This week we're celebrating woodsy, outdoor weddings before it gets too cold. Today we've got a UK wedding focused on keeping things eco-friendly, educational for non-pagans, and full of music. With a handmade corset dress, a ceremony in the round, and a forest setting, this pair totally knows how to do fun, frolic, and rock 'n' roll out in the wilderness.

Let's talk about boobs! I'm a 32DD, which means I am a petite chick with a mighty big rack. Wedding dress shopping was all about the boobs for me. I had to find a dress that either supported the big gals comfortably and flatteringly on its own, OR I had to find a dress that could work with some major undergarment action. Yup, I've learned a lot of tricks shopping for the rare and elusive "big rack, small back" support systems in my time. Let's talk about our options…
Alexis and Chelsea got married just a few months ago in a small ceremony in Illinois. And, no big, they were only decked out from head to toe in absolutely fabulous steampunk finery. Alexis is making it look like she wears a corset, bustle, and high-heeled boots every day, and I only wish I looked as good as Chelsea does in a checkered vest and pinstripe pants. The ceremony took place at a Spanish-style mansion, amid bouquets of Edgar Allan Poe book pages.
A luscious red dress, a guy-linered groom, an amazing theater venue, and a plan to make everyone mix and mingle that included ornate masks — this spooky Halloween wedding in Salem, Oregon makes our knees quake in fear… I mean lust! Add in some movie and video game-themed music and some costume-clad guests and you're in for a spooky time with a super gorgeous backdrop.
Fire dancers, circus performers, Alice in Wonderland costumes, and a big fireworks show — this is a theme combination that rocks hard. Feast your eyes on the chair jugglers, dancers, and of course, guests dressed as cards, the Queen of Hearts, and the Mad Hatter. And of course, the blue corset gown and dapper top hat on the bride and groom give us the feels, too!
