hidden mickey

 My parents are BIG Disney people. My mom once said that she would pay for the entire wedding if we did it at Disney world but could only really afford to provide a very small ceremony (less than 20) and it was not something we could do with the size of FH's immediate family. I thought it would be cute to incorporate Hidden Mickeys at the reception like they have at Disney World. They're small and subtle and would definitely be caught by my family and I think it would be fun for them to find. 



So what would you do wp? I love the idea of something that is so subtle, yet completely intentional. I have a few ideas but I'm a little lost.

I agree with all this. :)

We went there for our honeymoon too! I think Hidden Mickey's at a reception would be super cute, subtle and not overly themey, but a lot of fun.

You can incorporate it into scrollwork designs on invitations, place cards, programs, and icing decorations on your cake.

Well, I did forget to mention that the wedding is May 8, so we already sent out invites, but the cake was an idea that popped into my head. I may give them a call and see what they can do. I'll definitely incorporate them on the programs and I was thinking of doing something with my accessories as well, such as on the stems of my bouquet, a little design on my toe when I get my pedi, etc.

Cream on cream design. For example, if the cake is ivory buttercream, use the same color ivory buttercream to create a Mickey in scroll work.

That's exactly what I was as well!

I think it's a great idea. I'd probably make it a scavenger hunt, even. At the reception, announce that there are X number of hidden Mickeys in the room and the first person to find them all gets a prize.

Oooh! This!

I was thinking that too. It'd be a good icebreaker, and an activity for people who don't really drink or dance.

Yes, this! Or you could make it your alternative to having people clink glasses at the reception to get you to kiss. Announce that guests must find a hidden Mickey in order to get you and your new husband to kiss. We've actually considered something like this (although with something else hidden), so I think it would be fun :)

God I wish I had your mum, lol.

Sounds like a great idea to me!

I had hidden Mickeys via my flowers.


The stephenotis needed pins anyway, so the florist just put 3 pins instead of one to make the mickey head. So anywhere that I used those little white flowers, I also had small little hidden mickeys.

You could set up the glasses at the wedding so that they make a mickey. Or have the food set on the plate to be a mickey. Creative layer and spacing can make a Mickey from a distance.

omg! that is so cute!

Precious! What a fun idea.

Mickeys on M&m's would be really cute. If you could see that the table setting of large plate, bread plate, and tea cup/saucer form the head and ears.

a hidden mickey on the wedding cake that was the same color or slightly a shade different so that it could be seen if you are looking but not glaringly obvious.

a flower bouquet that has a hidden mickey in it made out of the flowers with other flowers surrounding it so that its still a natural shape.

maybe a hidden minney on the underside of your shoe and mickey on the grooms shoe

We're getting married at Disneyland and are trying to tie in the Hidden Mickey idea as well =]. I got custom made Mickey earrings as one type of Hidden Mickey

That sounds awesome. My husband is a huuuuuge Disney fan, and I almost wore my Mickey necklace on our wedding day just to surprise him. ;) We DID put a hidden mickey charm attached to my step daughter's bouquet though. I found a crystal sterling silver mickey charm on ebay. Will see if I can find the link for you!!!

It was similar to this


but really only had one large crystal in the center and 2 in the ears, instead of multiple tiny ones. We just clipped it into her bouquet!

Hidden Mickeys, what a CUTE idea! Along with your place cards you could print out little cards with a numbered list and encourage your guests to find all the Mickeys for a small prize(s)! If you're having any children at the wedding it would certainly be something fun for them to do.

You could hide them in a centerpiece, maybe some of the decorations, flowers and centerpieces, maybe a bouquet charm on your toss bouquet or your garter, programs, place/table cards (or just one of them), the design on your cake, some of the utensils, maybe the inside fold of a napkin, maybe your groom's boutenniere or one of the groomsmen's, your mom's corsage...
