Things to love about this gorgeous forest-y wedding: comic book paper flowers, the bride’s amazing vintage dress, their geeky location signs, lots of DIY projects, and their mutual deep love of FOOD (and each other!). Plus, they are both chic as hell. Wait until you hear the bride’s sneaky trick on the groom. Hint: it involves cake.
This bride’s DIY skills are MAD! She made so many of the outfits including her own black and white striped, purple reception gown (which fit amazingly well into their masquerade-themed reception!). Don’t miss the paper flower decor, the forest-y venue, the sexiest boots, and the tiniest aisle-walker ever!
BAM! POW! ZAP! This adorable pair of geek boys wanted to represent Batman, but they like him for different reasons: the heroism and the villains. So they embraced the clash and celebrated with a HEROES vs. VILLAINS cocktail bash! With a huge wedding party representing both sides, an epic Mr. Freeze cake, custom Batman Chucks, amazing illustrations and paintings as decor, old timey sound effects ceremony signs, and a secret officiant reveal, this is a do-not-miss superhero-mad wedding.
These two live in Boston, but decided to celebrate where they met: Milwaukee, Wisconsin! What better way to celebrate a brewery town than by having your wedding at a restored tasting room? Add in some colorful flowers and bridesmaid dresses, yummy fajitas and pie (oh, and some FAB custom-made invitations), and you’ve got this destination wedding full of beer-loving guests. Just watch out for slippery dance floors — this bride knows how that can go.
This pair trekked north to New Hampshire to celebrate with far-flung family, but also to spend their wedding dollars on a state and vendors that support marriage equality. Plus, it’s just damn pretty there! And when a rainy ceremony or guest list drama comes creeping in, this bride knows how to handle it: channel the bad-ass honey badger.
This bride got a little perspective and went from “Super Special Shocking Spectacular” to real-life, community-driven, awesome wedding. With a shmancy museum backdrop, a handfasting, and a ring warming (with a time-saving twist), meaning and tears were not hard to come by. And give me a few non-matchy matchy bridesmaids’ dresses with pockets any day.
