This is Offbeat Bride's archive of crafty wedding posts.
One way to bond over the wedding is to get everyone and their mother involved in the tiny details. That's exactly what this couple did, and it made planning a little more sane than it could have been. With paper and knitted flowers, an all-vegan-plus-pork menu, and lots of woodsy and crafty details, you know a lot of heart (and probably sweat) went into this wedding. Oh, and don't forget to pour one out for the missing home-brewed beer that could have been.
This bride goes gaga for DIY projects, and the biggest problem was reining them in! One of the best projects was the bride's rap video gift to the groom. You have to see it to believe it. Other killer details included the dance into the ceremony, the abundant coffee filter flowers, and the cutie-pie vows worth stealing. But be warned: good luck getting through their favorite moment. Tissues will be required.
We've seen this bride's homemade cake, but we hadn't seen her epic, punk rock-loving wedding. The wait is over, so you'll want to check out the retro fashion, insane makeshift mosh pit, and BUMPER CARS at the reception! Oh, and viewing the bride's surprise wedding tattoo required a sexy-as-hell upskirt shot that we couldn't help including.
A rockin' red dress, a stack of chocolatey brownies, and a museum celebrating all things science? Check, check, double check! The Humanist ceremony upstairs in a library full of scientific texts, the reception downstairs among funky science installations, and a giant statue of a favorite scientist for photos ops round out this wedding's fabulous setting. Read on for more… for SCIENCE!
A midweek morning ceremony with a whole week of campout festivities surrounding it? Sounds fab. This couple was on a mission to keep things as eco-friendly as possible and to undertake any and all DIY projects. Was it a success? You'll just have to see for yourself. Here's a hint: hell yes.
After seven years together, these two were used to working together. Photos in the centerpieces, slides in the crafty boutonnieres, a ribbon wand sendoff, and a great twist on a ring warming are just a few of the gorgeous details. Click on to see how they celebrated the love they'd built over the years with a big dose of teamwork and some good advice.
The groom's nickname is Sharky, so you might know what theme this wedding had. You guessed it: tons of hidden sharks! Plus, the theme was a secret from everyone except a select few. They also used a little photo magic to add some personality to their centerpieces. But my favorite part is the photos of the couple — talk about personality. Definitely check the slideshow on this one.
This week we're celebrating intimate weddings with destination elopements, cozy city hall vows, and private romantic ceremonies. Today we have a backyard wedding of two neighbors-turned-lovers. There were Shrinky Dinks, Cajun and Filipino food, a garaged covered in burlap, and tons of crafty details.
