I think I've preplanned two different escape weddings and two or three wishes weddings by now... And now that I can REALLY start planning without feeling silly, I'm not sure what direction we're going yet...so more waiting.

The Disboards is not just a great resource for planning information, it's a great resource for fantasy inspiration, tiding you over while you wait and dream and for talking to like minded Disney lovers who love weddings and Disney!!!

Enjoy your dreaming, can't wait to hear about your plans!

Brooke
You're entirely right about the boards, i always thought i was alone out there with my love of disney! Its great having so many like minded people all in one place!

Eek i hope i havent jinxed anything Though last june after watching four weddings every morning at 10am (ha) we were already chatting about things like colour scheme and food so i already jinxed myself long ago haha!

Congratulations on your recent engagement! If/when you start a pj i will most definitely be following you on your journey!

I always accepted i would be an escape bride due to a low guest count, though i'd love to be wishes just for all the planning!! I'll probably just have to upgrade a lot of things and add on my own little extras.
My mistake, i had thought the f&b min was £125 pp and that we could make that if you combined dinner, dessert party and a bar! but i have no clue, trying not to look in too too much detail!!

I stalked these boards for a good two years before he finally proposed this past summer. Actually, after it happened and we kissed and I finished crying on him, I looked at him and said, "Disney?"
We are having an escape wedding next April. I also was so excited to start a PJ. It's pretty sad looking though because there's not a whole lot going on yet since we can't really book until the summer. I hope your proposal happens soon

I had a little peek at your PJ, proposal story made me laugh, nice reaction haha I shall be posting there in a second!

I'm not holding my breath for soon, I think he plans to save this summer and then wait until Sept Oct, i got a "Do you think having a proposal and wedding on the same/similar date would be cute?" Bearing in mind he said October wedding i think i've a 8/9 month wait in store ! Ah well, more time to day dream

So i was wondering if anyone would like to help me with a few questions i have;

1) We went to Jiko for our first anniversary and its a given that we would have our wedding meal there (just ADR not book a room out)..But i have my heart set on the Wedding Pavillion AND an Epcot dessert party (unless people don't come and we have few enough of us to book the grand 1)...Do you think that this is just not going to work with all the different locations? and if it were to work what time ceremony?

2) When we talk about it we think a 2015 wedding, I am thinking October, but we have school teachers in the family and so it would have to be end of October in the school holidays- I worry that this would mean its colder? (i'm from the UK so most things feel warm ha) and more crowds because of halloween? Is there also free dining/deals that far through October usually?
I read somewhere that early march 2015 would actually be okay? but i'm skeptical.
February comes up a lot, but again i worry about the weather- we have some family members who probably wouldn't come without the heat as they aren't interested in the disney side of things, crazy !

3) Finally is there anyone else in the same boat as me? Crazily excited to get married to the love of their lives in the happiest place in the world in 2015 BEFORE the proposal? I feel a little mental haha

This was long..but fun, i think i will do my own pj when the time FINALLY comes to contact Disney!


Thankyou for reading
I am definitely in the same boat as you! I know I'll be getting a ring this year, which is why I went into this whole wedding frenzy. I'd actually like to know what other people think about having different locations. I want my ceremony at the Wedding Pavilion, the reception I'm still undecided, and the dessert party at Hollywood Studios. I was thinking April 2015 for my wedding. From looking online, the temperature seems to usually be high 85 and low 66 with 3.3 inches of rain for October.
Have you thought about if you're going to honeymoon in Disney as well?

Hey argh I know right, as soon as you know the ring is on its way it's like as you say, wedding frenzy!!

If you don't mind my asking, what's made you want to go with the HS dessert party? I would've loved it if the seating wasn't so far back! With those silly lights vaguely in the way- I'm someone who gets there early and sits there for hours to get my fav seats ha.

