These UK gamers certainly know how to put effort into their decor — you might lose your shit over their amazing papercraft centerpieces based on game developers. But it's the little touches that made us grin: the Calvin & Hobbes vows, the kitty collar moment, the serenade-turned-glass crash moment(!), and of course, the big love for their friends and family. This is a geektastic-meets-metal winner, you guys.

This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got a couple of voracious readers getting bookishly wed in an adorable two-room school-house complete with book page flowers, "yay" flags, and a really sweet tribute to the grandparents.
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got a backyard wedding with family vows, Mad-Libs, polka dots, trivia, and tons of pizza. How did these two know exactly what we wanted to see today? Perk up your midweek with this super sweet, family-centric wedding on a Tuesday.
Feast your eyes on this California wedding with a handmade hooded steampunk dress, a gorgeous, feathered brooch bouquet, Game of Thrones cake toppers, hot air balloon centerpieces, and lots of steampunk garb. But the sweetest elements are the "family band" that brought both sides together, and the family's first dance. So many little girls flying through the air!
Peacock feathers, vintage glass, a super gorgeous mountain venue, and two lovely ladies getting hitched — this is one to see, folks. They may have had some issues carting guests around the mountain, but it was all worth it just to listen to the brides' original song composed for the wedding!
We are loving the vintage-inspired DIY details, burlap decor and fabric flowers, and lovely farm venue at this South African wedding. But when you see the bride's multi-layered, multicolored dress, you'll feel right tingly in all the right ways. Add in some mini dinosaurs, fire dancing, and a really gorgeous grey cake, and you'll be on board just like us.
Fans of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli: today we've got your dream wedding! This pair pays homage to movies like Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Whisper of the Heart, Princess Mononoke, and more. Plus, they managed to smoosh in their love for lots of other fantasy and sci-fi awesomeness, too! Don't miss how the cake designer totally nailed the perfect complement to their Totoro cake.
I recently posted on Facebook that I want anything emblazoned with "bride" to be changed to "fat bride." My identity as a fat woman is no secret, and I'm not ashamed of it. I bare my body with pride. However, not everyone feels the same way.
It be Talk Like a Pirate Day again, me hearties, and Offbeat Bride readers can always be counted on to give us amazing pirate-themed weddings. This year we've got amazing handmade pirate garb, historical dances, necklaces instead of rings, and even a released mini Kraken. Strap on yer boots, ye landlubber, and take a look.
A Nicaraguan groom, a Cuban-Bolivian bride from the U.S., and a glorious beach ceremony in Nicaragua — this is some multicultural fabulousness. But the best part is how much we learned from the bride and her search for unique local vendors for her destination wedding. Plus, get your hankies ready for the bride's story of her mother and the treasure boxes.
We're falling into the so-excited-it's-almost-fall trap hardcore. But that's okay: trap us in your cool embrace and crunchy leaves, fall! Here's a little horror and zombies pre-Halloween preview to whet your appetite for the season. The dessert bar alone is to die for… think anatomical hearts, zombie mousse graves, and a cake with a giant bloody bite out of it. It's ghoulishly delicious!
