Wedding dress? Check. Rings? Check. Jumping castle? Check.

Wait, what?

Yep, crowding into a photo-booth with your Aunt Susan, three of your drunk colleagues and a pair of oversized novelty glasses is SO passé. The latest in wedding trends is entertaining your guests with a jumping castle. And we are so here for this.

UK company, A Wedding Wonderland, unexpectedly went viral recently when they shared photos of their bridal-themed jumping castles, which are now available for hire. "These castles provide hours of fun for adults and children while also providing a quirky backdrop for wedding photos," they write on their website.

Seriously, can you imagine the hilarious photo possibilities? (Once you've removed your high heels, and put your champagne down of course).

The best part is, you can customise your jumping castle to match the theme of your wedding - from classic to colourful and everything in between.

Talk about the perfect solution to the "what-on-earth-do-we-do-with-the-kids-at-the-reception" scenario ...

While you might prefer a classier white look, if you're planning a wedding and now can't imagine it sans bounce, then why not follow these couples' leads:

If the response to A Wedding Wonderland's posts are anything to go by, you'll soon be seeing these castles everywhere. "We are currently dealing with unprecedented levels of booking requests," the company wrote on Facebook, adding that due to the high demand they're now only taking bookings for venues in North East England. 

With the hottest wedding of the year taking place on 19 May, there's one key question on our minds: are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on-trend enough to have included one of these bouncy palaces part of their big day? Because oh-boy would we love to see Queen Liz celebrating the Royal nuptials on a jumping castle (like this fetching example), with her grandbabies.

No pressure guys, but seriously, please make that happen.
