Ideas to Build Parade Floats

Create a Wedding Party Parade Float

Posted by paradefloats on July 15, 2012

There’s always a limo. Or a trolley. Maybe even a horse-drawn carriage. But why do what everyone else does? When it comes to the wedding party, they should arrive at the reception in style, and it should make a major statement. Create a wedding party parade float and the wedding will be the talk of the town!

Set up the Mini Parade

There are a few ways this can be set up. If the venue for the reception isn’t too far from the ceremony, the entire wedding party can travel parade-style from one place to the next. There could just be one parade float that carries the bride, groom and the entire wedding party. Another way to do it is to have separate floats. The first float could be the groomsmen, the second the bridesmaids, and the third and final float could be the finale- the bride and groom.


Picking colors for the parade float(s) should be easy since wedding colors are already established. Decorate with fringe, tissue festooning, and floral sheeting in the colors of the wedding.


Will the parade float(s) be silly and leave wedding guests laughing, or will they be serious and romantic, tugging at wedding guests heart strings? Make sure the bride and groom agree to the direction of the float(s). They may want to mix things up by having the wedding party floats fun and silly, and their arrival at the reception as husband and wife, romantic and touching.

Make it Official

Don’t leave people wondering what all the fuss is about! Make sure you announce what your mini parade is for by having a personalized banner. Have it include the name of the newlyweds. If appropriate, hang the banner up at the reception. To turn it into a keepsake, have guests sign the banner with their well wishes for the bride and groom.

Get the Party Goin’

The wedding party can’t arrive at the reception without some good music. Make a mix of the bride and groom’s favorite songs and have it playing as the floats arrive at the reception.

A wedding party parade float is definitely thinking outside the box, but it’s a fun idea that will make the day extra special and very unique!
