Trends We Love: Photo Booths

By far one of the biggest weddings trends we have seen are Photo Booths, and they are making their way to Disney Fairytale Weddings as well.

Photo Booths are a great way to capture memories is a funny and unique way. Some couples choose to have props for their photo booths to really amp up the fun-filled energy of the wedding. Others choose a more classic approach and go with black and white film strips.

Disney Fairytale Weddings as up with the current trends and we have seen these used at Atlantic Dance Hall as well as other locations( as showcased on their official blog).

As always, we advise you to consult your Disney wedding planner for the cost renting this would cost your event.  As with most additions to your wedding, you can hire an outside vendor to do your photo booth if it is an out of park reception. The prices of these photo booths vary but couples can estimate at a couple thousand dollars.

If that price is too high for a couple to budget or they want the same effect for their reception; here are some fun cheaper ideas:

*get a Polaroid camera and leave a note for guests to take a picture and write a message for the couple.

*Get disposable cameras and have an area for guests to take their picture. You can develop them later and even make them digital and create photo strips online.

California Grill to Close for Renovations

It has been recently announced that the California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort will close on January 6th, 2013 for renovations.  As of right now, Disney Fairy Tale Weddings says that the California Grill is blocked out until July 20th, 2013 but that date could be pushed back even further.

Disney’s California Grill is home to the Napa and Sonoma rooms. These are popular reception choices for their gorgeous panoramic views of Bay Lake and the Magic Kingdom.

The Napa room is a coveted choice for it’s access to the observation deck which makes the nightly “Wishes” fireworks show, at Magic Kingdom, a magical ending to your Disney wedding.

We’re pretty excited to see what the new California Grill will look like when it’s all finished, how about you?
