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!
Autumn has begun here in the Northern Hemisphere, and I couldn't be more stoked. Autumn weddings are my favourites. How gorgeous is this photo from Emily and Kyle's autumnal handcrafted wedding? Grab your pumpkin spice-flavoured beverage of choice, snuggle in, and let's check out some autumnal inspiration from the archives!
These two are self-actualizing superheroes who know how to throw a party that means something to them, even managing to bring in their passion for social justice. Plus, it's got some amazing details: gorgeous red dress, awesome rustic centerpieces, sweet ceremony readings. And you definitely need to see how the groom pranked the bride at the reception. Hint: All the Single Ladies would totally get it.
This pair likes to take the old proverb "you can't have your cake and eat it, too" as both a personal challenge and an individual goal. Therefore, when they were planning their wedding and couldn't decide between two drastically different affairs (a free-spirited private destination wedding adventure versus an intricately detailed small community backyard handfasting), they decided to have them both! Prepare for gorgeous scenery and naughty favors ahead!
It's one thing to take on a big wedding; it's a whole other thing to plan two back-to-back ceremonies and parties! But once you see the retro fashion, Asian-inspired details, Chinese dancing lions, and sweet band tribute from the groom, you'll totally agree that it's a double happiness moment. OH, and a ceremonial martial arts board breaking by the bride? It happened — twice.
Presidential fake tats, the Washington DC skyline on the invites, and some of DC's best barbecue food truck on hand for the noms — it's a loving homage to this couple's city on President's Day. It was also a tribute to some hardcore DIY, including tons of hand-dyed muslin, crepe paper bouquets, and even a homemade cake. You'll also want to take note of how to totally own a wedding day rap.
