An enchanted forest theme, costumes, homemade mead, and a handfasting… we're in the mood for some fantastical forest-y love! Add in a giant inflatable D20, some DIY, and a few choice vow alterations, and you've got all kinds of fun twists. Plus, you'll love who walked the bride down the aisle!
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of costumes posts.
Turkey legs, jousts, games, wench-y corsets, and a golden rose ceremony: sounds like a Renaissance festival wedding for the ages. And then add in the blessing from the king and queen, the adorable mini-chapel, and the tree-climbing uncle-with-a-camera, and you've got a wedding that'll melt any garb-wearing Renny around.
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish in one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got an all-era time travel costume wedding! Think amazing decor (including light-up centerpieces!), a chihuahua in a dress, and a mysterious Time Lord officiant coming out of the smoke! This theatrical pair KNOWS how to throw a multi-talented party.
There is so much SWEET, sweet goodness in this wedding! Looking for a dancing astronaut? Here you go! Want to see a bride dressed as Little Red Riding Hood while being escorted by a wolf? Right here. There are also skull cake toppers, red polka-dot flats, and centerpieces featuring posts from various horror movies (including The Shining). Basically: it's a creeptastic Halloween wedding dreamscape.
If the costumes, kick-ass handmade dress, and three-legged dog dressed as the Black Knight (sans leg, natch) don't get you, the paper doll-inspired invitation will. And if even that doesn't get you, the officiant holding "Weddings for Dummies" will. And if THAT doesn't get you, just wait until you see the band dressed as brides and the slow-dancing Jay and Silent Bob. It's a smorgasbord of amazingness over here.
This bride's DIY skills are MAD! She made so many of the outfits including her own black and white striped, purple reception gown (which fit amazingly well into their masquerade-themed reception!). Don't miss the paper flower decor, the forest-y venue, the sexiest boots, and the tiniest aisle-walker ever!
You guys, this wedding has got what you need: handmade Victorian garb, lolita bridesmaid dresses, a magician who performs a Punch and Judy show, and tons of costumes, including one Dobby the house elf! These theatrical folks know how to party, fantastic fairytale-style! Plus, this bride has some sage advice about taking on a lot of DIY projects.
Never have I seen so much colorful Muppet hilarity in one wedding. (And we've seen some Muppets!). A Muppet cake (with awesome sheet cake alternative), Muppet felt bouquets, doppelganger hand puppets, and an ANIMAL BAND(!!) make Cristina and Trevor's wedding a total nostalgia-fest. There were even felt Muppet eyes and props for the photo booth. Feast your eyes and get smacked in the face with color!
Ring bearer? Sure. Ring BEAR? Hell yes! Every time we get to see a ring bear, we get excited. We decided to pull together all of our favorite ring bears to pay respect to that most LOL-worthy of guests and bear(er) of rings, who sweats his or her way through the ceremony for our viewing pleasure.
