We love featuring a truly diverse range of real weddings, from highly stylized theme weddings to elopements to uber-simple no decor weddings.
We heart this casual New Zealand wedding with lawn games, lots o' kids, and even more paper flowers. Plus, you'll love the groom's skull ring, the bride's retro dress, and their sweet favorite moment. And just wait until you see how they almost missed their officiant at the ceremony!
When you're planning a wedding in a lovely theater and have a new baby, what better theme is there than to combine these two into a theater-loving, baby-adoring wedding? With "Mommy and Daddy are Getting Married" as the slogan, these two created Playbill programs, VIP place card lanyards, and sported their favorite accessory: their nine-month-old son!
Y'aaaaar! A pirate's wedding for me! This geeky pair loves pirates and loves costumes EVEN MORE! So when it came to getting all the guests involved, these two did some serious pirate strong-arming and it totally worked. There were corsets, swords instead of bouquets, and no landlubbers in sight.
A grand mosaic art-piece venue, Mexican vegan menu, a swing-y retro dress, and some Curious George — this is one visually stimulating wedding! Rain may have added some last-minute scrambling, but when you see it, you'll know it was worth it. And don't miss the sand mishap in the unity ceremony!
This pair wanted to stay true to themselves despite overwhelming pressure from friends and family. But they found the right balance between pressure and advice and totally made it work. We're now looking at a gorgeous outdoor wedding-in-the-round, bicycle-themed decor, and a two-day celebration that allowed for a reception free from anxiety.
Time Lords, Daleks, the TARDIS, and two hearts… this truly is a Doctor Who extravaganza. The groom tells this tale and you can totally tell that this is truly his dream wedding. We're psyched that this geek boy found his perfect geek girl. Oh, and just try to keep the tears at bay when you read the groom's vows. Siiiiigh.
This philanthropic pair made sure that everyone from their esteemed colleagues to their artistic and genealogically-inclined friends had something awesome to do besides dancing at their reception. Add that to their spectacular venue and vintage Caddy ambulance getaway car, and you'll be in love. Oh, and get your hankies for the father/daughter dance photo!
This pair chose a sleek Las Vegas hotel suite as the venue for their intimate wedding. Some Portal and Mass Effect details, a super sexy burgundy gown, and even a surprise tuxedo shirt were some of the awesome details that made this wedding all their own. Plus, you'll love the bride's favorite moment (spoiler: it's before the wedding!).
This three-day celebration is all about color, amazing hand-carved landscapes, and fab entertainment. We're talking stilt-walkers, costumes, lasers, and a pre-wedding disco party where everyone wore bridesmaids dresses! And just wait until you see how these two crafted their rings. Hint: it involves a neuroscientist!
This pair loves their Elder Scrolls and Game of Thrones and managed to seamlessly integrate their geeky interests into their decor. They also totally found a way to hack their social anxiety by having escape routes and special signals when things got too overwhelming. Plus, you'll love the bride's black Dr. Marten's hidden under her floofy white dress!
