This week we're celebrating woodsy, outdoor weddings before it gets too cold. Today we've got a UK wedding focused on keeping things eco-friendly, educational for non-pagans, and full of music. With a handmade corset dress, a ceremony in the round, and a forest setting, this pair totally knows how to do fun, frolic, and rock 'n' roll out in the wilderness.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of wedding in the round posts.
Looks like the fun started the day before their summer wedding for Sam and Erin … and by fun, I mean a completely chill, totally relaxing, sun-soaked evening by the water. The two brides swam and goofed off with loved ones to kick off their wedding weekend. The laid-back vibe carried over to the next day while the couple got ready together: Sam in strapless white and Erin in a jacket and cuffed pants.
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.
From self-catering the event to a little social anxiety to some rain before the ceremony, this wedding could have gone awry. But this pair ended up with a super positive, love-affirming, and GORGEOUS mountain-y wedding. Even the ceremony ended up unintentionally extra awesome by becoming a wedding in the round! Don't forget to find the MINGLO photo, too!
This wedding explodes with color, papel picado, and Dia de los Muertos imagery. But seriously… the best parts are the choreographed ceremony entrance and the amazing choreographed hip hop first dance (that we teased last week!). Don't fret, because there are videos for both that you don't want to miss!
When venues give you lemons, host the wedding in a backyard! This pair took their tie-dyed shirts, ice cream sundae bar, volleyballs, guitars, bongos, and fireworks straight home, and it was a better party for it! Kick off your shoes and enjoy this casual and bare-footed wedding.
A fabulous red renaissance dress, kilts all around, a squee-worthy mushroom cake, and a dragon ring bearer — it can only mean the cutest little wedding in the round you ever did see. And if you're unsure of how to include your guests in the ceremony, you'll want to see how this bride created her bouquet! Oh, and watch out for surprise flying birdseed.
The cake topper includes legos, doughnuts, and cupcakes. What more do I need to say? Click! Click now!
