Lose yourself in the fantasy of a Renaissance Faire wedding

This is a Renaissance Faire wedding for the books, you guys. Cera and Gerrick said their vows last October in a medieval-style castle in New Hampshire. Of course, Gerrick wore a sword, and Cera had a beautiful corset made by her sister. But my jaw dropped when I saw that all their guests dressed to the nines for a Renaissance Faire wedding. We've got a jester and a knight and… is it weird that my favorites are the older ladies dressed in elaborate gowns and hats? Hell, that's what I want to wear when I'm 60.

Edgy vs. preppy: this first look is a surprise for bride AND groom

Jason told Brettnee he didn't want her to see his suit until their wedding day last September. Brettnee was planning her own rocking outfit with a leather jacket and a Zac Posen mermaid gown, so fair enough! While their personal aesthetic is a bit different ("Jason's more preppy where I'm more edgy," Brettnee said), the style trust between these two is real. "I knew it was going to be different and sharp."

This sweet electric blue wedding will make your teeth ache

Just look at that HUUUGGEE grin on Chris, will you? I love it when grooms show how over-the-moon they are on their wedding days. He and Priscilla said "I do" in California last August. All right, so Chris' grin is totally one of the reasons I was drawn to their photos. The other is this fantastic electric blue wedding they've got going on! It's everywhere, from Priscilla's shoes to their candy buffet (want that blue rock candy) to the bouquet wrapping.

Bringing the glam with tattoos, plugs, and purple hair at a backyard wedding

If there's one thing that makes our eyes light up at Offbeat Bride, it's deliciously colored hair. Jessica had this amazing dark purple flip going on for her October wedding to Robbie, and I could eat that color with a spoon. Robbie stepped up to the plate too with an impeccably trimmed beard (always a heart stopper) and gold ear tunnels. Mmm, but I think Jessica might have pulled ahead a bit in the style game with her 1920s-style lace wedding hat. Hats should be loads more common than they are — they look so damn cool.

A high-low dress at a rainy wedding keeps things sexy, not soggy

Sasha and Albert have known each other since high school. They live in New York City, their families live in New Jersey, and everyone traveled to Vermont for the couple's wedding last August. North Hero was a favorite vacation spot for Sasha and Albert, and it certainly doesn't look to me like they minded braving a chilly, rainy day at the lake! And how absolutely spot on is Sasha's dress for a tall bride on a drizzly day? Showing off the legs + not worrying about a soggy hem = winning!
