Our big gay pagan rainbow woodland festival wedding

We had guests from as far apart as Japan, California, and Germany. We tried to invoke all the things we loved in our wedding day — geeky nods to Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, Jonathan Coulton, and the Lord of the Rings; the Obergefell v Hodges ruling for Jess's career and theatrical touches for mine. We asked our guests to wear 'whatever makes you feel pretty.' We then celebrated with ice cream, lawn games, and street food, and ended the evening with a ceilidh and session. Oh, and there was an owl, and llamas.

This viking elopement inspiration is all about untamed beauty on the coast

We love a good viking wedding and this viking wedding inspiration was more wild and untamed than we'd ever seen. It's adventurous, romantic, and seriously inspiring if you're planning one of your own. Set on the beautiful Oregon coast and inspired by Nordic traditions, they rocked bold blues, silvers, and greens to match the atmosphere. There are two different looks to see, both separate love stories in themselves. Don't miss the era-inspired weaponry, the gorgeous geode cake, the cave-dotted landscape, the custom-made gowns, and the chill-inducing florals. I can almost hear the battle cries now…

A Midsummer night's dream meets Alice in Wonderland fantasy wedding

I decided early on I wanted to be a mystical fairy goddess for the wedding. We are both nerds, so there were many "easter eggs" hidden in parts of our wedding for people to find, from "game over" music at the end of the night to messages hidden in binary code on our save-the-dates. We are both feminists, so it was also very important to leave behind the more traditional, patriarchal, gender-specific parts of American weddings. Don't miss the flower crowns on BOTH of them!

A chapel in Tuscon & playing their own reception: a fab desert New Year's Eve wedding

Kendra and Thomas had a crafty, musical, beer-filled wedding day in Tuscon with heirlooms galore and so many meaningful moments: "Our priorities for the wedding were good music, good photos, good beer, an open guest list so we could include all of our family and friends (and their kids!), vegetarian Mexican food, and a FUN PARTY. We also wanted our wedding to be authentically us. We wanted it to reflect who we are and celebrate the life we have built together and the future we will share…"

Spring is coming and these dried flower crowns fulfill your long-lasting headpiece dreams

Winter may be coming in Game of Thrones, but spring weddings are on the horizon and with them, FLOWER CROWNS. But why not take that rustic and boho look a step further and get yourself a semi-permanent, totally re-wearable style with dried flowers? I found some truly lovely pieces that include preserved flowers, rustic blooms, alternative add-ins, and truly wearable crowns for the wedding day and beyond.
