The Best Disney Quotes for your Wedding Ceremony Reading
Whether you choose lyrics from your favourite Disney song, or a quote from one of the ever wise characters, there's something for every Disney lover here.
Cinderella Disney wedding ideas
Cinderella is one of our absolute Disney baes; we relate to her on so many levels - getting a whole new outfit for a night out, losing our possessions at the end of the night... the list goes on.<br /><br />The song that she and Prince Charming dance to is one of Disney's most romantic, so it makes sense that the lyrics lend themselves perfectly to a wedding ceremony reading.<br /><br />"So this is love <br />So this is love<br />So this is what makes life divine<br />I'm all aglow<br />And now I know<br />The key to all heaven is mine<br />My heart has wings<br />And I can fly, I'll touch ev'ry star in the sky<br />So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of<br />So this is love"<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/real-weddings/spring/wedding-theme-cinderella-style/20539.html" target="_blank">READ MORE: Wedding theme: Cinderella styling</a>
Bambi wedding ideas
We have to say, Bambi isn't a film we automatically associate with wedding readings (it mostly reminds of us the devastation when his mum died), but re-watching it with our flower girls made us realise that the song "Love is a Song" has some great lyrics for a wedding reading, that we definitely want to steal.<br /><br />"Love is a song that never ends<br />Life may be swift and fleeting<br />Hope may die yet love's beautiful music<br />Comes each day like the dawn<br /><br />Love is a song that never ends<br />One simple theme repeating<br />Like the voice of a heavenly choir<br />Love's sweet music flows on"<br /><br />It's not the most obvious Disney reference in the world, so check out our gallery for <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/ideas/mood-boards/magical-ways-to-include-even-more-disney-in-your-wedding-day/22048.html" target="_blank">magical ways to include even more Disney in your wedding day.</a>
Pocahontas Disney wedding reading
John Smith certainly had a way with words; this song that he sang to Pocahontas brings a tear to our eyes - have this reading at your wedding and all of your guests will be reaching for their hankies. <br /><br />"If I never knew you<br />If I never felt this love<br />I would have no inkling of<br />How precious life can be<br />And if I never held you<br />I would never have a clue<br />How at last I'd find in you<br />The missing part of me<br />If I never knew you<br />I'd be safe but half as real<br />Never knowing I could feel<br />A love so strong and true<br />I'm so grateful to you<br />I'd have lived my whole life through<br />Lost forever<br />If I never knew you"<br /><br />If Pocahontas is your Disney princess of choice, check out the <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/dresses-and-style/wedding-dresses/disney-inspired-wedding-dresses-for-2017/22057-10.html" target="_blank">wedding dress inspired by her</a>.
Nightmare Before Christmas wedding inspiration
A quick YouTube search of these lyrics from Nightmare Before Christmas throws up countless comments of people saying that this is what they'll be walking down the aisle to, and will be having as their reading too, and we can totally see why. The words are sweet enough to melt even the blackest of hearts, and how spookily gorgeous would a Nightmare Before Christmas themed wedding be? <br /><br />"My dearest friend, if you don't mind<br />I'd like to join you by your side<br />Where we can gaze into the stars<br />And sit together, now and forever<br />For it is plain as anyone can see<br />We're simply meant to be"<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/planning/venues/15-haunted-wedding-venues-for-halloween/20187.html" target="_blank">READ MORE: 15 haunted wedding venues in the UK</a>
Disney wedding inspiration from Tangled
Tangled is a relatively new Disney tale, but it's still chock-a-block with wedding day inspiration. Take the lyrics from I See The Light, a sweet ditty about how meeting the love of your life opens your eyes to all the beauty in the world. <br /><br />"And at last I see the light<br />And it's like the fog has lifted<br />And at last I see the light<br />And it's like the sky is new<br />And it's warm and real and bright<br />And the world has somehow shifted<br />All at once everything looks different<br />Now that I see you"<br /><br />If you love Rapunzel, you'll absolutely want to see the <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/honeymoons/beachwear/you-can-now-get-disney-princess-bikinis-for-your-honeymoon-and-it-is-everything/22314.html" target="_blank">Disney bikini for your honeymoon</a> inspired by her pretty purple dress.
