When people heard that we were having a LEGO-themed wedding, the looks on their faces were as if I'd just told them I was going to walk down the aisle with chopsticks sticking out of my nose! But LEGO allowed me to get creative… like buying tubs of it off of Craigslist, washing them in my bathtub, and letting them dry for three days on our kitchen floor (dangerous stuff) before building decor with them.
Even the day of the wedding, I was worried that people would think our LEGO-themed wedding was more like a 10-year-old's birthday party. I was really excited about our centerpieces being vases full of LEGO bricks so guests could interact with them and build things, but I was also scared that the guests wouldn't really get it. I can't describe how happy I was when, during the cocktail hour, my mom came outside and told me that guests, young and old, had already started dumping out the centerpieces and getting to work. Apparently things got vicious and people were stealing bricks from other tables!
The LEGO centerpiece idea is just the beginning of the awesomeness from Jess's full wedding profile…
Comments on Steal this interactive LEGO centerpiece idea
Yay! My brother and sis-in-law has a “LEGO and plane” themed wedding. It was classy as hell (in the Museum of Flight), with DIY LEGO minifigs as favors, LEGO airplane kits at every table, and a LEGO airstrip on a side table (complete with LEGO flight tower that lit up and contained bride and groom minifigs) where guests were encouraged to show off their creations. It was brilliant- people loved it, and it kept them interacting and meeting others. The only downside was one child allowed to run amok, who stole 90% of the minifigs if anyone left their seat (bride and groom were unaware, parents were ambivalent, guests were unamused- some, like my fiance, downright pissed). LEGOs are a fantastic way to bring people together and encourage creativity. Good on you for prioritizing fun over stuffy! 😀
