Host a Wacky, Wedding-Themed Party!

Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations aren't just for the bride and groom anymore. The latest trend to spring out of the college fraternity and sorority system has people of all walks of life sending wedding invitations to their friends to invite them to a wacky wedding party!

The premise of the party is to incorporate all of the style and fun of a wedding into an entirely new kind of event. Some hosts even take it so far as to send wedding invitations indicating that the party will have three parts: a bachelor and bachelorette party, faux wedding ceremony and reception. From wedding invitation to last call, guests get taken on a whirlwind ride as they follow a fake bride and groom (typically two single friends) through a series of mock events.

More mellow hosts tend to send wedding invitations for wacky wedding parties that just feature one, singular occasion, but they specify on their wedding invitations that guests should wear their wackiest, tackiest bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen attire. Others host ridiculous pet weddings and include a photo of the canine bride and groom on their wedding invitations.

Whatever specifics are laid out on these fun, faux wedding invitations, a wild wedding extravaganza allows burnt out wedding planners, single people and even brides and grooms who wish they could do it all over again to poke fun at wedding conventions and etiquette. So if you're tired of cocktail parties and backyard barbecues, start sending those wedding invitations and get ready to give that neon green bridesmaid's dress another chance to shine!
