Escape collection questions

Hiya,

I noticed on the disney weddings site that they haven't included any information on receptions with the escape collection like they do the others. Can anybody help?

Thank you xx

That's because the Escape Collection doesn't include a reception. It's designed to be a simple package with ceremony and cake-cutting with Champagne. What you do afterward is up to you. Many people book a reservation at a restaurant. If you do want to do a private catered event, your DFTW planner can help you add one. Then you pay any associated venue fee and the food and beverage minimums. There are limits, though—the event only lasts 2 hours and you can't have a DJ. It's really just a meal, rather than a reception.

You can add a reception to an Escape wedding. The choice of locations is slightly limited and it'll trigger a minimum spend but its no problem to do.

I suggest you buy this book to help with your planning:

And here is a helpful podcast, you want episode 40:

There are a ton of Brides that have used Sea Breeze Point before! We've actually chosen that location for our Escape wedding in November, because we've only heard good things, and it certainly is a beautiful location!

It is a gorgeous venue, but outside So bear that in mind when choosing your month if the heat and humidity may be an issue for you! xx
