I enjoyed the show very much; watched it with my DD13 who isn't much of a romantic, but I saw her eyes twinkle a little bit.  We especially loved the Alice in Wonderland Tea Party--the cake was so cool!  It would be fun to just have that party with some girlfriends.

$70,000 would sure be a nice down payment on a house, wouldn't it?  I'd rather give that to my kids if I happened to have $70,000 laying around!  Was it my imagination, or did that groom already looked beat down by that bride?  She was obviously going to get her way no matter what!  I hope he's prepared to do that the rest of their lives!  ( Frankly, he looked about 15 to me and in no position to be getting married-but what do I know?! )  LOL

That Alice in Wonderland tea party cake was spectacular.

And fillings that include "passion fruit mousse" and "Bailey's Irish Cream Mousse" , oh be still my heart....

Becky, I noticed the same thing about the featured couple's groom, how he had, shall we say, "few words to say" at least in how the show was edited for air.  $70K, whoo...  That's most of a starter home or half to one-third of a lot of homes today.  It's a couple of Mercedes-Benz's .

They said you could spend up to hundreds of thousands for a wedding.  To be married in front of Cinderella's Castle really does cost mega-bucks, I think it has to be done in the early hours when the park is closed for guests before opening but someone do please correct me on this.  Can you imagine trying to make Cinderella's Royal Table for a breakfast character dining Priority Seating but you arrive to find a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding going on right in front of the Castle?

How would a guy plan a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding?  What inputs into the planning process do the guys have, I wonder?

Besides Rich do you think any guys are reading this thread? hahahaha!

I wonder if they do nighttime weddings in front of the castle in the off season when the park closes early?

I guess Disney doesn't have an exclusive on how much you can spend for a wedding.  DH went to a wedding of a multimillionare recently and he figured all totaled they spent about $100,000!  The groom actually took members of his wedding party to Las Vegas for an all-expense paid bachelor party, so I'm including those expenses, too.  That's crazy money!

Just get on any major highway, and eventually it will dead-end in a Disney parking area large enough to have its own climate, populated by large nomadic families who have been trying to find their cars since the Carter administration.

I have seen pics of a wedding set up in front of the castle at night, so they must do them.  Besides, you can't get married in the park during park hours, so most of htem must take place at night.
Also, some people I don't think realize that you can get married at disney for as little as 4000.00.  That includes a weeks stay including park hoppers.  That is what my wedding will cost approximately.  Also, you can marry "illegally" there as well for a lot cheaper.  By illegally, I mean that you don't actually go through disney, you get married in a suite and bring your own officiant.  Disney doesn't like it when you do this though. :D
By the way-be nice to the guy-I don't know too many men that would step in the way of a girls dream wedding.  My future husband wanted to and we tended to disagree over a lot which is why we went with a disney wedding in the first place.  We don't have to plan anything now!! :idea:

I wonder how much of the 70K went for the wedding dinner.  The girl couldn't make up her mind what she wanted and wanted the guests to make their own choices.  Instead of putting the choices on  the reply card which I've seen before, she had something called "Crown Service" or something like that.  300 meals were made for 100 guests so that the guests could decide that night which of the 3 offerings they wanted.  I hope the extra 200 meals were able to be donated or something.

Disney does indeed donate unsold/unused food to the needy -- I can't remember the name of the organization... Second Harvesters, perhaps? Even if that isn't the name, I know they do not waste the food, it is donated.

I loved this special!  I hope they re-air it soon since my VCR cut off with about 3 minutes left in the program.  I want to re-tape the whole thing.

Wow, $70K is one chunck of change.  I can assure you that all Disney wedding don't cost that much--I know mine didn't!

I actually "know" one of the brides (the one with the orange wedding theme) from the internet, and she said that Disney added a lot of stuff for their wedding so they could showcase it.  For instance, they had cut the sushi station, but Disney added it back in for free to show it on TV.  Their wedding cake was also way bigger than the one they ordered.  

As far as castle wedding go, the official minimum for those (at least in 2003 when I got married, but not at the castle) is $42000 with Disney.  My event manager did tell me that the brides who do those typically go way over the minimum though.  They typically take place at night after the park has closed.

It's baaaaaaaaaaaack......!

All times are Eastern time zone, U.S., be sure to check your local cable/satellite listings for exact local time and channel number closest to you.  One hour.  Program your VCR, DVR or TiVo.  This is a show that is a rerun, not a new original episode.  Food Network Disney shows repeat much less often than comparable Travel Channel shows.

Scroll back for earlier reactions and responses to earlier airings of this show.  Add yours by hitting "Reply".  Happy viewing, happy recording.  (Pssst...  If you know of any Disney brides actively planning their events, let them know about this show coming up, it's a rerun, but still loads of vicarious fun to be had watching it. )
