Can’t seem to get the skater boy persona from you and your groom? Did your skateboards bump into each other back then? Is that how you met? Then have a skateboard wedding theme. Think of yourself in wedding gown while riding on some skates. Cool, eh? There’s nothing childish in it. Actually, it’s fun, liberating and unique! So gather up your crew and start planning on your skateboard wedding. Here are some tips for you to break the usual brainstorming ice.
Half-Pipe Bridal Pictorial
After your wedding ceremony, you could at least convince your photographer to have an epic pictorial on the street or on some Mega Ramp or even just some half-pipes. Make sure each of you have a skateboard to make the pictures look interactive. For an even more dramatic pictorial, you could have it an empty swimming pool.
Burger Joint Resto Reception
As for your reception, you could adopt a vintage burger joint resto. It’s where skaters love to eat calorie-rich food which would replace the burn out carbs. Give everyone milkshakes with some striped paper straws to sip on. Salted just-fried French fries would also be happy welcome treats for your guests. You could level up and go couture with your main course presentation. Ask your caterers on how to pull it off.
Skates as Signage
Write a “Just Married” sign on skateboards and include them in pictorials. They’ll be adorable props your guests would love to play with. You could also use skates in your wedding seat plan directions, wedding menu showcase and other wedding signs that you will need in the reception.
Skates as Guest Book
To remember everyone who witnessed your special day, you could pass around a special skateboard which they could write on. Let them write their messages, wishes and other whatnots in there. Make sure the pen that you distribute would stick on to the skate surface and not be easily wash out.
Skate Cake Toppers
Get rid of the usual bride and groom cake toppers and go for the casually cool couple with a skateboard. These would be mini yous. You could just buy existing ones in the market or you could have a custom made pair with your distinct features incorporated. You could also style the cake like a skateboard mini ramp. That would be the coolest.
