Add a dash of Disney magic to your wedding ceremony and vows with these quotes and moments from some of our favorite Disney movie couples.

Cinderella, 1950 (cropped scene)


Cinderella and Prince Charming’s royal wedding has been inspiring couples for decades! Attended by the couple's closest friends and family, the elaborate wedding happened mostly off screen. Two bluebirds held Cinderella’s veil as the couple left the church (something not easy to replicate, but easy to pay homage to with some stylish embroidery) and were whisked away in a romantic horse-drawn carriage. (Cinderella)








“I promise. And when I promise something, I never, ever break that promise.” -- Rapunzel, Tangled

“By the power vested in me, I now pronounce ya’ll Frog and Wife. Get to it, Hop-along, give your lovely bride some sugar!” -- Mama Odie


This cute variation on the traditional “You may now kiss the bride!” comes from Mama Odie, who officiated a sweet outdoor ceremony for Prince Naveen and Tiana while they’re both still frogs. These sweethearts also celebrate with a second formal ceremony in a church, so that friends and family can attend…  (The Princess and The Frog)










“Because, when I look at you, I can feel it. And I look at you and I’m home.” -- Dori, Finding Nemo

Ariel and Prince Eric are joined by the prince’s adorable sheepdog, Max, on their wedding day. These two aren’t the only couple to want to include a pet in their wedding ceremony! It’s a trend that’s becoming more common, especially for nontraditional ceremonies like theirs… which was on a large boat so that Ariel’s friends could attend. (The Little Mermaid)








“Even if we're apart, I'll always be with you.” -- Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh

Up, 2009 (cropped scene)



Family all around! Carl and Ellie’s traditional wedding was held inside a church, with a member of the clergy officiating, but we can easily imagine them choosing a more casual wedding instead, with one of Ellie’s rambunctious and loving family members performing the ceremony. Carl’s family is a little less… enthusiastic. (Up)









“To face the future with another, who means more than any other, is to be loved… We'll paint the grey clouds, with pretty rainbow hues, and we'll brush the gloom away, and save it for a rainy day.” -- From Tomorrow is Another Day, Shelby Flint, The Rescuers







Image is a screenshot from the Disney film Robin Hood, it shows Robin and Maid Marian leaving the church as happy newlyweds

Robin Hood, 1973 (cropped scene)


Robin Hood’s moonlit proposal to Maid Marian, with a lotus flower tied to fit around her finger, has been making romantics swoon since the early 70s. Who needs a ring when you have a dreamy, spontaneous moment like that? The two lovers made their marriage official in a small church, in the company of all their woodland friends. Flowers make another important appearance, with Marian holding a gorgeous bouquet of fresh cut wildflowers that’s later caught by Sis Rabbit, Skippy’s older sister (much to Skippy’s dismay).  (Robin Hood)









“Love is putting someone else’s needs before yours.” -- Olaf, Frozen






Image is a screenshot from the Disney film The Incredibles, Elastigirl and Mr. Incredible stand in front of the clergy member on their wedding day

The Incredibles, 2004 (cropped scene)


“You are my greatest adventure… and I almost missed it.” -- Mr. Incredible


Elastigirl married Mr. Incredible in a beautiful and traditional ceremony… Well, after Mr. Incredible actually showed up. He may have had his reasons, but he was very, very late to the altar and almost missed that adventure, too! Luckily things worked out, because these two (and their playful banter) are adorable together. (The Incredibles)
