With National Bridal Market just around the corner, the Disney Fairy Tale Wedding team is getting fired up to see what’s in store for 2013! We will probably see shades of blues and neutrals with an infusion of glamour – after all a good metallic can really transform an entire look.
We can’t wait to see what Michael Shettel’s team dreams up for the new additions to the Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings by Alfred Angelo Collection – we’re still in love with the dreamy fabrics and timeless magic from 2012…
Stay tuned for live Bridal Market updates, where we’ll be giving you first looks and must-haves for 2013.
The first 250 people who responded to a “tweet up” invitation have already secured their seats in Disney’s Wedding Pavilion.
“Everyone remembers where they watched the last royal wedding,” said Korri McFann, marketing director, Disney’s Fairytale Weddings & Honeymoons. “April 29 is another royal occasion and we are thrilled to offer such a special viewing to help create lasting memories for moms, daughters, families and friends.”
Guests are invited to dress up in “princess or prince attire” — or come in their pj’s — for the early-hour gathering to watch, via live television, the royal couple tie the knot. Deemed as the biggest royal wedding since Princess Diana and Prince Charles, the exchange of vows between Kate Middleton and Prince William will take place at Westminster Abbey with the Archbishop of Canterbury officiating.
In addition to the viewing, the occasion at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion will include:
An English-inspired breakfast will be served to honor the occasion.
Cinderella’s Coach, which was crafted by Bennington Carriages — coach maker for the British Monarchy — will be available as a backdrop for pictures.
Newly-released Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Jewels and tiaras, as well as Disney Princess-inspired wedding gowns from Disney Fairy Tale Weddings by Alfred Angelo will be showcased.
Plus: There’ll be a few entertainment surprises in store.
