Live from Disneyland’s Festival of Brides!

Today’s episode comes to you (almost) live from Sunday’s Festival of Brides at the Disneyland Hotel! The Disneyland version of this recurring vendor fair is a special treat because Disney throws open its doors for a glimpse of what a real, live Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding is like.

In addition to photo ops with Cinderella’s Crystal Coach and face time with wedding planners, attendees can view reception venues filled with floral and decor ideas. And, as with every Festival of Brides event, there’s a bridal fashion show, a raffle for door prizes, and plenty of vendors on hand to talk about their services and dispense samples.

Listen as the Disney Wedding Podcast takes you on to the show floor to interview vendors and meet a real bride whose own fairy tale wedding is just weeks away.

  1. Loved this one! Just to clarify, the website Cynthia mentioned at the end is budgetfairytale, run by another Disneyland bride, and we also have a Disneyland Brides group on Facebook. (I got married at the GCH in December). 🙂

    1. Thanks for the info! Yeah, I was kicking myself for misnaming Mindy’s site on-air, but hopefully listeners will click through via the correct link in the show notes.

  2. We’re glad that you got to do some interviews while you were there. It was great to see you again. 🙂

    I also wanted to mention that future attendees should comb through the local area bridal boards for free tickets to this show and also Here Comes the Guide’s website. They provided a ticket for complimentary admission for up to 4 guests.

    Btw, did you see the booth for bejeweled self defense items (pepper spray/stun guns)? LOL

    So glad you got to talk to Disneyland Bride Cynthia too!

    1. NO!!! Oh my gosh, that’s even funnier than the plastic surgeon and the natural weight-loss folks eyeing each other across the aisle!

      Great to see you two again!
