This bride owns one of our most favorite dress design companies, KMKDesigns, so you won't be too surprised to see that her own dress is nothing less than magnificent. But you'll also be swept away by the other handmade fashions, nom-worthy cupcakes, the jail tour, and the totally sweet "high school prom" first dance.

Suzi and Paul share our fondness for the wriggly tentacled types that we're celebrating this week in our mash-up theme of barns and tentacles (BARN-ACLE WEEK!).

You know what was waiting for us this week in our Flickr pool? A lot of awesome wedding nerdiness, that's what! I'm talking not only this awesome Star Wars-themed cupcake display, but Lord of the Rings bridal accessories, LEGO boutonnieres, and the Doctor.
If you're looking for a way to combine cake and favors, cupcakes in jars are a great option. It makes the cake that much more portable, and those who are full on the meal (including you) can still get their sugar fix later. Plus: CUTE!

Tribesmaid Luckycharm had an awesomely geeky wedding with references to Tetris, Dungeons & Dragons, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, and superheroes, so she's totally a girl of my own heart. But one part that totally stands out is their Atlas and P-body LEGO cake toppers on a Portal 2 companion cube cake.
There are hidden freebies all over the web: downloadable templates, patterns, fonts, fingerprint trees, and more. I stumble across them all the time while browsing blogs. But now I'm attempting to compile a MEGA-SUPER-MONDO list of all kinds of free printables and downloadable templates for wedding DIY projects.
