Not sure if wedding shows count (probably not) but ever since seeing a couple with champagne aerialists at their wedding I seriously want to attend one that has them. Or wedding llamas! Sadly the weddings I have attended in real life were not as crazy.

ktrv927 :  lol, what?  I haven’t seen anything weird at a wedding, but my sister was just having a girls’ weekend and witnessed a wedding from her hotel room where the bride came in on a unicorn.  She found it pretty funny and later they let her photograph the unicorn (she was on the phone with me and they came to her ‘area’ for wedding photos).  I’d be rolling my eyes so hard if I knew that person though.  Too self-absorbed, pretty pretty princess for me!

Sadly, I’ve never attended a wedding that would qualify as “extra”. Although I did just watch a YouTube video of a bride who floated in to the ceremony tethered to about a million white balloons. It was pretty disgusting IMO. I hate balloons, so that may have colored my opinion!

Parading around 20 glow in the dark Dom Perignon bottles. An appetizer course of sushi and caviar served on a bento box carved out of ice with the couple’s initials also carved in it. And a surprise set by Jason Derulo.

Ive been to two over the top weddings, both from the same family. The first one was at a castle, had the actual jersey boy broadway group sing at the ceremony, had a dessert room with over 50+ desserts and had a live oil panter painting the reception. Im sure there was more but I can’t remember it all now.

When the brother got married his was also at a castle but this time in Italy, and had fireworks as they cut the cake. Not just some small little sparklers but full on 4th if July type fireworks!

sapphire27 :  I’ve done that at a wedding before in my old days as an aerialist! It was a very mixed reaction, not for everyone. And if I hadn’t been there, people would have still got their drinks so it did feel very extra. I mostly stuck to performances rather than trying to pour out glasses of champagne while upside down haha.

An older couple that I’m friends with were married a few years ago. 

He was a paratrooper in Vietnam and he came into the outdoor venue by parachute. 

She surprised him by having the covered wagon used by his favorite college football team (their Alma mater) recreated and she came into the venue in the wagon. 

Now their covered wagon (sooner schooner) is featured in parades and at events pretty often. 

They also had fireworks, and ice sculptures of their dogs.

Their wedding was by far the most “extra” wedding I’ve ever attended. It was also really fun. They had the means to throw a great party for their friends and families and spared no expense to do it.

I went to a wedding once where the bride kept changing into a new dress every hour or so and cleared off the dance floor so she could have a dance with her husband and family photos before running off to change again. They all looked like prom/quinceaniera-quality gowns too. I just didn’t get it.

bellathefox :  I have also been to a Jason Derulo wedding! But no sushi or Dom. Jason stays busy with his wedding bookings, I guess!

Nothing compaired to some of these, but one of the elopement packages I was looking at had an optional extra: an owl ring bearer. Not only do I not think it’s a bit cruel to make a wild animal perform in a wedding, but it also sounds like it could go really badly if the owl gets freaked out.
