This venue will blow your theater-loving socks off. The little geeky touches will steal your LEGO-loving hearts. The wedding party music will steal your pants and run away. Wait, this is starting to make less sense. Either way, there is something for everyone in this fancy-shmancy meets geeky and goofy wedding in a gorgeous theater. Go peek!
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of secular posts.
A painted mailbox, an adorably awkward bride/grandfather walk down the aisle, and a top-your-own doughnut bar — oh hell yeah, this wedding is Fun City. This wedding also has one of the funniest moments we've read about in awhile. Let's just say there was a really big mix-up in locations.
Look, let me just say in advance: we put a lot of puppy shots into this wedding. It couldn't be resisted. It just happened and now you have to live with it. You're welcome. But really, the views in this wedding alone make it a must-see. Oh, and the flower girl dresses. And the rainbow cakes. Oh yeah, and the sweet father/daughter dance to Green Day. Oh and yeah, the most adorable puppers ever to crash a ceremony. Don't take my word for it: go look!
The theme of this wedding is "day and night," which is perfectly represented by the colors (white suits and dark purple dresses!) and the cakes, and basically makes our gothic-loving hearts melt. Keep your eyes open for the bride's amazing hairstyle and color, black veils, special toast to the guests, and some killer dance moves from the groom, too!
A little Firefly, some rustic DIYed touches, and a last-minute gown… this wedding is full of surprises and gorgeous details. Add in the homebrew, the hair-styling save by the officiant, and the community-crafted love, and you've got a wedding to remember. And don't miss the funniest moment — it involves Batman!
These two are killing it with cute. You have to see their green and blue matching vest outfits and the bride's pants outfit with heels and a feather hair clip. Though this wedding had some serious grief surrounding it, they were still able to have a fantastic time with immediate family, lots of rough-housing in the photos, and some carrot cake vows and Chapstick ceremony sweetness. Yep… Chapstick.
It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. Today's wedding in a fab venue brings us comic book paper flowers, '40s-style superhero illustrations, and movie references all over the place.
Oh, hello fabulous and colorful venue of our dreams. You're hosting a super elegant Scotland-meets-America wedding featuring a bride with a red faux-hawk and a slew of men in kilts? Oh, you do know what we like. Lots of DIY projects, origami bouquets, and amazing mural decor? Now you're just putting us on. Guess we'll have to just see it to believe it.
A wee bit of geek chic, two fabulous venues, and a whole lot of style — this wedding is all kinds of sweet and memorable. Their secular and meaningful ceremony also did a kick-ass job of combining a handfasting and some super sweet vows. You will want to read them! Let's head in and see the Star Wars LEGOs, the flowing ceremony backdrop, and chic urban loft.
This sci-fi and steampunk-loving wedding is so full of DIY projects and amazing sights, you'll be pretty damn dazzled. Add in the amazing Beatles cover band, their "steampunk bling table," and of course, the San Diego Zoo setting, and you're in for animals, costumes, and a good ol' time.
Rare is the time we get a sports-themed submission written by a Tribesdude! It was extra special since it merited a few legit happy tears during the "last dance" section. Come enjoy the boat venue, sweet H.P. Lovecraft-infused ceremony, whiskey ceremony, and impromptu karaoke session. Oh, and wait until you see what the bouquets were made of!
