Disney Fairytale Weddings

I have something to confess to you all.  I am a MAHOOSIVE Disney fan.  I've even been harbouring two Mickey and Minnie champagne flutes for my own big day. So when I came across the website for Disney Weddings, imagine my excitement!

Now I know Disneyland is a far strech from Lancashire but when the brochure dropped through my letterbox I just couldn't resist telling you all about it.  Ever since I was a little girl, I have imagined myself marrying my very own Prince Charming in the pink Disney castle.  Yes, I was a little disappointed to find out that you can't actually get married in there but I got over that when I saw the rest of the brochure.

Disney organise weddings at 4 locations: Florida, California, Hawaii and on their magnificent Cruise Liner. Each location has different collections depending on whether you want an intimate affair or a wedding that meets all your princess wishes.  Use this link to see a collection comparison for each location and find out what each collection offers.

 Disney also have inhouse wedding planners and services to pander to your every need.  At Florida, Franck's Bridal Studio- a re-creation of Franck's studio from the hit Touchstone movie "Father of the Bride" - showcases all of Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings' offerings in a Victorian summerhouse setting. The planning studio is elegantly styled with French provincial furniture and antique portraits in gilt. Classical music plays quietly in the background.  Brides-to-be can meet with their Disney Wedding Specialist to select all the elements that comprise their storybook wedding: music, entertainment, photography, candelabras, centerpieces, sample specialty linens, fresh floral arrangements, world-class cuisine, cakes and guest books.

Once you have chosen your location, you then have an abundance off venues to choose from.  Have your reception in the actual theme park, or choose from one of many beautiful terraces or lavish Ballrooms.  As always with Americans, Disneys have weddings off to a tee.  So if its those special touches that make you go gaga for weddings then Disney is your place. 

But with all this choice I'm not quite sure how one will ever decide!

  1. Here at All Sewn Up ( we offer an outstanding Wedding and bridesmaid dress alterations service, getting married is so special and exciting that choosing just the right dress is every young ladies dream come true. This is true when choosing a seamstress for altering your dress. You want to be able to feel confident that you have chosen the right person to work on your dream dress and you have come to the right place.

    You may find the perfect wedding dress, but the chances that a gown will fit you like a glove are about as great as getting hit by lightning. You may find a wedding dress that causes you to swoon, but it may be too short or too long, or too tight in the hips but too loose in the bust.

    If you buy your dress in a boutique or shop specializing in wedding gowns, the shop will probably have an in-house wedding dress alterations service. However, if you buy your dress from a department store or used, you may have to find a specialist bridal seamstress. Ask friends and family members for advice and recommendations, and look around on the Web. A good place to start is reading the reviews or customer feedback on websites. is a great place to start!

    Wedding gowns are different from other clothing: They have boning, beading and bustles. It’s best to work with someone who has extensive experience working on bridal gown alterations.

    Once you’ve found someone to alter your wedding dress, make sure to bring the undergarments, shoes, veil and other accessories. Think about the difference between a push-up bra and a corset or a stiletto versus a pump: An inch makes a difference, especially when it comes to fitting a dress perfectly.

    Alterations take time, and the amount of time depends upon the alterations you need. If you need only the hem worked on or minor adjustments, you don’t need a lot of time, but, if you need the gown reworked, you’ll need more time. For example, if you are trying to lose weight for your wedding, you may not want to bring the dress in too early. If you bring your gown in too late, you risk not having enough time to get the alterations finished so best ring to make an appointment and ask Maxine for advice on 07870980304 (Chorley,Lancashire)
