It's getting to be that time of year again: Halloween wedding season! We can always count on seeing loads of weddings where guests are encouraged to come in costume. Because, seriously, costumes always amp up the fun factor. Here are 18 weddings that totally get it right when it comes to rocking the costumes.
Guh. Buh. AUGH. Taylor and Carmine's Oregon wedding is so beautiful and welcoming and relaxed, and I just want to launch myself through the photos and be there.
Let's start with the fact that Taylor wore her mother's dress, but this is definitely the coolest alteration of a vintage gown I've seen today. And I don't even know how to describe the vest, head-scarf, bejeweled bowler action that Carmine's got going on, but that is some swoon-worthy groom gear. And when you get to the photo of him carrying their 1-year-old daughter as he walks into the ceremony, well. Well. Well, it's pretty damn cute!
You guys, this wedding will fulfill many desires: steampunk gear, Adventure Time decor, World of Warcraft bunting, and board games galore. It's everything our geeky hearts love. Add in the gorgeous paper flower bouquets, the live-action re-telling of A Lovely Love Story, and the airships and rockets, and you're in for a wild, pop-cultured filled ride with these cuties.
Or: "Mary goes through it so you don't have to!" Or: "Married life is way less thrilling than I was anticipating so I'm going to write a post as if I'm giving someone else advice about the situation I happen to find myself in."
If you're into rainbow weddings, you've gotta check out Simon and Petra's color-infused, rainbow-central, DIY love fest. They got married in the registry office of Andover, UK, before they partied at a local community center. Check out the monochromatic bouquets (which Petra totally made herself), be in awe of her own red-and-white brooch bouquet, and — oh my WOW — Petra's nails. Those tiny lil hearts took three hours to paint!
You may remember this bride from her post about choosing to marry her boyfriend while legally married to her husband. Now we've got the whole story of how it went down, including the bride's husband catering a vegetarian meal, the handcrafted ceremony and vows, and the true meaning of what makes a "real" wedding.
Last time, I gave you the rundown on the four reasons our sponsor Revolution Weddings should be your wedding DJ and officiant. But that was then, and this is now, and NOW Revolution Weddings is more than a DJ/officiant. Revolution Weddings is now an awesome, all-female, wedding company that offers almost ALL the wedding vendors you need in one place.
I'm wondering if you guys have advice on giving gifts to those helping us coordinate the wedding — the family member doing hair/makeup, our friend who is officiating, the friend donating their photography services, etc.? I need advice like how much to spend per person and gift suggestions. Any information would be helpful.
This is the story of a media-obsessed bride becoming wedding media herself. But in this case, the bride totally made peace with her obsession and ended up with a wedding to rival all the ones she idolized. Her red gown, colorful fall decor, and epic venue with a mountain backdrop all make us wish we were right there with them. Just watch out for Zorro and Pancho Villa… there's bound to be a fight there.
I love meeting with newly-engaged couples — joyful, anxious, and bubbling over with excitement about making their wedding plans. I sit across from this couple in love, enjoying my iced coffee, and I ask them about every special aspect and personal touch they're incorporating in their wedding. As they answer, I'm always struck by how everything is so special to them because of who they are and what it represents to them… Everything but the time of day.
We've seen dogs walking people down the aisle, but you probably haven't witnessed just too many horses in that role yet. Alcatraz accompanied Ashley as she and Justin were married at Aubrey Hill Equestrian Center in Florida last fall. Practical lady, Ashley wore sparkly Converse as she walked by her horse's side.
