We're falling into the so-excited-it's-almost-fall trap hardcore. But that's okay: trap us in your cool embrace and crunchy leaves, fall! Here's a little horror and zombies pre-Halloween preview to whet your appetite for the season. The dessert bar alone is to die for… think anatomical hearts, zombie mousse graves, and a cake with a giant bloody bite out of it. It's ghoulishly delicious!

A float-y princess gown, some retro stylings, a few train-lover photos, and much much adorableness abounds at this Aussie wedding. We also love the carriage ride, the DIY bits an bobs, and of course, the rainbow sprinkle cake! Add in the blended cultural group dance and impromptu "stair-tripping" game, and you're in for an easy-going and rad time for all (even if they had to smoosh 130 people into a ceremony space meant for 50!).
A Francophile wedding in Bulgaria? Yes indeed. And we're bringing along two dresses (one crocheted, the other Paris-themed!), a macaron cake, and loads of pitkas (Bulgarian bread). It's a total mash-up of Western traditions, Bulgarian traditions, and altogether offbeat Bulgarian awesomeness. Don't miss the bride's valiant attempt at a horo dance, too.
Burning sky sunsets, sand underfoot, crashing waves, and just four people: it's an intimate beach elopement that will make anyone searching for peace in planning salivate. If you're longing for some getaway fantasies, come fantasize here.
You guys, this wedding will fulfill many desires: steampunk gear, Adventure Time decor, World of Warcraft bunting, and board games galore. It's everything our geeky hearts love. Add in the gorgeous paper flower bouquets, the live-action re-telling of A Lovely Love Story, and the airships and rockets, and you're in for a wild, pop-cultured filled ride with these cuties.
A little Alice in Wonderland, a smidge of Doctor Who, and two geeky kids in the Philippines tie the knot, geek-style. With a pink princess gown, little Alices and Ums running around, and some crafty projects, there was no way this wasn't going to be fun. Not even a typhoon warning was stopping it. Oh, and wait until you hear about the family's first dance starring an Xbox!
Retro 1950s style, adorable swing dresses, bright red crinoline matching bright red hair, and a sweet uniting of two parents — it's a pretty damned awesome UK wedding. Don't miss the bride's fruity and retro reception dress. Plus, you'll never guess how they snagged the red classic car!
The tartan dress, the kilts, the Wiccan ceremony… this wedding is such a beautiful mash-up of these two that we can't even deal. The castle venue in The Netherlands is the icing on this super pretty cake. You'll also dig their receiving line alternative. Hint: guests get to NOT stand in line!
Oh, hello fabulous and colorful venue of our dreams. You're hosting a super elegant Scotland-meets-America wedding featuring a bride with a red faux-hawk and a slew of men in kilts? Oh, you do know what we like. Lots of DIY projects, origami bouquets, and amazing mural decor? Now you're just putting us on. Guess we'll have to just see it to believe it.
You want to see something lovely and kilt-filled and pom-pommy? Hell yes you do. This Scottish wedding ticks all the boxes when it comes to overloading on sweetness (in decor, cute dances, and in desserts!). Step into these gorgeous stables and experience a last-minute ceremony turned into a very awesome "homework" assignment that made their day.
This wedding is the most amazing combination of gothic cemetery setting and reverent ceremony of two clergy members dressed in their loveliest vestments in a truly gorgeous church. You'll also love the mash-up of traditional hymns and Rise Against at the ceremony! Come check out the gothic splendor of this wedding.
