This sweet electric blue wedding will make your teeth ache

Just look at that HUUUGGEE grin on Chris, will you? I love it when grooms show how over-the-moon they are on their wedding days. He and Priscilla said "I do" in California last August. All right, so Chris' grin is totally one of the reasons I was drawn to their photos. The other is this fantastic electric blue wedding they've got going on! It's everywhere, from Priscilla's shoes to their candy buffet (want that blue rock candy) to the bouquet wrapping.


Bringing the glam with tattoos, plugs, and purple hair at a backyard wedding

If there's one thing that makes our eyes light up at Offbeat Bride, it's deliciously colored hair. Jessica had this amazing dark purple flip going on for her October wedding to Robbie, and I could eat that color with a spoon. Robbie stepped up to the plate too with an impeccably trimmed beard (always a heart stopper) and gold ear tunnels. Mmm, but I think Jessica might have pulled ahead a bit in the style game with her 1920s-style lace wedding hat. Hats should be loads more common than they are — they look so damn cool.
