I trawled our statistics to find the 15 most viral, most read, most shared real offbeat weddings of all time to end 2015. If there's one thing I've learned from this exercise, it's that Offbeat Bride readers definitely share my passion for Harry Potter (and I couldn't be more psyched!). Here's our countdown of the 15 most viral weddings on Offbeat Bride. Which ones do YOU remember?
15: The Sailor Moon-inspired moonlight gala
After her Austenland-themed shower, we know Michelle & William's Art Deco Sailor Moon-inspired moonlight gala was going to keep everyone buzzing. We were not wrong.
14: The Access-a-wedding
Natalie & Tim's green-filled access-a-wedding had so many details that made it go viral: the bride's killer green-lined dress (that she made herself!), the groom's awesome mindset, and the most epic wedding logo ever. Go see!
13: The one with the kick-ass tattoos
Sarah & Tasha's tattooed and not-strictly-traditional wedding had one special highlight that totally rocked: their adjoining bridge tattoos. We're so not surprised that these ladies were popular.
12: The first of a few Harry Potter weddings
A magical and bookish Harry Potter wedding with a golden snitch cake — yeah, the snitch cake alone makes me want to show this one to everyone at The Three Broomsticks.
11: The Jessica Rabbit shoot
This Jessica Rabbit bridal look had us saying, “How do I love thee?” This one is the only non-real wedding in this list as it's a styled fashion shoot, but man did it deserve some love. I mean, can you say gorgeous? Then again, maybe part of why it got so much traffic was the commentroversy over the lack of smiling.
10: The time-traveling 1930s wedding
This 1930s garden party wedding looks like it was teleported to 2015 from the past. Ashley, Robert, and their friends dress like this as a hobby, so it was a natural fit.
9: Harry Potter and the next viral wedding
The second most popular Potterphile wedding on our list is just as amazing as the last with its golden snitch details, Unbreakable Vow ring book, and house outfit photo booth.
8: The one with the blue dress
The curvaceous blue dress, that groom's leather outfit, the headpiece, those glow-in-the-dark tents — no wonder this wedding got Buzzfeed-level of clicks. Heart eyes!
7: The one with the denim shirt
This bride got married in the shirt she wore on her first date with her husband, which broke the internet for a day. Casual meets formal meets OUR HEARTS.
6:The one with the BBC star
Liz & Jo’s disability-friendly wedding bash gets re-picked up once in a while since bride Liz is a popular actor in the UK. But we just love their story.
5: A most epic fantasy wedding
Heather & Bobby's Lord of the Rings meets Game of Thrones fantasy wedding is that sweet spot of heavy-on-theme meets heavy-on-style. It's just so perfectly lush and nerdy chic. Plus, the groom wore a codpiece. COME ON.
4: The three-bride wedding
Kitten, Brynn, and Doll's rainbow garden of poly love three-bride wedding definitely got some attention for the whole three-bride thing, but it's also because these three are GORGEOUS and had a seriously beautiful forest wedding. Oh, and they're mommies now!
3: The Dr. Seuss wedding of our dreams
This Dr. Seuss wedding in a Philadelphia cemetery had book titles as escort cards, Truffula trees for centerpieces everywhere, a guest with a genuine Lorax mustache. Oh, and a most beauteous pink dress!
2: The final Harry Potter wedding!
Were you thinking that a wizarding world wedding might be number one? Nope, but it's close! Second to the top of our list is none other than this Harry Potter wedding, complete with exploding Goblet of Fire, house tables, Monster Book of Monsters guest book, and a Snape lookalike.
1: The one with THE HAIR
I'm not going to lie, the hair, fashion, and flowers are the standout for me in this goth wedding, but it's the overall glamour that pulls everyone in. The Swarovski heels, the dark and glitzy bouquets, and of course the perfectly purple mane of hair… le sigh. It's no wonder this one tops our list of most viral offbeat weddings.
