This pair wanted to celebrate their faith, their family tartans, and their EPIC Scottish clifftop scenery. They had handmade tush cushions for sitting on the rocks, kilts and tails, and a really good way to mingle AND thank you guests after the ceremony. Plus, you'll love the way they handled some objections to their wedding planning choices.

A little goth, a little geek, and a teeny wedding for us to love. Don't miss the awesome certificate of marriage, the very meaningful handfasting cords, the Gallery Serpentine custom corset dress, and the Minuscule-themed cupcakes. Plus, the bride shares some very handy advice if you're planning on rocking a corset. Oh, and you'll love the bride's hilarious way of "proposing." It worked!
A hint of vintage glam, some German-infused elements, and some sweet family vows make this wedding lovely. But it's all the lessons learned about guest lists and second wedding drama that really hit home for a lot of us. Oh, and the bride's delicious idea to put some cotton candy into the champagne! We can't resist; we're only human!
You want fun? You've got fun with this bubbly, candy-filled wedding in Australia. The bride's chic pastel goth look is the icing on this sweet little cake nugget. A white rose ceremony, the perfect first dance for a shy couple, and some all-too-familiar corset drama make this a totally relatable and lovable wedding.
An October wedding, vintage and antique details, and candidates for "most adorable bridesmaids" awards are awesome, but then you see the bride and groom. Birdcage veil, a tattoo sleeve, bespectacled dude… we're hooked. This UK couple knows how to be adorable AND throw an amazingly crafty shindig.
With some of us bundled up for the cold, nothing looks more inviting than a picnic wedding complete with baskets of homemade food, blankets on the fields of an orchard, and lawn games galore. Follow it all up with four hours of ceilidh dancing, and there's a major party on your hands!
Capetown's gorgeous scenery is the perfect backdrop for this sweet and intimate chapel wedding. You need to see this bride's necklace/shoulder jewelry AND the groom's adorable I'm-so-happy-to-marry-this-woman cheer or else our work isn't done. Our only regret is not being invited to their second ceremony in Zimbabwe!
The bride lives in black, so her dress totally had to incorporate the color. Add in her blue hair (her "something blue"), gorgeous black and white veil, their classic ride, and a tear-y groom, and you've got this gorgeous Aussie wedding with DIY details. Just wait until you see the groom at the beginning of the ceremony. Oh, and wait until you see how a five-year engagement helped them overcome a challenge.
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a vintage dress, a huge homemade Dalek (and mini flower girl Dalek!), and a wedding guide made for us to "not panic!" It's a sci-fi wedding… so say us all!
When a crocodile invites himself to the wedding, you pretty much have to show him a good time… or else! And these two totally did that with their South African dishes and Amarula, the bride's awesome gossamer wings, the Harry Potter ring book, and the sweet wine box ceremony. Check out the rest of the wedding and keep an eye out for various fauna that might be on the loose.
