Are you hoping for a Disney wedding, but searching for an unexpected-yet-romantic theme? Why not try a Mary Poppins wedding on for size? Disney Weddings recently shared a sample reception area from the EPCOT United Kingdom Pavilion in the World Showcase, and this reception’s setting looks perfect for a wedding based on Mary Poppins and Bert’s relationship from the 1964 film Mary Poppins.
While it’s true that Mary Poppins and Bert aren’t the first romantic Disney couples to come to mind, this duo is not to be underestimated for a wedding theme! Mary Poppins and Bert’s dynamic is sweet, understated, and overall family-friendly. So if you’re having a Disney wedding with lots of children, celebrating a big anniversary with a vow renewal, or feeling a bit too shy to exhibit lots of romantic affection in front of a crowd, then the demure style of these two Disney characters might suit you best!
One of the best things about Mary Poppins is that its aesthetic is actually an easy, safe, and flattering one for any occasion–and if you’re actually having your wedding reception in EPCOT’s United Kingdom Pavilion, then the setting will be halfway done automatically. The delicate table settings, charming decor, and unique details like bikes and kites would make for a wonderfully intimate but slightly whimsical reception! After seeing this reception area, it seems like kites might be an underutilized wedding accessory!
A wedding theme like Mary Poppins will also be chock-full of unexpected inspiration when it comes to your special day. For example, your going-away dress at the end of the night before your honeymoon is usually your wedding dress–but if you want to mix things up, why not bring back the traditional idea of a going-away outfit and wear something more like Mary Poppins’ iconic white dress? Vintage waistcoats and structured, waist-cinching petticoats are classics for a reason; they’re flattering on almost everybody!
If you’re a Disney bride in need of makeup inspiration, Mary Poppins can also be your inspiration. An even complexion, some mascara, a little brow pencil, and a very soft red lip stain will look feminine while lasting the night! And if your budget doesn’t allow for an official Disney princess wedding dress from the Allure Bridals collection, take a look at some less expensive (but no less Disney princess-esque) wedding dresses!
