Things I Love: Disney Weddings

Hello lovely readers and happy Monday!    For any of you who know me personally, you know there is one place I love more than any other on the face of the planet: Disneyland.  Disneyland has been a huge part of my life basically since I was one year old.  I religiously visit the Happiest Place on Earth on my birthday and have been a passholder for the past ten years (I don't even want to think about how much money that has cost me!).  Naturally, when planning my own wedding, many people assumed I would be having a "princess" wedding, and more than one person asked if I would be holding my ceremony in front of the castle (y'all do know I make my living as a teacher right?).  As much as I would have LOVED to have had my wedding at my favorite place in the whole wide world, it would have been a selfish decision as the hubs is not nearly as Disney crazed as I am (like he only goes there because I make him).  Though he is very good about going with me to the park whenever I want, that would not have been his ideal wedding, and that made it not my ideal wedding either.  But I'm not going to lie, thinking about a Disney vow renewal at some point in the future is pretty tempting.....

That was a lot more explanation that I was planning on!  Let's get to the good stuff.  Today I wanted to bring you some of the awesome things you can do with a Disney wedding (and that doesn't necessarily mean a wedding at Disneyland or Disney World).  I think most people associate Disney weddings with poofy dresses, huge centerpieces, and a horse and carriage, but to me a Disney wedding doesn't have to equal princess.  Disney is all about being fun, playful and a kid at heart, and that is what I love about Disney weddings and that's where my inspiration comes from.  (Click pics for original source.)

Disney wedding inspiration can start from the very beginning, with these Disney inspired engagement rings:

I'm partial to Sleeping Beauty, myself!  There are also multiple Disney inspired dresses (many of which are of the poofy variety, but not all!).  I think these two are both beautiful!

I absolutely adore this Disneyland inspired save the date, and these super cute invites.

Most Disney wedding cakes are a little much for my tastes, but I think these ones are simply adorbs.

And if you have seen the Disney/Pixar film Up, you know what an AMAZING love story it truly is.  Incorporate some cute Up elements into your big day (balloons anyone?) for a fun and playful vibe.

I know Disney weddings are not for everyone, but I couldn't resist.  Unfortunately, now I am planning my Disney vow renewal in my head....don't know how the hubs is going to feel about that one....
