The Ultimate Ranking of Every Disney Movie Wedding — From a Villain's Fiasco to Magical Romance
Disney movies often revolve around love, relationships, and happily ever afters. From the old classics to new releases, Disney couples prove that love is stronger than all else. Some of the best Disney couples had their weddings in the movies, giving us not only inspiration for our future ceremonies but also hope for our own happily ever afters. From Tiana and Naveen's romantic outdoor wedding to Ariel and Prince Eric's dreamy ceremony atop a ship sailing into the sunset, there's nothing quite as magical as a Disney couple tying the knot.
We ranked the Disney weddings from worst to best, taking into account the bride's wedding dress, the venue, and the ceremony. Read ahead to see which wedding came in first and if your rankings matched up to ours. Cheers to happily ever afters!
Beauty and the Beast — Gaston's Wedding For Belle
Quite possibly the worst wedding of them all, Gaston's surprise ceremony for Belle is a disgrace. Not only is she unaware of the wedding, but she never even says she wants to be with Gaston, let alone marry him. The venue Gaston picks could've been cute if Belle approved of the wedding, but since she does not, the location is irrelevant. We'll just leave this here at dead last.
Wreck-It Ralph — Dr. Brad Scott and Sergeant Calhoun's Wedding
There's only one word for Sergeant Calhoun's wedding: devastating. On the day of her wedding to her true love, Dr. Brad Scott, she forgets to complete one of her perimeter checks. A Cy-Bug breaks into the wedding chapel as they are exchanging vows and snatches up Brad, completely devouring him. Yikes. (At least she later finds love again!)
The Little Mermaid — Prince Eric and Vanessa's (Almost) Wedding
After Ursula disguises herself as Vanessa, she goes on her mission to steal Prince Eric. Their wedding day seems to be going smoothly, that is, until Scuttle finds out who Vanessa really is. The whole wedding turns into chaos when birds and sea creatures start attacking Vanessa. Even Max gets in on the action! The wedding falls apart, which is the best thing that could've happened for Ariel.
The Princess and the Frog — "Naveen" and Charlotte's (Almost) Wedding
At La Bouff's masquerade party, Charlotte waits and waits for Prince Naveen (who at this point is actually Lawrence in disguise, as the prince had turned into a frog). When "Naveen" arrives, he and Charlotte dance together, and later the disguised Lawrence proposes to her. Charlotte immediately accepts and decides to hold the wedding at the Mardi Gras Parade the next day. Since Lawrence's identity is revealed during the wedding (which takes place on a float), it does not go as planned. Luckily, the jig is up before they say their "I dos," and Charlotte is still happy for Tiana in the end.
Kronk's New Groove — Kronk and Miss Birdwell's Wedding
Kronk and Miss Birdwell fall in love in The Emperor's New Groove's spinoff movie, leading to some killer dance moves and an underrated relationship. They dance the night away in identical outfits and enjoy nothing but each other's company. During the end credits, photos from Kronk and Miss Birdwell's honeymoon are shown, and wow, are they cute.
Enchanted — Prince Edward and Nancy Tremaine's Wedding
Prince Edward and Nancy Tremaine's wedding is practically out of a storybook (get it?). The couple wear matching white outfits and are married in a beautiful gold chapel. Nancy even kicks her phone to the curb at the very end. If that's not true love, what is?
The Incredibles — Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl's Wedding
Since Mr. Incredible is late to his wedding, that takes off a couple points in our book. Regardless, the wedding is in a beautiful church, and Elastigirl's veil and hairdo are fabulous, so that gives it some extra notoriety. The couple also have sweet vows for each other and promise that no matter what happens, they will stay together.
One Hundred and One Dalmatians — Pongo and Perdita's (and Roger and Anita's) Double Wedding
While Roger and Anita say their vows inside an elegant chapel at sunset, Pongo and Perdita wait outside and also tie the knot. The couple recite their vows to each other as their owners do the same. This sweet double wedding is small, simple, and oh so romantic.
Aladdin and the King of Thieves — Aladdin and Jasmine's Wedding
In the 1996 movie Aladdin and the King of Thieves, Jasmine and Aladdin finally have their fairy-tale wedding. Well, after their first one is ruined, that is! Complete with everyone from the city, their wedding features Genie; Aladdin's dad, Cassim; Jasmine's father; and other royals who are in attendance. Jasmine walks down the aisle in a white gown with small flowers in her hair, and Aladdin is dressed in all white, too. It ends with a big fireworks display, and their love-filled wedding leaves Genie in tears.
Robin Hood — Robin Hood and Maid Marian's Wedding
Out in the forest, Robin Hood presents Maid Marian with a flower ring that she accepts for a magical and sweet proposal. The couple later have their wedding in a church, with all their friends by their side. Maid Marian wears a floor-length white dress with a veil, while Robin Hood sports his traditional outfit. They leave in a carriage with a "just married" sign and head off on their honeymoon.
Tangled Ever After — Eugene and Rapunzel's Wedding
In the short film Tangled Ever After, Eugene and Rapunzel tie the knot during one of the biggest ceremonies the town has ever seen. They get married in a large church with all of their townspeople present, and even though the rings are (almost) lost, the ceremony is not interrupted. Rapunzel has her father walk her down the aisle and is dressed in a chic white gown while Eugene also flaunts a white look. The couple say their vows, and the rest is history!
Up — Carl and Ellie's Wedding
Carl and Ellie's wedding is held inside a small church with both sides of their families in attendance. The bride wears a cute white dress with a veil, and Carl sports a smart black suit. Their guests cheer for the newlywed couple, and directly after their ceremony, Carl and Ellie go home to begin working on their beloved house. Their tragic love story makes this an even sweeter wedding, in our opinion.
Cinderella — Prince Charming and Cinderella's Wedding
Romantic, charming, and as perfect as can be, Prince Charming and Cinderella's classic fairy-tale wedding is one for the books. Held at the prince's sprawling castle, the two are dressed in elegant clothes surrounded by their townspeople and family. After they say their vows, they are whisked away in a carriage. Truly a happily-ever-after ending.
The Little Mermaid — Prince Eric and Ariel's Wedding
Having a lavish wedding on a large ship is the perfect way for these two to tie the knot. The prince dresses in a white suit, and Ariel wears a stunning white gown with a crown to match. Complete with creatures from the sea as well as Eric's friends from land, this couple's gorgeous wedding sets sail for their happily ever after.
The Princess and the Frog — Naveen and Tiana's Wedding
Set in the swamp where the couple overcame their shared and personal struggles and decided life as frogs together was better than life as humans apart, Naveen and Tiana's wedding is beautiful in every way. The ceremony is held at sunset, and Mama Odie officiates the two. When the newlyweds kiss, they are transformed back into humans (complete with stunning coordinated green-and-white wedding attire), making their special day that much better. They later have an elaborate, formal royal wedding with friends and family. It truly doesn't get more magical than this!
