Ways to add childlike wonder to your big day

Ways to add childlike wonder to your big day

If you still feel like a child at heart, a stuffy wedding just won’t do. There are so many fun ways to bring the excitement of childhood into your big day, without it seeming like a massive playground.

Here are some fun ideas to bring childhood nostalgia into your wedding in a (mostly) mature way.

Get married in a treehouse:

Remember the childhood excitement of playing in a treehouse? The adventures and possibilities were endless. If you’re a nature-lover, a treehouse might just be the perfect wedding venue for you. This brings together the beauty of the outdoors and the whimsical nostalgia of yesteryear.

Simplify your wedding menu:

Take a trip down memory lane by incorporating childhood favourites into your wedding menu. Rather than stuffy hors d’oeuvres your guests can barely identify, serve what you love. Today’s couples are creating unique twists on old faithfuls like grilled cheese, sliders and fries. You could even rent a food truck to serve up some delicious foods all night long for that carnival feel.

Bring the playground to you:
Just because you’re a grown-up, does not mean you can’t have some silly fun! Get inspired by childhood birthday parties and hire a jumping castle, a blow up slide or even a mechanical bull for your big day. We promise this will put a massive smile on your guests’ faces.

Play lawn games:

Wedding games are slowly growing in popularity, and understandably so. There is no better way to get the giggles going than with some simple games that will bring out the child in everyone. The key is to offer quick-round games that will have many involved and captivated at once. Think Jenga, Limbo, Noughts and Crosses and Ring Toss.
