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!
The effect is priceless! Here are some snaps:
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!
