Flower sword fights, pygmy goats, millions of book page flowers, and geeky Star Wars details all over this joint — it's a geeky wedding, Texas-style! This handfasting meets techie wedding is an amazing mix of themes. Oh, and wait until you check out the bride's DIYed Star Wars comic shoes!
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of crafty wedding posts.
We heart this casual New Zealand wedding with lawn games, lots o' kids, and even more paper flowers. Plus, you'll love the groom's skull ring, the bride's retro dress, and their sweet favorite moment. And just wait until you see how they almost missed their officiant at the ceremony!
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.
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.
These two are artsy and it shows. This pair crafted themselves into a tizzy, but the result were some gorgeous details. Even the portable toilets were pretty! But add in a bouquet toss/wire snafu, a groomsgirl who matches the groomsmen, and the bride's awesome green dress, and there's way more to see than just the decor.
A little crafty, a little nerdy, and a whole lot of lovingly-crafted wedding goodness. We've featured bits and bobs from this wedding, and now we've finally gotten the full story including the ribbon wands, paper cranes, cotton candy(!), and lucky horseshoes.
