Simple Ways to Host a More Eco-Friendly Wedding
Reusable Wedding Favors
Instead of opting to gift guests with items that will ultimately be thrown away, gift something that they will continue to use for years to come—throughout their Disney visit and even when they get back home. Not only is this a sustainable gift option, it is a memorable one which will continue to remind your wedding guests of your special day.
We love Corkcicle as a wedding favor because, it’s a sustainable gift, but it’s also stylish and gives you the option to customize the drinkware and even pick from unique Disney designs.
Pick a wedding venue that already looks stunning with minimal added décor. Any of our Disney park venues offer picturesque backdrops from Italy Isola, to Sleeping Beauty Castle, and more. No need to completely transform a venue to make it standout!
At Disney, we offer over 50 unique wedding venues. Explore some of our selection.

At Disney, couples have access to our world-renowned Disney chefs who can help curate a meal that, not only is delicious, but also accommodates dietary restrictions and sustainable options.
