So, today I was doing some of my WC Insta feed research and I discovered a piece of content that literally makes our followers jur-ecstatic (yeah, I’m stretching it, just deal haha🦕). Dinosaurs. Yes, dinosaurs. Any time we’ve EVERRR posted about dino 'I Dos,' the photos have gotten all the likes and it makes sense. Everyone getting married these days grew up with Jurassic Park, and may have even dreamed about raptor rapture on their wedding days once upon a time ago. It’s nostalgic, it’s whimsy, and obvi there’s no risk of having these carnivorous creatures actually crashing our nuptials, so it’s a blast just to be playful with it.
We’ve seen the photographer-hacked wedding pics, you know, the ones where the couple and their wedding party are seen sprinting away from a hungry T-Rex. They started the trend, totally, but these days, the dinosaur-ta stuff that’s even cuter are the photos that feature couples in dino masks or dino suits, sharing their first looks. It’s adorable and you guys agree!! So many of you comment on these posts, saying how much you WISH you could have done something like this for your own first look. Others think it’s just such a wild way to chill the nerves and not take the day too seriously. The photographers who shoot this s*** just end up obsessing over their dino-mite couples. It’s great to have all the perfectly-curated and photojournalistic captures, but there’s also a time and a place for fun - and we’re here for it ALL-osaurus.

This is just how some of our favorite couples have been tri-assicing out this trend. If you have some time before your wedding, see if it can work for yours! Oh! And don’t cry over Chris Pratt not being your groom, we’ve already done that for you…
P.S. If you and your partner are true dino-philes, think about picking a venue with built-in dino vibes. Dinosaur Ridge in Colorado, Kualoa Ranch & Private Nature Reserve in Hawaii, etc.
