Let's face it–some weddings can be, well, boring (especially if you're not the dancing type). You're probably happy to be there, just to support the couple as they commit their lives to each other forever. But sometime between the rubbery chicken dinner and the encore performance of the Cha Cha Slide, you're bound to be sitting there thinking to yourself, "This wedding would be so much better if there was a bounce house."

And you know what? Because the world's not fair, chances are there is a couple somewhere in the world at that exact moment who are treating their guests to three or four uninterrupted hours of carefree castle bouncing. Or piñata smashing. Or crafting confetti recipes. I can say that confidently because I found those weddings. And I brought them all here to share with you.

There's this Minnesota backyard wedding with a bounce house (above).
