Planning a wedding can be a long process, and there are quite a few things to consider during the planning process. One of them is the venue where you’ll have the wedding. While many people might plan on having it at a church, event hall, farm, in their backyard, or on a beach, not many people consider having it at Walt Disney World. However, not only will this bring you and your wedding guests excitement, but it also comes with a few surprising perks.
Disney World has more than 100 locations that you can choose from to have both your ceremony and welcome dinner. Most of these options are quite affordable; however, the cost ranges, and of course, Cinderella’s castle is the most expensive one on the list.
Here are just three of the many surprising perks of having your wedding at Disney World:
1. Request Food From Any Part of Disney
Most venues will allow for 100% customizable menus when it comes to the food. You can go for a standard choice and make your modifications as needed or choose something completely customized from the beginning.
An example modification to a standard food choice would be picking the Mickey-shaped waffles and having them be an action station. An action station means that a chef will prepare them in front of you and have guests choose their toppings to be added. This can be done for crepes, omelets, and more.
Plus, chefs can be asked to re-create family recipes and even cook non-Disney food as requested.
2. Guests Can Ride in an Empty Park
For an additional cost, your guests can embark on different events after the reception. A popular option is the “Ride Mix-in” which allows the wedding guests to go on a private ride right after the welcome dinner. With Flight of Passage, you can have your guests escorted to the ride of your choice and have no wait time.
3. Disney Planners Do Everything
Disney World has event planners that will take care of the entire planning process for you. They’ll work with your budget and make sure that you don’t go over and even finalize all, the details. If something goes wrong, the planners typically already have a solution before contacting you to let you know.
In the midst of a pandemic, planning a wedding comes with some serious challenges. With so many wedding planners and professionals usually just a meeting away, not too many newly engaged couples ask themselves how much of their wedding planning they can do on their own. The good news is there are plenty of things that brides- and grooms-to-be can do on their own. Since we’re all cooped up at home, now is the time to say: “challenge accepted!”
No matter how far along you are, check out five simple ways you can continue planning your wedding worry-free from the comfort of your home.
1. Create Your Own Wedding Website
Don’t stress! Everything you do on a daily basis is online – and this can be, too. Build your own central hub of information where you’ll be able to share updates with your guests and stay connected with your vendors and suppliers, even if everything is up in the air at this point.
2. Revise Your Pinterest Boards
Take your mind off the news, and start revising your Pinterest boards instead. Create different categories like wedding dresses, bridal hair, makeup looks, just go wild! Make sure everything is well organized so when this is all over you can keep your inspirations up to date and get the ball rolling again.
3. Take Virtual Dance Lessons
If you’re quarantining with your partner take some time to work on your dancing skills, because who doesn’t want to have one hell of a first dance at their wedding day? There are tons of online services available to you, give it a try you’ve got nothing to lose!
4. Make Your Own Wedding Playlist
Speaking of music, start off by creating a reception playlist. Brainstorming can take days or even weeks. Now is the perfect time to do that. Oh, and don’t forget the “do not play” list because it’s as important, especially since it’s one that your DJ can’t really guess at, we all have different tastes in music.
5. Take Care Of Yourself
Whether you’re taking some time off of work or not, it’s important to practice self-care. Eat well, exercise with your partner and most importantly take care of your emotional and mental well-being, nobody likes a bridezilla in quarantine, especially your bae. Remember, you’re not alone. Eventually, all of this will be over and your big day will be right around the corner. So, cheer up and start planning!
