Home-brewed beer (including beer ceremony), an Elvis officiant, a hilarious camp wedding guide, and a cocktail hour with lawn games and merit badges — you've just described my perfect camp-out party. Don't even get us started on the tearful first look, the Sharpie pre-tattoo rings, the dads' pre-ceremony chest bump, and the time-traveling video invitation. Oh, and there's one more video that we're keeping a secret. Trust me, you have to see it.

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.
Halloween 2013 means it's a great year for superstition-themed parties! A save-the-date is a great way to establish the mood of your party, and since we're going with superstitions, what is more superstitious than a broken mirror? Here's how to make them yourself…
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!
Animals, adventure, and retro travel… now that's a wild wedding setup. With lots of DIY from the crafty bride and some dance floor shenanigans, this zoo wedding was bound to bring out everyone's animal side. Get ready for animal prints, peacock feathers, animal crackers, and tropical-themed centerpieces.
We love us some rockabilly chic, and this wedding has got the goods. Classic cars, victory rolls, a tattoo-inspired cake, and a handmade black retro dress. Add in the wise-cracking brother who walked the bride down the aisle and some sweet family memorial photos, and you've got the recipe for a family-focused good time.
Let's see here: dinosaurs (and a dino adult piñata!), a small town outdoor setting with a big cocktail gathering before the ceremony, and 34 DOZEN tamales… where do I sign up for this wedding? Oh, and don't forget the groom's and the bride's mother's live band performances, the Monty Python call-out in the ceremony, and the unintentional ass-grab by the groom during the first dance!

This couple knows the rules for sticking to your budget and make every choice count. With an adorable photo booth, an accordion serenade, and tons of DIY succulent centerpieces, you'll definitely find something to love. Oh, and you'll definitely want to see the groom's face at the first look — it's epic.
I love when crafty folks work their magic on the wedding — handmade jewelry and rings, lino-block printed invitations, handmade bridesmaid dresses… we boggle at the talent! And in this case, it allowed them to have more guests with a smaller budget. Plus, you don't want to miss how flippin' gorgeous these two are with their ink and vintage-styled fashion! I suspect many staff cat-fights over who gets to be in the sandwich with these two.
We already snuck a peek at this couple's fabulous octopus cake, and now we're getting the full scoop! We're talking steampunk details, custom corset loveliness, and a ROBOT RING BEARER made by a certain Mythbuster pal of theirs. Just watch your eyebrows around the flamethrower…
