How to DIY for Your Disney Wedding

For those whose wedding plans have been postponed or who just need a while to save up for their wedding, this week’s episode is all about projects you can be DIYing while you wait. Event planner and Disney bride Lisa Hatch joins me to discuss what you’re allowed to DIY and where at Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings in Walt Disney World. Lisa made or brought almost every element of the floral and decor for her Vintage BoardWalk-themed ceremony at Sea Breeze Point, pre-reception at the Whitehall Room & Patio, and reception at the Grand Floridian’s St. Augustine Ballroom on her own—including a carousel horse, a bicycle and multiple canopies to create seaside “shops”!

On today’s episode, we cover which Disney venues allow you to DIY or use outside vendors and what specifically you can make or bring in yourself, including Disney’s guidelines for bringing items for them to set out. Lisa also offers her best DIY advice gleaned from years of professional experience planning events.

    1. World of Color is a GREAT theme! You could do white flower centerpieces with color-changing lights in them, dress each table in a different bright color, have color-changing uplights, do a light-up and/or rainbow bouquet, have each bridesmaid in a different color, do a multicolored light-up dance floor, and/or bring in a fountain (even just a fountain for punch or another beverage) with color-changing cubes in it. For something more subtle, you could theme each table to a different movie that’s featured in the World of Color show, but I’d definitely add something light-up to each table. And in keeping with the opening credits of the original Wonderful World of Color TV show, you could give kaleidoscopes as favors!
