Marriage equality has arrived and it's not just for "the gays." Wedding customs are evolving for all. Wedding parties are progressing, as well, and the tradition of "boys on one side of the aisle, girls on the other" is being adapted so that each spouse-to-be gets to stand with his or her tightest pals — regardless of gender. But not everybody is ready for this party. Some guests see a bridesman or groomsgal and don't know what to do. Here are a few simple tips for managing OPA ("Other People's Anxiety") and performing at your very best.
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.
They met playing Final Fantasy, had tons of gamer-happy music, and an epic Portal cake. I think we're looking at a gamer's paradise wedding here. A real live stand-up comedian at the reception made this dance-free wedding have no lack of entertainment. Oh, and you'll love how the bride was given away by her dad and stepdad! Adorableness: check.
Orange groves, bee details, and pastel hues: it's the stuff of miracles when snow covers many of us. This wedding also boasts a fabulous handmade dress, potluck food (AND potluck performances!), a tree planting ceremony, and adorable wedding party fashion. So much sweetness, so little time.
This wedding explodes with color, papel picado, and Dia de los Muertos imagery. But seriously… the best parts are the choreographed ceremony entrance and the amazing choreographed hip hop first dance (that we teased last week!). Don't fret, because there are videos for both that you don't want to miss!
A bit of trivia for you: This couple's matching reds and rings will make you swoon. You'll love how this couple got all their guests involved in their wedding, from crafty table games to speeches and songs.
Jillian and Michael were married at the Emmett Robinson Theater at College of Charleston, their alma mater. Their officiant was their former theater professor, Joy Vandervort-Cobb. They had a movie-themed reception with television screens looping their engagement photos and movie popcorn and movie quotes decor. It's a film lover's dream!
These two are artsy and it shows. This pair crafted themselves into a tizzy, but the result were some gorgeous details. Even the portable toilets were pretty! But add in a bouquet toss/wire snafu, a groomsgirl who matches the groomsmen, and the bride's awesome green dress, and there's way more to see than just the decor.
This wedding is full of eye candy including mug centerpieces with nesting doll favors, handmade clutch purses for the bridesmaids that matched their colorful shoes, and an adorably accurate custom cake topper on their rainbow dot cake! It was obvious that this wedding would be full of music, dashes of crafty goodness, and lots of love. There are also some key bits of advice in this one, including putting a time limit on your ring warming!
