A grand mosaic art-piece venue, Mexican vegan menu, a swing-y retro dress, and some Curious George — this is one visually stimulating wedding! Rain may have added some last-minute scrambling, but when you see it, you'll know it was worth it. And don't miss the sand mishap in the unity ceremony!
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of short dress posts.
This pair wanted to stay true to themselves despite overwhelming pressure from friends and family. But they found the right balance between pressure and advice and totally made it work. We're now looking at a gorgeous outdoor wedding-in-the-round, bicycle-themed decor, and a two-day celebration that allowed for a reception free from anxiety.
A glossary program, library book ring holder, author table names, and a big old stack of books made out of cake — we LOVE book week! This wedding is a double dose of awesome with a ceremony and reception at a California vineyard and a second reception in Glasgow, Scotland! We're glad a book kept these two together so we could see this wedding!
Attention fans of Harry Potter, Princess Bride, Discworld, RPGs, shoe games, chemistry, adorableness, and all things sugar and spice: there is something in this wedding for you. Homages to books and pop culture abound in this Aussie wedding with two super cuties who are totally pro at combining their interests into a kick-ass theme.
Let's see: a clifftop ceremony in Hawaii, shaved ice, ono grinds (great food), and a blended 'ohana (family) — get ready for some serious sweetness. And just wait until you hear about their favorite moment in the car ride over! It definitely ups the happy Hawaiian family ante.
Brides Angela and Heather encouraged guests young and old to sign their Quaker wedding certificate at their Maryland wedding last September. No, really, even the kids signed it. "It was the most kid-friendly wedding we have ever been to," said photographer Tara Bannerji. Add to that the rustic setting of Seneca Creek State Park, the overcast look after a night of heavy rain, and peace-evoking details like origami cranes and Korean wedding ducks, and the result is a wedding that pretty much radiates calm and ease.
You might remember this short and busty bride from her custom dress process. We've now got the whole story including their fabulously elegant guild hall venue, amazing vintage travel theme, and celebrity moments on the way to the church and after the ceremony. Plus, spy all the sweet pastel details like the cupcakes, the confetti, and the buttons on the back of the bride's dress!
If you're in the mood for GIANT crepe paper flower bouquets, a sweet and impromptu first look, and a couple super obviously and deliriously in love, then this wedding is your jam. Oh, and this bride's experience with a day-of coordinator (who we know well!), is invaluable. And you'll love the song that they kind-sorta accidentally danced to for their first dance!
This woodsy punk wedding was a full day of games, singing, barbecue, swimming, and a sweet little ceremony smack dab in the middle. Plus, everyone looked amazing in corsets, tutus, and leather flowers. Oh, and don't miss this kitty-loving couple's photo-bomber!
Four days of wedding fun is FUN. Four days of wedding fun is also PLANNING. This couple shared the duties for feeding, sheltering, and entertaining a lot of people, and it turned out to be a kick-ass time. They canoed in and out of the ceremony, shared amazing Washington views with friends and family, and even taught everyone to contra dance. Re-live your camp days with these cuties.
Ultra chic vintage fashion lovers meets geeky 8-bit LEGO — all is right with the world. This gorgeous pair opted for a 1960s feel in Las Vegas, complete with a surprise serenade by some Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin impersonators! Add in the kiss switcheroo from the groom during the ceremony and the bride's brother's hilarious anecdote, and you'll be loving it as much as we do.
