Swords, fire spinning, and a little Monty Python #Reader Round-up#colored veil#couples of color#fire dancing#mismatched-bridesmaids#renaissance#sword October 22 | Catherine Clark enidjcoleslaw Photo by Syd London Photography We've seen Jenni and Karen before at their queer Hindu vintage fashion wedding, and you know we are excited about this part deux that they submitted to the Flickr Pool! Red dress, red sari, gloves, bangles, and fire! We also saw quite a few photos with swords, some Knights of Ni, and even a little Gangnam Style. Check out what reader submissions came in from the Offbeat Bride Tribe, Pinterest, and the Flickr Pool. Cat and her groom grin under their archway of swords! Photo by a family member YAY, another wedding with swords! Pixiesquacktoo's bridesmaids were miffed at not getting their own weapons, so they confiscated the men's swords for this shot. Photo by Orlando Claffey Pixiesquacktoo also had this amazing photo of a volunteer fire spinner who entertained at the reception. Photo by Orlando Claffey Tribesmaid Lunapuella's dad and her groom's dad performed a skit as the Knights of Ni from Monty Python. Coolest dads ever award, anyone? Photo by Koen Tornij I'm surprised this is the first Gangnam Style reference I've seen in reader submissions. This one from Rhuester is Mario-influenced.

The whole wedding party was decked in gorgeous renaissance garb for a sweet... [more] Amy's bridesmaid is sporting one of those convertible dresses, and I LOVE how her ink looks in that perfect spot.

Toggle comments [ 7 ] That Boston.com link is amazing? Tornadoes? Floods? Bride stealing? I don't normally bother to click on the clicky links, but that was awesome. 1 agrees Reply Yay, our awesome dads made it into the montage! 1 agrees Reply My wedding was two weeks ago, and after a wedding party Time Warp, my husband spontaneously put on Gangnam Style (we had his father DJ, so it was no big deal for him to take control for a minute). At least a dozen people leaped in and started dancing. The photographers were on their way out the door, but stuck around to get a few photos of it. Hopefully we'll get to see them soon 0 agree Reply Do not worry, more Gangnam style coming soon. We have a few shots of the bridesmaids "practicing" while getting ready, then some sweet moves on the dance floor. I anticipate a whole slew of Gangnam in the future…and I feel like for once in my life, I'm in on a meme at the beginning rather than after everyone else in the world has heard of it! 3 agree Reply The Mario/Gangnam style one is mine! Submitted it to the pool without remembering to put my Tribe username. Suit coat on the right is Mr Groom, left is Best Man. Best friends since kindergarten. 0 agree Reply Oh my god… the monty python skit? That is totally what my dad would do. I think I will keep this in my memory log for the future. Also, comic relief at a wedding seems like a great idea 0 agree Reply really like this idea, the grooms men in big antlers is really cool! 0 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
