If anyone doing a Disneyland wedding has a made budget they wouldn't mind sharing, I'd love to take a look. My DF and I desperately want a Disneyland wedding, but we're not sure on the budget. The Escape wedding seems perfect, but I'd want a couple things extra!

Thanks in advance!

Hi! The Escape package is all-inclusive for $5000 and includes a lot of things already. What type of Extras are you considering? Some things, like Cinderella's Carriage, cannot be added to an Escape package. If you give me some ideas of what kind of Extras you are looking for, I will try to find prices for you.

D'you know what limits Disney puts on the type of flowers (or how many of them) in an Escape Bouquet before they charge you extra?

@MindyJoy--Thank you! I was just wondering about flower decorations and center pieces, and a photographer. My fiance and I are paying for this by ourselves and we'd like to stay as low budget as possible. I didn't know if it were possible to make my own center pieces, etc...

I am not really an Escape expert, but I believe you get a choice of a couple different bouquets, and you can pick the colors. I'm not sure what the rules are on upgrading, sorry.

You can make your own centerpieces, just remember that Disney will not set them up for you. You will have to do it or have someone designated to do it. If you have a budget, for example, if you want to spend a total of $500 on floral, Disney will help you come up with decor in your budget. With an Escape wedding you will have no more than 3 tables plus a sweetheart so there isn't too much to decorate!

As for photography, Disney doesn't offer this but they have preferred vendors. But be warned their preferred vendors are pricey (IMO). If you are on a budget, like we are, I highly recommend searching for your own photographer in Orange County. You can start your search by looking at Disneyland weddings and engagement shoots on www.DisneyWeddingBlog.com.

I hope that helps a little!

Hi! I'm not sure about the limit where Disney would start charging you for special flower requests; however, I do know that you CAN request specific flowers, and if the florist can get them within the amount allotted for your bouquet, you most likely wouldn't be charged. The flowers that come with the Disneyland Escape package are seasonal, and as MindyJoy said, you do get to request colors - maybe your choice of flowers would be in season

I'm not sure how helpful it is, but Disney currently offers round or square centerpieces for $100 inclusive, and aisle petals start at $125 inclusive - just to give you an idea of what to expect if you go through Disney for your Escape floral. HTH

Thanks so much for the prices, Kipperoo!

Is it just me, or do they seem (at least for floral and such) rather steep for what they are? $100 for a small centerpiece? I'm guessing that an outside vendor would be much more reasonable. Can anyone clear this up for me?

I Disney, but they are ALWAYS going to be more expensive than an outside vendor.

A popular floral vendor in the Disneyland area seems to be Marina's Flowers. I don't have any personal experience with them but lots of brides seem to like them.

Anyone thinking about planning a Disneyland wedding is welcome to join the Facebook group "Disneyland Brides." It's a very active group w/ lots of past and future DLR brides.

I also heard that they opened up more Escape locations besides the three listed. Anyone know which ones or have a picture to share?

Hi Emily,

When we got our paperwork in December 2010 there were five locations listed:

Brisa Courtyard
Parkview Terrace
Grand Californian Wedding Garden
Adventure Gazebo (formerly Dreams Gazebo)
Pier Side Pavilion.

I have pictures in my blog here: http://budgetfairytale.blogspot.com/...s-and-our.html

This is the FAQ about Disneyland weddings. It includes some basic pricing information and when you should start planning and booking your date. You can kind of click around the Disneyland Wedding site for most of that information.

I have a silly question!! My DF would like to have his bachelors party on the Tower of Terror early morning---any idea how he'd go about that? Just one ride in the park and that was it. Is it even possible?
