Thanks to one of our biggest blog contributors here on yourfairytalewedding.com, Living Seas Bride, who talks discusses her thoughts on having an Illuminations Dessert Party.
When we planned out Disney Fairy Tale Wedding in 2006, we knew three definite things.
1. We were having our reception at the Living Seas
2 We were having characters are the reception.
3. We MUST have an illuminations dessert party
In fact, above all else, I was willing to cut corners on floral and decor if it meant having that special moment. I had seen countless other brides have those amazing fireworks images and I was certain to have them.
Many couples struggle with the question when a budget is in mind: Is it worth it?
My answer is always a resounding YES!! The dessert party was a moment I will never forget and one that our guests still talk about six and a half years later. They felt so special being led to a private location during park hours. They felt like the show was all for them….and not the thousands of other guests. 😉
To be able to see the look of awe in the eyes of the youngest to the oldest made the cost worth every penny.
The desserts and view alone are enough to convince anyone who can budget it in, to go for it!
I remember leaving my reception and being so excited to experience one more part of the magic with my guests.
And the view………well it is next to none. I have never had a better view of Illuminations in my life. The pictures can do the talking.

One thought on “Illuminations Dessert Party: Is it worth it?”
We had ours as a welcome reception and it blew people away. I was skeptical about not serving dinner and just doing cordials and desserts, but no one seemed to mind. People still talk about the event six years later.For us it was worth it as well.
