Paper flowers, local friendors, and a love for their hometown make this wedding hit home. Plus, this bride took two vintage dresses and made her own dove grey dream dress with 70 years of history. And we will all learn at least one thing from this wedding: keep the dance floor splits to a minimum or face the crotch consequences!

After seeing this wedding, there is no way we all won't be in the mood for Mexican food and a full-on fiesta — which is exactly what this wedding entails. Papel picado, an awesome Mexican restaurant, and tons of DIYed decor worthy of the event make this colorful shindig a stunner. Add in the gorgeous vintage-style chapel and sweet mother/daughter impromptu dance, and you'll be in love with this love.
What do sledgehammers, croquet, and Harry Potter have in common? This wedding! A gorgeous outdoor wedding with Jewish traditions is capped off by an epic battle of wand versus sledgehammer. So pick a handmade wand, get sorted into a house, and join us in checking out this Midwest wedding with tons of charm (and magical charms!).
We previewed this couple's AMAZING neon bicycle part centerpieces before, but little did we know that we'd also get to see an acrobatic silks performance, an amazingly visual contrast with the venue (that we love!), and even more photos of the centerpiece works of art! Come look and see the neon splendor!
The bouquets were made from pages of Edgar Allan Poe, Stephen King, and Red Riding Hood. The cake topper was a miniature zombie family. The place cards were actual TOE TAGS! And then… in classic horror movie style, all the lights went out during the reception! It wasn't intentional, but that is one way to spook out your guests at a Halloween wedding. Just wait until you see what movie prop they used as a guest book!
Are you thinking, "What is this incredibly awesome thing?" You are looking at a handmade wedding centerpiece from Kelley and Mitch's wedding that was uploaded to our Flickr pool. In fact, all of Kelley and Mitch's wedding centerpieces where hand-made by them… out of bicycle parts.
These two super gamers embraced Super Mario for a pretty damned super, 8-bit-inspired wedding! We're talking a Mario photo booth complete with props, fire flower bouquets, homemade cupcakes, and even the bride's kick-ass 1-Up nails! Plus, you'll love their card box. Let's just say it involves a piranha plant and some special effect noises.
Danger, Will Robinson! This wedding has too much retro sci-fi style to be contained! We're talking a science museum venue, guests in sci-fi gear (with matching DIY tin foil hats!), constellation cupcakes, and spooky-awesome fog! Oh, and let's not forget the famous Randy to the Rescue dress. Resistance is futile.
Leah and Heather were married on June 7th at Triumph Brewing Company in New Hope, PA, where the pair had one of their first dates and countless date nights after. Leah designed the place cards, table numbers, her bouquet, Heather's boutonniere, and the CD favors. But the best silver lining moment came when the intense storm going on caused a blackout at the reception!
Succulent favors, antiqued gift table, and some last-minute farm tables… it's a rustc and DIYed wedding! Oh, and don't forget the homage to the groom's Mexican heritage. We're talking Loteria place cards, Mexican blankets, and a taco and margarita bar. We also nominate their adopted shiba mix for the "best dressed wedding dog" award!
