The tartan dress, the kilts, the Wiccan ceremony… this wedding is such a beautiful mash-up of these two that we can't even deal. The castle venue in The Netherlands is the icing on this super pretty cake. You'll also dig their receiving line alternative. Hint: guests get to NOT stand in line!

In need of a vacation? Work getting you down? Then this wedding is the balm for your soul. A beach resort in Mexico, poolside margaritas (ALL the margaritas!), a dreamy Wai-Ching dress, and a laid-back feel makes this the perfect remedy for all your woes. These two may have encountered some bumps planning a destination wedding, but the end result is beach-tastic.
Color color everywhere and we get to take it all in! This adorable pair celebrated their love of bright colors, bandannas, and dancing at a chill retreat in Washington. With a cake decorating contest, a choreographed dance down the aisle, and super sweet speeches, it looks like a bright and colorful future is in store. Plus, you'll love how they officiated the ceremony themselves!
A Wai-Ching masterpiece, a dapper groom, a majestic arch in New York City, and two ceremonies — this urban wedding in Brooklyn takes our breath away. Add in the handmade paper flower bouquet and the sweet doggie references, and you'll be falling in love, too.
When a Stormtrooper walks you down the aisle and Darth Vader is the flower girl, you know you're in for something geektastically awesome. Add in the video game details, the epic costume party, and the amazingly colorful reception dress, and it's on like Donkey Kong. Oh, and wait until you see their lightsaber candle ceremony!

Let's see here: we've got a circus theme with a dog dressed as a lion, "boot-in-ears," a bearded lady, a carousel horse guestbook, a midway full of games, a flash mob ceremony, an after-party with a ball pit, and a footie pajama football brunch the next day. If you can even process all that awesome, you'll need to make even more room in your brain for the first dance surprise. Hint: a marching band was involved!
Four days of wedding fun is FUN. Four days of wedding fun is also PLANNING. This couple shared the duties for feeding, sheltering, and entertaining a lot of people, and it turned out to be a kick-ass time. They canoed in and out of the ceremony, shared amazing Washington views with friends and family, and even taught everyone to contra dance. Re-live your camp days with these cuties.
If you currently find yourself shopping for a wedding dress, and you're getting frustrated, allow me to re-introduce you to our sponsor Conscious Elegance. The last time we gawked at these eco-friendly dresses was two freaking years ago. Since then the owner Lori has done some awesome things — new dress designs, a spiffy new website, and Lori visited the Lovesick Expo in Boston while cosplaying as Merida from Brave! No seriously, here's photographic evidence of the awesome…
We teased this bride's technicolor gradient dress last week, and now we've got the whole vibrant story including the dress (natch!), the peacock details, Domo-kun cake topper, German unity ritual, and illustrated guest book! Oh, and wait until you read their amazing collection of quotes that was read at the ceremony!
