These UK gamers certainly know how to put effort into their decor — you might lose your shit over their amazing papercraft centerpieces based on game developers. But it's the little touches that made us grin: the Calvin & Hobbes vows, the kitty collar moment, the serenade-turned-glass crash moment(!), and of course, the big love for their friends and family. This is a geektastic-meets-metal winner, you guys.

We love featuring a truly diverse range of real weddings, from highly stylized theme weddings to elopements to uber-simple no decor weddings.
Pretzels, a German cup ceremony, and astronauts — what do these things have in common? If you said this locally-focused and low-impact wedding in a super eclectic venue, you were right. Plus, you'll also get some ultra valuable advice about pre-marital counseling. And don't forget to spy the burlesque dance at the reception!
A gazebo, a bier garten, a pizza and cake buffet, and the Texas Hill Country backdrop — this springtime wedding has my heart palpitating with glee. Loads of DIY projects went into this wedding and all the love and care totally shows. Plus, this couple's community totally came together to get it all ready. Don't miss their special kind of reception dance to "Teach Your Children Well," too!
This pair of Chinese Aussies were not ready to take on a whole bunch of Chinese traditions for their wedding, but they did inject a little tradition in the form of some quick door games and an informal tea ceremony. Take a peek at how they combined their bookish, fabric flower-loving, and independent ideals into this sweet lil' wedding. Oh, and wait until you see how the bride protected her dress en route to the venue!
Not everyone dreams of slogging for seven miles of muddy obstacle terrain in a big dress on their wedding day, but this bride knew it would be a bad-ass memory. She and her groom trekked the Super Spartan Race for 7.1 miles in their heavy, hot finery, to end on a romantic ceremony covered head-to-toe in mud. Ah, dirty dirty love.
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, the cocktail, and the midi — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got a couple who opted for an early-morning sunrise ceremony, with all of the challenges and gorgeous scenery that entails. You'll definitely want to hear how they handled the venue and vendors for this particular challenge.
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got a couple of voracious readers getting bookishly wed in an adorable two-room school-house complete with book page flowers, "yay" flags, and a really sweet tribute to the grandparents.
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got a backyard wedding with family vows, Mad-Libs, polka dots, trivia, and tons of pizza. How did these two know exactly what we wanted to see today? Perk up your midweek with this super sweet, family-centric wedding on a Tuesday.
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got the perfect adult summer camp: lawn games, a beer truck, tents, and a s'mores bar. Oh, and two of the cutest skateboarding and crafting couples this side of Camp North Star.
This pair were already super psyched to get married, but having the ceremony at a cystic fibrosis walk (which is close to the bride's heart), made it all the more personal and amazing. Don't miss the groom's day-glow green suit, the bride's grandmother's dress that she remade to her own design, and the super funny ribbon "cutting" ceremony. Get ready to feel like happy gooey butter after seeing this wedding.
