There’s no doubt about it: Weddings are a time for celebration. If you’re looking to go all out for your reception or after-party, then you’re going to love the latest trend in wedding fun: Brides and grooms are renting bouncy castles for their wedding party and guests to enjoy.
Gone is the stereotype that weddings need to be serious, stuffy affairs. You and your guests will feel like kids again, jostling around inside an inflatable bouncy castle. Talk about memorable — we can’t think of anything better to make sure everyone is able to let loose and have a good time!
There are companies in the U.K. such as A Wedding Wonderland, 1 Entertainment and Mr. Bouncy Castle, which have become popular among wedding planners.
If you rent from one of those companies, you’ll get a bounce castle that will fit your wedding — because this isn’t your average kids’ party tent here. Instead, these are all-white and fitting for a formal (but fun) affair.
Here’s a shot of a fun-loving bride and groom letting loose in a bouncy house. What a memorable photo that will make!
Another company called Vowed and Amazed provided brides and grooms with a blue-and-white-striped bouncy castle. (Perhaps an idea for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to consider?)
Wouldn’t this make the perfect backdrop for hilarious wedding photos full of of LOL-worthy candid moments?
Here’s another example from A Wedding Wonderland that’s dressed up with colorful flowers. How fun! (Also, you won’t have to worry about kids being bored at your wedding reception if you have a bounce house.)
Unfortunately, there don’t seem to be companies with wedding-ready bounce houses available in the U.S. just yet. But you could still rent a bouncy house for the occasion — go on and get creative!
This photo, shared on Instagram by ‘Til I DIY, shows a bride and groom jumping in a traditional multi-colored bouncy house that you might see at a kid’s birthday party — and it looks like a ton of fun!
Even better, rent one for your bachelor and bachelorette parties instead. Then the color won’t matter nearly as much. (We just recommend you do your bouncing before any drinking begins, for obvious reasons. And here’s a good suggested list of other rules to follow!)

Animal lovers will be pleased to know that there’s an animal therapy center in Oregon that rents llamas for weddings and other special occasions. The llamas can even arrive dressed up in costumes and all proceeds go to Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas’ therapy and education program.
