I recently posted on Facebook that I want anything emblazoned with "bride" to be changed to "fat bride." My identity as a fat woman is no secret, and I'm not ashamed of it. I bare my body with pride. However, not everyone feels the same way.
Where do we even begin with this UK wedding? The rainbow origami flowers? The Lumpy Space Princess card box and Adventure Time cake? The cult film-themed tables? The POLE DANCING at the reception?! Either way, if you don't find something swoon-worthy in here, I'll eat my hat. Explore this film-meets-dancing-meets-ice-cream wedding.
Pop the Champagne is a team of bad-ass chicks who make SoCal weddings run like well-oiled matrimonial machines with their day-of coordination skills.

Long, short, bleached, black, rainbow… well, you'll have to go to our mohawks archive to see them allllll, but we've got 15 of 'em right here if you just want to take a peek!
I made these boutonnieres for our Pirate Crew, AKA all our friends and family who are stepping up to help staff our wedding. They will help identify the helpers to any guests or vendors who may need assistance with something. They were super-fast, and super-fun.
A Nicaraguan groom, a Cuban-Bolivian bride from the U.S., and a glorious beach ceremony in Nicaragua — this is some multicultural fabulousness. But the best part is how much we learned from the bride and her search for unique local vendors for her destination wedding. Plus, get your hankies ready for the bride's story of her mother and the treasure boxes.
When you don't belong to the "my wedding is a party" club, you might feel like you're missing out on some of the cool wedding stuff — centerpieces, decorations, venues, et cetera. In my experience, elopement weddings are at once amazing, full of awe and love, affordable, and totally relaxing yet incredibly thrilling all at once.
