Unique Wedding Ideas Grand Entrance and Exits


How you and your hubby will do your entrance or exit on your wedding can do a lot to stress your chosen theme.

If you know Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream by heart, then donkeys will have a special place in your heart as well. If you’re wondering where we’re going with this, then wonder no more since we’re about to pitch this entrance idea to you – make your entrance by riding a donkey, with your hubby to be leading you and your ride. We don’t know about you, but we love this idea, and if you did as well but don’t have any idea how you get your hands on one, don’t worry, since there are lots of donkey ride services and with the advent of the internet, they’re just a few clicks away.

If you love the story but not the donkey part, then we think going for a grand and magical-looking carriage is a worthy alternative. There’s something about the color white that gives an instant magical feeling, and the fact that it is for a wedding makes it extra perfect. Just add lots of flowers in the picture and they’ll be amazing.

If you’re having a night wedding reception, we suggest doing your entrance amidst some fog (should be quite easy to accomplish with a fog machine) and lots of lights – whimsical-looking lanterns will do the trick.



Midsummer Night's Dream Wedding Theme Games


We think that games which can bring other couples together, one that can help your guests meet new friends, or any activities that has something to do with you and your groom, are perfect candidates for your wedding games. Here are some of our game ideas for this theme:

Find Perfect Pair

As the game title implies, this is about finding your perfect pair. Nope, we don’t mean pairing your single female guests to your male ones, at least not literally. This is about finding the other half of the butterfly cut-out assigned to them in the shortest amount of time. Since involving everybody might lead to a disastrous activity, we suggest that you just single out a select few of your and your groom’s (single) friends for this game.

The pair who finds their other half the fastest definitely deserves a couple of prizes!

Name That Tune

You need tons of favorites that you can play during the wedding, with your guests attempting to guess the title based on the tune. To make this game perfect for a midsummer night wedding, we suggest that the music be played by a harpist or a flutist. That should give this the right theme-based twist, which should make it a good addition as a midsummer night wedding activity.

The guest table with the most number of correctly named tunes definitely deserves some cool prizes.

Perfect Catch

You will need numerous pairs of your male and female guests for this game.

The goal of the game is for one of the players to catch all the tosses made by his/her partner. The person doing the toss should do the toss like a typical bridal bouquet toss. To make the experience more interesting, let your male guests do the tossing while your female guests will do the catching.

Give your pair a time limit to do their tossing and catching. The pair with the most number of catches within said time will be your winning pair!

To make this a perfect addition for a midsummer night wedding, make sure your bouquet is composed of June flowers and throw in some vine or two in the bunch.

Other Wedding Activities

Hiring some professionals to perform on weddings is becoming more popular nowadays and if you are of the same mind, then you will find these ideas useful.

Depending on your wedding’s budget, you might want to consider hiring a production that will entertain your guests with this wonderful comedy. If you don’t think this is something you want on your wedding, then a group of harpist and/or flutist rendering your favorites is something you can consider. Either of these activities can set the right atmosphere for your midsummer night wedding.
