Are you ready to have some fun on your wedding day? After all your months of planning, it’s time to have a little fun. Wedding officiants have fun comparing notes when they get together, and the most fun is to share the creative wedding pranks couples have used to get a laugh from their guests. Many of these are outside of the ceremony itself.
I encourage couples to use one or two lighthearted wedding pranks during their ceremony. As a wedding minister I have observed that a laugh from the guests breaks the tension of the day. I can see guests settle a little more into their chairs, becoming more present for the ceremony itself.
One of my favorite ways to do this is to ask a joke vow question – outside of the serious vows, of course. Guests don’t expect it. And even though the couple knows it is coming (I would never potentially embarrass a couple without their knowledge) they get a good laugh because of the laughter of their guests.
Another easy – and even spontaneous – way to celebrate is with the walk out at the recessional. When a couple has rehearsed this ahead of time it is great fun. I always encourage that the recessional music come in loud and strong immediately following the introduction of the couple at the ceremony’s conclusion. If they react with great joy and have some dance steps to move down the aisle their guests love it and a tone is set for the ensuing festivities.
There are lots of other fun things you can do for fun at your ceremony. Check out these suggestions! And for a taste of the many things you can find by searching on YouTube, here’s another way to get a good laugh – or to get you thinking about your own prank!
