If you and your partner love nothing more than a cosy night in watching Jurassic Park or you just really identify with Ross from Friends and his passion for the prehistoric then perhaps you need to consider a dinosaur wedding theme. A dinosaur wedding day doesn’t have to be garish and can actually be really pretty and elegant – take a look at some of our favourite ways to include this unusual wedding theme in your day.

Include a Dinosaur Inspired Reading
If you are looking for a romantic reading and still want to include your love for dinosaurs then we have the perfect reading for you! A Lovely Love Story by Edward Monkton is one of our all-time favourite wedding readings and talks about two dinosaurs who are different but fall in love and spend a happy and calm existence together.
Some of our favourite quotes from this reading include:
“The fierce Dinosaur was trapped inside his cage of ice. Although it was cold he was happy in there. It was, after all, his cage.
“Then along came the Lovely Other Dinosaur. The Lovely Other Dinosaur melted the Dinosaur’s cage with kind words and loving thoughts.
“I like this Dinosaur thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur. Although he is fierce he is also tender and he is funny. He is also quite clever though I will not tell him this for now.”
Wear Dinosaur Bridal Jewellery