Peter Pan wedding day inspiration
If you ask us, Peter Pan is one of the most magical of the Disney films out there, from the sprinkling of pixie dust, to the concept of never growing up, it's all so romantic. <br /><br />"Think of the happiest things<br />It's the same as having wings<br />Take the path that moonbeams make<br />If the moon is still awake<br />You'll see him wink his eye<br />You can fly, you can fly!<br />You can fly!<br /><br />Up you go with a heigh and ho<br />To the stars beyond the blue<br />There's a Never Land waiting for you<br />Where all your happy dreams come true<br />Every dream that you dream will come true<br />When there's a smile in your heart<br /><br />There's no better time to start<br />Think of all the joy you'll find<br />When you leave the world behind<br />And bid your cares goodbye<br />You can fly, you can fly!<br />You can fly, you can fly!<br />You can fly"
Disney's inspired wedding reading from Mulan
This Mulan Disney reading is so heartwarming - have a read through and we bet you'll find yourself thinking of your other half more than a few times. <br /><br />"Baby, I knew at once that you were meant for me<br />Deep in my soul I know that I'm your destiny<br />Though you're unsure, why fight the tide?<br />Don't think so much, let your heart decide<br /><br />Baby, I see your future and it's tied to mine<br />I look in your eyes and see you searching for a sign<br />But you'll never fall 'til you let go<br />Don't be so scared of what you don't know<br /><br />True to your heart<br />You must be true to your heart<br />That's when the heavens will part<br />And baby, shower you with my love<br /><br />Open your eyes<br />Your heart can tell you no lies<br />And when you're true to your heart<br />I know it's gonna lead you straight to me<br />True to your heart<br />You must be true to your heart<br />That's when the heavens will part<br />And baby, shower you with my love"<br /><br />While Mulan spent most of her film dressed as a male warrior, <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/dresses-and-style/wedding-dresses/disney-inspired-wedding-dresses-for-2017/22057-8.html" target="_blank">Alfred Angelo's Mulan inspired Disney wedding dress</a> will have you feeling all woman.
The Princess and the Frog Disney wedding inspiration
These lyrics come from Neyo's song Never Knew I Needed, and if you find the reading a bit long for your ceremony, this could be a lovely <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/planning/entertainment/unusual-first-dance-songs-the-ultimate-playlist/22202.html" target="_blank">unusual first dance song</a> instead. <br /><br />Our favourite lyric? "My accidental happily ever after" - hands up if you never saw your fiance coming, but he's changed your life for the better.<br /><br />For the way you changed my plans<br />For being the perfect distraction<br />For the way you took the idea that I had<br />Of everything that I wanted to have<br />And made me see<br />There was something missing<br />For the ending of my first begin<br />And for the rare and unexpected friend<br />For the way<br />You're something that I'd never choose<br />But at the same time something I don't wanna lose<br />And never wanna be without<br />Ever again<br />You're the best thing I never knew I needed<br />So when you appeared I had no idea<br />You're the best thing I never knew I needed<br />Now it's so clear I need you here always<br />My accidental happily<br />Ever after<br />The way you smile and how you comfort me<br />With your laughter<br />I must admit you were not a part of my book<br />But now if you open it up and take a look<br />You're the beginning and the end<br />Of every chapter<br />You're the best thing I never knew I needed<br />So when you appeared I had no idea<br />You're the best thing I never knew I needed<br />Now it's so clear I need you here always
Disney wedding inspiration from The Rescuers
The Rescuers is rather a niche Disney film to seek wedding inspiration from, but it's not without it's endearing readings. The lyrics form Tomorrow is Another Day has some heartfelt messages in that wouldn't be out of place as a wedding reading. <br /><br />"Come along, <br />Til there is sun shine shining when we find the silver lining,<br />Come along.<br />Sing a song, when today becomes tomorrow, <br />Weather fine, joy or sorrow, sing a song.<br />Is it wrong? <br />To put our hopes together and wish for something better, is it wrong?<br />To belong, to face the future with another who means more than any other is to belong.<br />We'll paint the grey clouds with pretty rainbow hues,<br />And we'll brush the gloom away and save it for a rainy day, rainy day,<br />Oh to save.<br />When troubles cast a shadow and shadows make the sun afraid to stay, <br />It's ok, til there'll be sunshine shining and we'll find the silver lining another day.<br />Tomorrow is another day, how I hope you'll always stay."
