Offbeat Wedding Themes

At Offbeat Bride, we firmly believe that NO wedding needs a theme. We love small and simple weddings! No decor, no theme, no problem. That being said, some of our readers absolutely ADORE their theme weddings, and this is our page to celebrate some of our very favorites.

    …Wait, but what about YOUR theme?

    This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the weddings we've featured — what about boho weddings? Or rustic weddings? Pirates? 1920s vintage? Rainbows? Lesbian weddings? Brides in glasses? Plus size?

    We've been sharing offbeat weddings since 2007, so chances are if you can dream it… we've posted it!

    Go ahead, try to stump us! Type a search in the box on any page — look for your identity, region, season, aesthetic, religion, favorite colors, special diets, or anything else. We've got it!
