Here are a list of the Categories announced over these past 12 Days of Christmas:
1. Category for Art Direction (weddings 1st March 2008 onwards only)
We are looking for the most visually inspiring Disney wedding photo, be it of the Bride and Groom, a location, a guest… anything that you consider worthy of winning this Category.
2. Category for Costume Design (weddings 1st March 2008 onwards only)
In the past this category has been for the wedding dress but this year we are looking for what members consider the best dressed/themed wedding party.
3. Category for Music (Original Score) (weddings 1st March 2008 onwards only)
We will invite nominations for the original song choices that the Bride and Groom incorporated into any part of their wedding, be it to walk down the aisle or maybe the wedding party entrance, anything really, you decide.
4. Category for Documentary Short (weddings 1st March 2008 onwards only)
Without dwelling on the stressful too much… we invite you to nominate the Disneymooner Member you feel overcame the “unknown” during their wedding planning.. be it a guest, a family member, an unexpected event or maybe even DFTW themselves…. some or all can really bring out the Bridezilla in us LOL but let’s hear it for those that really had to deal with the trials and tribulations of planning a Disney Wedding.
5. Category for Cinematography (weddings 1st March 2008 onwards only)
Some of our members have really managed to put together a most amazing wedding through design, creativity and sometimes complicated DIY projects resulting in an awe-inspiring look of a wedding that many of us can only dream of having. This category will be awarded to the Disneymooner you think pulled off this amazing feat., anything from invites, floral, hair, whatever … it’s entirely open to interpretation of DIY.
6. Category for Animated Feature Film (weddings 1st March 2008 onwards only)
Planning a Destination Disney Wedding is not just about the Wedding and this award will therefore go to the Disneymooner who pulled off the most memorable event outside of the wedding day e.g. Rehearsal Dinner, Bridal Tea, Grooms Day Out, Bridal Shower etc. etc… you get the picture.