Honeymoon wise, from a super brief conversation with the bf I think we'd have wedding day early on maybe day 2 (not incl landing day) then 4 days disney- we wouldnt use our AP until the day after wedding- 1 universal then off to Bahamas as its near for a 6/7 day beach thing, maybe mexico or even Hawaii if budget allows (I doubt it!)
Then the next year come back a bit earlier to use AP and do a long disney holiday with universal and Busch gardens etc for our anniversary
Excited just thinking about it!!

Where did you have in mind for your reception, any ideas?

Any idea when the ring will come?

It's really far back? I didn't know that. I just really love Fantasmic and would like for my family and friends to see it. But maybe we will just go to the park and head there early to get good seats.
Hawaii sounds nice, I'm personally not a fan of flying though haha.
I was thinking about having the reception at an Epcot venue but then I think about having it at one of the hotels. I don't know, very indecisive about that one.
I'm just going to have my honeymoon in Disney. Then go to both Universal parks. I figure we will already be there, and I love going there so might as well make it easy for us.
I know the ring will be coming soon, like within the next couple months. My boyfriend is trying to think of a good way to do it, but he's not the most creative person in the world haha so it takes him some thinking.

Aww that must be very exciting for you have you been together a long time?

My main thoughts behind the honeymoon partially out of disney is that it means I get to go two years in a row! (My bf and I have a once every three years agreement, but with still active AP's he's overlook that rule just once ha)

This is a link for fantasmic http://disneytravelbabble.com/disney...tos/fantasmic/ it has photos of the dp area and views of the 'stage'

Haha fair enough, I fly far too much, everything worth doing seems to be over the Atlantic !- so after that looooong flight popping over to Bahamas or wherever doesn't feel so bad!

Oh and do you have this? http://www.passporter.com/weddings.asp most people on the board would probably agree that it's worth the money could help you on reception venue ideas and loads more!!

Hello there,

I am in exactly the same position as you. I have been in a relationship for 4 1/2 years. We went to Florida last June and ever since then my partner (not me) is eager to marry at Disney. He keeps making suggestions about getting married when we go in September but realistically it won't be until 2015 or later that we do marry.
Difficulty is being in the UK trying to plan a wedding. I've been searching and searching and looks like Disney weddings do their best for UK clients. A friend got married in Miami last October & she found it incredibly hard to organise it without a wedding planner as they all have them in the USA.
I would love to have the ceremony in the Wedding Pavilion but only want my close family & friends (those who can afford flights) to be there. Only my mother from both our families have ever been to disney world so I would love them to experience the full disney experience as well as our wedding.
I am hoping that when we go in September we can get some details about holding our wedding there and the accommodation for our families.
It all looks so exciting. I imagine when you are finally a bride-to-be it all becomes stressful lol.
Disney love xxx

We've been together for 3 years. It went by very quickly haha.

That's a good idea. I wish I could go to Disney every year. It's such a fun place to go.

Thanks for the website! I'm glad I got to see that, it really helped me out.

It's funny I actually just bought that book last night. Haven't had a chance to actually read it yet, but it seems really informative.

I wish I enjoyed flying. It would make things so much easier for when I want to travel, which I do eventually.

Ha you're probably right about it becoming stressful, better bask in the pre bride-to-be daydreaming bliss !

Aw, do you not want to marry there, or are you just not as keen as he is? I think my bf really enjoyed our trip there and so yes he would like to be married there, but us getting married there will be because its what i want and he's happy to go along with it!

Yeah from what i've seen from looking at UK bride trip reports is that Disney really do look after you, and Escape package especially seems almost specifically aimed at the overseas brides!

I too only want close family at the wedding, from watching far too much wedding tv over the past year i've been hugely put off a big affair with second cousins etc ha.

I'm jealous of your September trip! I want to go back nowww. Do you worry about close family not being willing to pay for the flights and trip? thats my only worry...

It really would make it easier, im one of those people who if you ask me if id rather teleport from my house to my holiday or do the whole airport and flight thing id go for airport and flight though maybe only an hour flying and teleport the rest of the journey haha.

