    Disney, Wedding + Engagement

    Why We Postponed Our Disney Wedding…

    Wedding Bells Are Ringing (or at least they will in 2022 for us)  👰🏼

    It took me a while to finally sit and write this post as every time I start thinking about my dream wedding, I get a little emotional. ICYMI – we got engaged in February 2020 right before COVID hit the US and while our engagement and proposal was something out of a fairytale…the events that followed were anything but. We had such a magical time at Disney Aulani getting engaged on the beach and right away we knew we wanted to plan our dream Disney Wedding at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.

    Then we get home…we begin the wedding planning process and we begin chatting with our Disney Wedding consultant to plan our fairytale nuptials. While we were planning we were continuing to be optimistic hoping that ’14 days to slow the spread’ would be long forgotten by the time our May 2021 wedding rolled around but as weeks turned into months it became obvious that COVID wasn’t going anywhere and like many couples it was time to make a decision…do we postpone or do we continue on.

    The brings us to our decision…after carefully reviewing CDC guidelines and Walt Disney World guidelines we decided 2021 wasn’t our time to get married and instead made the tough decision to postpone till May 2022…so here’s some factors that contributed to our decision and some of our feelings…I figured this would be a cathartic exercise to express the sadness and frustration I (as well as so many other people have been feeling).


    General Concerns

    Before I dive into the Disney COVID guidelines which was a big factor in our decision to postpone our wedding it’s first important to note the overall feelings Mike and I had regarding continuing on with the wedding as planned.

    A big factor was that fully plan on having a big wedding with family members that vary in age and vary with health concerns…the last thing we want is for anyone to get sick at our wedding or feel a sense of obligation to attend even if they don’t feel comfortable being around crowds of people or traveling etc…we want everyone to feel happy and carefree, we don’t want a pandemic and nervous feelings clouding our day and everyone’s experience. Since our families are from the East Coast, everyone would pretty much need to board a plane or drive to Orlando for the wedding so we felt with the uncertainty in the world around COVID it still was too early to ask people to travel and leave the safety of their home for us, it felt selfish and not right.

    Another huge factor for us was cost…COVID has caused financial impacts on a lot of people, and out of concern for our guests we knew asking people to pay to travel and stay at a hotel while we still await the jobs market to recuperate wasn’t the right thing to do.


    Now to get to Disney Wedding Guidelines…which also greatly impacted our decision to postpone…

    I want to note we fully understand these guidelines are for overall guest safety and health, I think it’s great Disney Wedding’s are trying to find a way to still allow couples to have their Happily Ever After and plenty of couples are continuing to have their wedding at WDW with these guidelines…we just felt it wasn’t a fit for us and wanted to hold out for normalcy.

    Mask Requirement

    Currently everyone attending and participating in a Disney Wedding must wear a mask at all times except as the bride and groom walk dow the aisle and exchange vows…other than that masks are required for guests, photos, in between reception and cocktail hour etc. Personally if I am spending a ton of hair, makeup, my dream venue etc I want to have no aspect of COVID in my wedding memories, especially a mask, and since we both agreed this was not a memory we wanted in our photos, videos etc we knew we wanted to postpone until masks are fully gone and the world is back to normal (or as normal as we can hope).

    Guest Count

    Mike has a large family and we anticipate 100-150 guests, right now Disney for our venue was limiting guest count to 25 which simply wouldn’t work for us so that was a big factor as well. We are hoping once things become normal, the regular guest counts can resume.

    No Characters

    One of my favorite parts about Disney and once of the aspects I am most excited about for my Disney Wedding is having Mickey + Minnie at our reception! Unfortunately for overall health + safety guidelines character experiences are not available at your wedding as they don’t want guests hugging or touching the characters.

    So What’s Next?

    So here we are…we had sent out our Save The Dates, we had begun planning our big day, my dress is sitting in a warehouse waiting for me to walk down the aisle in it and we are sitting waiting for the world to go back to normal. Disney Weddings only allows you to book exactly one year from the date you want so unfortunately to book for May 2022 we need to wait till May 2021…sad to think our wedding would of been this year but we have to wait another year and a half…but I don’t think anyone could have predicted the world being this upside down and uncertain for this long…we sure didn’t, we waited till December to make the decision to postpone as we kept holding out hope.

