If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !

I'm new to the wedding board on here. My DF and I are seriously considering having a Swan and Dolphin wedding, and so I am trying to price out all the options. Does anyone know if there is an option for music that is not live music? Life Disney Fairy Tale Wedding CD played during your ceremony?

Welcome to the boards!! I think you really can't go wrong choosing a Swan wedding!!

Are you talking about just playing your cd player/ipod??

Here's an email I got from Karen when I asked her:
In regards to music, we do offer some pre-recorded music selections that we can bring along.
Depending on equipment availability on our end, we would either have a
CD player or iPod with some standard wedding selections. We charge a
$25 rental fee for this.

As another option, you are welcome to bring your own music and
equipment if you prefer. I recommend ensuring that the player you
bring has a battery backup, as power can be occasionally turned off at
the ceremony site. You will also need to identify someone in your
group to press "play" when needed.

Thanks!

Yes, that is what I meant. Has anyone here gone with that option or going with it? I wonder if that would take away from the ceremony at all.

I'm going with it. I didn't want to pay for a musician for a quick ceremony. Seemed like a waste of money to me... I don't feel like it will take away from the ceremony. The way I look at it, the money I'm saving by this option means something extra I get to do in Disney!

That makes sense. How long is the ceremony anyway? Like 20-30 minutes?

Ariel864 - Congratulations and welcome to the S/D board. We are a very small (but exclusive) group and always welcome new brides!!!!
Don't hesitate to ask any questions!!! What the girls on here don't know about S/D ceremonies isn't worth knowing!!!
Have you contacted JustMarry yet? If not I really recommend you do. Karen seems to handle all the S/D weddings/VRs and she is an angel (I know the girls will agree!!!). She will give you any information you need without putting you under any obligation!!!
Check out all our ramblings in our PJs (link to mine is in my signature)
You may find Carrie's podcast useful too. Here is the link (second edition down)

Happy planning and keep us all up to date with all your plans, whatever you decide!!

Thanks! I received my email package from Karen yesterday. Right now we are just trying to run through different options and figure out what is best with our budget. My DF and I met on a professional internship for Disney and so we'd love to get married there if it's possible.

I have a question about WDW park shoots for Swan brides. I was under the impression that you could have a park shoot in your gown as long as it wasn't MK, but when I talked to Karen today, she said she didn't believe that was the case, and that park shoots in wedding attire are strictly for DFTW brides.

Can anyone shed any light on this? TIA!

Hi, you are correct, anywhere but the MK. It is also done before or after the park hours. No wedding attire is allowed in the parks durring the open hours. You can send an email off to wdw.disney.photography@disney.com for the right information and cost.
