An orchid tux, peeks of yellow, and lots of ink

Christina and Alex had an orchid-theme wedding with lots of orchids in the bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and the cake. The groom even wore a custom-made tux with appliqued orchids all over it. Christina wore a '50s-style cocktail dress and yellow heels that totally offset her amazing ink. Plus, her grandma was her maid of honor! D'aww.

Toni & Mark's Civil War costumed picnic wedding

With a love for Civil War reenactment, it was no surprise that this couple and their friends were totally down for a period costume picnic. Add in tons of help from those friends and family with a potluck pulled pork feast, and you've got a community-supported party in the making. You'll also want to hear the story of the groom saving the bride from a rogue box fan.

Rebecca & Kain Kaare's vintage, camp ground, tea party wedding

We were on a very tight budget and ended up spending only $3000 including our wedding clothes, rings, and the honeymoon. We had the wedding party at a campground to save cash. For food, I made alot myself but also got sandwiches from Jimmy Johns because it's my favorite food. Kaare drew the design for our wedding invitation so we were able to make those ourselves.

We went with an eclectic look; clashing bright colors (mostly orange and paisley), bowls of skittles mingled with tea cups, and cupcake stands we made ourselves out of vintage plates. We also included my husband's heritage by having a traditional Norwegian wedding cake in addition to the cupcakes.
