Couples all over the world, from a bride choosing a wedding venue in Southampton to a groom scoping out a cool locale in Times Square for the best wedding reception ever, are keen on Disney Princess Weddings. After all, what’s better than a princess and a prince?
From Tiana to Belle and Jasmine to Mulan, we’ve got the inspiration you need for a magical wedding just as you’ve imagined! Not only is a Disney Princess wedding a whole lot of fun, but remember the romance and happy endings, too.
Details for a Disney Princess Wedding
Most brides want to look and feel like princesses on their wedding day. It is always a dream to be swept off their feet by their gorgeous Prince Charming. What better way to celebrate your big day of love than with a Disney Princess Wedding theme? The journey that started with love and hope culminates in a gorgeous wedding venue surrounded by your loved ones.
The Disney wedding theme should be a reflection of your favorite animated movie, with décor, art, table setting, flowers, colors, and food heavily inspired by your most beloved version of the classic. Some details could be focused around royal weddings like Cinderella, a seaside one like Ariel had in The Little Mermaid, or a beautiful evening wedding that Tiana had in Princess and the Frog.

What to Look for in a Venue for a Disney Princess Wedding
When deciding the wedding venues, you must remember your favorite scenes from the movie. If your wedding is Cinderella-themed, you should opt for a ballroom to recreate Cinderella and Prince Charming's epic moment dancing the waltz. Not only will this add magic to the wedding vows and reception, but it will fit beautifully with your royal Disney wedding.
However, if you prefer something outdoors yet magical, the Frozen theme with faux snowflakes and blue scenery or a lakeside chateau to match the Princess and the Frog would be ideal. The wedding venue should aptly represent your chosen fairy tale to make your big day gorgeous!
Food for a Disney Princess Wedding
Disney theme weddings intertwine romance and fantasy to bring forth a gorgeous classic. The wedding food should be an inspiration from your favorite Disney fairy tale. If you prefer Brave and want to have a Merida-inspired wedding feast, opt for rustic, earthy foods, ale, wines, berry-themed cake, honey flowers, and anything reminiscent of the great outdoors.
If Tangled is your choice, then opt for Elderflower champagne cocktails, a punch the same shade as Rapunzel's golden hair, several large-sized cookies in the shape of a frying pan, garlic bread in long braids, and fun, quirky names for the dishes like Pascals Pancakes, Flynn Rider's Famous Steak, and more.
Table Setting Style for a Disney Princess Wedding
There is plenty of inspiration for table settings based on Disney Princess Weddings. If you love Frozen, the table setting should be filled with icy details with snowflakes – think white candles, ice-blue table linen with white runners, floating candles in acrylic votives, gorgeous silverware and plates, and white and gold placeholders.
If your chosen theme is Sleeping Beauty, the table setting should be in soft pastel shades of blush pink, baby blue, and forest green. The table's overall feel should be romantic, magical, and whimsical, with each element on the table a reflection of Aurora growing up with her fairy godmothers.
Wedding Dresses & Accessories for a Disney Princess Wedding
Disney-themed wedding dresses are the most gorgeous! There are several wedding dress styles to choose from, based on your favorite Disney book or movie. One of the most trendy selections is the classic Cinderella gown in white with off-shoulders, a lace bodice, overlapping beads with silver applique feathers, and a sweetheart neckline.
Modern brides also opt for Ariel-style gowns with beadwork and sequins, bodice patterned with intricate embroidery, and organza swirls around the skirt reminiscent of gorgeous waves swirling with the ocean's ebb and flow. If you want to keep it modern, then the wedding dress and accessories for a full-length Pocahontas gown can be in soft lace with a sleeveless deep V-neck neckline and plunging back, small silver buttons, textured, natural effect on the hemline, and cinched waist. The wedding bouquet should match the color scheme of your chosen animated movie.
Bridesmaids Dresses for a Disney Princess Wedding
Bridesmaids can have the most fun at your wedding! Everything from masks, floral crowns, and floor-length dresses to rhinestone shoes, sequined hairpins, and gorgeous flower bouquets can fit with the wedding theme. In line with the wedding colors, bridesmaids can also have a wide selection of flattering dresses with matching shoes.
If your chosen theme is Princess and the Frog, the bridesmaid dresses can be in a beautiful shade of light or olive green. Rapunzel-themed weddings can have mauve dresses with satin sashes, and Ariel-themed (The Little Mermaid) can be aqua or turquoise floor-length off-shoulder or bare-shoulder dresses with satin or velvet-embroidered or sequined shoes.
Groom Style for a Disney Princess Wedding
Disney Wedding themes are incomplete without a dashing groom! Grooms can take inspiration from the iconic blue suit with a yellow or beige tie courtesy of the Beast from Beauty and the Beast or an ombre blue suit reminiscent of Frozen's fantastic blue and white color scheme.
For a more romantic touch, grooms can also give the men of Arendelle a run for their money with dark velvet fitted tuxedos, maroon boutonnieres, and a light-colored vest. Traditional grooms can opt out of dark colors and think of the off-white/ beige fitted suit Richard Madden as 'Kit' wore in the ballroom scene of Cinderella the Movie from 2015.
Wedding Invitations for a Disney Princess Wedding
Remember, your wedding invitations set the tone for the wedding and reception theme. Ensuring you have the perfect wedding invitations printed or as e-vites to send out well in advance is essential. For Disney-themed wedding invitations, the color scheme should match the chosen theme of the wedding.
Some fantastic wedding color schemes are icy blue, white, and silver for Cinderella-themed weddings. Southern-style font, green backgrounds, lilac flowers, and deep purple or lavender script for the Princess and the Frog. Aladdin-themed wedding invitations should have lavender, gold font with elegant writing, a turquoise cage picture, some henna motifs, or colorful, embossed candles.
Wedding Cake Ideas for a Disney Princess Wedding
The wedding cake should be the crowning glory of the Disney theme. Since Disney movies are intertwined with love, romance, and fantasy, your wedding cake should also reflect the same. Frozen-themed weddings can have icy blue cakes with patterned snowflakes and tiny edible crystals and pearls.
Another stunning wedding cake idea would be a replica of the Sleeping Beauty castle, with the icing in blue fondant, blush pink accents in tiny floral patterns, and large icing roses in peach, pink, and red colors. If you prefer a colorful cake and plan a Coco-themed wedding, then mustard yellow fondant icing on all layers, with sugar vines in a profusion of colorful icing flowers would also look gorgeous!
Wedding Reception Music and Entertainment for a Disney Princess Wedding
Wedding reception music and entertainment should be in-line with the overall Disney theme. It isn't necessary to stick to all the songs from the animated movie, but you should have a few good numbers on your playlist selection.
Some great choices are Can You Feel The Love Tonight from The Lion King, A Whole New World from Aladdin, I See The Light from Tangled, and Ma Belle Evangeline from The Princess and the Frog. The first dance can be to A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes from Cinderella, Tale As Old As Time from Sleeping Beauty, Once Upon A Dream from Sleeping Beauty, Into the Unknown from Frozen, or Part Of Your World from The Little Mermaid.
