Disney plays host to over two-thousand weddings each year, with ceremonies occurring at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. And in February of 2007, Disney launched a Fairytale Wedding Collection by master party planner David Tutera, bringing celebrity style and cache to Disney Weddings. Then in April 2007, Disney partnered with Kirstie Kelly to create wedding dresses inspired by the Disney princesses.
However, for many couples, a wedding on Disney property is not a possibility because of high demand and travel or cost constraints. And with the Disney weddings website getting 60,000 visitors every month, it’s clear that many brides would love to bring a little Disney magic to their weddings, even if they can’t say ‘I do’ in Anaheim or Orlando.
Disney’s Fairytale Weddings will be just the tool for brides who want to feel like a Disney princess on their wedding day. With party planning tips from David Tutera, and a special wedding gown section written by Kirstie Kelly, any bride can turn her wedding into a fairytale come true.
Disney’s Fairytale Weddings, published by Disney Editions, is 192 pages and is available now from Amazon.com.
