Though I couldn’t have a wedding in Disney World, I was lucky enough that my husband was okay with putting “Disney touches” into our wedding, and we decided to go with an overall fairy tale theme. One of my favorite parts of planning the wedding was figuring out our centerpieces. I knew I didn’t want the typical flower arrangement, so I worked on creating my own Disney wedding centerpieces. Each table was based on a different fairy tale.
The base of each centerpiece was decorative book boxes I found at Michaels. These were gorgeous and had that old fashioned look that reminded my fairy tales. Though the Disney stories are films, the book aspect was very important to me as a children’s librarian! So I wanted to include books in some way, and this was the perfect way to do it.
Then, to represent each fairy tale, I found little items to display on top of the book boxes. I visited thrift stores, places like TJ Maxx, and shopped online at Amazon or eBay. Finally, to create each table name I made a bookmark with the title of that fairy tale and used a photo stand to hold it up.
The fairy tales we used were Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, the Little Mermaid, Snow White, the Frog Prince, Rapunzel, Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland, the Princess and the Pea, and Peter Pan. Here are some photos of each!
Which of these Disney wedding centerpieces is your favorite?
