Frequently Asked Questions by Disney Brides

WHAT IS YOUR FEE?
My fee is $200.00 without a rehearsal and $300 with a rehearsal.  I ask for a $100 deposit at the time of booking and the balance on the day of the service.

CAN  I  HAVE  MICKEY OR  MINNIE  PARTICIPATE  IN  MY  SERVICE?
In order to  maintain the reverence and dignity of the marriage ceremony the only Character that can take part in a wedding service is Major Domo. (He was the one who in the story of Cinderella went around and measured the girls feet for the glass slipper). Major Domo presents the rings to be used in the service at the appropriate time as a surprise to everyone.

DO YOU CONDUCT A RELIGIOUS OR A CIVIL SERVICE?
This is your wedding. I want it to be as you wish it to be. We can meet the expectations of most religious backgrounds and heritages. We can do a completely nonreligious service for those who prefer that style or a combination service for those who wish a bit of both. No matter what you choose I try and make it the most beautiful service that your guests have ever seen. I want them saying to each other how  much they enjoyed the wedding.

CAN I WRITE MY OWN SERVICE?
Of course you can. You can write your own service, send me materials to include in your service, or let me write your service after consulting with you. While we try to make the service unique many couples in writing their own service lack the expertise to do so in a manner that is  interesting and special. Some have done a great job but many have not.

CAN I HAVE MY OWN MINISTER CONDUCT MY SERVICE?
Some couples bring their own officiate with varying degrees of success.

CAN I HAVE MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY PARTICIPATE IN THE SERICE?
We encourage you to do so as much as they are comfortable. When you involve others in the service it makes it their wedding as well which is a good thing.

IS IT TRUE THAT A CATHOLIC PRIEST CANNOT DO A DISNEY WEDDING?
The Diocese of Central Florida prohibits  Catholic priests from performing a wedding at any location outside of the church.  The church has written and developed a book titled TOGETHER FOR LIFE THE CATHOLIC WEDDING OUTSIDE OF MASS. When I have a Catholic couple I send them a copy of the book.  They make their selections of Scriptures and prayers.  There is a section in the back of the book to tear out and return to me with their choices.  We do not do Catholic communion in Disney weddings.    The couple may select some of the book, all of the book, or none of the book.  The couple needs to consult with their own parish about having the marriage blessed by the church.

SHOULD I GET MY MARRIAGE LICENSE BY MAIL?
If you do not live in the state of Florida the answer in most cases is Yes if you have at least 30 days before your wedding. It costs  more but it saves you a half day of vacation time that you will want to spend with friends and family or just seeing the sights. I suggest you use the attached form. (It is the same one found in the Disney material.

WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON MISTAKE MADE BY NEWLY WEDS?
They order plane or cruse tickets under her new married name. It takes up to 30 days to get the certified copy of the marriage license needed to change either of their names. Get our honeymoon tickets under your premarital names.
