Katie grew up on all things Disney. When she met her future husband she knew that converting him into a disney fan was a must! After a few WDW vacations, Disney history lessons, and lots of Disney peer pressure, she finally had her prince charming loving all things Disney as well. After getting engaged in 2008 on a carriage ride through Fort Wilderness, Katie threw out the idea of getting married in the place where they shared their happiest memories. Two years of planning, and a whole bunch of Disney magic later, they had the most amazing Disney wedding on October 2nd, 2010. Now living at home in New England, Katie keeps the Disney romance alive in her home and is constantly planning romantic vacations to the world. She has her own personal blog www.makingmyfairytale.blogspot.com and is thoroughly excited to start writing for the Disney Driven Life.

Every little girl dreams of being a princess. Whether it be Snow White, Belle, Aurora, or Jasmine. Every little girl also dreams of their wedding day. Whether it be big, small, at home, or at an amazing destination, such as Walt Disney World. There are many ways that Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding’s Department make both of these dreams come true for brides. The one that we are going to focus on is the ultimate mode of princess transportation… Cinderella’s Royal Coach.

With its distinct pumpkin shape and adorable while horses, the Cinderella Coach looks almost identical to the one from the animated film. The intricate detailing on the coach is reminiscent of royal carriages we saw used in Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. The bride and groom also get the pleasure of having footmen on hand to drive the coach and to assist them getting in and out. Because honestly, who could stuff all of that crinoline in there with out some help!

I personally did not have the carriage at our wedding. The price tag did not fit into our budget. I do however, know many brides who have used the coach and they have all said nothing but amazing things. The pictures they have are simply stunning. The coach adds a magical Disney reference to their pictures without being overly Disney. Unless you’re an avid Disney fan you wouldn’t think, “Hey! That looks like the coach from ‘Cinderella’.” So for those of you who think the coach is “a little much”, I have to strongly (and kindly) disagree.

And to all those who think that this is just for the bride, you’re wrong! I know many grooms who not only loved riding around in it, but also felt like they really were Prince Charming for the day. They may not admit it to their male friends, but deep down you can just tell.

All in all the coach is the perfect way to get that “WOW” factor and to have some truly memorable and unique memories from your wedding day. It does come with a hefty price tag but if you have room for it in your budget or if its something you have dreamed about since you were a little girl I say do it! I mean let’s face it… Show up to your wedding in a limo?…. Or Cinderella’s Royal Coach?… I think we know who the winner of that battle is!
