For a zany, zesty wedding, have it at the zoo with zebras and other zoophytes for company.
Properly how zany can a wedding get? Let us recount some of the approaches you can add a touch of ‘zany-ness’ to your wedding. From bungy jumping, to your wedding in a cave in the Blue Mountains, to serving fairy floss at your reception, there has to be one thing that appeals to the ‘kid’ in you.
Mix It Up
Choose a wedding venue that is out of the norm.
Check out adventure websites like Freemanx for ‘alternative’ wedding venues. Bungy jumping at Cairns, QLD or hot air ballooning at Byron Bay NSW or the Yarra Valley in Victoria. Hold your wedding at the Cathedral Chamber Cave in the Blue Mountains, NSW, lit to highlight the extraordinary functions of the cave.
Other exclusive venues contain
- Underwater over The Wonderful Barrier Reef
- Theme parks
- Leading of the Sydney Harbour bridge

Chocolate Fountains are a scrumptious way to get the sweet toothed guests mingling. Offer a wide variety of treats to dips- fruit, marshmallows, sweet biscuits, candy even pretzels!
A magician could entertain guests for the duration of cocktail hour. Using the tricks that utilized to amuse you as a child – pulling a coin out of thin air – will be remembered by your guests and is a great way to get them interacting.
The Three Waiters entails “three singing waiters hiding in plain sight at your private function before unleashing a dynamic and sophisticated reside performance a la The 3 Tenors. What a way to add laughter to your reception! They can execute all more than the planet and add a surprise laugh or two!
For the theatrical bridesmaids and groomsmen why not secretly practice a song or small overall performance that is sprung on guests and the bride and groom, at a designated time throughout the reception. It adds a truly personal touch and considerably frivolity to the occasion – just hope that no-1 chokes on their food! For inspiration, don’t forget to examine out Amy’s Song, which I posted earlier this year.
Best Wedding Toast Ever!!!! (Amy’s Song) –
A comedian could be a fun addition to the entertainment. He could be a ‘stand alone’ act, or if you chose a band with an ebullient front man who is genuinely funny it will add extra pizzazz to your evening. Just guarantee that the jokes are not produced at the expense of somebody (unless they have a wonderful sense of humour and are thick skinned) and that they are appropriate for all the age groups present. Your elderly granny might be uncomfortable with really risqué jokes, for instance.
Photobooths are often a hit at a wedding. Provide props like feather boas and large hats, even think about a big cardboard cutout photo of the newlyweds for some additional entertaining.

Do a enjoyable, choreographed very first dance. You’ve noticed the videos! The evolution of dance, a sweet love song that turns into heavy metal, even recreating the well-known scene from Dirty Dancing. It’s constantly a hit with guests and spending your first dancing having a ball sounds great to me!
Provide bubbles as an alternative of confetti for your guests and let them recapture their childhoods with a excellent bit of bubble blowing action. Contemplate utilizing bubble guns for even larger bubbles!

Offer paper tablecloths and a bunch of crayons and let guests go wild on their table cloth. If you’re truly sentimental, collect the tablecloths and reduce out your favourite drawings to frame or place in an album.
Hire an artist to generate caricatures of guests that they can take residence. It gives guests a fantastic speaking point and is a entertaining way to liven up the evening.
If you are into ‘dressing up’, why not organize your wedding around a theme? You could have food ready appropriate to the theme, your venue decorated in proper fabrics and accessories, and your guests invited to dress up in clothing that express your selected theme. Themes could be medieval, all white, film, musical, Hawaiian or even 19th century.
So much could be zany. It is just restricted by your imagination. Why does the reception have to be staid and formal? From venues, to food and its presentation, to the favours, be diverse and feel outside the square, and have a wedding that absolutely everyone will don’t forget!
