Glittery skulls, bangin' victory rolls, and some AMAZING shoulder jewelry make this outdoor love fest into a chic little retro-inspired wedding. And don't miss the candle unity ceremony (with grandmother cameos!), a flower girl who totally nailed her job, and a Corvette entrance to the ceremony.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of skulls posts.
Can we talk about coral? It's not quite orange, but not quite pink. It's definitely brighter than peach, and it complements teal perfectly if you're into that kind of thing. It's also the color that I'm single-mindedly fixating on today, with a whole post full of pumps, flats, and the most adorably dapper coral nubuck oxfords. Interestingly, several of these shoes also involve skulls in various ways… I love it when macabre details show up in unexpected places.
Gothic details, a shimmery black dress, lots of skulls, and a sweet little backyard tent for all the loved ones. There was a lot of DIY, and with it, some sage words of advice about self-catering. But our favorite part has to be the story of the father/daughter dance surprise. Get your hanky!
Rebecca and Meeka had to battle downpours throughout their entire wedding day, but even the most torrential rain couldn't stop them from smiling! The two held their ceremony in a barn decorated with animal skulls and rope, and cleverly used white roses to mark seats intended for family members. After jumping the broom, they moved on to the reception space, where plenty of dancing and toasting followed. If you still want more after looking at the photos, videographers Love Brain Films shared their wedding video right here. Get the tissues out! It's a good one.
Tera and Ryan recently wed near downtown San Diego, California, and had pink details everywhere — the flowers, the bride's glittery shoes, even the seating chart and wedding favors were all rose-hued! These two found a way to include a dash of the unexpected throughout the day, like using a neon pink megaphone to hold programs and decorating a guitar case with written ceremony instructions for their guests. And just WAIT until you see the skull-and-earthworm covered groom's cake…
After seeing this wedding, there is no way we all won't be in the mood for Mexican food and a full-on fiesta — which is exactly what this wedding entails. Papel picado, an awesome Mexican restaurant, and tons of DIYed decor worthy of the event make this colorful shindig a stunner. Add in the gorgeous vintage-style chapel and sweet mother/daughter impromptu dance, and you'll be in love with this love.
Oh sure, I've done plenty of round-ups focused on skull shoes. But what about just bones? As we wrap up what's been an amazing Halloween week (and some of us recognizing Dia de los Muertos), it feels like expanding my skull focus to include bones feels about right. Of course lots of these are Iron Fist, but you'll find a few surprises tucked in here, too…
We love us some Halloween week, but we couldn't resist this Dia de los Muertos wedding, too! Sugar skulls, colorful decor at a fab Mexican restaurant… oh, and more sugar skulls! Grab yourself a margarita and check out this adorable hair-styling couple and their Mexican-American wedding love fest.
With pumpkin and spider details, a deliciously gothic black dress, and a hunky, serenading groom, this wedding is super Halloween hotness. Add in the heavy metal cover band, ceremony inside jokes, and skelly cake toppers, and you'll be in love with this love in no time.
One of my favorite things about Halloween is the candy; you can just imagine how excited I got over Offbeat Bride Leslie's Halloween lollipop bouquet. The bouquet was made from lollipops bought at Candy Warehouse, the sticks are covered in pretty printed tapes. There's more wedding candy, and dark Halloween-themed fun where that came from in this special Halloween week reader round-up!
