adventure Pavilion for the reception after cocktail hour. As their favors, there was a candy buffet set up for guests to indulge (in wedding colors of course). The bride laughs thinking about the great photos of guests practically wrestling each other to get at the candy – just hysterical. They served 2 courses for the sit down dinner and then had stations around the room for guests to enjoy as much as they like.
Perfect weather, perfect day, perfect ending. Better than the fireworks we could have opted for. The brides mom plans to send a photo of the couple watching the shuttle to NASA to be signed by the astronauts who were in the shuttle.
