Amanda & Alex's silly DIY barbecue wedding

A hardcore band nerd married a bookworm who doesn't know how to play a kazoo properly, but damned if they didn't totally celebrate their shared loves of science fiction, games, music, and all things ridiculous. With a modest budget, they had a wedding that had something for everyone: board games, frisbee, a photo booth, dancing, booze, and lots and lots of BBQ.

Karen & Frank's elven fairytale wedding

A little D&D, a little Lord of the Rings, and a whole lot of fairytale flourishes make this wedding a dream for any fantasy lover. We've also got sword arches, a sweet and teary first look, an element ceremony, a choreographed first dance, and a challenging custom-made dress (that was TOTALLY worth it!). Get out your Lembas bread and settle in for this one.

Sandi Jo & John's Neo-Victorian circus sideshow wedding

Inspiration can come from anywhere, but in this case, it came straight from the venue, The Quixotic WorldThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them. What once was a low-key tea party wedding became a raucous, burlesque "Gears and Garters" Victorian circus sideshow wedding! We're talking corsets, hula hoops, clowns, and sideshow acts — all following a sweet handfasting.

Anais & Ira's low-key handmade crafty wedding

One way to bond over the wedding is to get everyone and their mother involved in the tiny details. That's exactly what this couple did, and it made planning a little more sane than it could have been. With paper and knitted flowers, an all-vegan-plus-pork menu, and lots of woodsy and crafty details, you know a lot of heart (and probably sweat) went into this wedding. Oh, and don't forget to pour one out for the missing home-brewed beer that could have been.
