@Kir32:  I would LOVE to ride a ferris wheel at wedding. By far one of the coolest ideas ever. Do it! But if so, there must also be cotton candy. And funnel cake.

IMO, this is a little over the top (the big top lol), I think you might be seen as trying a little too hard

How in the hell would you get a ferris wheel to your wedding reception? Lol

ETA: I think I came off as a little judgey in that comment up there ^. I don’t think it would be awful… but I would hope you have a carnival theme or something going, otherwise it may look a little out of place. Personally, those things scare me so you couldn’t pay me to get on one. But if you had a whole theme going, I think it could work.

And yes you better have cotton candy and funnel cake! 😉

@Kir32:  A friend of mine did this.  They had their first date at a theme park and he kissed her for the first time on the ferris wheel.  It cost them a pretty penny to rent one but SOOO worth it in my opinion.  They got awesome pictures riding it, kissing in the moonlight, aereal pictures of them dancing their first dance….Everyone rode the ferris wheel and loved it.

ETA: They didn’t have a fair themed wedding.  It was just a regular wedding, with a ferris wheel to ride.

If there’s a park across the stree that usually does this, do you think parents would bring their kids to ride your ferris wheel?

Just a thought.

Otherwise I think it’s great and romantic and of course I would ride it!
