Introduce your anime wedding theme to friends and family with an anime themed “Save the Date” card! For the photo on your card, consider booking a Japanese-themed studio on Peerspace to take your photos.

Your pics could feature Mount Fuji in the background for a natural backdrop or the streets of Tokyo if you’re a city lover!

Tip #3: Decorate with anime art

Fill the reception walls with anime art for your wedding! On Peerspace, you can find tons of fun artsy spaces that may match your theme, or you can work with a Peerspace venue host that lets you hang your own anime art.

It might also be fun to commission an artist to draw an anime-style picture of you and your spouse to hang on the wall at the venue… and then treasure forever, of course!

Tip #4: Celebrate with traditional lantern lighting

Toro Nagashi, which translates to “floating lanterns,” is an August celebration in Japan, marking the end of the buddhist festival of O-bon. The floating lanterns are set afloat to commemorate the souls of ancestors past.

Even if you don’t have an August wedding planned, this is still a fun activity to plan into an anime wedding theme!

Tip #5: Design an anime-themed cake

Don’t forget the anime details in your wedding — like the decorations on your wedding cake! One fun idea is to offer guests Pokemon cake pops instead of a traditional cake at the wedding.

Or for a more traditional look, how about a fondant wedding cake with cherry blossom motifs?

Tip #6: Schedule some Yosakoi dancing

If you’ve seen “Hanayamata” you are probably pretty familiar with Yosakoi dancing. This fun style of dance mixes traditional and modern Japanese dance and would be a great dance feature for your reception.

Even better if you can get your whole bridal party to dress in the elaborate and decorative Yosakoi costumes for a planned performance!
