heavy metal wedding

This is Offbeat Bride’s celebration of heavy metal weddings, including some song ideas… and even a few vikings!

DonnaMarie & Ricky’s unholy union and heavy metal cabaret wedding

These metal heads know how to rock. They also know how to make an amazing heavy metal cabaret afterparty on a budget. Board games, ear plugs, lighters, and metal horns were required and provided. Oh, and you’re going to going to freak over the most awesome light-up Ghostbusters cake evar!

A “melt your face & make your grandma dance” rock ‘n’ metal wedding playlist

On my wedding profile, I got a question from one reader who asked “what type of metal did you play that the guests could tolerate all night?” The answer is, well, EVERY TYPE! You have to play all types of metal for those non-metal heads to the pros. We also used our laptop and rented the PA equipment because we could not get a DJ that would cooperate with what we wanted to be played. Here is a list of the main songs we used that night.

Rhiannon & Graham’s viking and folk-metal wedding by a castle

Rhiannon & Graham are both huge fans of Scandinavian Folk Metal. They like it because the lyrics are rooted in history and mythology. They used this as their inspiration while creating their Viking inspired ceremony as well as the overall aesthetic of the wedding.
