If you're in the mood for GIANT crepe paper flower bouquets, a sweet and impromptu first look, and a couple super obviously and deliriously in love, then this wedding is your jam. Oh, and this bride's experience with a day-of coordinator (who we know well!), is invaluable. And you'll love the song that they kind-sorta accidentally danced to for their first dance!
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of paper flowers posts.
Turkey legs, jousts, games, wench-y corsets, and a golden rose ceremony: sounds like a Renaissance festival wedding for the ages. And then add in the blessing from the king and queen, the adorable mini-chapel, and the tree-climbing uncle-with-a-camera, and you've got a wedding that'll melt any garb-wearing Renny around.
This wedding is a pretty easy sell: they had a BEER UNICORN! And vodka slushies! And ocotopus and mustache dresses! And tentacle fingers! And animal centerpieces! And the Cliffs of Insanity! We're dropping-our-pants-happy about this Texas-meets-Ireland wedding. It's too much — go on without us and enjoy!
Paper flowers, local friendors, and a love for their hometown make this wedding hit home. Plus, this bride took two vintage dresses and made her own dove grey dream dress with 70 years of history. And we will all learn at least one thing from this wedding: keep the dance floor splits to a minimum or face the crotch consequences!
We previewed this couple's AMAZING neon bicycle part centerpieces before, but little did we know that we'd also get to see an acrobatic silks performance, an amazingly visual contrast with the venue (that we love!), and even more photos of the centerpiece works of art! Come look and see the neon splendor!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a vintage dress, a huge homemade Dalek (and mini flower girl Dalek!), and a wedding guide made for us to "not panic!" It's a sci-fi wedding… so say us all!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a pair with a penchant for books, comics, and of course, the 10th Doctor! The groom even wore his signature suit. They both wore Chucks, carried Sonic Screwdrivers, and had a lovely handfasting to boot.
A gorgeous forest setting, lovely Pagan symbolism, and of course, three fabulous brides in long white gowns! They may have had to find a balance between different backgrounds, religions, and pre-conceived notions, but the end result was a kick-ass wedding that everyone could enjoy. Just learn from these blue-tongued ladies that a rainbow cake sometimes has it's side effects…
Put on your goggles and your neo-Victorian gear, because this is STEAMPUNK WEEK! Today we've got a Victorian-styled red rose wedding paired with a book theme and a red dress with a peacock train. We're talking a book cake, book pages bunting, a fabulous DIYed top hat, and all the vivid red you can handle.
Are you ready for endless smiles and glee? Because Elba and Brad's Walnut Creek, California wedding is going to send 'em on over. These two got married at the Shadeland Ranch Museum and had one of the brightest, most colorful and fun weddings around — the festivities included freeing candy from a star-shaped piñata and drinking tons of home brewed beer (the photographer tells us it was amazing).
We know ya'll love some paper flowers, and this crafty barn wedding totally fits the bill for DIY fun. But it's the ceremony that gets us sniffling. It's got a super cute start, a meaningful unity ceremony, and a big, joyful hug at the end. We saved the best for last, though: groomsman getting naked on the dance floor. It's a must-see.
