This pair took serious advantage of the awesome locales in their new city of Chicago. After a $10(!!) cultural center ceremony and an amazing brunch with their immediate family, they traversed the urban terrain for a super fun portrait session. This is the ultimate combination of intimacy, budget-friendly, and bonding with a new city. And a ring snafu at the ceremony turned out to have a really sweet solution.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of tea length dress posts.
Bright red dresses and turquoise parasols, matching green wedding dresses and boutonnieres, vintage-style wedding party with wire-y bouquets, and a wedding photo that looks like it should be on the cover of an indie rock album… this week y'all were BRINGING IT when it comes to wedding fashions.
Cheers to this couple who married themselves, sans officiant. You've got to see the fabulous details… the couch for the wedding party to lounge, the huge booze goblets, the fabulous entry vehicle, and of course, the guest appearance of a certain memorable "Impressive Clergyman" character. And all that's before they even get to the first karaoke!

Elvis has entered the building at this rad retro wedding. Bust out your 3D glasses to take in all the '50s details from the classic car getaway to one swingin' Daddy-o. We have your ticket to see this amazing wedding.
This retro '20s bash was held in a theater, had three headpiece changes (my kind of girl), and eclectic music (including a ceremony serenade from the bride's father's band!). And get ready to get a toothache from the tutu flower girls and kids reading Shel Silverstein at the ceremony. PLUS: a 1920s-themed photo booth makes everyone era-ready!
Diana (pictured above on her wedding day) is a self-described "one lady sweat shop." Based in her home town of Miami, Florida, she cranks out the custom dress gold as our sponsor Miss Brache. Miss Brache is all about custom bridesmaids and wedding dresses in rockabilly and pin-up styles. Let's all gawk over her designs, and talk about how you can get one custom made for YOUR wedding day with a special discount.
Ok, why didn't someone tell me about Ruche.com sooner?! For those of you who are leaning towards the vintage-y/classic end of the wedding aesthetics spectrum (as opposed to the rainbow carnival freakout or zombie-chic), this place is your new favorite website. Some of their stuff reminds me of BHLDN's styling, but without the $128 buckets and other overpriced pomp. Their bridal lookbooks? TO DIE FOR. They're like vintage-tinged fever dreams that I want to crawl into and pretend I'm more understated and chic than I actually am.
There are polka dot toy cars and a real light pink classic car! I'm having a retro polka dot, craftastic, doughnut cake orgasm over here. You will, too, when you see this wedding.
Zombies! Mutated Baby Dolls! Leopard Wedding Dress! Bloody Tuxedo Shirts! And the groom has a CHAINSAW!!!! Ruuuuuuuuuun! You must see this wedding.
