    We took a ton of pictures of the Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings booth at last week's D23 Expo - I thought I'd post them here for anyone who's interested! :goodvibes

    They had a PhotoPass photographer stationed there to snap pictures of people in front of the carriage... the real-live carriage that Disney uses for actual real-live weddings. ;)

    We saw another carriage later in our trip, and DH grabbed a shot. I've since been informed that this carriage is not Disney's but one provided by an outside vendor - for sure Cinderella would never make an illegal right-hand turn! :rotfl:

    They had four reception decor looks on display. Only one was an official David Tutera Couture look - the other three were created by Disneyland's team, and one was developed in coordination with a bride who'll be married inside Disneyland in a few weeks.


    David Tutera's Enchanted Garden Couture look (the wedding planner I spoke to agreed that it sure looks a lot more purple in the official pix on the website! :cutie:)

    Awesome! Thanks Carrie! I'm so jealous you got to go to the expo, but am happy to hear all your reports (even if it does include Cinderella breaking the law!:rotfl:)!

    Thanks for the pictures!! I want to join the D23 now. I love the beach theme table I wonder how much that stand cost to rent to put the sand underneath?

    Half of the booth was devoted to the dresses and jewelry designed by Kirstie Kelly for Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings.

    I know, right? I just noticed that! :lmao:

    I'm curious too! Also, you don't have to be a D23 member to go to the Expo, and it sounds like they'll be doing one again next year, so you may have your chance!




    OK, my pix are totally huge - lemme resize them....

    Cool, that table setup with the purple is actually for my wedding coming up next week! I didn't know they used it at D23, makes me super excited! (Not that I'm already not excited!)

    She was so friendly - she even signed autographs for people!

    It was fun to feel like we were reporting on something important for the DIS! :rotfl:


    I wondered if it belonged to someone on the DIS - congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I hope you'll come back here and share pictures with us - we just don't have enough info on Disneyland weddings around here...:thumbsup2

    Thanks for all the pics Carrie! It is so awesome to see everything. I must say I do like these wedding dresses better than the first ones she came out with. I like the first on you posted the best just without the belt in the middle, then it would be perfect. :)

    Was the girl in the wedding dress posing with Kristie a bride? Were they letting people try on dresses?

    Yeah I'm sure I could post some pictures after it's all said and done.

    We're doing a castle wedding our reception is going to be out in front of It's A Small World, weather permitting of course (no rain please!) reception should start at about 1030pmish.

    I do wonder how many of the brides who buy that dress actually wear the belt.... :)

    Any time! :thumbsup2

    I think she was a model. They had just had a wedding fashion show (very unfortunately scheduled to coincide with Jay Rasulo's big presentation about the theme parks :sad2:). She kinda stood around solo and posed for pix in front of the carriage.

    Everything looks so amazing! Thanks for sharing all of that with us! It is great to know what else goes on with DFTW, as you often tend to get lost in your own planning.

    Haha - I have to say this - that 39 year old man in the green shirt and the 24 year old GIRL in the wedding dress...that's my EX-FIANCE of four months and his gross new fiancee - ONLY FOUR MONTHS LATER after we had a wedding planned and everything...oh yeah, that was AFTER his first marriage! I'm not even sure she's DIVORCED yet from her husband. Jason's a "well known" Disney person too - that's why a) he can get these younger girls and b) why he was at the Expo. Pretty funny he's in your photos. Thanks for the laugh, Carrie!

    I hope she starts a PJ here. That would crack me up!!

    The new wedding stuff IS gorgeous!
