Harry Potter fans, sit up and take notice! Joshua and Meredith had THE most themed-out wedding paying homage to the Boy Who Lived. The colors were Hogwarts houses (that would be red for Gryffindor, yellow for Hufflepuff, blue for Ravenclaw, and green for Slytherin, of course), the cake pops were Golden Snitches, Meredith wore a time turner, and the guestbook was nothing less than The Monster Book of Monsters. Guests got wands as favors, Hedwig stood guard over the programs, and Joshua and Meredith said their vows over an exploding Goblet of Fire while a Snape-look-alike presided over all. No, really, their officiant wore a wig and everything. That's dedication to a theme, yo.

Y'aaaaar! A pirate's wedding for me! This geeky pair loves pirates and loves costumes EVEN MORE! So when it came to getting all the guests involved, these two did some serious pirate strong-arming and it totally worked. There were corsets, swords instead of bouquets, and no landlubbers in sight.
A few days ago, I had an idea for the bridesmaids' bouquets to have a sword hilt for a handle.I just finished the first one, version 1.0, and there are some things I want to tweak and change. But for the most part, this is it! Now, let me show you how I made it so that you too can wield your flowers on your special day.
Time Lords, Daleks, the TARDIS, and two hearts… this truly is a Doctor Who extravaganza. The groom tells this tale and you can totally tell that this is truly his dream wedding. We're psyched that this geek boy found his perfect geek girl. Oh, and just try to keep the tears at bay when you read the groom's vows. Siiiiigh.
This pair loves their Elder Scrolls and Game of Thrones and managed to seamlessly integrate their geeky interests into their decor. They also totally found a way to hack their social anxiety by having escape routes and special signals when things got too overwhelming. Plus, you'll love the bride's black Dr. Marten's hidden under her floofy white dress!
Pick a side: Horde or Alliance for this geektastic World of Warcraft, LEGO, and crafted weapons (worthy of the best cosplay) wedding. Instead of a sweetheart table, a loot table… instead of traditional table numbers, raid bosses. Pick your weapon, regen your mana, and get ready to raid at this wedding worthy of the word "WoW."
A countryside handfasting, geeky references all over the place, and sweet homemade touches (like the bride's handmade dress!) — this UK wedding is a dream for geeky lovers of gorgeous scenery. Add in some giant lawn games like Jenga and Connect Four and this turned into a seriously fun fête. Keep a look out for the Blackadder reference in the unity ceremony, too!
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!
