Sometimes it starts to feel like wedding planning is/has been/will be an uphill battle, and a little lighthearted approach may help take the edge off. Share some silly wedding ideas you’ve thought of with your SO to remind us all that it doesn’t always have be such a big serious situation 🙂
Here’s mine: FI asked me what music I wanted in the background when I walked down the aisle. I said Transformers theme music. Then he accused me of liking dark minor tones too much, and I said I don’t even know what that means, but the Transformers song is a hopeful one! The outcome of the debate is TBD
Here’s FI’s: getting a big party bus with lots of neon lighting and stripper poles to chauffeur our older family members around, just for kicks.

we joked that we wanted to get up to the officiant, have him say to FI
and then to me
and then turn and walk back down the aisle. all done! I think it would be hysterical

Once while on a date we planned our entire zombie themed wedding. The guests would dress as zombies, there would be video game style health packs for favors, my dress would be cheap because it would just be a torn up white dress… we spent a good hour talking about it. And of course, it was all a joke.
However, our processional and recessional songs are going to be from Star Wars. No joke 🙂

@GroovyHippieChick: That’s almost exactly what I said too! Except I’m still not totally sure I was kidding… I think that would actually be the best ceremony for us

@NerdCampLove: hahaha I love it! And let’s be honest here, that music was chosen for epic movies for a reason, and I don’t see why I can’t get some of that for my big day, amiright?

- Wedding: August 2013 - Brookfield Zoo
The friend we asked to be an officiant has a twin brother and both have officiated weddings before… so we joked that they could both tag team officiating our wedding!! Not happening though…!
I also wanted FI to wear a tux with tails, and he said only if he can wear a top hat along with it. Umm… maybe? Haha.

@Taeyers: If FI’s parents hadn’t waited 40 years to see him get married, we would so do it. . LOL

Being a lover of all things cheese, we have joked for a long time (before engagement!) about having a nacho cheese fountain (like a chocolate fountain) and have tortilla chips, chicken fingers, veggies etc to dip in the fountain.. mmm it would be so good! But, when it came down to actually planning the wedding, there will be no cheese fountain.

FI and I are both not into decoration. When my wedding planner talks about centerpieces and table runners and napkin rings I get panick attacks. I just don’t know. FI jokes about having bare tables and asking guests to bring stuff the day of the wedding and decorate the tables themselves!!!

@X0JLYNN03: Aww you should fight for your fountain! If people complain, tell them it’s exquisitely expensive cheese… then tell them they can’t have any with that kind of attitude.
@goodgenie: What a cute idea! I can relate to your decoration-phobia…

The ideas other people may consider just jokes are things we’re actually doing =/ The one thing we discussed, but decided against, is to have the best “maid” carry a chestburster plush toy (from Aliens) down the aisle instead of flowers. I made zombie cake toppers and a zombie bout for him. We made two versions of our save the dates. This is the one we sent to our friends, and my parents (who all loved them):
Based on The Human Centipede. Tag line came first. I woke up one morning and the idea formulated in my head.

He’s joked about using ALL video game music.
I joked that I’d walk down the aisle to the mario bros music 😛

- Wedding: February 2013 - Mansion House at the MD Zoo
I have a friend who offered to “object” for us. Zorro-style, swinging in on a chandelier. Also since we’re getting married at the Zoo, two separate people (including FFIL) have offered to wear gorilla suits, and my father is insisting on wearing a Hawaiian shirt. I don’t think any of them are doing it….
Oh, and our recessional is “She’s No Lady, She’s Your Wife.” CHorus: The preacher asked her, she said I do, The preacher asked me, she said, yeah he does do, The preacher said, I now pronounce you 99-life, Son she’s no lady she’s your wife….
We’re trying to have fun with it. Possibly a bit too much. We did nix the idea of riding in on elephants though. (Zoo… get it…?)
