Freeform announced a seven-episode series order for Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings Premiering in spring 2018, each hour-long episode will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most spectacular weddings and engagements at Disney Destinations around the globe. From a sun-drenched holiday proposal at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii, to a winter wonderland wedding at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, viewers will be guests from the start of each couple’s “happily ever after” journey.
The original special featured Bachelor Ben and his selected Bachelorette Lauren, but that have since ended their relationship so it is unlikely that they will be returning as hosts.
“We are creating one of the most beautiful shows in the world with ‘Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings’ and Disney Parks & Resorts, where they make couples’ dreams come true,” said executive producer Ann Lewis Roberts, “making a couple’s fantasy into a reality by transforming their wedding into an event more magical and spectacular than they could have ever imagined.”
On the heels of the breakout special that aired in May 2017, Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings garnered nearly three million views across linear and digital, making it Freeform’s highest-rated unscripted TV special to date.
“Continuing on the success of Freeform’s ‘Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings’ summer special, we are continuing to invest in our relationship with the ‘Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings’ team to bring magic and spirit to viewers everywhere,” said Kary McHoul, senior vice president, Programming & Development, Unscripted, Freeform. “We can’t wait to make wedding dreams come true with the most epic wedding planning team in the world.”
“The ‘Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings’ team is honored to provide another behind-the-scenes glimpse into our Disney wedding planning services, share our unique fairy tale wedding locations, and connect viewers with our couples’ personal love stories,” said Korri McFann, marketing director for Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons.
