Monday Montage: kissing coats, crazy colors and a first dance

Seriously, I blurted way too many obscenities while browsing the Offbeat Bride Flickr pool this week. I couldn't help myself — you guys are just so freakin' cute and so creative. I mean, look for yourselves. This Monday we have one couple who played Dance Dance Revolution for their first dance, some beauties in black, kissing coats and lovely colors. As always, you can click each picture to see more.

… And then they did this. I don't know about you, but kissing in the rain is one of my all-time fantasies. (It doesn't rain a lot in California).

Oh hell yes. A purple and black wedding? Yes, please.

Kissing coats. The bride and groom wore matching coats!

Melissa's coral pink dress + red lips + colorful ink = Coco in love. Melissa, you shut it down.

Bright colours everywhere!
THE COLORS! Kristen and Paul had quite the colorful shindig in Phuket, Thailand.

Hey, photographers! I love you and do my best to attribute all Monday Montage photos, but sometimes brides don't include your info when they submit photos. If I've featured your work but it isn't properly credited, email me!

  1. Are there any other pics of the 1st bride's dress (the DDR bride)? The skirt looks like it has some interesting embroidery on it but it's kind of hard to tell. Oop, nevermind! Found it. Pretty. And that Thai wedding…gorge!

  2. oh my gosh, that black beaded lace dress? with the silver headpiece? WANT. stunning!

    1 agrees
  3. I love the Dance Dance Revolution idea for a first dance – what a great way to avoid the potential awkwardness and burn those nerves away!

    • Sorry, I just saw this comment now! My husband pointed it out to me. The headpiece came from an etsy seller called "Rose of the Mire"….she was amazing and I bought several pieces including the headpiece.

  4. *squeak* thats us! its the onlything that i could think of in place of a first dance. thank you!!!

  5. @ kissing in the rain: if you live somewhere wehere it rains a lot, it may not be as romantic as it seems. Kissing in the snow though, that does it for me!
