Question Looking for information on getting married at Disney

Hello! Hope you are all well and staying safe in this weird and wonderful world just now! Iím quite new too the Dibb, had an account for ages but really starting too use it now. So bit of background information,

Hi Iím Abbie from Scotland. We were due too get married June 2020 but obviously COVID reared itís head so we postponed too June 2021. Things arenít looking likely for a Ďnormalí wedding unfortunately. Our wedding was originally going to have in total around 150/160 people. Looking at the way our lockdown rules are we donít think weíll be allowed anymore than 20, with restrictions on music, dancing and social distancing etc.

We have however booked a family holiday too Orlando for September 2022 for three weeks (eeeeek! ) with my parents, my oh parents his sister and husband and there little one who will be 3 when there. We have thought of a possible wedding whilst there... but Disney canít give me prices or ideaís until 16 months too the date. So was wondering if anyone here had got married in Disney maybe with a small amount of people? Any ideas or help would be appreciated!

Abbie x

Hey we got married at the Swan and Dolphin in 2017 with just family their.

We used a service called JustMarry who were brilliant, we got a dedicated wedding planner who was invaluable the day before and of the wedding as my in-laws flight got postponed meaning they didn't arrive until the day of. But Ashley took care of everything and helped rearrange things at the last minute so that we had a first look, and photos before the ceremony so that the in-laws had time to arrive and get changed.

We hired a photography couple that where with us all day and our officant Lon was brilliant two, his wife runs a company that sorts the marriage licenses so we didn't even need to worry about that.

We had a cake delivered to the hotel and for dinner we hired a private room in Disney Springs at STK. This was the best part of the day, the food was great, we got 2 private servers and we bought a drinks package, which with two private servers and 15 adults from Scotland too was well used!

We looked at a Wedding by Disney but decided that it would be too much money. But what we did I still think was very Disney and would do it the same way again (just without the flight delay)

Hi, we are using Just Marry and noticed your comment about the marriage license.

So you didn't have to collect the license from the court? And did you pay extra for this.

So we paid $195 in 2017 from marriedbymail.com. They send out a copy that we got noterised in the UK that didn't cost us anything. Then after the ceremony our officant took the marriage license they get it registered and sent us a noterised copy back a few weeks after.

For us it was 100% worth it to not have to worry about going to the court house on what was basically our honeymoon with our 18 month old at the time as well.

Might be worth using then. Although i noticed they don't offer refunds which might be a problem atm.

So I would just message and ask for more detail on the policy. Its a small family business, the wife does the marriage certificates and her husband is an officiant (he did our wedding) and they are both lovely people.

I would expect if you had to delay they would be able to accommodate you.

Sorry to be a pain, but one other thing i noticed was that you had to print out the form they send, and get a solicitor to fill out the rest (At added cost i guess)

Did you do that?

If we went ourselves, that part would be included in the Clerk costs of $86, so why do they pass that part of the cost and effort to you?
