One of the biggest advantages when it comes to having a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding is the “Disney Wedding experts” that you will automatically be paired with. These expert wedding planners, wedding consultants, wedding coordinators, and more will all be there “to learn your love story, understand your wedding vision, and bring your unique fairy tale to life”. While a team of Disney staff might automatically sound expensive, don’t be alarmed!

Check out our breakdown here of the cheapest Disney Wedding packages; with some of them, you’ll just get one Disney Wedding Consultant instead of a team. You can meet with Disney Wedding Consultants at Walt Disney World “16 months prior to your event date for ceremony and full reception with meal and 12 months prior for all other wedding events”, and you can meet with Disneyland Resort or Aulani Wedding Consultants “18 months prior to your event date”.

The Ever After blog’s first recommendation is choosing your wedding venue. There are four Disney destinations that host weddings: Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in California, Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii, or the Disney Cruise Line cruise ships.

A Disneyland wedding is more expensive than a Walt Disney World Wedding, but Disneyland might also hold lots of happy Disney magic memories for you, so try to find a balance between a spot in the Disney Parks, Disney Resorts, or aboard a Disney cruise ship that speaks to you and a price tag that fits your wedding budget! Disney Weddings encourages prospective couples to pick a few different options and let their Disney Wedding Consultant or Disney Wedding experts help with the decision. 



Choosing the time of day for your wedding or vow renewal is another important choice to make early on; a brunch Disney wedding is cheaper than a dinner wedding, and so is a weekday wedding compared to a weekend wedding. The Wedding Consultant or team that you’re paired with can also help you narrow down which season to get married in, and they will most likely be familiar with the pros and cons of each!

After narrowing down your location, wedding time, wedding day, and season, your Disney Wedding Consultant will help you “officially book your venue and…sign your Letter of Agreement”. This happens “10 to 12 months out from your wedding date”, and then you’ll be taken under the wing of a Disney Wedding Planner who will specifically focus on helping you with your wedding vision.

The Disney Wedding Planner will be involved with your wedding day or vow renewal day extensively, including “working with Disney Chefs to create a wedding menu”, “meeting with your floral designer”, and “scheduling all the details of your day”.

If you’re seriously considering getting married at Aulani, Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, or aboard a Disney Cruise Line cruise ship, then you’ll want to keep an eye on the Ever After blog on The Disney Weddings site also has a glossary of terms ranging from “ruched” to “cake topper”, making it a particularly useful resource for brides and grooms who don’t typically care for wedding fare and who have no idea what to expect.

Walt Disney World Resort also allows tours of Disney’s Wedding Pavilion twice a month in an Open House format, and you can use the site’s “Contact Us” form to schedule a Disneyland Resort wedding venue tour with a Disney Wedding Consultant.

Now you’re ready for your Disney wedding, whether it’s a rustic, whimsical, moody, or holiday affair! Don’t forget to check out these fairy tale princess wedding dresses from the Allure Bridals Disney Fairy Tale Wedding Collection, too — or these cheaper alternatives!
