Fairytale Themes: Cinderella

Our Disneymooner Member and Pixie, Katie, wanted to share her Cinderella Theme for her Disney Wedding:

I always knew that I was a princess. And I always knew that I would have my wedding at Disney. So of course, once I was engaged and everyone was on board with a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding, it was decided that the theme would be Cinderella, but not the character, the aspects of the story instead. We would focus on the slipper and the coach, and focus we did.

Even before our wedding even started, we had our theme in place at my bridal shower, we, of course, needed a coach cake

For the wedding, we started with our locations at Disney, The American Adventure Rotunda…there is no place that looks more like the castle ballroom in the world, no place else in the world that I could imagine floating across the floor dancing with my own prince charming, my new husband.

And of course, we needed to add Cinderella’s Coach… there was never any question there…

But it’s the little things that really make a theme…

We chose Cinderella coaches as our centerpieces and used them as ceremony decorations as well


And made little slippers on pillows to put in the middle instead of floral


We had the slipper sorbet


The white chocolate slipper dessert

Our Sparkling Wishes cake had the white chocolate castle topper

My Swarovski Crystal tiara and jewelry had a hidden coach

The table cards were held by little coaches

We wrapped up slipper bottle openers as our favors

We had a coach gobo


We tried to think of every little area that we could tie into the theme and in the end, I truly felt like Cinderella and I did marry my Prince Charming 😉 You can too! If you are a Disney Bride and would like to read my full recaps of my wedding day, join the Forums!

Specialty Desserts at Disney Weddings

We all know Cinderella wore a glass slipper, but did you know that slipper comes in chocolate and ice as well?

Disney’s excellent chefs offer Disney wedding couples the opportunity to add several special treats for their guests.

Typically the cake is the traditional dessert served at weddings, but brides and grooms can also choose to serve other treats that will make the “ooooh’s and aaaah’s” flow.

Some of the choices are:

  • Serving sorbet as a palette cleanser from one of these spectacular light up mini ice  sculptures
    • Cinderella’s Ice Slipper
    • Beauty’s Ice Rose.
    • Mickey’s Icon in Ice
    • Mickey Hand

Want to give your guests individualized attention for dessert rather than a slice of cake?

  •  Serve a chocolate slipper filed with your  choice of chocolate mousse and fresh fruit such as raspberries.

  •  Mini cake designs for each guest

Have you served one of these specialty treats to your wedding guests?  Or Have you done something even different?

Come share your stories and pictures on the Disneymooner Forums.

Other brides have shared images and details on these treats, including surprise ways to present them and pricing details.

We always remind brides to ask their planners for other options
