It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we've got a couple fully decked-out in Halloween colors, pumpkin cakes, a costume contest, and lots of Tim Burton. Don't miss the super gross-looking (but surely tasty) blood fountain.

We love featuring a truly diverse range of real weddings, from highly stylized theme weddings to elopements to uber-simple no decor weddings.
It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we're spying a wedding full of Halloween goodies, a glam-as-hell purple reception dress, and a super meaningful ceremony from which you'll definitely want to take notes. Don't miss the R.I.P. on the cake!
It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we're drooling over the barbed wire bouquet, the hearse getaway car, the giant pork pie, and the many, many amazingly carved pumpkins by the guests. Plus, you'll never guess which Supernatural star cameoed in the photo booth…
It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we're gawking at a seriously lovely outdoor winery wedding featuring mini pumpkin place cards, a zombie-killing sword ceremony, a full moon, and some amazingly carved pumpkin centerpieces. You'll never believe how the bride found their creator.
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.
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.
