Carly, Editor & Founder of The Disney Wedding Blog, found her Prince Charming while working at Walt Disney World on the College Program.  Both lifelong Disney fans, Carly & Kyle, got married at Walt Disney World on a $20,000 budget.  Carly discusses their destination wedding planning experience and highlights her best tips and advice when planning an amazing yet affordable Disney wedding. 

Carly tells us there is a perception that Disney weddings are plastic and cookie-cutter, Mickey Mouse events, but that couldn't be farther from the truth.  The Disney Wedding Blog is the unofficial center for all things Disney weddings. The site is an inspiration and information resource for couples planning a wedding, proposal, honeymoon, or vow renewal at any of the Disney theme parks or resort areas.  It is a fan blog for all types of Disney Weddings and is not affiliated with Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons or The Walt Disney Company in any way.  Carly is dedicated to making the journey to a Disney wedding a lot easier.

Carly shares her resources including online Disney forums, her photographers and Disney-area vendors, and where she found her beautiful $250 wedding dress.  She talks about her extraordinary honeymoon five months before her wedding as a planning and celebration trip and what her guests will remember the most. We will hear about the most unexpected part of their celebration and what she would have done differently.  Carly had high expectations and Disney delivered the fairy tale wedding she always dreamed about.
