Disney Bridal Shower Theme

  • Theme Overview

    This is a great shower theme for a couple that has had or will have a relationship milestone at one of the Disney theme parks, such as their engagement, the upcoming wedding, or their honeymoon. This is also a great theme for the bride who adores all things Disney or for the bride that considered a Disney wedding theme.

    Disney characters and their fairy tale stories are great inspiration for planning this bridal shower theme. For example, you can choose a single Disney character, like Cinderella, upon which to base your ideas or go with a broader, all Disney Princess bridal shower theme.

    For a slightly less character oriented Disney theme, take a cue from the World Showcase at Disney's Epcot theme park by combining Disney with an Around the World Theme. Epcot's World Showcase features the following 11 countries:

    • Mexico References to Donald Duck-- as seen in the The Three Caballeros movie-- appear here
    • Norway
    • China References to Mulan and Mushu appear here
    • Germany References to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs appear here
    • Italy References to Pinocchio appear here. Lady & Tramp might be a fitting addition.
    • The American Adventure References to Minnie & Mickey Mouse appear here
    • Japan
    • Morocco References to Jasmine and Aladdin appear here
    • France References to Belle and the Beast appear here
    • United Kingdom References to Alice in Wonderland, Mary Poppins, and Winnie the Pooh appear here
    • Canada

    Listed below are both general and character specific Disney theme ideas.

    Shower Invitations

    Use Disney postcards for invitations. You can find Disney postcards on eBay.

    If you have an appropriate photo, use the Disney photopass site to create photocard invitations.

    Use Disney scrapbook paper and scrapbooking techniques to create shower invitations. You can purchase Disney paper punches from joann.com or laughingplace.com. You can sometimes find Disney punches on eBay as well.

    Shower Decorations

    Decorate different tables or areas for different movies, characters, or Disney theme park attractions. Specific story decoration suggestions are on each Disney character's theme page.

    Purchase or borrow Disney stuffed animals or dolls to use in the decor

    Decorate with Disney balloons. Most party stores carry balloons for different characters

    Shower Games and Activities

    Play these trivia games at your Disney bridal shower.

    Here are some other activities for a Disney wedding shower theme:

    Host a Disney pin trading session just like in the Disney parks. Buy each guest a Disney pin-- this can also serve as the shower favor. Award pins as prizes for other shower games to increase the number of pins that will be available for trade at the shower. The most affordable option is to buy a Disney pin lot on eBay at a cost of $1 to $2 a pin. For the bride, you may want to purchase a special pin from DisneyShopping.com.

    If the shower will run past sunset, hold your own fireworks show-- as is done nightly at the Magic Kingdom.
