This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got superhero groomsmen, chemical compound necklaces, a pocket-sized Incredible Hulk, and a super cute tea-length dress.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of Real Weddings: Northeast US posts.
From New England to New York, couples in the Northeast have their own distinct brand of offbeat. A little urban, and little upstate, and a bit of an edge — we love you East Coast Offbeat Brides!
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got the perfect adult summer camp: lawn games, a beer truck, tents, and a s'mores bar. Oh, and two of the cutest skateboarding and crafting couples this side of Camp North Star.
This pair were already super psyched to get married, but having the ceremony at a cystic fibrosis walk (which is close to the bride's heart), made it all the more personal and amazing. Don't miss the groom's day-glow green suit, the bride's grandmother's dress that she remade to her own design, and the super funny ribbon "cutting" ceremony. Get ready to feel like happy gooey butter after seeing this wedding.
This pair may have originally wanted a small wedding, but their family-focused book-loving wedding ended up being just right. We are loving the pink dress, gorgeous ombre chuppah (that took nine months to make!), and super special mom/daughter walk down the aisle. Bit it might have been the rendition of a Muppet song from the bride and her sister that really did us in.
This venue will blow your theater-loving socks off. The little geeky touches will steal your LEGO-loving hearts. The wedding party music will steal your pants and run away. Wait, this is starting to make less sense. Either way, there is something for everyone in this fancy-shmancy meets geeky and goofy wedding in a gorgeous theater. Go peek!
Pink glasses, purple groom's hair, and a poly-inclusive (and everything else-inclusive!) — this Jewish-meets-Boston-meets-New York wedding is just a dream. The couple dealt with some challenges: disabilities, long-distance planning, and how to incorporate all their interests — but damn did they do it well! Smoosh your face against the screen and give these cuties a virtual hug.
Hitchhiker's Guide, Game of Thrones, and zombie references all wrapped up in a joke-filled (and super meaningful!) ceremony and dance party — that's our kind of fun. Plus, you just might love their wedding party alternative at the ceremony. Oh, and don't miss the really good advice on how to mingle with the guests at the reception!
A killer movie theater venue, some 1920s fashion, and a recessional with a marching band — get ready for this Old Hollywood good time. And just wait until you read the bride's description of the ceremony entrance. Talk about a way to get us all excited about aisle-walking! But best of all… there is a giant, 40-person karaoke battle to none other than Meatloaf.
A gorgeous green bouquet, succulent favors, a Jazzy venue, and a cameo from our own developer, Kellbot — this New York City wedding is the balm to our rough days. Plus, their friends' video salute is one of the funniest we've seen. And just wait until you see how their portrait session was interrupted! Hint: it was a really sunny day!
Rare is the time we get a sports-themed submission written by a Tribesdude! It was extra special since it merited a few legit happy tears during the "last dance" section. Come enjoy the boat venue, sweet H.P. Lovecraft-infused ceremony, whiskey ceremony, and impromptu karaoke session. Oh, and wait until you see what the bouquets were made of!
Get ready for a gorgeous castle, a handmade winter cape (made by mom!), a lovely moment between the bride and her father, and lots of handmade goodies and details. Add in the book and rock elements and you're in for a super personalized good time. Oh, and just wait until you hear about their surprise hit: the HAIR BAR! I mustache you to look for it…
