Science, Math, Pop Culture!: Nerdy wedding invitations

This post features offbeat affiliates, meaning that if you buy something featured, you'll be financially supporting this site's mission of bringing awesomeness to readers everywhere.

I profiled nerdy Save the Dates about a year ago — now it's time for some geektastical wedding invitations in your face. So wipe off your glasses and get a real good look at these geek wedding invites. Some of them are for sale right now, and some of them were genius DIY projects from genius nerds in love, concerning science, math, video games, Doctor Who, and (of course) Star Wars. There's even a comic book invitation perfect for those of you who've been dreaming of custom comic book invites, but don't have the artistic skills to pull it off. I'm geeking out over ALL of these guys…


Science!

  3. Coming up on our 20th anniversary now, so we're hardly newlyweds, but we did do a Doctor Who themed wedding invite back in the day. An artist friend of ours (also my bridesdude, since I didn't have enough female friends to have bridesmaids) drew a lovely silhouette picture of hubby and me in our old LARP costumes from the Atlanta sci-fi con scene; it was embossed in metallic Tardis blue on cards with the slogan "We all have two hearts: one to keep, and one to give away." :)

  4. Is there ANY way I can get my hands on the dino wedding invitation, or get in touch with whoever made them? Thanks!
