This venue will blow your theater-loving socks off. The little geeky touches will steal your LEGO-loving hearts. The wedding party music will steal your pants and run away. Wait, this is starting to make less sense. Either way, there is something for everyone in this fancy-shmancy meets geeky and goofy wedding in a gorgeous theater. Go peek!
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of geeky posts.
The theme of this wedding is "day and night," which is perfectly represented by the colors (white suits and dark purple dresses!) and the cakes, and basically makes our gothic-loving hearts melt. Keep your eyes open for the bride's amazing hairstyle and color, black veils, special toast to the guests, and some killer dance moves from the groom, too!
Since my last rant against all the "helpful" lists and articles on weddings, I've been thinking a lot about why I was getting so offended by them. Why I've been getting so offended about everything negative and wedding-related. When's the last time I got this worked up over something that I took so damn personally, and that everyone else took so personally too? And then last night, when I was reading about Dashcon, I realized it. Fandom!
Pink glasses, purple groom's hair, and a poly-inclusive (and everything else-inclusive!) — this Jewish-meets-Boston-meets-New York wedding is just a dream. The couple dealt with some challenges: disabilities, long-distance planning, and how to incorporate all their interests — but damn did they do it well! Smoosh your face against the screen and give these cuties a virtual hug.
If you're still reading this and haven't already clicked to see more of the fabulous red dress, dapper white suit, and DRAGON HEADPIECE, there's more to see in this white-knight-marries-a-lovely-dragon wedding. We're talking handmade dragon wings, light-up leather bouquets, Magic: the Gathering rings, Frozen karaoke, and a Mario Kart shell toss. If that doesn't get you, nothing will!
Hitchhiker's Guide, Game of Thrones, and zombie references all wrapped up in a joke-filled (and super meaningful!) ceremony and dance party — that's our kind of fun. Plus, you just might love their wedding party alternative at the ceremony. Oh, and don't miss the really good advice on how to mingle with the guests at the reception!
It's getting to be that time of year again: Halloween wedding season! We can always count on seeing loads of weddings where guests are encouraged to come in costume. Because, seriously, costumes always amp up the fun factor. Here are 18 weddings that totally get it right when it comes to rocking the costumes.
You guys, this wedding will fulfill many desires: steampunk gear, Adventure Time decor, World of Warcraft bunting, and board games galore. It's everything our geeky hearts love. Add in the gorgeous paper flower bouquets, the live-action re-telling of A Lovely Love Story, and the airships and rockets, and you're in for a wild, pop-cultured filled ride with these cuties.
A little Alice in Wonderland, a smidge of Doctor Who, and two geeky kids in the Philippines tie the knot, geek-style. With a pink princess gown, little Alices and Ums running around, and some crafty projects, there was no way this wasn't going to be fun. Not even a typhoon warning was stopping it. Oh, and wait until you hear about the family's first dance starring an Xbox!
It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. Today we're looking at two retro and nerdy birds who combined these two loves into a kick-ass party. Think DIY flowers, a classic car, and a life-size Spider-Man and Mary Jane cut-out! Oh, and just wait until you see the daddy/daughter first look.
Are you in the mood for some serious castle partying with swords, flutes, medieval garb, and the most epic phoenix and Lord of the Rings cake ever? Yeah, we thought so. Get ready for a gorgeous venue, intricate elements ceremony, costume awards, sword arches, and the most lush fantasy wedding we've seen in a long time. And just wait until you see the bride's dad get crowned king of Gondor!
