20 Fun Ideas for Your Perfect Wedding Day

Inspirational, Lists

Your wedding, whenever it may happen, could be within the top five most important days you’re going to have in your entire life. It has to be perfect for everyone involved, especially the bride and groom, who will go through the painstaking tasks of setting everything up beforehand. However, just because it’s such an important day doesn’t mean you can’t have a little bit of fun with it, too. There are plenty of ideas floating around to ensure everyone has a nice time, a couple of laughs, and some memorable photographs in the end.

Have A Field Day

Invite everyone going to your wedding for one, big field day. This will give everybody attending the chance to get to know the other side of the family or friends they’ve never met. Perhaps love can bloom here, too.

Song Requests

When sending out your RSVP cards, be sure to include a song request at the very bottom to ensure everyone gets to hear a favorite song. This should enable the entire wedding party a little more variety and flavor while on the dance floor.

Waffle Bar

If you’re have a reception earlier in the morning, or even mid-morning-to-afternoon, then having a waffle bar could prove exceptional for all those involved. Let people pick out some waffles and various toppings for a delicious meal.

Fun Cake Toppers

Switch out the plain, old boring cake topper of the man and woman getting married. That’s been done before. Instead, find something a little more unique, such as one where the couple are grasping their significant other’s butt.

Love Story Aisle Runner

Family and friends will be sitting on other side of the aisle, so give them something to look at or read while they wait. A love story aisle runner can tell the entire tale of how the happy couple met, and their time throughout the past few years.

Beer Bar

Assuming you’re of age when you get married, having a beer bar for the adults at your wedding reception should be a required piece for everyone. Allow people to choose their own beer and fill their glass using a tap.

Advice Cards

Leave out some advice cars at the dinner tables for everyone to fill out. Fun questions can be asked, such as the name of your first child or a pet, for example. This is a great way to break the ice between people who don’t know each other.

Flip Cup

Just because you’re now becoming an adult, complete with a wife and everything, doesn’t mean you have to avoid all the fun things you used to do. Having an awesome after party could include a fan-favorite flip cup.


There will probably be children coming to the wedding on either side of the family, so having something to entertain them at dinner would be beneficial to everyone. Throw some crayons and bits of candy on their table to keep them happy.

Ball Pit

Let your inner child run wild, or your drunken self, either one. A ball pit is a colorful reminder of the days gone by that you can still enjoy. Be sure not to let anyone drown in the ball pit from being too drunk, though.


Mad-libs are hilarious no matter what the word combination ends up being. Make one specifically for your wedding and bring on the laughs as soon as possible.


Hand out sparklers when you’re walking down the aisle, especially for a night-time wedding, to give the entire event a festive look. The colors and flaring lights will be easily remembered by everyone in attendance.

Painted Ceremony

Have an artist sit in the back of the ceremony and paint the entire scene on a nice, large canvas. Your new husband or wife will love remembering that special day every time they pass by the painting at home.

Anniversary Pinata

Instead of using a guest book, make an anniversary pinata to break open one your one-year anniversary. Allow guests to include a little note, joke, message, prediction, or a piece of encouragement for the happy couple.

Ageless Flower Girls

Instead of going for the traditional child flower girls, ask your grandmother or aging aunt to play the role instead. Let the old bird walk down the aisle once more and toss those colored petals around the room.

Price Is Right Wheel

Have a full-size Price is Right Wheel at your wedding, and let people take turns spinning. Have various choices, such as “Pick a couple to kiss,” “Give your date a smooch,” or “Bridge & Groom kiss.”

Photo Stand-ins

Instead of a traditional photo booth or photograph patiently waiting to capture everyone, include a couple of hilarious stand-ins so people can poke their head through famous characters for laughs.

Hangover Kits

If your after-party is going to be off the hook, then you may want to offer a hangover bag to help them out. Include items such as water, flavored sports drinks, coupons for breakfast, or headache medicine.

Food Truck

Instead of your reception having a table full of food, hire a local food truck to park outside the party to feed your hungry guests. Burgers, tacos, donuts, really anything is fine, as long as it’s edible.

Candy Bar

Everyone loves candy, so feature a table with small bags and let everyone fill it with their favorite kinds. There are so many options available, everyone will find something they love.
