Two white dresses, two red bouquets, and two huge grins: check! Justice and Tasha both look ecstatic after their ceremony. There was also some multicolored dresses, a wedding party in jewel-toned purple, playing cards in bouquets, and a rainbow of handfasting cords. It makes a dull Monday much brighter. Check out what our readers submitted to Pinterest, the Offbeat Bride Tribe, and the Flickr Pool this week.

Knitted Cthulhu cake toppers?! Ellen and Paul know what we (and all our bridethulhus) like. Bonus: we've seen Ellen in her own bridethulhu shirt here. Photo by Ann and Kam Photography

Ellen also had these super colorful handfasting cords that were made by her sister-in-law.

They also had pie -- lots of pie. And 'lots' is exactly the amount of pie I like at weddings. Photo by Nathan Mitchell Photography

Ooh, and here's a good shot of a super relaxed Lina and the wedding party (carrying all kinds of fun stuff!). Photo by Knot Shots Photography

Kim and her groom used this little ampersand to add some charm to the good ol' shoe shot while renewing their vows.

I spotted one of Stephanie's bridesmaids in the Flickr Pool and had to share how amazing she looked. It makes me think of this post and how alternative bridesmaids (and brides!) make Offbeat Bride a little more fun every day.

  1. I agree with Amanda The Great above! That last dress is amazing and just calls for spinning in the field. This was a really perfect montage and an excellent Monday pick me up!

  2. May I just say how great it is to see two African American brides in love and how great it is to see their AA families supporting them in that gorgeous picture. It's rare and it brings tears to my eyes seeing it.

  3. That last picture is me :o) The dress was amazing and I loved it. We had it made by a lovely seller on ebay and also had tutu's made for my daughter and ring girl in the same colours.
