Planning a wedding can often center around how to give your guests the best memories possible. If you are a bride and groom that would enjoy adding a little humor to the ceremony, consider your audience and the tone of your ceremony. This will help you decide what kind of comic relief is right for you. Having a memorable wedding is often about the entertainment factor.
Most weddings include a portion of the ceremony where each member of the bridal party walks down the aisle before the couple is married. To put a humorous twist on this typical practice, members of the wedding party can dance their way down the aisle. Choosing a popular or humorous song to play while each bridesmaid and groomsman partners up to dance down the aisle is sure to put a smile on every guest's face. This will set the tone for the remainder of the wedding and let guests know they are in for a fun night.
Baby pictures are another way to incorporate some fun into your wedding ceremony. Have an overhead projector or a PowerPoint slide filled with pictures of the bride and groom playing as guests arrived. Finding rare and humorous pictures can be a task for the entire bridal party to enjoy.
Perhaps the most serious and emotional portion of a wedding ceremony is the exchange of vows. This is a time for the bride and groom to express their deepest feelings for one another. Depending upon the type of wedding customs, vows can be delivered in different ways. To add a humorous twist, veer away from the more traditional vows and include some personal vows that will make everyone at the wedding laugh. For example, a groom that doesn't enjoy taking out the trash can vow to "always have a good attitude about taking out the garbage."
A humorous wedding ceremony might also directly involve the guests. In your wedding invitation let guests know that you want them to participate in sharing a funny story, memory or anecdote. Designate a portion of the ceremony for each guest to take a turn sharing their humorous story. Not only will this add some laughter to the ceremony, it will give the bride and groom a chance to create an unforgettable memory.
