11 Ways to be the MacGyver of Planning an Insanely Fun Wedding!

You’ve planned the perfect wedding, said your vows, tossed your bouquet, and now it’s time to get the party started. With all the hard work you put into planning your big day, you deserve to let loose and have a little – actually, a LOT of fun! We’ve compiled a list of 11 insanely fun wedding ideas that will impress your guests and leave them talking about it for years to come. So kick off your shoes and grab a margarita, lets get a little silly!

Get Crafty with your First Dance

 


Sure, the first dance is always a sweet and romantic moment for everyone to see. But what about a totally unexpected cha-cha routine to wow your guests? Or how about choreographing a quirky little skit for your audience? Not only will it entertain your guests, it’ll set the mood for the rest of the night and get everyone into a groovy state of mind!

Has anyone seen Justin Willman’s wife put a spell on him during their first dance? The audience’s reaction is the best. Make sure to watch the video until the end!

Have a Designated Kid Zone

 


Brainstorm some fun games for the kids to play and bring some crayons and coloring books to keep them occupied. You can even order personalized wedding coloring books if they’re in your budget. Ask a close relative if they would be willing to act as the activity coordinator for the kids, or hire a nanny who can look after them and manage their games and activities throughout the night. That way your guests can relax and enjoy themselves while their little ones do the same!

Hand Out Silly Party Favors

 


Don’t forget that your wedding reception is a party! Invite your guests to have a little fun and hand out noisemakers, silly string, funny props, or even some confetti to blow the place up with color. Let loose and let the party get a little crazy, a little fun never hurt no one!

Make a “DIY” Food Station

 


People love food. People love fun. Why not combine the two? Let your guests decorate their own cupcakes, make their own grilled cheese, create their own personalized cookie, or even let them prepare their own epic banana split. The possibilities are endless. Besides, the quickest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, right?

Outdoor Wedding? Set Up Some Fun Lawn Games!

 


Ever played life-size Jenga? Here’s your chance! Set up some super fun games for your guests to play to keep them laughing all night. Twister, Cornhole, three-legged races, and egg racing are all classic games that everyone will enjoy playing. What better way to bond with your new brother-in-law than playing a game of Twister?

Anniversary Pinata

 


Instead of writing in a traditional guestbook, have your guests write words of encouragement, advice, funny jokes and anything else they want on a little note which they can drop into a pinata that you and your hubby will pop open on your one year anniversary. Imagine how fun it will be to bust it open on your anniversary day. Make a cute date out of it! Pop some champagne, eat some cake, and have fun smacking around the pinata from your big day. We’re sure you’ll get some hilarious and heart-warming notes in there.

How About an Expert Tasting Station?

 


Give your guests a taste of luxury with an expert beer, wine, or whiskey tasting station. You can even have a margarita station where guests can make their own unique margaritas, yum! Hand-rolled cigars are also a great option, just make sure your guests won’t be bothered by the smoke.

Set Up a Quirky Photo Station

 


Forget paying for a photo booth! Print out hilarious life size cut outs of you and your significant other for people to pose with, or get some crazy photo stand-ins. One couple made a life size Polaroid frame for people to pose with and the shots came out amazing! You can even hand out fun props and masks for your guests to incorporate into their pictures. The funkier, the better!

Plan a Surprise

 


Sometimes the best part of a party is the part that you don’t expect. Plan a surprise for your wedding reception, like a belly dancer or a team of acrobats, that can put together a crazy performance that will blow your guests away.

Rent a Bouncy Castle

 


Who said bouncy castles are only for kids? Rent a bouncy castle for your guests to bounce around in, they’ll thank you for it! Not only will it be the most amazingly fun experience EVER, the pictures of your guests hopping all over the place will make your sides hurt from laughing. It’s also a great way to let the grown ups and the kids have fun all together. That way, everyone is happy!

Get a Nostalgic Game of Flip Cup Going

 


Throw it back to freshman year with some good ol’ drinking games. Set up teams such as girls versus boys, or bride’s side versus groom’s side and dual it out over a heated game of flip cup! You can show off your secret ability at landing the cup perfectly every time while kicking the other team’s butt!

So there’s our list of 11 insanely fun wedding ideas. Have you started planning your wedding? Check out our bridal checklist to make sure you’re on track every step of the way!