    We feel sad but are optimistic things will brighten up soon. We just bought our first home so we will take this time we would’ve been wedding planning to instead renovate, design + make our house a home! We know there’s a lot going on in the world and our wedding being moved isn’t the most tragic thing to happen but we can’t help but feel a bit sad and helpless because we still don’t know what the future holds or when or if life will ever return to normal…praying for some magic + pixie dust in the future and our love goes out to brides and grooms to be encountering the same struggle as us…lots of tough decisions with what should be a happy time.

    Hello To A Bright 2021…

    ✨ HELLO 2021 ✨

    Let’s be honest, 2020 has been a doozy and 2021 is off to a rocky start but despite the world being a little overwhelming right now, I began thinking of what I’d like to accomplish this year, what to look forward to and also reflect on what 2020 taught us. There were growing pains we experienced as a country – from social justice issues to climate concerns to political mayhem to COVID and more so while I continue to process the ever changing saga that is everyday in the current world I know what I can control is myself, my actions, my future + my impact on the world.

    So what am I personally looking forward to in 2021? Well A LOT!

    My wedding got postponed which was a tough decision and for another blog post…stay tuned so 2021 we are focusing on moving forward with our lives by buying our first HOME. We felt is was the logical next step so we can begin planning our future while our wedding is on hold for the moment.

     1. House Hunting – we are looking to find our dream home within the next few months + I know that will be a fun way to kick off 2021. I can’t wait to find the home of our dreams and make it our own with fun design choices etc. Most of all I am excited about more space for my office and content creation…and my closet.

    The next thing I am excited for is to continue to grow not just my blog, MissyOnMadison but also my marketing agency!

     2- Growing My Business – My goal is to continue to add to my client roster and help amazing brands and founders grow their businesses. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients grow their social presence, website traffic + more so we want to expand that success by adding new clients to our agency for 2021!

    ICYMI running MRT Media Management is my full time job ♥

    Next thing I am looking forward to? Focusing on my overall health. That would be physical, mental etc. 2020 was pretty stressful for us all and I don’t know about you, but I have been having a hard time dealing with an almost year lockdown, having to skip all my exciting engagement and wedding moments and postponing my entire wedding for another year and a half basically. This leads me to needing a little self care love + focusing on my overall wellness.

     3 – Focus On My Health – My goal is to take time to work out a little everyday, continue to focus on eating healthy + also take mental health breaks. Whether it be yoga, meditation or going for daily walks – every little bit helps.

    ✨ What are some of your goals for 2021? ✨

    REVOLVE Holiday Looks…

    House Of Harlow Dress || Red Heels || Gucci Bag


    I can’t believe how quick this year has gone and that Christmas is just days away! It feels like forever ago since life was normal pre-masks, pre-COVID, pre-staying at home etc. This holiday season is definitely different this year when it comes to going places, seeing people and overall how we are in the world but that doesn’t mean there can’t still be plenty of holiday spirit. Personally, something that puts me in the holiday spirit is dressing up, even with nowhere to go…so I put together a few festive outfits featuring my favorite REVOLVE finds below!

    This outfit is one of my favorites from REVOLVE for the holidays. This House Of Harlow wrap dress is super comfy, stylish + is as chic as can be. I love a wrap style dress and this one is great quality. I paired it with red ankle strap heels + a red Gucci bag. This outfit just screams Christmas dinner or holiday party to me…if only I had somewhere to go hehe.

    When I put this outfit together it gave me total Blair Waldorf Gossip Girl vibes so yes I will be wearing this next time I am in NYC for the holidays, strolling down 5th avenue looking at the gorgeous window displays…till then I will cherish this look in my closet. This L’Academie Sweater is a favorite of mine because it is so soft + cozy, great to style a variety of ways and will always be timeless. I paired this sweater with a plaid skirt, Gucci Belt, red Gucci bag + black over the knee boots.

    Here’s another fun holiday look that was made from a summer into fall piece. I had this Camila Coelho off the shoulder dress I wore over the summer and fall but wanted to transition it to holiday so I layered a red trench coat over it, added a Gucci belt, Valentino bag + red ankle strap heels. This is the perfect holiday party look, if only there were parties to go to!

    This is what I call my Gingerbread inspired outfit. I styled a L’Academie dress from REVOLVE with a simple white Gucci belt, red Gucci bag + red pumps. I love this look as this dress can be styled so many ways throughout the year and with a few easy accessories it is instantly perfect for holiday!

    Which REVOLVE look is your favorite?
