Can I use crazy props as wedding accessories?

Wacky Wedding Accessories

The last thing your guests are going to expect is a squirt of water from a strategically placed squirt gun, or the sound of a buzzer when you shake their hands after the ceremony. If you're known for your crazy sense of humor or your jokester personality, why not introduce a few props to your guests on your wedding day? People normally think of wedding accessories as things like candles, guest books, plume pens, and corsages, but there's no rule that says your wedding accessories can't be comedy tools. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

1) Instead of bouquets of flowers, have the bridesmaids carry squirt guns down the aisle (fully loaded with water of course).

2) Make sure your bridesmaids and the groomsmen all have cell phones on them, and make sure they're turned on! Arrange for one of the guests to keep calling their phone numbers throughout the ceremony. Your wedding party will know what's going on, but the rest of the guests won't. If you're a good actor, make sure to act really annoyed.

3) Crossword puzzles and pencils. Wedding accessories should include items to keep your wedding party from getting bored during the ceremony.

Of course, these are pretty tame practical jokes, so feel free to ratchet it up a notch. You know your friends and family better than anyone else, so gauge exactly how low-brow you want to go with your plans. It's possible that nobody has ever used a Whoopie cushion as a wedding accessory before, but you could be the first.
