A music-heavy Brooklyn wedding with dinosaurs, balloons, and a drumming bride

Meet Mary and Matt, two Brooklyn-based musicians who wanted their wedding to include their fave bands and tunes in a big way. Each table at the reception was named after a band (some local, some super famous) and both the bride and groom took turns playing with their band during the reception! The multi-talented pair’s creativity didn’t stop there, as Mary also DIYed most of the bouquets and decor herself.

Ben and Erin hosted their ceremony and reception at New Jersey’s Atlantic City Aquarium.

A wild and bright DIY circus-themed Canadian wedding complete with streamers and ice cream

Shai and Crystal win at planning: they pulled off their backyard circus-themed wedding in under a month! Family and friends pitched in by building everything from the red-and-white striped tent to the colorful balloon arch. A parade of feathers, bubbles, and a tiny clown ring bearer led Crystal up the polka dot aisle, and guests tossed streamers into the air at the ceremony’s conclusion. These two opted to use the time immediately following the ceremony to snag ice cream and take photos at a baseball park. The night was rounded out with Indian food and barbecue, followed by tie-dyed cupcakes and a skeleton-topped cake.

The wedding decor was 100% DIYed by the couple and their family members. They handcrafted striped and polka-dotted yellow and orange lanterns, created wedding signs with sturdy paper and puff paint, and tucked floral centerpieces into coffee mug vases.
