A Midsummer night's dream meets Alice in Wonderland fantasy wedding

I decided early on I wanted to be a mystical fairy goddess for the wedding. We are both nerds, so there were many "easter eggs" hidden in parts of our wedding for people to find, from "game over" music at the end of the night to messages hidden in binary code on our save-the-dates. We are both feminists, so it was also very important to leave behind the more traditional, patriarchal, gender-specific parts of American weddings. Don't miss the flower crowns on BOTH of them!

A tea party wedding with dinosaurs, DIY, & a gorgeous gown handmade by the bride

We knew we wanted things to be really classy and elegant, but we had a small budget. Since we couldn’t afford a lot of flowers, we bought a ton of Christmas lights on sale the year before and just went nuts with white twinkle lights and it worked out beautifully. Chris loves dinosaurs, so I snuck them in everywhere without telling him: large ones held our table numbers and small ones were just hidden in strange places, all painted gold. The biggest highlight is that I made my own gown!

It's guitars & malt shop love at this retro diner-themed wedding

I am a retro pinup and my husband is a phenomenal guitar player. What better way to combine the two passions with a retro diner theme wedding? With tabletop jukeboxes and condiment caddies on every table, an electric guitar as our guestbook, ice cream sundae wedges on my feet, 45s lining the aisle, my bridesmaids carrying albums down the aisle instead of bouquets, guitar pick place cards, and a working jukebox at the front of the ceremony space, and guitar pick flower boutonnieres, our wedding was a combination of retro style and rock 'n' roll.

Jewel tones & sweet music tones at this flower-filled brewery wedding in Philly

Without a doubt, we knew we wanted our wedding to be colorful. I've always been drawn to bohemian decor and rich hues, so it was a no-brainer that we would tie in jewel tones and gold for our small touches. I gave each of my bridesmaids a color and let them go to town. It was fun to see them each choose a dress that fit their individual styles. (Don't miss all the amazing song choices in this one, y'all!)

A queer sequined Monday morning microwedding with a monster milkshake

This small elopement in New York City was full of sparkles, sequins, the best of friends, tons of tears, a mini dance party in the park, and a hugh-jass ice cream milkshake. Is it possible to even imagine a more intimate, fun-filled, and stress-free wedding?

You're in a for a big, whipped cream and cherry-covered treat with this one, y'all…
