Disney Weddings Series: The Memories Collection

It's true that for the right price Disney can make just about all of your wedding dreams a reality. With several package collections and almost limitless customization options Disney Fairytale Weddings have the ability to make grand dreams come true for even the fussiest of Princess. But what if that's not what you're looking for? Is there a Disney Fairytale Wedding option for couples that want a intimate private event?

While many Disney Brides have looked to the Escape Collection for their Disney Weddings with less than 20 guests, the $5,000 minimum can still be difficult for some couple to budget on top of the expense of a Walt Disney World Vacation. What is there then for couples who are looking more for a more personal experience? Is there an option that doesn't include third party guest lists, a buffet with every choice, and dresses to flatter every bridesmaid. The answer is yes! Since 2001 Disney has offered a special package to make those dreams come true too. It's called, the Memories Collection.

Memories Collection Weddings are charming exclusive events for the Bride, Groom, and no more than four guests. The romantic package has a starting price point of $2, 495* and includes just enough to make a special memory:

  • Ceremony Location
  • Fresh floral for the Bride
  • A Violinist for the Ceremony
  • A three (3) consecutive hour limousine charter for transportation or an in-room Romantic Celebration
  • Professional Disney Photographer for (1) hour to capture the Ceremony and Portraits
  • 20 5"x7" Photographic prints
  • An on-site Disney Wedding Coordinator
  • A personalized wedding website
  • Limited Add-on Options

Designed for a weekend escape, these small affairs are available most Fridays through Mondays and can be booked just a couple of months in advance. The Memories Collection offers three romantic location options including the Grand Floridian's Conch Key Marina, the Polynesian's Luau Beach, or the Sunrise Terrace at the Wilderness Lodge.

I love the thought of this most dreamy way to say "I do." Small weddings embrace the true significance of the moment bringing focus off of the extravagant parties and creating an intimate moment of love witnessed by a very select few. Memories Collection events are also extremely popular with couples celebrating their anniversary by renewing their vows.

No matter how big, or small ceremony you may be dreaming of the experts at Disney Fairytale Weddings can help you come up with a pixie dusted plan. Would you enjoy an intimate elopement with your loved one to Walt Disney World? Leave a comment below and let us know which of these romantic venues you think you would chose!

We had our 15th Renewal at Sea Breeze Point over looking the Boardwalk - Beach Club area. Beautiful spot small just a few people but it was so special. With memories to last a life time.

@Bruce & Kim Lawrence, was that planned through the official Disney's Fairytale Weddings department?

I don't understand why Disney Weddings cannot arrange other, even MORE affordable options. Why don't they offer an a la carte type package, with options for between 4 and 20 guests?

I want to do this. Is that the castle visible from Conch Key Marina? If it is, then that would be the location I would choose.

Hi Sasha! Yep! You can see the Castle from the Conch Key location. I stayed in a room overlooking that spot a few years back and it's lovely.
