These two are killing it with cute. You have to see their green and blue matching vest outfits and the bride's pants outfit with heels and a feather hair clip. Though this wedding had some serious grief surrounding it, they were still able to have a fantastic time with immediate family, lots of rough-housing in the photos, and some carrot cake vows and Chapstick ceremony sweetness. Yep… Chapstick.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of Real Weddings: Midwest US posts.
There are some people who think offbeat weddings don't happen in the fly-over states. These people are delusional. Behold a few of our favorite weddings from the midwest…
It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. Today's wedding in a fab venue brings us comic book paper flowers, '40s-style superhero illustrations, and movie references all over the place.
A wee bit of geek chic, two fabulous venues, and a whole lot of style — this wedding is all kinds of sweet and memorable. Their secular and meaningful ceremony also did a kick-ass job of combining a handfasting and some super sweet vows. You will want to read them! Let's head in and see the Star Wars LEGOs, the flowing ceremony backdrop, and chic urban loft.
We love us some Harry Potter weddings for all the the fun details: owl save the date card, Marauders' Map-inspired directions card, Daily Prophet program, Chocolate Frog favors, homemade ribbon wands, and of course, a huge, Harry Potter-themed sweets table! Just keep the underage wizards from the booze table!
Fire dancers, circus performers, Alice in Wonderland costumes, and a big fireworks show — this is a theme combination that rocks hard. Feast your eyes on the chair jugglers, dancers, and of course, guests dressed as cards, the Queen of Hearts, and the Mad Hatter. And of course, the blue corset gown and dapper top hat on the bride and groom give us the feels, too!
This bride owns one of our most favorite dress design companies, KMKDesigns, so you won't be too surprised to see that her own dress is nothing less than magnificent. But you'll also be swept away by the other handmade fashions, nom-worthy cupcakes, the jail tour, and the totally sweet "high school prom" first dance.
This pair had a big surprise just two weeks after getting engaged: the groom was being deployed. And so started the long-distance planning (Florida to Ohio) with a deployed groom to boot! But you'd never know it from the looks of this garden wedding with gorgeous views, literary details, and a superhero ring bearer.
These two traditional, feminist, queer, Christian women are an interesting mix. Add in their vegetarian reception, and you can imagine how many challenges they may have faced. But, outside of some catering reservations, you'd never know it! This wedding blends all of these factors into a sweet and lovely day that fits these two like a glove.
When this couple says handmade, they mean handmade. From growing the garden and raising the chickens, these two made it all happen with their own two hands. But wait until you see how a surprise officiant snafu made them rethink their ceremony!
This pair started talking on May 4th (Star Wars Day!), so it only made sense to complete the circle with a wedding on the same day. With Han and Leia cake toppers, a Death Star cake, and of course, the 501st Legion, it was an intergalactic good time. And when you're looking to up the fun game on your photo booth, have some cardboard cut-outs handy!
A Central Park ceremony, rooftop shenanigans, and a family-focused Chicago reception — these two cuties know to party cross-country! Add in the queer-friendly atmosphere, last-minute cheesecake, and sand ceremony mishap, and you've got a recipe for offbeat magic.
