OK, this next one is little strange. At some point during the wedding planning, I was thinking “What are unique ways I can brand our wedding?” and for some bizarre reason I came up with the idea of making temporary tattoos with our (KH)² logo.
For a long time, I sat on this idea because I was afraid if I told Mr. Funnel Cake he would think I’d completely lost it with wedding planning. But as the wedding drew closer I decided I wanted to do it for real, so I asked him about it. Yes, he thought I was weird, but he didn’t mind if we had silly fake tattoos at our reception. Whatever pleases the bride!
I quickly designed a 1.5″ square tattoo and ordered 200 clear tattoos from Tattoo Manufacturing for $43 with a discount. I really hoped that it wasn’t a scam and that my credit card information would be OK! The tattoos arrived safe and sound. Each tat had a clear cover and instructions on the backside.
We decided these were best distributed on the opening table with the favours, so I made a small sign to go on the bowl Mama Funnel Cake provided. You can bet she thought this was a weird idea, but it turns out the guests loved the tattoos!
The kids at the reception especially enjoyed the tattoos, and some of my little relatives had arms plastered full of them. I was so happy they were a hit! Either that, or all my friends and family were patronizing me so I didn’t feel bad on my wedding day.
Mr. Funnel Cake and I didn’t have time to try out the tattoos on the big day, but we did the next morning before heading out to spend time with family.

I’m really happy I decided to go with my gut and make my idea happen!
Did you have any crazy ideas you made a reality for your wedding?
