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.
