Here’s a look at last weekend’s Festival of Brides at the Disneyland Hotel. Unlike the recent bridal showcase at Walt Disney World, this one was not sponsored by Disney, so there were many different vendors set up in the exhibition hall—which made for some interesting contrasts! However, this is in line with the differences between Disneyland and Walt Disney World weddings. Disneyland has far fewer restrictions on using outside vendors and doesn’t offer as many in-house services as Disney World does.
Disney-specific wedding planning info was limited to a few brochures, but there were planners on hand to answer all your questions. To me, the festival’s biggest benefit for potential Disney brides was the chance to see table mockups and decor in person—including the entire Sleeping Beauty Pavilion, which was done up for a gorgeous tea party-themed reception.

And then there was stuff like this…
…and this, which caused more than a few double takes and an equal amount of creeped-out shivers.
We were told we could only take 1 picture of this candy buffet, so of course we took 2!

On the way out… free desserts!
