I need to make a wedding reception a BIG ONE!?

My parents agreed to let me have $1,000,000 for the reception party,
does anyone have any good ideas for a SUPER reception?
Like a disco floor, jumping fountains, fog, tabletop fountains, etc.???
please let me know!!!
THANKS!

Your parents are punking you.  They are going to put all the bills in your name and then after you are married you'll have a 1M$ debt.  It's a way to teach you the value of a $1.

i dont think they are punking me because they own 2 range rovers, 5 imacs,  a ferrari, several ipods, a 20,000 bottle wine cellar, and over 2.7 million in stocks.
i dont think they are punking me. 
Did you really come here for answers or are you just bragging?  2.7 m in stocks ain't that much anymore.

 i guess it isnt alot. im needing reccomendations for a great wedding reception.
If is was spending that much money one a single event I would definitely hire a professional planner.

And for sure get Me And My Monkey to play at the dance!
And why's your parents spending on this wedding?  Tradition has it that the girl's parents pay for the wedding.  Or is there not a girl involved?

I've looked at your questions kiddo,-they tend to suggest a lack of funds....?

Surely you could solve many problems with your $999,999- for a thousand you could book out a McDonald's, and feed everyone,-...and they could go outside and play afterwards...., and you could have streamers......., and ballooons........., and...... fantasy is a wonderful thing isn't it?? {0_~}!!

I agree that its a sham. 

Either way; Elope, and keep the million.

May I recommend choreographing an awesome surprise dance for the first dance?

Spend $10,000 on a reception, $230,000 on a house, use some to travel, and  get your kids, assuming, through college. Invest the rest in gold.
Be reasonable.

You're 17, so I highly doubt you're getting married.

 i simply want to have those rotating lights, www.robe.cz

a disco floor,

tabletop fountain centerpieces, and MORE!

I need some reasonable ideas!

The beer will be 5 kegs there!

charity will do good!

@lemonie , i could have imacs everywhere!
maybe just free ipod touches as thank you gifts!
Hire the Flying Elvi to skydive into the reception in formation, carrying the wedding cake.
And then hire me to do your centerpieces out of recycled glass. I'll give you my special discount for Instructables members and everything.

Spend it ALL on fireworks.
And beer. Fireworks and beer.

I totally, completely agree without any reservation. (excepting what I said otherwise)

That's an obscene amount to spend on one day.
Think about what you'd really like - not what you could spend "it" on - what would do you best for that one day in your life. A massive amount of spend (and I doubt that this is real considering you've not forked-out for paid-membership) isn't going to help you remember the union of yourself with your partner, your family with theirs more than a bit of thought and planning.

Give $990k to charity and buy some nibbles and champagne.

With 1 million bucks? I would hire a pro, tell him/her what I want and concern myself with other issues.
