green dress

A green wedding dress can be so fresh and gorgeous — we love ’em emerald, chartreuse, and especially bright green! We’ve got tons of real pictures of real brides wearing really green wedding dresses. Oh, and if you can’t get enough of this color, we’ve also got a whole bunch of posts about green wedding shoes.

This meet-cute story turned galaxy wedding is truly our moon and stars

Jacqueline and William’s moon and stars-themed wedding sent us into the galaxy when we saw it. But their meet-cute story is on a whole other level. Just wait until you hear how her galaxy dress went from conversation starter to fab wedding garb. Hear the story straight from this gorgeous bride (the owner of Pinup Pixie Boutique, the first black-owned pinup boutique in Louisiana, by the way!).

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.
