Heather & Ian’s goth with a splash of purple wedding

Purple gown, purple tie, purple button bouquets… the splashes of color in this goth wedding are fabulous. You’re also going to love the sneaky science bits — the bride’s necklace, the groom’s boutonniere — and the seating chart will make you positively bug out! Plus, there’s a photo of the newlyweds in a winding staircase that you have to see to believe.

Crystal & Denny’s rockabilly red and turquoise wedding

If falling in love is like owning a dog, these two took the leash and ran with it. Their ceremony honored their love for each other and their beloved pets. Their rockabilly sensibilities, with a Hard Rock Cafe backdrop, made for a very musically-inspired event, complete with guestbook guitar and fab playlist. All that, and an amazing red dress — wait til you see what’s under it!

Star Trek rings, big lollipops, and one wet ceremony

Tribesmaid Southaustinista and her groom show off their Star Trek rings (and smooching abilities!). It was a fabulously nerd-tastic start to the week with reader submissions from the Tribe, the Offbeat Flickr Pool, and Pinterest.

Charmaine & Chris’ vintage diner and opera house wedding

After first meeting outside of a retro diner, these two had one of their two ceremonies at that same diner. I fell in love with the bride’s custom-made lacy, layered dress, three-generation photo, and multi-colored sweater. The men of the wedding party looked mighty spiffy in their bow ties and argyle, too. On top of it all, they were able to stay under a pretty tight budget with two ceremonies and a restaurant reception.

A farm wedding handmade with love

Jennifer and Russ held a gorgeous almost-totally-DIYed wedding at Jennifer’s parent’s farm in Ocala, FL. After their outdoor ceremony under a giant tree, they had a reception with a bourbon bar, alcoholic cupcakes, and a s’mores pit!

Kristen & Shawn’s theater production Hallo-wedding

This masquerade-y, Pagan, theatrical wedding has so much going for it: DIY projects everywhere (including cocktail hats that I want to steal), a serenade from the groom, awesome community help, and a sweet and funny couple to root for. Plus, you have to love how the bride follows her heart and dons her dream dress color.
