This week’s episode of “Inside Disney Weddings” features an exclusive interview with celebrity wedding planner David Tutera on his Couture Collection of Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings.
Tutera gives “Inside Disney Weddings” details on the origin and future of the collection, which comprises four distinct wedding “looks” that offer magazine-worthy decor and Tutera’s personal touch at a fraction of the cost of a celebrity wedding.
“I knew that I had the expertise and the history of doing spectacular weddings for people who have money,” says Tutera. “Now the trick was to find a way to create and develop the ideas and concepts that could be executed for girls who don’t have very deep pockets. It’s about making every girl feel wonderful and not feeling that they can’t have something beautiful if they can’t afford it. My goal is to empower women to feel amazing no matter how they look, what they do, how much money they make. They should have a wonderful wedding, and Disney can definitely execute that for them on all levels.”
Hosts Scott Sheppard and Carrie Hayward also share a comprehensive overview of the Couture Collection, complete with details on how much they cost, what they require, and what the packages do—and don’t—include.
