A float-y princess gown, some retro stylings, a few train-lover photos, and much much adorableness abounds at this Aussie wedding. We also love the carriage ride, the DIY bits an bobs, and of course, the rainbow sprinkle cake! Add in the blended cultural group dance and impromptu "stair-tripping" game, and you're in for an easy-going and rad time for all (even if they had to smoosh 130 people into a ceremony space meant for 50!).

If you're not hooting and hollering and holding up a yay flag for this colorful bonanza of a DIY wedding, then we are not doing our jobs. Come for the Red Wedding sangria and bridezilla card box… stay for the naked cake and "clown-vomit garland." Oh, and get this: there's a time-to-kiss gong, some quite literal "toasts," and a MACHETE involved!
Pick your jaws up off your floors, y'all. We've got some beautiful photos of Keith and Hawzien's wedding to be looking at. The couple got married outdoors at the Denver Botanical Gardens last September. Totally appropriate, right, that Hawzien opted for flowers in her hair during the ceremony? Gorgeous as Keith and Hawzien are while they say their vows (an in a v. cute lil gazebo), you'll want to stick around for the reception photos. From the Hip Photography tells me that the couple decided to include some of Hawzien's Ethiopian traditions throughout their reception. Hawzien goes through a small transformation with a change to her hairstyle, and there are, no joke, gold chairs for the couple to sit at for dinner.
Chelle and Dave's wedding at Chicago's Hard Rock Hotel may look all glitz and glamour, but we got the inside scoop about the nerdiness that lurked below. Thanks, Naturally Yours Events! While the couple were married by A good friend officiated the wedding, and guests filled out crossword-puzzle programs. A game-loving couple, Chelle and Dave sprinkled lots of other much-beloved faves throughout their wedding and reception. Keep your eyes peeled for LEGO and '80s movies references.
It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week!

It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. Today we've got an offbeat lite celebration of all things vintage comic books. Think ring bearers in capes, superhero cufflinks, and even some sexy comic book leggings under the bride's dress!
A wee bit of geek chic, two fabulous venues, and a whole lot of style — this wedding is all kinds of sweet and memorable. Their secular and meaningful ceremony also did a kick-ass job of combining a handfasting and some super sweet vows. You will want to read them! Let's head in and see the Star Wars LEGOs, the flowing ceremony backdrop, and chic urban loft.
Tradition meets tons of personalization with this Disney and movie-themed wedding. We're talking illustrations from favorite movies, Disney centerpieces, 3D cut-outs, and lots of elements from their signature styles. It was both a dry wedding and a no-dancing wedding, but with Truth or Dare Jenga, scavenger hunts, a photo booth, and a gelato bar, there was no shortage of super-fun-ness. And just wait until you read the bride's favorite moment. It's like you're there!
This pair had a big surprise just two weeks after getting engaged: the groom was being deployed. And so started the long-distance planning (Florida to Ohio) with a deployed groom to boot! But you'd never know it from the looks of this garden wedding with gorgeous views, literary details, and a superhero ring bearer.
These two traditional, feminist, queer, Christian women are an interesting mix. Add in their vegetarian reception, and you can imagine how many challenges they may have faced. But, outside of some catering reservations, you'd never know it! This wedding blends all of these factors into a sweet and lovely day that fits these two like a glove.
Theater work totally prepares you for planning a wedding, this we know. So approaching this event as a big production worked in this pair's favor. Totally budget-conscious as well as completely stylish, they used DIY projects and community help for their theater-inspired decor and themes. But the father/daughter dance/impromptu skit takes the cake!