Finding Nemo wedding inspiration
Little guests are likely to recognise this reading as soon as you utter "P. Sherman" and while it doesn't start off being particularly romantic, we can't help our lips from wobbling when we hear "I look at you and I'm home."<br /><br />"Please don't go away. Please? <br />No one's ever stuck with me for so long before. <br />And if you leave... if you leave... I just, I remember things better with you. <br />I do, look. P. Sherman, forty-two... forty-two... I remember it, I do. <br />It's there, I know it is, because when I look at you, I can feel it. <br />And I look at you, and I'm home."<br /><br />Check out this <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/ideas/mood-boards/magical-ways-to-include-even-more-disney-in-your-wedding-day/22048-28.html" target="_blank">Finding Nemo wedding cake</a> if you love that little orange fish as much as we do!
The Little Mermaid wedding inspiration
We don't like to be biased, but The Little Mermaid is probably our favourite Disney film; we adore headstrong Ariel, her loyal gang of pals and her chiselled love interest too. <br /><br />Our favourite line from the film? "You're the one, the one I've been looking for."<br /><br />Sure, it's rather a short quote for a reading, but it could definitely be included in your big day somewhere.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/planning/cakes/21-totally-magical-disney-wedding-cakes/21407.html" target="_blank">READ MORE: 21 totally magical Disney wedding cakes</a>
Aladdin inspired wedding ideas
Aladdin might not be our fave Disney film, but is there a more romantic Disney wedding song than A Whole New World? We think not. <br /><br />Everyone at your wedding will immediately recognise the gorgeous song if you use it as reading, and what better way to start married life off than in a whole new world with the love of your life?<br /><br />"A whole new world<br />A new fantastic point of view<br />No one to tell us no<br />Or where to go<br />Or say we're only dreaming<br />A whole new world<br />A dazzling place I never knew<br />But when I'm way up here<br />It's crystal clear<br />That now I'm in a whole new world with you"<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/dresses-and-style/bridal-lingerie/you-can-now-get-disney-inspired-lingerie-for-your-first-night-and-we-dont-know-what-to-think/22367.html" target="_blank">READ MORE: You Can Now Get Disney Inspired Lingerie for your First Night</a>
Sleeping Beauty wedding inspiration
Imagine being woken by true love's kiss, rather than your horrible alarm, what a dream! <br /><br />Sleeping Beauty is one of the most romantic Disney films out there, and the song Prince Phillip and Aurora dance to in the forest is a lovely choice for a Disney wedding reading. <br /><br />"I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream<br />I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam<br />Yet I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem<br />But if I know you, I know what you'll do<br />You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream"<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/planning/essentials/now-you-can-get-married-by-starlight-at-disneys-magic-kingdom/22062.html%20" target="_blank">READ MORE: Now You Can Get Married by Starlight at Disney’s Magic Kingdom</a>
Wedding inspiration from Disney's Up
Those Disney characters really do have a way with words. We find ourselves trying to hold it together each time we hear the words "you will always be my greatest adventure" and can see them fitting perfectly into a wedding reading. <br /><br />"You and me... we're in a club now.<br />You will always be my greatest adventure."<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/planning/essentials/your-wedding-day-in-disney-gifs/21409.html" target="_blank">READ MORE: Your wedding day in Disney gifs</a>

Beauty and the Beast wedding inspiration
Beauty and the Beast is everywhere at the moment, and we loved the live action version so much we found ourselves coming up with <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/ideas/mood-boards/27-magical-beauty-and-the-beast-wedding-ideas/22299.html" target="_blank">ways to have a Beauty and the Beast themed wedding</a>.<br /><br />Any lyrics from Tale as Old as Time would be perfect for your wedding reading - just give the song a listen and wait for the inspiration to flow. We particularly love the John Legend and Ariana Grande version that came out in 2017.<br />
Frozen wedding inspiration
Frozen took the world by storm, and our favourite line from the whole movie is a short but sweet one, spoken by everyone's favourite snowman, Olaf.<br /><br />"Some people are worth melting for."<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/dresses-and-style/bridal-lingerie/you-can-now-get-disney-inspired-lingerie-for-your-first-night-and-we-dont-know-what-to-think/22367.html" target="_blank">READ MORE: Elsa inspired lingerie for your first night</a>
