Themed wedding favors give you a great opportunity to share a little of your interests with your guests. Stacia and Kevin's sci-fi-themed wedding featured surprise grab bags filled with all kinds of space-y goodies.
This three-day celebration is all about color, amazing hand-carved landscapes, and fab entertainment. We're talking stilt-walkers, costumes, lasers, and a pre-wedding disco party where everyone wore bridesmaids dresses! And just wait until you see how these two crafted their rings. Hint: it involves a neuroscientist!
When it comes to "elements to include in a wedding," one of the first things that many people think of are readings. And there's a good reason why — so many of us have such a strong connection with words. Finding the right quotes, poems, or passages, that capture a feeling or a moment, can help us when we aren't feeling especially creative, or can't find our own words to share how we feel. But where can you find these perfect words to include in your ceremony? And how can you include them?
For Joanna and Chad, the carnival is where it's at. Definitely where their wedding was at. She's a hula hooper, he's a juggler, so this Florida couple tied the knot in an outdoor, circus-themed ceremony at Cafe de Vinci last October. Scroll down to see Joanna's awesome black dress with a great red crinoline, Chad's rockin' beard and hot red pants, a Ferris wheel cupcake stand, and an officiant dressed from head to toe in full-blown ringleader regalia.
This pair loves their Elder Scrolls and Game of Thrones and managed to seamlessly integrate their geeky interests into their decor. They also totally found a way to hack their social anxiety by having escape routes and special signals when things got too overwhelming. Plus, you'll love the bride's black Dr. Marten's hidden under her floofy white dress!
Our newest sponsors, Joni and Jennelle, are Portland-based couple who started their own custom cocktailing business. Mint & Mirth offers licensed and insured cocktail bartending in Portland and in Los Angeles, and they LOVE Offbeat Brides! They love Offbeat Brides so much that they wanna party with you.
The first dance is something I'm particularly excited about, but here is the issue — the groom only knows how to waltz in 3/4 time. So here's the deal… I'd like to know your favorite modern songs in 3/4 time, ie, Waltzin' Songs. My groom and I would like something sweet and peppy, and not too "classic." Got any ideas?
A second marriage = a second chance to craft a wedding that's totally you, right? Well this pair combined an outdoorsy winter theme with Bavarian food and style for a magical, wintry, totally cozy wedding. Do not miss the horse-drawn carriage, the red hearts theme (including on the bride's ring finger!), and the nom-worthy food list!
