Swing Wedding Theme
Posted: Sep 30, 2010 2:31 PM

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking of trying to tie in a swing/swing set theme into my wedding, as my fiance proposed to me on the swings at our favorite playground that we spent a lot of time at together growing up.

Does anyone have any good ideas of how we could tie this into the invitations, centerpieces, decorations, etc?!

Any suggestions would be great appreciated!

Hmmm, I thought you meant swing music and was going to suggest some 30's-40's ideas. Swing set/playground sounds a little child's birthday party to me. Other than including some photos in a collage or slide show, my inclination would be to do something a bit more sophisticated. However, that's me. If you really love the playground idea, I imagine you can get little toys to add to your decor at a children's toy or party store. You could do a groom's cake with a swing set on it--bakers can add a photo of just about anything to a cake. You could, possibly, even hold your wedding in a park, if that's your choice.

Dear Kara,

Like Myra, I thought of swing music, too, when I saw your post.

Sometimes when a person thinks of a theme for a party, they imagine that theme on everything. I have a mental picture of some kind of playground swing graphic on each and every item associated with your wedding: stationery, centerpieces, decorations, etc.

I suggest you scale that down. You don't want your wedding to be mistaken for a children's party.

I suggest you use the swing in one place only: On the cake. Wedding cakes are whimsical, anyway, so little bride and groom figureines in a swing at the tope of the wedding cake would look cute. As you cut the cake, say a few words about the significance of the swing.

That would be in good taste, IMHO. People would get the idea, have a little chuckle, then move on.
