Monocles and Mario Kart and much to love in this wedding — from the 1,000 origami paper cranes to the father of the bride's amazing outfit, this DIY wedding has it all: self-catered vegan cupcakes (and an entire vegan dessert bar, ahem!), personalized vows, a divine red dress, and a seriously cool venue. Tip of the top hat to you two, too!
Follow those ruby slippers! Loving the simplicity of this ceremony in the park with a brother from each side of this partnership co-officiating before heading back to the couple's apartment to celebrate. The cozy party features lots of beaming faces of all ages — even a quiet moment with their cats.
Lisa and Charlie traveled to Washington DC from Rhode Island to be married at the Million Puppet March in October. The ceremony was officiated by Tiffany Newman and took place during the muppet gathering at Lincoln Park. Afterwards, they walked to the capitol for a big puppet show with Charlies wearing a Big Bird costume and Lisa as Kermit.
Get out your eagle eyes, because there's a lot to see in this raptor-lovin' wedding. Not only were live birds of prey there for the ogling, but guests got a chance to live in this couple's shared brainspace for a day, with hula hoops, a drum circle, and a couple of celebrities. As if that wasn't enough, guests got their sax on in an ultimate sax-off, and that's after the whole party was Rick Rolled. They're never gonna give you up….
Christina and Alex had an orchid-theme wedding with lots of orchids in the bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and the cake. The groom even wore a custom-made tux with appliqued orchids all over it. Christina wore a '50s-style cocktail dress and yellow heels that totally offset her amazing ink. Plus, her grandma was her maid of honor! D'aww.
Vanessa and Osiris are originally from Venezuela, and now live and work in London. They planned a three-part event around London to show their global guests (from Venezuela to LA and beyond) some gorgeous sights in the place they love. From ceremony to a three hour boat cruise with a cream tea, to rockin' reception, everything was lovely and sweet and delicious food was everywhere.
It's Halloween week at Offbeat Bride and one detail we especially love is an amazing black dress. We love them all year round, but smooshing them into one big post just screams goth Halloween-ness. We've rounded up our favorite Offbeat Brides sporting black gowns and some of our favorites to buy if you're in the market.
Gothic and sarcastic weds bubbles and sunshine, and it's not without its challenges. But these two ladies manage to pull together a self-catered vegetarian feast in a colorful space all on a budget, because one is crafty and the other can cook! It sounds like a match to me.
