With the movie Jurassic World due out next month, it’s reignited excitement about all things dinosaur. But for some brides and grooms, T-Rex was already a must-have guest. And here are 10 ideas you can steal from them…
The people here look a little too relaxed about what’s coming up fast behind them. Do they not realise this shot has three, count them three, dinosaurs on the rampage? A real triple threat. And who even knew T-Rex liked the beach?
Fall at your feet
We’re pretty sure John Hammond would be * spoiler alert* rolling in his grave (read the actual book) at the sight of such a magical creature ending up in this position. But we think the glitter really brings out the dino’s eyes…
Take your seat
You know how many modern couples have that invitation to pick a seat, not a side? Well this big guy is going to watch proceedings from exactly where he is. And we’re more than cool with that.

Your chariot awaits
Hmmmm. We seem to have remember no good coming from a trip in these spared-no-expense 4WDs. But as long as it doesn’t stop near the Tyrannasour paddock we should be alright.
And eat it too
Talk about a dinosaur atop a cake, and most people would expect to see two plastic figures done up like the bride and groom – and perhaps locked in mortal combat. But as this confection shows, you can be classy and into carnivores.

At first glance, these walkway markers look so cute. Hearts, patterns and pastels – what’s not to love? But then you look closer and realise something – with big teeth – is hiding in plain sight. By the time you’ve seen them, it’s too late to run.

Language of love
Since we’re not an expert in dinosaur linguistics, we’ll have to take their word on the translation. But “I love you” is certainly a fitting message to share with guests as they take advantage of a quirky and beautiful take on a wishing well.

It’s OK team, that’s a vegesaurus, not a meatasaurus. And how nice to see one of Jurassic Park’s friendly dinos claiming the spotlight in a cute display of escort cards. Plus, you know they won’t try to steal your steak when you look away!

Many couples find guests welcome a spot where they can sit down and relax away from the excitement of the wedding. And if there happens to be a talkasaururs rex there to indulge in conversation, all the better.

You’ve heard people talk about pulling duck face in photos, but we prefer Jurassic face, especially when it gives the bride and groom the chance to pose for fun shots as they take their toys into battle. All in good fun of course…
