As a science major, I’ve always had a fascination with chemistry. Some people love biology, some people love physics, but chemistry was always my choice of science. Besides chemical reactions, composition, and properties, chemistry also means the interaction of one personality with another. So wouldn’t you agree that having a chemistry themed wedding or event is the perfect way to show your geeky side or your love for each other? Check out some of these brilliant science inspired event elements!
Need a way to say “I love you” to your significant other or even your closest friends? This mini art print is perfect to give to people you want to show your “luv” to. They can easily frame this and hang it up on their wall to show off to everyone. This is also a great sign to display at the entrance of your wedding! It’s cute and gives your guests that chemistry feeling right as they start the celebration of your biggest day. (via Society 6)
Decorate your event with test tubes and test tube holders. Fill them up with colored liquids or sand that matches your color theme. Or you can even use them as little vases. For bigger flowers, use different sized beakers, graduated cylinders, or Erlenmeyer flasks. Don’t they look perfect? (via Alders Photography)
Besides using test tube holders as little vases, they can also be used for seating assignments! Just place a different element symbol on each assignment to tell guests which table they should be sitting at. Instead of using table numbers, you can use element symbols. Let’s see if your guests can figure out which element they are! (via Gideon Photo)
To get your guests engaged into your chemistry theme, you can get them to participate in a little “experiment.” As favors, you can get your guests to mix up “elements” (in this case, bath salts) to their liking. Once they think their mixture is perfect, they can take it home! With an idea like this, your guests will go home feeling like they made the perfect concoction and even have bath salts for a relaxing bath! (via Gideon Photo)
From beakers to test tubes, chemistry is all around! Using some of the things we experimented with in class and lab is a great way to show off your fun and intelligent side. Different chemistry notations complete the whole chemistry inspired vibe. So when people talk about the chemistry of love, they do mean all the chemicals that race through your brain and body when you’re in love. And even though there isn’t any special love potions, chemistry inspired themed events could just be the thing to get your blood racing and be excited when you see the one you love. So, does anyone know any jokes about sodium? “Na.”
