A sea witch elopes underneath a pier with a man holding a guitar

When you see this North Carolina beach wedding, you'll know you've found sea-worthy bliss. A guitar, a bunch of mishaps, and a glam sea witch dress of our dreams… it's so worth the look. Here's what April, the bride, told us about marrying Andy, her doggy co-parent… "I know most people are looking for a very romantic story for how we met, but that wasn't exactly the reality for us…"

When a French couple has a Western-meets-Laotian wedding in Laos

Chansouda and Phalakone are a French couple who grew up and met in Paris, moved to Montreal, and then returned to their roots to get married in Luang Prabang, Laos. They were married in a GORGEOUS villa, Villa Ban Khoy, a French-Lao house which sits on its own small peninsula.

They then had a Laotian ceremony AND a Western wedding in the afternoon. This one is a sight, y'all!

Cheers to this low-key handmade brewery wedding in Chicago

Both the ceremony and reception were very focused on family — our siblings were standing up with us on our respective sides, and our parents and siblings were at the "head" table (which was located in the middle of the room). We ditched several traditions (cake-cutting, bouquet toss, etc.) that would eat up time so we could get straight to eating and dancing.

Our getaway car was my motorcycle — my husband jumped on the back and held my dress as we rode away with cans sounding the alarm of our nuptials.

Go beachside with this relaxed boho wedding in Australia

Jessica and Patrick met on the dance floor of their local pub on a Christmas Eve, and when it came time to propose, Patrick recreated their first date right down to the car he was driving at the time. The goal of this beachside wedding in Australia was a relaxed kind of boho theme with endless fairy lights, and they celebrated their unity late into the night at the Chelsea Yacht Club.

Don't miss the bride's gorgeous dress, the groom's luscious hair, and the dance floor snacks I'm still thinking about…

A wedding in Italy with street performers & a wine ceremony

Elisa and Nathan celebrated their meaningful wedding in Italy with readings by witnesses, sharing promises, exchanging rings, and a wine ceremony. After the ceremony, they walked through the streets of the ancient city of Ascoli Piceno, where they took a few pictures in the famous cafe Meletti and the Capitani Palace in Piazza del Popolo, one of the most beautiful Italian squares. Get ready for major locale envy.

If you weren't already dreaming of an Italian wedding, this one will get you started…
