A little goth, a little geek, and a teeny wedding for us to love. Don't miss the awesome certificate of marriage, the very meaningful handfasting cords, the Gallery Serpentine custom corset dress, and the Minuscule-themed cupcakes. Plus, the bride shares some very handy advice if you're planning on rocking a corset. Oh, and you'll love the bride's hilarious way of "proposing." It worked!

Nei and Mike eloped in Las Vegas and then got weddinged three months later. Since Nei hails from Cambodia they each donned wedding wear from the country as a nod to her family's origins. Nei actually wore two incredible glittery dresses (one red, and one silver) and two tiaras — talk about bling! The couple and their family created nearly every detail, including the bouquets, red paper cranes (they had 500!), and tree branch centerpieces. The pair finished up the night by diving face-first into their three-tiered red wedding cake, which might be one of the fastest ways to eat wedding cake ever.
Emily and Phil met in 2002 through mutual friends in the UK Garrison, a Star Wars 501st legion group, and have been together ever since. The pair chose to have a wedding that combined all of their favorite things: leopard print, music, and, of course, Star Wars. The bridal party wore leopard-printed dresses to match Emily's self-designed shoes, and the bride's floor-length red bridal gown was matched by the groomsmen's red shirts.
Michelle and Jose fused black, red, and a playful sense of fun for their wedding at California's The Secret Garden Lindsay. The pair brought a whole lot of DIY to the day, including Michelle adding a detachable section to her red wedding gown, and even self-catering her reception. The ceremony was presented in both English and Spanish, and the wedding party managed to pile into a bounce house for a handful of unexpected bridal party photos!
Elise and Dick are big fans of Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Battlestar Galactica. They wove their fandoms into a delightfully geeky tapestry, including decorating in Lannister red and yellow, hanging banners with iconography from the films and TV shows, and using blue and purple dragons as tabletop decor. Elise even donned a knee-length Lannister red wedding gown!
Small, affordable, a vacation (and total party!), and all rock 'n' roll? That's a wedding we can handle! Add in a fabulous red and black vintage dress, some first-time parasailing, and some barefoot on the beach vows, and you'll be ready to sink your own feet in this wedding sand. Even a last-minute date change couldn't squash the fun.
This isn't a Game of Thrones red wedding, but it definitely is a RED RED WEDDING! A vivid crimson dress, shiny gold and red cake, and red crystal bouquets make it a much happier occasion. But if you're planning to live stream your wedding, these two have a really important tip for you…
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.
These two put a lot of thought into every aspect of the day — they designed their own outfits (including modifying purchased items when they couldn't find what they were looking for) and combined their design and computing skills to create the bespoke invitations, stationery, and a website to match the theme. Adam's mum and best man designed the centerpieces, and the pair had some of Adelina's family's old jewelry redesigned into unique wedding bands with a never-ending vine engraved on them. I LOVE!
