It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. Today we're looking at two retro and nerdy birds who combined these two loves into a kick-ass party. Think DIY flowers, a classic car, and a life-size Spider-Man and Mary Jane cut-out! Oh, and just wait until you see the daddy/daughter first look.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of classic car posts.
This philanthropic pair made sure that everyone from their esteemed colleagues to their artistic and genealogically-inclined friends had something awesome to do besides dancing at their reception. Add that to their spectacular venue and vintage Caddy ambulance getaway car, and you'll be in love. Oh, and get your hankies for the father/daughter dance photo!
Capetown's gorgeous scenery is the perfect backdrop for this sweet and intimate chapel wedding. You need to see this bride's necklace/shoulder jewelry AND the groom's adorable I'm-so-happy-to-marry-this-woman cheer or else our work isn't done. Our only regret is not being invited to their second ceremony in Zimbabwe!
The bride lives in black, so her dress totally had to incorporate the color. Add in her blue hair (her "something blue"), gorgeous black and white veil, their classic ride, and a tear-y groom, and you've got this gorgeous Aussie wedding with DIY details. Just wait until you see the groom at the beginning of the ceremony. Oh, and wait until you see how a five-year engagement helped them overcome a challenge.
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.
Put on your goggles and your neo-Victorian gear, because this is STEAMPUNK WEEK! Today we've got a Victorian-styled red rose wedding paired with a book theme and a red dress with a peacock train. We're talking a book cake, book pages bunting, a fabulous DIYed top hat, and all the vivid red you can handle.
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 pair of rockabillies wanted to go all-out with retro style: record place settings, cake centerpieces with tattoo designs, pin-up and greaser stations (for timely coifs!), and a killer band. You have to see what the groom did at the reception to surprise the bride. Let's just say it involves Elvis. Oh, and I think the groom's "cake" will appeal to some of you.
We spied this most excellently dressed wedding party recently and were totally hoping to see the full wedding story. Thankfully, Kim and Cole obliged. Get ready for a seriously chic venue with their added DIY fabulousness (like a sweet DIY photo booth and wine cork chandelier!), and two of the most dapper-as-hell brides we've ever seen.
