Need advice and ideas

I was wondering if people have any ideas on ways to make the wedding more personal. We would like hints of Disney and starwars and little things we like but wondering if anyone had any ideas on how we can include these and anything else that had worked ?

Our music was all Disney while we ate, and we walked in to Be Our Guest 🙂 our main theme was oktoberfest so every 15/20 mins we had the Oktoberfest song play amongst the Disney to encourage everyone to cheers like they do at the festival! Our cake was themed this way and our decorations included gingerbread hearts! My earrings were mickey shaped diamonds, but my shoes were custom made Oktoberfest themed too!
Our centrepiece flowers were in beer steins instead of vases, and put little pots of mini pretzels on the tables 😋 x

Rather than having table numbers you could name them after movies or characters? Xx

I have Mickey head flower pins for my bouquet. Table names are Disney movies. But we have Cadbury purple for our colour scheme.

We had little Lego figurines of Star Wars and superhero’s, it doubled up as favours for guests which was a real hit!

It will be personal, as it's your day, but to make sure it's personal, make a speech yourself? Choose a special song for the first dance, walking down the isle etc

We did an Alice in wonderland theme, made our flowers out of paper (both to save money and because my husband gets bad hay fever) put the centre pieces in tea pots. Our cake topper was a teacup with flowers coming out of it and everyone got a tea cup to take home. I think it’s all of the little touches that bring everything together 🙂

Both myself and my fiance are karate instructors, so our colour scheme is black and white to signify the journey from white belt to black belt and we're having cupcakes made with different coloured ribbon on them from white to black.

Include it on your cake? If you look up wedding cakes that include it your ideas.. also I had a song from Star Wars in my music set for signing the register x

We had our first dance musical score and lyrics iced on the sides of our cake, and the music score as the background of our table numbers. Lots of my guests were from the entertainment/music industry so the subtle hints were all spotted and appreciated x

We're incorporating things subtly. On our cake and the favours and also the centrepieces x

Pinterest is the best place for ideas like this - I've got LOADS of Harry Potter related ideas from there!

I used places we love to visit in Yorkshire for each table we included our favourite ale bottles from those places with a white rose and a Yorkshire flag and a postcard from each place with a rustic decoration x

You can get stormtrooper glass charms for the stem of the glass from a company called Meadow Design. They’re fab!!!

We are having a similar wedding: Disney, Star Wars, Star Trek, game of thrones, just have little elements of all the things that make you a couple incorporated in your wedding from charms, guest books, table names etc you can have multi themes without having a theme ☺️

We're planning to name all our tables and include pictures of the relevant item all personal to us and are thinking of then auctioning them during the evening for charity (can't say too much about the items in case anyone sees this!)

Instead of looking to outside influences maybe look to who you are as a couple and what that represents and go from there.

Have each table a different theme - but each theme personal to you both, so different Disney films of your favourite ones etc then can intertwine then with the cake and invitations too and maybe even the flowers ☺️

We are having a Disney themed wedding. Our theme is in our tables, cake etc but nothing too OTT.

We chose the lyrics from nightmare before Christmas as a reading. Disney songs would work too.

You could do a Alice in wonderland theme tea party with tables named after the characters teapots and cups as center pieces little drink favours with “drink me” or biscuits with “eat me”

Wedding favours maybe or place settings/seating plan/table decorations? Wedding I was at recently the tables were named after different cars which I think were because of the groom's interest in cars. If you're having an instant camera/disposable camera/photo booth you could provide Disney and star wars themed props for the photos?
