Walt Disney once said 'If you can dream it, you can do it' and the same can definitely be said when creating a wedding theme centred on the magic of Disney. From Disney Princesses to Disney Pixar, there are a whole host of themes to inspire all aspects of your big day.

Think about the stationery, the décor, the cake and more when considering how to make your Disney wedding a dazzling occasion. Here, wedding suppliers across the country share their expertise in discovering your happily ever after.

The stationery

Rebecca Adams, director of RLA Wedding Designs: "I get asked so often for a Disney theme or Disney inspired influences to be added to their stationery, with some couples wanting subtle hints to others wanting the full Disney theme. I always incorporate the Disney-inspired font into the design which is easily recognisable to all guests and instantly highlights the upcoming theme by letting the guests know exactly what to expect with fairytale wedding stationery. Using familiar phrases throughout the stationery is also a lovely way to tie in the theme - such as 'Be Our Guest' for the popular Beauty and the Beast, and 'Once Upon a Time'."

Jane D'Arcy, owner of stationery company Little Pea Designs in Norfolk, comments: "When thinking about your wedding stationery and styling, the possibilities really are endless, and you can add lots of small touches to pull the scheme together. Think about your favourite movie or character and use the same colour theme. Yellow and blue are always a popular choice.

"You could pick up on a flower that may be a prominent part of the story, a rose for example, and use that for on the day items, such as place cards, table names and numbers, and your seating plan. Your stationer will have several clever ways of bringing that theme into your stationery using floral papers, ribbons and embellishments or graphic prints."

The table settings and centrepieces

Gemma Starr, owner of Little Star Events in Hampshire and Surrey who co-ordinated this Frozen-inspired wedding shoot, says: “Some couples are concerned about how to carry through a Disney theme into their special day without having it take over, but there are some beautifully subtle ways of incorporating this magical theme into your wedding.

"I have seen themed table centrepieces such as the rose in the glass from Beauty and the Beast, teapots filled with flowers for Alice In Wonderland and dark centrepieces with bright red apples for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. If you are a huge Disney fan and wanted something very subtle, you could have Once Upon A Dream / Happily Ever After engraved on the inside of your wedding bands. I really do love the Disney theme and think it can be achieved in a really classy way with the right touches."

The wedding cake

Jane Galloway-Reilly, owner and designer at Confetti & Crumbs in Cheshire: "I am working on a Disney-themed wedding in October at Eaves Hall in Lancashire. My advice to the couple was to think outside the box and instead of it being obvious Disney, take elements from their favourite films... like the red apples from Snow White alongside the moss and woodland or the red rose from Beauty and the Beast. Then it becomes more of a wedding cake rather than a birthday cake. Using quotes from the storylines in the cake can work well too."

Linda Ashcroft at Buttercup Cakes, based on the border of Cheshire and Derbyshire, continues: "As you will see from the below photo,  Disney doesn’t have to be big fairytale castles or models of characters. Subtle silhouettes, combined with pretty flowers make this a beautiful and classic cake with a touch of Disney."

The transport

Only a fairytale carriage inspired by Cinderella's pumpkin coach will do for a Disney princess bride. Decorate in flowers that match your colour scheme for even more of a wow factor.

The details

For a subtle nostalgic nod, opt for Disney branded 'I do' shoe stickers or buttons shaped like Mickey Mouse.
