OMGWTFBOBAFETT! This is amazing. It was one bad-ass groom's cake for Khanh & Jamie's wedding. This is one of the few cakes I've seen where I truly WOULDN'T want to cut into it.

This week in our Flickr pool, we have a bad-ass groom's cake, a wonderful first look session, a gorgeous $25 wedding dress, a surprise proposal, and paper flowers even geekier than a Boba Fett cake!

How hot is Zach and his bride Jill? This is part of a perfectly-shot first look session by Elissa RThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them. I'm also truly digging the combo of Jills green dress and that purple tie. But let's look at the adorable reveal…

D'awwwww. Jill's smile is just infectious, isn't it?

Close Up - Paper FlowersCheck out Offbeat Bride reader ScarlettBurn's paper wedding flowers. She explains:

These are some of my favorite flowers made from Sudoku puzzles, a Scott Pilgrim comic, Fables comic, a Paper Source newsletter, and a Disneyland album sent to Annual Pass holders. All handmade.

Jenny's vintage wedding dress cost $25, and was found at an estate sale by a friend of hers who then had it cleaned and restored it! Talk about awesome friends!

This Save the Date was designed and colored with freaking colored pencils by Offbeat Bride reader The Steampunk Bride's Maid of Honor! We love the octopus on the airship. The vintage-style postcard back was designed by the bride.

  2. I love that $25 dress! It's so clean and pretty. <3
    My almost-dress was $8, actually. My mother and I lived in a small town for a few months and happened upon a thrift store kind of just hidden away. The prices were amazing, and we learned they always had these sales. So I was browsing and I found…-her-, this gorgeous blush pink ballgown with a TRAIN. It was $32, I couldn't afford that. 🙁 I stared at it sadly for the longest time until the cashier informed me that "children's clothes" were on sale…and that included prom dresses! After several tacked-on sales that day, it was mine for $8. My mother proudly bought it because she really wanted to buy my dress, just…you know, money's a big thing. She was smiling so wide that day!

    I sadly learned I'm too tall! I was too excited and forgot to try it on. Everyone and their grandmother(including myself) wants to see me in a floor length, so I'm thinking it can be a killer reception dress with a little tweaking or I can somehow fill out the bottom with a fun petticoat.
