This is Offbeat Bride's archive of gamers posts.
There are a few ways to avoid a bunch of time-consuming group portraits, but this one is one of our favorites. These two rented an open air brass-railed trolley for a perfectly suited steampunk backdrop for their photo shoot! Add that to the bride's handmade reception gown, amazing steamy costumes, and a gamer-themed musical at the reception, and you'll be totally transported. Oh, and wait until you see who ended up wearing a white wedding gown. Hint: it wasn't the bride!
Ultra chic vintage fashion lovers meets geeky 8-bit LEGO — all is right with the world. This gorgeous pair opted for a 1960s feel in Las Vegas, complete with a surprise serenade by some Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin impersonators! Add in the kiss switcheroo from the groom during the ceremony and the bride's brother's hilarious anecdote, and you'll be loving it as much as we do.
First we've got midway games, fire performances, and balloon animals. Then there's an underground cold war museum bunker, Fallout-themed decor, and post-apocalyptic catering. It's a fusion of carnival and the apocalypse that we can totally get behind! That doesn't even cover the fabulously redesigned heirloom dress and 3D-printed rings. And just wait until you see what happened with the helicopter ring delivery.
An enchanted forest theme, costumes, homemade mead, and a handfasting… we're in the mood for some fantastical forest-y love! Add in a giant inflatable D20, some DIY, and a few choice vow alterations, and you've got all kinds of fun twists. Plus, you'll love who walked the bride down the aisle!
Retro video game photo booth props, a Mario cake, Plants Vs. Zombies cupcakes, and a chic gastropub in New York City… it's a GAYmer wedding gone sophisticated! After a big snafu just getting to the venue, it was smooth sailing for the rest of the night (even if a TON of tears were shed). Get your achievement by clicking on this wedding and finding all the adorable gamer details.
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.
Put on your goggles and your neo-Victorian gear, because this is STEAMPUNK WEEK! Today we've got an unexpectedly steampunk wedding with pumpkin wine chillers, kilts, and a fabulous handfasting. Oh, and their favorite moment is one of those that will totally make you say "awww."
These Geeky Gamer wedding invitations are just the tip of the nerdy iceberg that is Dynamic Wedding Stationery's geeky wedding invitation choices. From science nerds to gamer geeks and everything in between, all my geeks brethren will be thinking "these ARE the [invites] I've been looking for"…
This pair wanted to mix some traditions with offbeat ways. So get ready for traditional Filipino food, invitations, barongs, and 35 sponsors! They also opted for a Unitarian ceremony, which presented its own challenge for the bride's Catholic family. You'll definitely want to heed her advice when it comes to that. So head in and ogle the gorgeous Wai-Ching and Unique Vintage dresses, the purple glow-y tent, and the choreographed first dance story.
