Unusual and bizarre wedding themes
When it comes to accessorizing for your big day, it really is a
personal choice and your decisions should be based on your
individuality as a couple along with your venue, dress choice and
overall colour theme. All this said, there are very few brides out
there who opt for a simple and classic wedding theme. In fact, the
upward trend in unusual and bizarre wedding themes grows year upon
Now, your idea of a weird wedding theme may be someone else's idea
of sheer perfection, so in advance, may I state that what I call
weird is purely my opinion and I apologise if anyone is offended by
Last year, I read about a 'duck' themed wedding. The bride was
quite literally obsessed with all forms of water fowl and wanted
this to be very much reflected in her wedding theme. So much so,
that the event itself was undertaken in a marquee erected on
parkland and next to a lake. This lake was - of course - frequented
by all sorts of ducks and birds! Invitations with small mallard
motifs were sent out to the guests and each envelope was stuffed
with soft feathers. The male entourage adorned purple, green and
orange waistcoats which had been hand-made to replicate 'plumage'!
The bridesmaids were dressed in pretty cream dresses and 'wings'
were pinned to their backs. They were carrying swan shaped baskets
full of feathers to be used instead of confetti. At each place
setting, duck shaped placecard holders contained duck-themed cards,
napkins were tied with duck print ribbon and favours were acrylic
swan shaped plastic boxes filled with chocolate 'eggs'. Bet you
can't guess what the guests had to eat!? Don't worry, a delicious
dish of beef was served. Phew!
Even more bizarre that the duck themed wedding, was the
toy/game-themed wedding that I heard about. The couple actually met
whilst working in a toy store together and a toy themed wedding was
an obvious choice for them. The couple married in a Disney style
castle and her entourage were dressed like the seven dwarfs!
Each place setting was set with a toy gift for each guest and
these varied from skipping ropes to wooden trains, story books to
Each table was also set with board games for guests to enjoy
during the meal. Although this sounds rather odd, the games and
favours were fantastic ice breakers and the guests really enjoyed
the wedding as a result.
More weird and wonderful wedding themes are those centred around
'Space & The Planets', 'Everything Made from Wood', 'Bugs and
Insects', 'Bubbles', and 'Squares'! So, if you think your wedding
theme is a bit funky and unusual, then think again.
