You could do the whole 'favour' things like IOU's eg, ill wash ur car next saturday, etc, then in small print write the T&C's at the bottom

I am dieing with laughter at this thread! Planning my own wedding can be real stressful at times but remembering the meaning behind all of this hooha is what keeps a girl sane.  Cheesy I can't wait to see what other people are coming up with. I could definately see how to geek up the place. Dice as wedding favors. I even got the idea (on another thread) to use wire and wrap it around a die (instead of a marble) and make it into a necklace. To bad my fiance doesnt wear jewelry (it disgusts him, to wear it, not to see me wearing it) but he was a sweetheart and said he would wear his wedding ring always ('cept when we are crafting together, heh)

This isn't exactly "random" but I always wanted to have something for my guests to do while they are sitting at their tables during the reception. Sometimes it's awkward to have to make conversation with random people you don't know, and a lot of people aren't into the whole dancing thing. So...my idea is to have different boardgames as the centerpieces for each table. It could actually turn out to look cute, if you set it up, and it give the guests something to do, so they aren't bored out of their minds. (though, at this wedding, I don't think anyone could possibly get bored.)

Board Games are a good idea but they could take to long. (Like monopoly) and if someone wants to get up to go get somthing to eat/drink they have to stop the whole game. Maybe if you gave the people somthing quick, like an ice breaker question or some trivia on their place holders it would be neat. (Though a board game theme might be kind of cool, have your wedding party dress up like those from candy land)

for the ice breaker, i read somewhere (i forget now) that one idea that would be fun is to have a bunch of those disposable cameras, but make it into a scavenger hunt! like every table has different goals of what to try and capture on film, and that way people will work together. stuff like finding couples who've been married longer than 5 years, couples that are married less than a year, the bride and groom dancing, one of the entire table together

Ha! And I was just about to suggest scavenger hunt! Hey congrats! I too am planning a wedding--my sweetie proposed Christmas Eve.

I think interpretive dance is a totally undervalued form of wedding communication for your vows.

Personally, I think that if you really want to parody traditional weddings, you should go over-the-top traditional for your wedding dress.  How much would you stand out in your pristine white 1950's good-girl dress amongst all the insanity?  Besides, some of the styles from that era are very similar to what you're already talking about...  full skirts with sheer overlays and corsety tops.  Like these:
(My favorites are the two layered lacy dresses about midway down the page.)

Maybe you could talk your mother (or the groom's mother?) into running down the aisle weeping at the "forever hold your peace" question.  Or, um...  You could have someone dressed as a cowboy pull a six-shooter cap gun and walk out of the room... forever hold your piece...  (Boo, hiss, I know...) 

Make your garter out of crocheted or knitted lace.  Knit your bouquet.

I just have to say, I actually laughed out loud over that.

i don't know your tastes but here are some dresses i like.

I know this is a little late in the discussion but I just wanted to put my two cents in.
The above dress is gorgeous. Actually I've chosen it to be my wedding gown only a few weeks ago...before I stumbled upon this wonderful forum. I was just excited to see that someone else liked it (I picked the longer pattern....more gownish and flowy...also has a very Latin/salsa dancing feel that I love..and as much as I adore it in the red color shown, I'm going for the traditional white). I recently approached my future mother-in-law (as she is a fellow craft-fiend) to help me make this dress. So I'm sure I'll be coming here to ask for advice and tips....I'm not quite the seamstress that my fiance's mom is!

You ladies are so creative and awesome. Theme weddings aren't my thing but you ladies have some wonderful ideas! I'd love to see what your weddings turn out like. Make sure to post tons of pictures.  Grin

This is kind of random but what about a bag of flour (I like to cook, can you tell?) instead of flowers and the flower girls can toss flour into the air?
