Disney Social Media Moms Platinum Wedding Soiree
I’ve been trying to organize my thoughts from the conference since we got home. So much fun and learning was jam-packed in those 2 days and I want to share it in the best possible way. On our first evening we attended the Platinum Wedding Soiree at the beautiful wedding pavillion at the Grand Floridian.
I’ve been married for longer than they’ve been offering weddings at Walt Disney World, but that hasn’t stopped me from fantasizing about the opportunity to renew our vows there. I never really imagined that I would actually get close to it, never mind see inside.
What a cute idea for a wedding and my children are still eating the candy that I brought back with me.
Here I am finally meeting some other mom bloggers. From the left is Kate from The Guavalicious Life, me(at that moment I’m thinking that I still can’t believe I am actually here!) Natalie from Twiniversity, and Melissa from Sippy Cup Mom. Sissy loves the bridal veil Minnie ears. She wanted a pair on our last trip, but I was a mean mom and told her no.
Then we were ushered inside. It was so lovely and just about the most perfect place for a wedding.
There have been 40,000 weddings at Walt Disney World since they started 20 years ago.
Then we were introduced to Michael Shettel. He leads the design team at Alfred Angelo. He was there to introduce their new line of Disney Fairy Tale Wedding attire. Besides bridal gowns, they will offer attire for bridesmaids and flower girls also. There is an entire wedding collection.
This is the Cinderella Platinum Anniversary Gown. It was just gorgeous. Who wouldn’t feel like a princess in this beautiful gown?
This is Carley Roney from TheKnot.com. I would have been all over that website if it had been available when I was married back in the stone age. According to her website, Walt Disney World is the number one honeymoon destination in the continental USA.
Then we were treated to the energetic David Tuterra from WEtv’s My Fair Wedding.
The evening was topped off by a vow renewal of this cute couple, Kristen and Greg. They were married 2 years ago at Walt Disney World. (It will be our 28th wedding anniversary this year, so if Disney Weddings is looking for a couple to renew their vows, we are available. Just sayin’)
After they left in their coach, we all walked over to the beach between the wedding pavillion and the hotel and had an incredible dinner on the shores of Bay Lake.
Yes, that is Space Mountain in the background!
Somehow I missed taking pictures of our dinner, but I didn’t miss the dessert table.
