28 Disney decoration ideas for your wedding reception

Written by Katie Byrne

Add an extra twist of magic to your wedding day with these fairytale ideas


Starting with the wedding programmes

When it comes to designing your Order of Service, there's plenty of scope for adding a Disney twist: whether you want to go for a small smattering (such as a favourite quote) or a full-on, movie-inspired wedding programme.

Set the theme for your ceremony 

A gorgeous sign in that oh-so recognisable Disney font will welcome your guests and encourage them to, er, pull up a pew - and that aisle-runner idea... Wow!

The signage 

From quotes to dancefloor rules, there are endless ways to encorporate your favourite words (and fonts!) into your reception.

Incredible edibles

Look to Alice In Wonderland's Mad Hatter's Tea Party scene for some delicious inspiration for your foodie favours and cocktails.

Fantasy florals

Swap traditional 'bride' and 'groom' signs and instead incorporate beautiful jewel-bright blooms into your decorative details for the perfect finishing touch for your chairbacks.

And don't over-look the iconic simplicity of a single-stem rose beneath a cloche!

Disney lends itself perfectly to other statement floral arrangements, too

From Mickey-shaped pomanders to Cinderella coaches stuffed with fresh blooms - the options are endless.

The great outdoors

If your venue features a gorgeous outdoors space, add some whimsical charm by adorning trees and bushes with decorative details.

Wonderfully gifted

Who knew a pumpkin coach made such a wedding card repository?

Vintage crockery is your friend

Fans of Alice In Wonderland will adore its tea-party vibes, whilst Beauty And The Beast lovers will enjoy feeling like they have their very own Mrs Potts, Chip et al at their reception.

That marvellous mouse... 

Simple jars can be upcycled with hessian and buttons into something  little more recognisable. Crafting not your forte? This gorgeous trio of jars is available to buy via Etsy (£7 for three).


Mirror, mirror...

Transform a gorgeous old brass design with beautiful calligraphy - it makes for a stunning way to display your table plan, or a favourite quote.

Seated in style

Equally, this simple-but-stylish place cards are a great way to show your guests where they're sitting.

Table talk

And once they're seated, give them a gorgeous tablecentre to look at - if you have one favourite film, perhaps theme your tables around different characters, or, alternatively, if you love them all, theme each table around a different movie.

Create an unmissable guestbook set-up

We adore this Up-inspired idea - don't you?

Alternatively, opt for something that would make a decorative addition to your home after your wedding day.
