When I was weeding through pictures of hair fascinators for my bridesmaids, I was totally in awe of how beautiful some of them were. After goofing off with my now husband in a craft store, I had a light bulb moment that I could make my own feather hair pieces. These were seriously easy to make. And you can totally DIY your own as well. I believe in you!
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of fascinator posts.
Two extremely organized ladies who know how to rock an Excel spreadsheet are bound to know how to prioritize their wedding needs. And that includes a fab open bar, natch. Add in the adorable guest book wedding quilt, the tiny tuxedo-ed pooch, hilarious drag king officiant, and snazzy wedding garb, and you've got this adorable San Fran wedding.
It all starts with gawking at the luscious purple wedding gown (from Wedding Dress Fantasy!). And then we're ogling the scenery at the awesome aquarium. After that we're spying octopodes and tentacles all over the place. And once we see the anniversary dance winners, it's all over. Hearts melted.
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.
I'm in love with these geeks in love and their wedding in Arizona. And with their pink and orange happy-pants color scheme. And with the bride's tea-length dress that shows off her ink (that also matches the peacocks strutting around. AND we love their tiered Rice Krispy treat cake. My relationship with it is getting serious. We may be thinking a marshmallow/me marriage. I think you'll love it, too, so make yourself a heart-shaped PB&J, get to scrolling, and take it all in.
Let me just leave this here: Adventure Time cake, custom manga shoes, retro pin-up style, and a killer aviation museum venue. We can't even get over the CAKE! You have to see it. Plus, all the awesome group shots in the museum and the sweet kissy-face shots. And let's not forget the whispered naughty secrets during the portrait session in the comic book store!
While this is a photo of Tribesmaid Dynamiterose's bridesmaid Krisztianna, I couldn't help but note how her hair may inspire our brides out there. How incredible would this whole hairstyle and fascinator combo be for brides with mohawks? I love the placement of the fascinator and the swept back feel of the 'hawk.
When the "something blue" in a wedding is a big blue streak in the bride's hair, you know you're in for some fun. Don't miss the custom Batman Converse, the retro fabulous bridesmaids dresses, and the zombie references. Oh, and wait until you see the cake they won in a contest! Free cake is good… free AMAZING cake is awesome.
This wedding is all about learning experiences: you don't need fancy "yay" flags when simple ones bring as much fun, dads are sometimes more mushy-gushy than they let on (see the flashing baby photos for proof!), and sometimes a daytime wedding with fabulous food (drooool potatoes) is totally the way to go. Plus: learn what the hell a "hug line" is and how you can get one, too!
