Jinger and Calvin got married completely off the grid. They from their hometown of New York City to the southern jungles of the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. The rugged conditions matched the Lost-themed day, with everything from the save the dates to the bridal party’s entrance music included nods to the television series.
For those about to rock: here’s some rock ‘n’ roll wedding inspiration for you! Ant and Alana met while playing in different local rock bands, and they managed to include a lot of fun music-heavy details in their wedding day. As you can see in the video, each member of the bridal party walked into the ceremony to the rock song of his or her choice — think Madonna, Led Zeppelin, and Prince. Guests were given customized guitar pick wedding favors, and floral centerpieces were ditched in favor of numbered albums. Vinyl fans, get ready: the record-shaped wedding cake looks incredible!
For those of you who are more advanced heel-walkers than I am, I decided to round up a collection of shoes that I absolutely adore… but probably can’t walk in. If you can manage these on your wedding day, I bow down to you. In fact, maybe that’s the solution: if someone bows down and carries you around on your wedding day, these are all the perfect shoes. PERFECT.
Michelle and Jose fused black, red, and a playful sense of fun for their wedding at California’s The Secret Garden Lindsay. The pair brought a whole lot of DIY to the day, including Michelle adding a detachable section to her red wedding gown, and even self-catering her reception. The ceremony was presented in both English and Spanish, and the wedding party managed to pile into a bounce house for a handful of unexpected bridal party photos!
There is so much SWEET, sweet goodness in this wedding! Looking for a dancing astronaut? Here you go! Want to see a bride dressed as Little Red Riding Hood while being escorted by a wolf? Right here. There are also skull cake toppers, red polka-dot flats, and centerpieces featuring posts from various horror movies (including The Shining). Basically: it’s a creeptastic Halloween wedding dreamscape.
We love us some rockabilly chic, and this wedding has got the goods. Classic cars, victory rolls, a tattoo-inspired cake, and a handmade black retro dress. Add in the wise-cracking brother who walked the bride down the aisle and some sweet family memorial photos, and you’ve got the recipe for a family-focused good time.
