We recently looked at gender-neutral bridal party proposals. Now let's look at one that celebrates the girly. Is it any wonder that the bride who brought us the manga engagement party created the Sailor Moon bridesmaid gift?
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of geeky posts.
Pink details and crystal bling meets castles and Cthulhu. Add in some traditional elements and a bit of Game of Thrones, and you've got a crafty, DIYed wedding to make everyone have a good ol' time. And then there's "Shenanigans Box" and a Stay-Puft Marshmallow man with which to contend. We may not make it out of here, but we'll go down dancing!
We're on a boat for this one, folks, and the trip is well worth it. We've got two fabulous gowns, a groom styled after a dapper character from Rock Band, groomsmen dancing to the Power Rangers theme, and the sweetest ceremony reading story EVER. Oh, and just try not to be jealous of the unplanned fireworks show during the reception!
Since I'm high-jacking the shoe parade this week, I figured I'd go into some of Ariel's past posts and highlight some of MY favorites. While Ariel's shoe tastes run in the wild and "WTF!?" direction, my shoe tastes are more… a little bit punk-y, a little bit funky, and usually practical. I don't know… what would you call this collection?
I've seen a few remixed boutonniere ideas floating around out there for gents — ones with Spiderman, Superman, Batman, etc. But what about boutonnieres or corsages for the lady folk? Here's what I used to create mine.
Elise and Dick are big fans of Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Battlestar Galactica. They wove their fandoms into a delightfully geeky tapestry, including decorating in Lannister red and yellow, hanging banners with iconography from the films and TV shows, and using blue and purple dragons as tabletop decor. Elise even donned a knee-length Lannister red wedding gown!
Jamie and Tim had an intimate small ceremony with friends and family in their home. They are also World of Warcraft nerds to the nth degree. So I wrote a WoW inclusive ceremony for them. It was about 10 minutes long. Here's it is…
My fiancé Will and I celebrated our engagement with a shoujo manga (Japanese girls' comics)-themed party, complete with DIY manga decorations, a magical cake, and all of our wonderful friends. Like many brides-to-be, I spent a ridiculous amount of time scouring the internet for ideas on how to decorate our small venue on a non-existing budget, as well as incorporate our nerdy little theme. Here's a little recap of the decorations…
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!).
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish in one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a non-traditional couple totally rocking tradition: ceremony in a church, traditional reception, the works. But don't forget the amazing details like the cake topper, the invitation illustration, and the naked hot-tubbing after hours!
