Red and blue and DIY all over — these two ladies know how to throw a stylish and entertaining wedding! They included all of their talented community — performers and bakers alike — and their tribute to what their specific type of marriage means to them is tear-inducing and spot-on. And you MUST see one of the bride's mom's awesome, newly acquired aerialist skills! She's one bad-ass mother.

With pumpkin and spider details, a deliciously gothic black dress, and a hunky, serenading groom, this wedding is super Halloween hotness. Add in the heavy metal cover band, ceremony inside jokes, and skelly cake toppers, and you'll be in love with this love in no time.
We love this bride's black, lacy dress, the couple's totally stress-avoiding attitude, cake-cutting "grr" faces, and super awesome wedding party photo picnic idea. And for any of you dealing with hassles about losing weight for the wedding, this bride's rational and kick-ass method for dealing with it is a MUST-READ.
These two put a lot of thought into every aspect of the day — they designed their own outfits (including modifying purchased items when they couldn't find what they were looking for) and combined their design and computing skills to create the bespoke invitations, stationery, and a website to match the theme. Adam's mum and best man designed the centerpieces, and the pair had some of Adelina's family's old jewelry redesigned into unique wedding bands with a never-ending vine engraved on them. I LOVE!
We love us some rockabilly chic, and this wedding has got the goods. Classic cars, victory rolls, a tattoo-inspired cake, and a handmade black retro dress. Add in the wise-cracking brother who walked the bride down the aisle and some sweet family memorial photos, and you've got the recipe for a family-focused good time.
This one is going to be right on the money for you couples planning Halloween weddings right now. We've got two ladies celebrating their favorite holiday, a black ribbon veil, amazing black pumpkin bouquet, and of course, Central Park in New York City! Plus, they had The Reverend D (rad Offbeat Bride vendor) officiate dressed as ELVIRA! And there may have been a wedding crashing zombie in attendance as well.
This week we're letting our hair down and getting back to nature in the wild, wild outdoors! Today's wedding explodes with mossy, fairy goodness, "mushroom" desserts, a killer black corset dream dress, and break-dancing family fun on a farm. Plus, you'll learn how to better prepare for those tough vow questions.
Oh, to be a sandwich with these people. They are totally gorgeous and had an equally gorgeous elopement under a huge-mongous oak tree in New Orleans. Krysten chose the destination and planned the trip since she loves NOLA, and Chris wrote the ceremony himself. They wanted, in their own words, "simplicity and fiscal solvency," so eloping just made perfect sense. To get the ceremony under that majestic tree, a little smooth talking was in order with a gruff groundskeeper!
A black ballgown, an amazing staircase, and a strategically placed leaf for a statue's modesty? This wedding in a nightclub has it all, and happened on a Monday afternoon, letting the couple celebrate their anniversary and enjoy a hot venue for a cool price.
Kate and Danyael had a gorgeous evening ceremony at the outdoor mausoleum at the Inglewood Park Cemetery, with guests seated in a spiral(!!). The rituals were a combination of Pagan and Shamanic traditions, owing to Kate's observance of Wicca and Danyael's Native American ancestry.
