A whimsical & intimate pop culture wedding in Chicago? As you wish

Offbeat Bride's Executive Editor got married! Catherine and her husband Steven share a ton of geeky and pop culture interests so it made sense to infuse fun references, soundtrack themes, and fandom homages into their whimsical, pop culture-themed wedding in Chicago. It was held at a West Loop venue with a feast, an ice cream cart, a Hogwarts Great Hall photo booth, and dancing awkwardly into the night.

Don't miss the bride's custom dyed ombre unicorn dress!

Mawwiage in tights: a Princess Bride meets Robin Hood: Men in Tights wedding

There's one definite way to get me excited about a wedding: tell me it's a Princess Bride meets Robin Hood: Men in Tights theme. I am not worthy. Kaitlyn and Blaise love all things cosplay and Renaissance so it made perfect sense. We're talking groomsmen in tights, two themed dresses and a crown for the bride (one that she made!), elf ears for everyone, and costumes galore including Gandalf, Dr. Strange, and Sonny and Sher-wood.

A rainy fall farm wedding with woodworking details

Emily and Rodney had a vintage-inspired wedding in Michigan with fall colors, tattoos, Princess Bride and Harry Potter cameos, and woodworking details. Emily is a woodworker and made the inlay for Rodney's ring. She and her grandfather own a woodworking business so they were able to make most of the decor together.

Her uncle officiated the wedding, starting off with a homage to The Princess Bride, which had everyone laughing. She had some Harry Potter-inspired vows which made everyone sob.

A magical Pacific Northwest fairytale wedding with a little Princess Bride (and a mountain goat!)

A little bit of a Princess Bride theme is a favorite way to party. Just take a peek at their themed cornhole game! The rain may have added some stress, but these ladies were troopers when it came to making the best of it and having a blast. When you say your vows in the company of a curious mountain goat (with dubious intentions!), it's bound to be a killer party. Don't miss their slip-up when they crowdsourced their bouquets from guests! It turned into a really sweet moment.
