Totally Cool California Shower, Dude!
Is your couple going to California for their honeymoon? Moving there? Coming from there? Why not have a party based on the stereotypes of the West Coast? Offer your guests plastic sunglasses when they arrive, and have them dress Rodeo Drive gaudy or totally beach bum.
The food? Heck, that's easy! Serve braised tofu with rice, and a main dish they'll recognize, too. Lots of sprouts, vegetables, whole grain breads, and so on. The drinks must include fruit punch, sparkling water, and smoothies!
Have the party at a local water park or by your pool. Of course, you'll play Beach Boys music! Heck, why not hire a couple of local beach-bum-looking kids to help you serve food and drinks at the party?
Make invitations by sticking contact paper to manila envelopes. Cut them out in the shape of surfboards (like, wow, man!) and paste a printed sheet of data on the “belly” of the board. Totally awesome! You could send your guests home with tiny seashells pressed into white, pink, or blue votive candles you slightly melted. How about little bottles of sunscreen? Beach balls? Totally cool, dude!
