Ok-so this weekend my Big Sister tied the knot after twenty-five years of cohabition with one swell-of-a-good guy!
Yea! Congrats Lea and Jim! Incidentally, you can read about Jim’s stag by clicking HERE.
The whole shebang was wicked from start to finish. Call it Non-Stop hilarity as only a family of troublemakers can get into.
What made it Special? For those attending nuptials in the near and distant future, here are a few Fudgarrific tips for making the most out of the day of reckoning.
First Idea! Red Clown Noses
When my nephew got married on a beach in Mexico last year, I decided to surprise the just-married newlyweds with a daring idea.
The moment the lovely couple were pronounced “Husband and Wife” and got lost in their first married kiss, the entire wedding party donned $1 Red Foam Clown Noses so when the bride and groom came up for air, we collectively surprised the happy couple to their delight.
Here’s a snap!
So when my Big Sister announced her wedding this year, I was stumped on how to top the brilliant red nose caper ( I thought it was brilliant!). My Solution?
This $1.49 fake moustache is wire covered in black ‘whiskers’ with a small clip to attach to one’s nostrils.
Pop one of these to each guest moments before the nuptials and shock the bridge and groom after their big kiss!
Here are a few other great ideas for making a wedding a blast!
Nothing says “Amazing Friend” than acknowledging the Happy Couple with a Personal Toast after giving everyone a Sparkler.
After saying your magic, have everyone light their sparkler and raise their glass.
It’s totally a Kodak Moment!
Aside from the potential misery of vacuuming confetti inside, shooting off a few confetti cannons in 15, 30 and 60 foot showers is a great way to bring some colour to an otherwise drab wedding.
Make sure you request environmentally-friendly confetti cannons that are made from recycled paper…that way the bits may find their way into a bird’s nest for a stylish nest!
Glow Stick Bracelets!
Nothing beats a party that setting everyone aglow! You can buy singles or packages of 100. They’re an inexpensive way to rave out a wedding!
Fireworks! You may know I’m a lover of pyrotechnics. In fact, click HERE to read about my fascination. If the situation allows, have a one minute board of fireworks custom made so you can send up some Sparkle in honour of the day. I always hire Tom at www.rocketfireworks.ca to make mine!
