Disney Weddings Unveils 2013 Collection at Bridal Fashion Week

posted on October 15th, 2012 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


Bridal Fashion Week is one of my absolute favorite times of the year – it’s when the seasons start to change and the entire industry comes together to celebrate tulle, beading and a whole lot of sparkle. And this year was no exception, as we unveiled two new Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings gown collections by Alfred Angelo this past Friday. The Cinderella Diamond Collection stole the show with its five blue-hued gowns created in honor of the re-release of the animated classic earlier this year. They’re the perfect “something blue” for the modern bride. Front row seats are typically hard to come by during fashion week, but today I’m giving you an all access pass to see behind the scenes, on the runway and what it takes to pull off a fabulous event.

For more information on the Cinderella Diamond Collection, be sure to visit our Facebook page.

Top 10 Disney Wedding Cakes

posted on September 10th, 2012 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


Fondant, frosting and floral – oh my! Cakes set the precedent for a wedding reception and are a chance for couples to express their personality, carry out a theme or even surprise and delight their guests. One of my favorite things about working for Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings is that we have some of the most talented pastry chefs in the world right at our fingertips, and we can offer couples the chance to make their every cake fantasy come to life. From groom’s cakes to cupcakes, our Bakery has you (and your stomach) covered.

So without further ado, I’ve tried my best to narrow down all the magnificent artistry I’ve seen over the years into my top ten favorites. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?

A Wedding Trend That’s Downright Adorkable

posted on June 19th, 2012 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


“Downright

Most grooms know it’s all about the bride, but we’re seeing more and more men wanting a little piece of the spotlight on their big day too- rightfully so! Grooms want a voice so they still look (and feel) like themselves when saying “I do”.

“Downright “Downright

Right now we’re seeing a lot of our guys choosing to forgo proper tuxes altogether and, instead, gift custom suits to their groomsmen. Since each suit is unique to the individual, groomsmen feel included in the big day and walk away with a practical gift they’ll wear again and again. Suspenders, geeky glasses and sneakers are still very in and a fun way to infuse personality without compromising a formal look.

“Downright

Remember: whether you’re sporting a bright bow tie or fun boutonniere, it’s important you feel like yourself when walking down the aisle. After all, it’s your day too.

Gearing Up for the Summer Wedding Season at Disney Parks & Resorts

posted on May 26th, 2012 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


“Kris

Here at Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings we’ve been extra busy gearing up for June, which is always one of our busiest months of the year. And I have to admit that all of this June weddings hustle and bustle has given me a case of summer fever! As luck would have it, Kris and Jeff’s big day is just what the doctor ordered and comes chalk-full of the best summer has to offer – beaches, sunshine and of course flip-flops.

This dynamic duo met while working at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but when it came time to tie the knot, Kris and Jeff packed their bags for a different kind of adventure – a Disney’s Vero Beach Resort adventure, that is! The couple chose to infuse Vero’s seaside feel into every aspect of their wedding and paid extra special attention to detail. From the darling cupcake display (with a cake topper made by the bride herself) to the shoe check, this event was truly a coastline lover’s paradise.

A Jungle-Grade Wedding Cake at Walt Disney World Resort

The Jungle Cruise Wedding Cake at Walt Disney World Resort

One of my favorite parts of a wedding is the cake. It brings people together, makes for great photos and is a chance for couples to express their personalities. Newlyweds Lisa and Steven did just that. The duo met on the Disney College Program while Steven was a skipper at Jungle Cruise, so when it was time to say “I do” Lisa worked with our bakery team to design a cake after the attraction itself.

Cinderella’s Royal Ponies have the important job of transporting brides to their happily-ever-afters everyday – and sometimes they even have a love story of their own to share…

A Holiday Wedding at Disney Parks

“Jeff

Our couples are always up for a good theme – especially around the holidays. What I love most about Disney Parks at Christmas time is that you can actually save on your wedding budget by utilizing the existing holiday décor.

Jeff & Becky chose to embrace the colors, smells and look of the season for their recent nuptials. Anything but ordinary, this creative event spared no attention to detail. From the gourmet cupcakes inside gingerbread houses to the elf place cards, everything carried out their theme to holiday perfection.

A Halloween Wedding at Walt Disney World

Happy Halloween, ghouls and boys! I love the holidays and especially love when our couples get into the festivities. Today, we have a very special wedding happening at Walt Disney World- a wedding inspired by Halloween itself. Adam & Wendy wanted their family and friends to have as much fun as possible at their wedding- they are traveling far and wide to attend after all. So they encouraged guests (and Cast Members) to don their favorite costume for the All Hallows’ Eve nuptials. Till death do us part…
