    Exciting or different wedding ideas

    I am getting married quite soon and we would like to have something a bit different at our wedding. We were planning on releasing loads of lanterns, but didn't realise about the problems associated with this so have scrapped that!

    Does anyone have any ideas or have been to a wedding where they did something a bit different?

    Any ideas very much appreciated!

    We had at my daughters wedding a Candy Floss machine and Popcorn that was run for us in a great stall with the lady serving. The kids loved it and everyone said how much better than a Chocolate Fountain it was:)

    We had a bubble machine in the church and reception.

    What about releasing doves or butterflies instead of lanterns?

    we photographed a wedding a few week ago where they hired an ice cream van for a flat rate and all the ice creams were free, they had a big sign with picture in the window and they changed all the ice cream names to something wedding related, really fun for the kids and looks great on the pictures with the bride servinge ice cream.

    Yeah i had a look at them they charge 180 for one. And 300 for both popcorn and candyfloss. Is this close to what you paid that is for 90 portions of each.

    may look nice, be wary of those who are scared by small wing-ed things, especially kids, they go mental!

    you're female...... thus deserving

    I went to a wedding last year where all the guests were given sparklers in the evening. They had some fab pictures, and it was something very different.

    That's a lovely idea - I'll have to check if we're allowed to do that but it sounds brilliant!

    Rep added :thumbsup:

    They had to provide metal containers filled with sand, and the sparklers had to be used outside, they were the only conditions. Hope that helps a bit.
