What is a Disney-themed wedding?

A Disney-themed wedding takes inspiration from the beautiful and awe-inspiring world of Walt Disney. From the movies to the books to the theme parks, fans of any and all Disney properties can easily bring elements of their favorite world into their very own ceremony and reception.

You can do a general Disney theme for your wedding or choose from a few different sub-themes within the Disney fandom. For example, some Disneyphiles are obsessed with the original black and white adventures of Mickey Mouse while others can’t imagine a wedding where they don’t belt out Frozen’s “Let It Go” with their partners on the dance floor.

Really, it’s all about keeping your choices in line with whichever characters inspired you to search for Disney-themed wedding ideas in the first place!
