Every week we feature the latest reader photos that have been uploaded to our Flickr pool. (Have YOU been adding your pics?) This week it's all about the excitement of wedding prep in our reader round-up. We have sci-fi-esque Save the Date teasers, comic book invitations, wedding crafts, a cute hedgehog, and even the coolest wedding countdown calendar you've ever seen.
So let's throw our hands (and paper hearts?) in the air and say “Yay for wedding planning!”
We have been working hard on our Save The Date video. We still have a few more weeks of work to go but my fiance made these little teasers of himself and me from some of the footage to give our Council of Matrimony an idea of our vision and to help rally the troops. This is an amazing group of people helping us with this! I can't wait until we can show them the fruits of their labor… oh yeah! And get our Save the Dates sent out to family and friends!
We've featured a lot of awesome wedding nail ideas, but Offbeat Bride reader Rakishlass' hand-painted, comic book-themed wedding nails are beyond awesome. They're freaking KILLER, don't you think?
In fact, custom comic book wedding goodness doesn't stop at nails… George and Tribesmaid Lenabea had their family-friendly, custom comic book-style invitations, made by Etsy seller WeddingLantern. Here it is, in all its glory, being modeled by Lena's super-cute son.
Speaking of super-cute modeling… Tribesmaid kristineneudoerffer uploaded the first instance we've ever seen of a hedgehog modeling an engagement ring. And the little guy is doing a FINE job of it.
Offbeat Bride reader Gagabytierney is doing that all-too-important job or breaking in her wedding shoes — these pretty crocheted TOMS!
Introducing the bubble wrap wedding countdown! Tribesmaid breakaleg512 made this bubble wrap wedding countdown for her brother and his fiance. They get to hang it on their wall and pop a bubble every day until their wedding day! They are so lucky.
- After seeing our d20 engagement ring post, Caroline of Custommade.com sent us a link to their bling-tastic, custom-made R2D2 ring.
- Did y'all see this couple that literally got swept away during the proposal?
- Thinking up some romantic date night ideas for you and your sweetie? Offbeat Home has an idea for you.
- On Offbeat Families, we have a reader that needs advice as her spouse prepares to transition from male to female.
- Have you checked out our favorite reader comments on the Offbeat Empire? Maybe one of yours is over there!
I hate to say it, but y'all haven't been sharing enough photos with us. Go upload your latest planning pics, your wedding pics, or your wedding projects in our Flickr pool right now!
