A Whole New Meaning To Wedding “Slide”shows!

…If You’re Crazy Enough To Do It!

This idea might just be due to too much coffee.  Or it might just be a fun idea?  I remember a little over five years ago while planning our wedding, the popular thing was to try and find a beautiful winding staircase to walk into the reception from.

Well, times are quickly changing and today’s couples are getting fun and funky with creative planning ideas.  It’s funny where you find inspiration from, isn’t it?   Definitely not for the closed-minded, but dream with me a little here – imagine instead of a winding staircase, a winding slide:

 I can see it being done – especially with the planners behind that crazy tv show on Lifetime, Top This Party

Just picture the big announcement from the DJ – “Let me introduce to you the new Mr. & Mrs. Funpeeps!”, and as he’s saying it, sliding down the big winding slide enters the bride and groom – laughing as they go, with the bride in the groom’s lap, his legs wrapped around her beautiful dress.  Ta-daaaaah!  They slide down, stand up, and laugh the whole way back to the head table.

Fun, right?  Now exactly how does one install a slide into a reception venue?  Thoughts to ponder!

Thanks to THIS post from Missy over at Isn’t She Lovely for the inspiring picture!

  2. Ha! I would totally do this for my reception next September, I must start thinking about what location would best fit this and how much it might be. It is totally our style though!

  4. Glad all you ladies like the idea…lol, I know, it’s totally off-the-wall and crazy but it could be fun!

    I mean, have you ever watched that tv show, Top This Party on Lifetime? Whenever I watch it with my husband, I just sit there in awe – it’s amazing what some people come up with just to be different.

    Half the time it’s something so odd you just sit, laugh and wonder why…and the other half it’s just really cool to see the amazing idea come to life, even if the idea originally seemed insane to begin with – the end results can really pay off.

    Everyone’s different – that’s what I love so much about weddings, each one is unique and special based on the couple’s creativity or personality.
