Y'aaaaar! A pirate's wedding for me! This geeky pair loves pirates and loves costumes EVEN MORE! So when it came to getting all the guests involved, these two did some serious pirate strong-arming and it totally worked. There were corsets, swords instead of bouquets, and no landlubbers in sight.

Instead of bridesmaids or groomsmen we're having a Wedding Crew. Which, seeing as how 90% of us met via our Pirate Kickball League (underground/rebel pirate more than "yaaar!" Pirate) we thought it was fitting to go with the pirate theme for this little project. Hope this inspires you to do something fun for your crew if you have the time and the desire to do so!
We love us some dudes in makeup. Give us eyeliner and a little contouring any day. Reader Kirstin wanted to see some examples for makeup-wearing guys and we obliged. We found some good examples from the Offbeat Bride archives, a couple of YouTube gurus, and of course, some celebrities rockin' the makeup.
Elizabeth and Erik managed to mix a pirate theme with Las Vegas and Michael Jackson, and came away with this amazing glammed-up shindig worthy of the themes. Held at Treasure Island, the biggest surprise at the reception was the Michael Jackson impersonator!
When I saw this wedding come through, it was a jumble of amazing words all up in my grill: lesbians, pirates, bowling, my home state! And once I saw the photos, I was LOVING it. A pirate ship cake cut with a sword, a Jenga guest book, and major costume participation all in a bowling alley means only the most fun evar.

It's Talk Like a Pirate Day, so we have some pirate-y fun in store including a wee little pirate and a couple of swarthy stowaways. But mostly we've got some impressive stuff happening with satyr horns, bowie knife cake cutters, high-fiving couples, napping couples, and a bouquet with a vendetta. There's also a link showing you how to craft a Harry Potter howler! Shiver me timbers, it's a good'un.
