As a Disney Bride blogger, I communicate with a lot of fellow Disney Brides, and I’m convinced that no one – and I mean NO ONE – gets as much DRAMA as Disney Brides do regarding their choice of wedding venues!
Look, we get it that not everyone drinks the Disney kool-aid. But we do, and we think it’s DELICIOUS, and that’s why we chose to get married there. Comments like “You’re getting married at Disney? I hate that place,” have no purpose but to make us feel ashamed of our fandom. I’m pretty certain no one says “Oh, you’re getting married at a Four Seasons? That would be my worst nightmare.” This is not the time to get on your soapbox about price-gauging and long queues. I’m sorry you were deprived as a child and don’t understand the joy of flying elephants and twirling tea cups. So when we tell you we’re getting married at Disney, this would be a good time to take a lesson from Thumper: “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all!”
Another thing - We know it’s hilarious to ask if Goofy will be officiating or if Cruella de Vil will be the Maid of Honor. Just know that this is the one billionth time we’ve heard this “joke.” You’re not original or clever. And just because we are getting married at a unique venue does not give you the liberty to ask us how much it’s costing us. RUDE. Asking about money is just plain tacky no matter the venue or circumstances!
So whether it’s a theme park or a fancy hotel or the Masonic lodge or their own backyard, respect a couple’s choice of venues! It may seem weird to you, but it might have a very special meaning to the couple, and it’s THEIR wedding day, not yours, GEEZ!!! When YOU get married you can choose whatever venue YOU want! And we promise we won’t roll our eyes at you.
