Wedding pranks are not for every family but if they are right for yours here are a couple of suggested wedding pranks. May they help inspire your creative energy and desire to help the wedding couple create wonderful and funny wedding day memories. When deciding on a prank you can be original or not, but it is important to make it fun.
First of all, let me begin by saying the wedding ceremony is considered sacred to many people, so during the ceremony is not the time for a wedding prank. However, after the couple is married, let the fun begin. It is time to create some memories and make sure the wedding day isn’t perfect. Why not have a perfect wedding day; free of wedding pranks? Preparing for a wedding takes time, energy and money and getting married is a life time commitment but what better way to prepare the happy couple for what is to come-the marriage– than to upset the cart a little with humor and stress relieving wedding pranks. Of course, if the bride and groom are both unusually humorless and serious then you probably should just wish them well and forget the wedding pranks.
However, symbolic wedding pranks can challenge them to relate to each other on deeper emotional levels.
Consider this popular prank: Fill their wedding night get-away car with packaging peanuts and don’t forget the glove compartment or the trunk. This is a relatively harmless prank but as they unpack their car they might come up with some creative ways to resolve future conflicts. Will the newlyweds meticulously clean out their car, borrow a friend’s car, figure out who did it and plan a revenge or will they be so enthralled with each other that they won’t let anything so simple as packaging peanuts get to them?
Another thing newlyweds don’t usually consider is dealing with interruptions. They don’t understand that children and pets and neighbors and in-laws add new dimensions to finding time for each other. This prank will help them develop a tougher skin, hopefully. You see, wedding pranks can be done for the best of reasons.
If you know where the newlyweds will be spending their first night together as a couple have a trusted friend get a key to the room. Oh sure, you could do things like spray shaving cream messages on the mirror with best wishes or phone numbers or any number of little touches throughout the room to distract them…but to truly inspire the newlyweds and to really drive home the importance of how to effectively deal with interruptions, try this wedding prank.
Once gaining access to the newlywed’s room set several alarm clocks to go off after midnight in 20 minute increments. This also simulates their first night as parents so well and will give them the inspiration they need to make time for each other. Oh yes, don’t forget to hide the clocks. A little hide and seek with clocks will add a bit of play to what might be (yes, I’m choosing to be naive) a tense or nervous time.

Let me close this article with a slightly personal note: Sis, this one is for you-you won’t see it coming. Love you. Seriously, sis I wouldn’t pull a wedding prank on you. You know I prescribe to the concept that sometimes the best prank is no prank at all -but you do also know, I don’t speak for everyone else. I just want you to have some wonderful wedding memories.