No worries

Hi Fairytale Belle I'm so excited to find someone in a simillar sitation to me. I am already engaged but we are from england too and are looking to get married at the wedding pavillion in Nov 2015 . I know it's still a long way off but i'm really confused at the moment about a 'reception' meal and then something to do in the evening. Currently I am thinking of having a regularly booked dinner at the Grand Floridian cafe (so everyone can afford it) and then maybe on the Grand 1 yacht for the fireworks. Really hopping to keep it cheap and cheerfull tho, the thought of the cost of it all is scaring me already x

Ah i'm sorry Laurenvic, I didn't see that you had posted !

It's cool to meet someone else from england with the same date (roughly!) in mind, im envious that you already have your ring though, i want mine ! haha

I'd love the Grand 1 also..but at the same time going into the parks in your wedding dress would be amazing for the illuminations dessert party.

So would you have your guests pay for their own meals? (The Grand Floridian Cafe bit)

Were you thinking Escape or Wishes? I mean i keep changing my preference- Wishes is cool as there is more planning to do (ha) and you can get things started with disney earlier, but if i'm honest with you, i don't really have any interest in doing a reception..Just a nice dinner followed by a dessert party or something and then back in England throw a 'cheap' reception- Not quite sure how to achieve this yet ha, food and alcohol alone is not cheap! x

It's fine I'm just happy to finally be talking to someone on here. I've been a lurker for far too long haha.
Don't worry you'll get your ring soon enough, then you'll be even more excited
Our aim is too have a good time without spending too much money so that is why the yacht appeals to us so much as it's cheaper than a desert party but still fancy haha
Yeah, as all our guests will be from the uk too they will most likely be on the dining plan so they all won't mind using one table service credit for our wedding meal. I would rather spend the money on something unusual such as the yacht instead of a meal. What about you, are you thinking of buying everyone their meals then?
I'm definietly thinking escape at the moment, wishes just seems like the cost can add up too quickly . I'm a bit worried about not being able to book any sooner than 8 months before but hopefully it will all work out well. We are having a at home reception too with just a small buffet i reckon, will we probably show a video of our wedding there too so it's more of an event
So do you reckon you will go with escape too in the end then? x

Did you get my message? I tried private messaging for the first time haha, i probably managed to mess it up !

Yeah i was really impressed with the price of the yacht, though i'm not sure but i think when reading through pjs i came across someone saying that you can only book the yacht 180 days out? I may be wrong, but if thats true thats so stressful, it would feel last minute- i'd have to have like a team of people ringing up right on the 180 day mark to get it!

I'm lucky in that my mum is paying for my wedding -as far as im aware ha- but i think that makes me even more money conscious, i don't want to waste her money! I plan on getting my family to do their Disney trip at the same time so that their flights and hotels etc aren't part of the wedding cost as such as they were going anyway!
Sorry got sidetracked! Yes on the wedding day we would pay for everything, although if people were on dining plan as you say i'm sure they would use credits (genius i didn't think of that!)

Would you wear your wedding dress at your home reception?

The 8 months bit is horrible, i wouldnt like to expect people to book hotels and flights for a date that isn't even set...i guess i'm willing to be flexible with the time and maybe date but i HAVE to have the wedding pavilion

Yeah escape, i don't think i'd have a choice really, can't see many people coming, especially not from my boyfriends side of the family, that worries me is everyone in your families liking the idea of a disney wedding?x

I'm doing an escape wedding and I am not really worried about the eight month mark. It is annoying to have to wait, but I am just telling people what week we are going to be married. With all the available time slots, I know I will get a day within the week we are there and I don't have my heart set on a particular date. The plus side of the escape for me is the guest limit. I had a lot of family bash our decision to go to Disney and flat out say they refuse to come. We decided then on escape and we refuse to change just because unsupportive people are changing their minds and saying how unique and fun our wedding sounds and that they would love to come.
