Because our wedding is only a week after my favorite holiday, we decided to incorporate some “spooky” Halloween fun into it.
We’re starting off by having a ghost tour after the rehearsal dinner for any interested guests. We secured a group rate with Old Town Trolley Tours to go on their “Ghosts and Gravestones Frightseeing Tour”. The tour is about an hour and a half long and is (according to their website) “an evening of fun, scares, humor and ghost stories as you are guided through America’s Most Haunted City.”
But the fun doesn’t stop there! For the wedding day, we’ve let our guests know that we are “Thrilling the Reception”! I linked up the website “Thrill the World” to the guest update page of our wedding website so our guests can learn the ever popular Thriller dance. So far, we have most of the wedding party and a few of the guests committed to reenacting the dance in its entirety on the dance floor! I’m especially proud of Mr. Lab for taking an interest in rehearsing it and surprised at how quick of a learner he is (especially for someone who claims he can’t dance!).
I can’t wait to see how our practice pays off. But even if we don’t perfect the dance in time, we’ll do as the instructor says and play it off by acting like a ghoul for a few dance counts. No harm, no foul. 🙂
By the way, I figured I’d share a photo of Mr. Lab’s and my costumes! Special thanks to the hive for helping me decide on an costume!
Mr. Lab was a nerd and I was his mail-order bride! Pay close attention to his name and address on the shipping label. 😉 And nevermind our friend “Heidi” in the back. It’s just one of our wedding guests who flew all the way in from Germany! LOL 😀
If your wedding is close to a holiday, are you incorporating it somehow?
