Shieldmaidens slay with dagger bridesmaid bouquets

Y’all know we loves us some alternative non-floral bouquets. Y’all know we don’t think anyone has to carry a bouquet at ALL, let alone a floral bouquet. We thought we’d seen it all: brooch bouquets, book bouquets (BOOK-quets), tambourines, stuffed animals, Barbie dolls, cotton candy, pinwheels, and more… But this is the first time we’ve seen dagger bridesmaid bouquets!

Wedding vows from ancient faiths

Use wedding vows from ancient faiths to bring both freshness and tradition to your ceremony.

Dragons and games and kilts at Léonie & Tom’s Celtic fantasy wedding

This Celtic-inspired fantasy wedding has a gorgeous dress with added fantasy sleeves, hot kilts, handmade dragon cake toppers, board games galore, and some wild wedding planning mishaps. But it all came together in this blend of tradition and geekery. Don’t miss the sweet favorite moment involving the bride’s 92-year-old father, too!

KB & Fran’s eco Celtic “goyish gay” wedding

The bagpipes, the flowers, the tartan, the grins — this wedding is an eco-celtic dreamland. Their handfasting ceremony was officiated by a dear friend — from her smartphone — and wait till you see who joined the band onstage!

Kathleen & Lucky’s traditional 1950s wedding

This pair is a self-described June and Ward Cleaver queer couple, which is just rad. The wedding itself mirrored this with its 1950s-style traditional vows and style. They also found time to sneak off during the reception for a little alone time, which was not missed by the hooting and hollering crowd.

Kate & Justin’s beach and buttons veggie wedding

On top of the couple’s awesome ink and gorgeous venue (with carousel!), there was also a beach just made for dipping. Not only did the groom’s guys take the plunge, the bride ended up swimming too, dress and all! With a button-y bouquet and vegetarian menu, this was never destined to be your typical beach-side soiree.
