Too much of a cute thing??

You guys know that fish are playing a prominent role in our wedding since we met online. 
Here's what I have so far that's fish-themed:
- cake table/head table decorations (long tall vases filled with live goldfish) and smaller vases for a few bettas -separate tubes so we don't have a bloody fish war on our hands!
- a couple of fish bowls with goldfish or bettas in them on tables
- white chocolate and milk chocolate fish molds to top the cupcakes depending on which flavor of icing picked
-- favors - chocolate aquarium rocks with goldfish crackers in a paper chocolate cake slice
-- RSVP cards have goldfish pictured on them

I don't want a traditional guest book. I'm never going to look at a book of signatures. I saw the idea for an alternative guest book - a wish bowl -- and I thought how cool it would be to do something like that with a GIANT fish bowl for our wedding.

What I'm wondering is this -- is this just TOO much of a cute fish theme?

    No WAY!  I love it!  It all sounds super cute.  You will have to post some pictures.

    If you use the fishbowl for your wishes, you also need to have fish shaped cards for people to write on!

    I'm all for the wish bowl.  It sounds like fun.

    Definitely do the wishbowl and on fish shaped paper.  It's fun to go back and read what people write.  To get the fish shapes, you may want to invest in a die cut machine, like a cricut or Sizzix machine (Sizzix will be the cheaper option).  Then can cut them yourself in whatever colors you want.
