Ann & Eric's Detroit lovefest with old timey revelry

These two love them some old timey fun and brought it ALL to their wedding in the bride's hometown of Detroit.

Get on your penny-farthing and come take a peek!

Betsy & Tiffany's queer Southern glitter circus wedding

Red and blue and DIY all over — these two ladies know how to throw a stylish and entertaining wedding! They included all of their talented community — performers and bakers alike — and their tribute to what their specific type of marriage means to them is tear-inducing and spot-on. And you MUST see one of the bride's mom's awesome, newly acquired aerialist skills! She's one bad-ass mother.

Megan & Joe's relaxed daytime wedding with a hug line

This wedding is all about learning experiences: you don't need fancy "yay" flags when simple ones bring as much fun, dads are sometimes more mushy-gushy than they let on (see the flashing baby photos for proof!), and sometimes a daytime wedding with fabulous food (drooool potatoes) is totally the way to go. Plus: learn what the hell a "hug line" is and how you can get one, too!

Katherine & James' barefoot eco-friendly forest wedding

This week we're letting our hair down and getting back to nature in the wild, wild outdoors! Today we've got a barefoot couple in the forests of Piccadilly with rainbows, a teepee, and one very fun Kombi. They managed to make it all happen while compromising with a religious family, coaxing a van into carrying a clown car-load, and dealing with a very naughty bird at the ceremony.

You'll also want to check over at Offbeat Home & Life and Offbeat Families to see what they have going on. Let's stick the landing, stick it to the man, and stick together as we overuse puns and peruse the stuff-on-a-stick archives.

Monica & Eirik's pop culture desert wedding

This couple makes a burned down ancient ruin of a church look gooooooooood. Paper flowers made from their first emails to each other, windy veil hilarity, and the biggest happiest laughing smiles are just the tip of the iceberg. Can you spot all the fabulous pop culture references?

Mary & Charles' crafty roller derby tiki wedding

This destination wedding brings a reluctant to fly Midwest family to San Diego for a tiki-meets-roller derby party with cool DIY details like crocheted bouquets. Things get pretty crazy at the reception with an order to drink more booze and a lady in a chicken hat. It also takes a pretty cool bride to admit her mistake in her advice to other Offbeat Brides.
