Jurassic Park Wedding Inspiration

Steven Spielberg's blockbuster hit takes center-aisle in Courtney and Bill’s roaring nuptials.

Throughout Courtney and Bill’s relationship, "Jurassic Park," which focuses on a select group of attendees chosen to tour an island theme park populated by dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA, has always been a go-to movie for the pair. The two started to make “dinosaur dates,” and go to different dinosaur-themed exhibits and of course the two newer films: "Jurassic World," and "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom." 

From an authentic-looking “Jurassic Park” car, to dinosaur décor, these ideas are (Tricera)tops!

Sorry, we had to.

Getting Ready

Jurassic Park Theme Wedding Bridesmaids Popping Champagne

The bridal party wore "Jurassic Park" t-shirts to get ready, while Courtney wore a leaf-themed getting-ready robe over hers.

Even Courtney's gorgeous Hayley Paige gown felt magical and fit the other-worldy vibe of the picture-perfect wedding. 

Jurassic Park Theme Wedding Socks

The groomsmen wore "Jurassic Park" socks.

The outdoor setting, where Courtney works as an event manager honing her wedding planning skills, transformed into the ultimate "Jurassic Park" venue.  

Wedding Vows with Jurassic Park Motif

Even Courtney's vows offered a nod to the major motion picture.

The pair walked down the aisle to the "Jurassic Park" theme song. 


Courtney chose greenery to emulate the rustic, outdoorsy-island vibe of the film. She DIY’d the florals, which included an array of greenery: Italian ruscus, salal stems, Israeli ruscus, pittosporum stems, and tree ferns.

Courtney added some hanging amaranthus and a few air plants to add bulk to the bouquet.

Ring Bearer on Dinosaur

The ring bearer got a special ride on a Triceratops. 


Jurassic Park Wedding Reception

The color palette and green uplighting perfectly reflect "Jurassic Park" in a subtle, elevated way. 

 Seating Chart

There were small gold dinosaurs on each place setting and the escort cards doubled as favors. Courtney and Bill had actual VIP IDs printed with each guests name.

The wedding cake was reminiscent of the film's color scheme.

Jurassic Park Place Setting

The place settings featured small golden dinosaurs, large leaves, and a "Jurassic Park" themed menu. 

Sweetheart Table

The sweetheart table displayed more dinosaurs, and an abundance of greenery and exposed lights. 

Dancing T-Rex

There was even a real T-Rex appearance on the dance floor!

Jurassic Park car

Courtney’s dream car has always been a Jeep Wrangler, so she thought it would be fun to recreate the "Jurassic Park"Jeep for the wedding.
