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 is Offbeat Bride's archive of Real Weddings: Southern US posts.
There are some who say the South will rise again — and it's true, if you're talking about nontraditional weddings! From Hotlanta to Texas, we love our Southern 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 a backyard wedding with family vows, Mad-Libs, polka dots, trivia, and tons of pizza. How did these two know exactly what we wanted to see today? Perk up your midweek with this super sweet, family-centric wedding on a Tuesday.
Peacock feathers, vintage glass, a super gorgeous mountain venue, and two lovely ladies getting hitched — this is one to see, folks. They may have had some issues carting guests around the mountain, but it was all worth it just to listen to the brides' original song composed for the wedding!
This music-loving pair reunited at a concert and got engaged at a concert! Music is in their bones. But don't forget their love of vintage style and of course… zombies! It's a wild mix of styles that all seem to make total sense once you see it. Their solution to a grounds mishap on the venue property is pretty genius. But don't miss the adorable hot air balloon centerpieces and Shaun of the Dead cake, too. It's uh… got a little red on it.
Hiking a mile and a half with your nearest and dearest probably isn't for everyone, but this outdoorsy pair and their awesome family and friends took on the challenge. And boy, was it worth it! We're talking cliff views, trees everywhere, and a picnic and lawn games reception. Plus, there's a gorgeous video that'll take your breath away. Oh, and don't miss the special message written in sandwiches!
Did someone say "gorgeous outdoor lawn games and square dancing wedding?" Yeah, I just knew you were thinking about it. Well get on board with this one: croquet, cigars, bow ties, and the couple handing out ice cream. Plus, you'll love the ceremony structure and big ol' singalong at the end. To what song, you ask? RING OF FIRE!
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 we're looking at some killer photo booth props, wedding-themed comic books, and the most epic wedding trailer ever.
Black and white stripes, a sexy pin-up dress, long black gloves, and a groom in red — this wedding is very enticing. Add in all of the video game references (including in the vows!), and you've got the best combination of gamer geeks and total hotties. Don't miss the Mario centerpieces and the bride's swanky top hat and Batman ring!
Kilts, ring security, games for the kiddos, and a lot of high-fiving — this wedding is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Plus, their hand-written ceremony is tissue-worthy. And just wait until you see the original painting that was created as the ceremony happened!
With a tasty strawberry shortcake beer ceremony, a wine unity box, and a grand mountain backdrop, the ceremony is enough to have us drooling. But add in the locally-themed after party at a bar with bocce courts and delish pies, and we're full-on sold. You'll really love how the bride chose her purple polka-dotted dress. Hint: it may have been on her phone!
This wedding took a sharp turn when an unexpected and tragic loss occurred. But through it all, this pair planned one of the loveliest weddings we've seen, with sunset views, organic and beautiful masks, and an evening candle ceremony. It may have been a bittersweet day, but they made it as sweet as could be.
