Can anyone give me more of a specific answer on how much an actual wedding will cost at Disney. It looks like we will have about 83 guests. I requested info on prices but I would just like to know a round about number of what anyone has actually spent. I believe it's $85/ person for events starting before 2pm and jumps up to $110/person for events starting after 2pm. Thank you

On the first page of this thread, someone posted pictures of their wedding, in one photo it shows an aisle runner and it reads "And they lived Happliy Ever After". I would love to know where you got your aisle runner from? I love it!!!!

It all depends on what you want for your wedding. You have basic minimums you have to hit: 10,000 for weekday weddings, 12000 friday-sunday weddings. All food and beverage MUST come from Disney but that's it. More than likely you won't have much trouble meeting that with your food and ceremony location fee. I am planning on using an outside photographer, dj, and possibly florist. For in park there is a higher minimum for Disneyland at 100,000. They do not quote minimums for DCA & you inquire to that on your own. They say the average cost for a Wedding ins 26,000 right now. You can definatly do less than that at Disney.

I moved my wedding up to April 23 but my May date was available as well. The person I spoke to said Saturday's fill up very quickly but mid-week weddings are more rare. I would suggest you talk to someone as soon as you have a definite idea on your date. They are not as strict as WDW about booking Weddings at a certain month mark. Mine is over a year a way and I should be getting my contract this week. I think at the time she still had weekends available for May 2009. Hope that helps somehow!

I recently heard that DL starts booking dates at 18 months out. I thought it was a year, but supposedly this a recent change and are now booking further advance. I have to say I dont mind. With my wedding being 2 1/2 years away id like to start planning a soon as I can.

This is a possibility. I know that many brides have been able to tenatively book their dates at 18months. However, due to DVC construction, being able to book at 18 mo wold make sense.

Oh, hi everyone!

I just had to pop in and re-live wedding planning at the DLR. Things have changed and some things have stayed the same!

Best of luck to everyone! Please post pictures when you can!

If I can say, I had my wedding on a Monday at 2pm. We were able to get the before 2 pm pricing because we were the only wedding for the day. (but that was 8 years ago). My guests loved having reasons for not going to work on a Monday, so it worked out.

I also found one at http://www.signatureweddingaislerunn...m/phrases.html

I am not sure if that is where Disney Floral went, and it looks a little different, but it is less than $ 250.

Room Blocks

Since the guests of Disneyland Brides have less hotels to choose from within Disneyland did any of you block rooms at offsite hotels? I am sending my save the dates out this week and would like to have room blocks set up shortly after. And did most of your guests stay on site or did they stay off property? Thanks for any help you can all offer me!

Val,
Almost all of my guests stayed offsite. We provided them with a list of the nearby hotels and indicated the ones that we recommended the most. Many of our guests stayed at the Dessert Inn and Suites because they accommodate more people in their rooms and were much cheaper than Disney's hotels. This worked well for my moms family as they were able to get some of their rooms near each other. They just called and asked for their rooms to be grouped together.

Others stayed at HoJo and requested their rooms to be near eachother. As with any request no guarantees about room location, but all requests were accommodatd for most.

Thank you for responding so quickly! I usually stay on site so the thought really didn't occur to me until someone mentioned it.
