Wait until you see the interactive puzzle game at this books & RPG wedding

Our wedding was VERY unapologetically us. I love books and reading, my husband loves D&D and roleplaying, and we both love puzzles and escape rooms — so our wedding encompassed all of it. Everywhere we could infuse a bit of flavor to fit these themes, we did. From my bridesmaid's book-bouquets and the groomsmen's d20 boutonnieres, to our wedding arch made of repurposed books, to the actual puzzles guests could solve.

This New South Wales wedding was a whimsical DIYed floral celebration

Belle and Layne chose to play their cards close to their chest when it came to announcing the wedding. In fact, they didn’t announce it was a wedding until guests arrived at the property!

The DIY elements of the day, including Belle’s dress, articulated their creative spirits.

It was all about favorite foods & favorite people at this Perth wedding

They kept it simple and chose all their favourite food vendors to provide nibbles for the night.

I'm already an avid Etsy window shopper, so it was all just a matter of narrowing down the search to a reputable designer who made dresses I liked. Easier said than done? Actually, it was pretty easy…
