Growing up in auctions, flea markets, and antique-dealing fathers definitely left it’s mark on these repurposing and recycling kids. Like they say, “old trumps new every time!” So an old-fashioned, rural retro wedding was totally in order. Just watch out for the awesome unity ceremony… it’s a little dangerous, but definitely exciting.
This pair of rockabillies wanted to go all-out with retro style: record place settings, cake centerpieces with tattoo designs, pin-up and greaser stations (for timely coifs!), and a killer band. You have to see what the groom did at the reception to surprise the bride. Let’s just say it involves Elvis. Oh, and I think the groom’s “cake” will appeal to some of you.
A hardcore band nerd married a bookworm who doesn’t know how to play a kazoo properly, but damned if they didn’t totally celebrate their shared loves of science fiction, games, music, and all things ridiculous. With a modest budget, they had a wedding that had something for everyone: board games, frisbee, a photo booth, dancing, booze, and lots and lots of BBQ.
These two had some interesting dilemmas: managing expectations from a very Catholic family and a not-so-Catholic family, balancing the needs of disabilities and the recovery community, and having a super low budget. But we can all learn from this bride’s kick-ass attitude about keeping things accessible and authentic! Plus, we’re totally behind any wedding that ends with a D&D campaign.
Sign us up for a mini-holiday wedding like this one any day: a small log cabin on the ocean in southern Scotland, bonfires, barbecue, bounce house, and loads of giggly, smiley love. If the scenery isn’t enough to get you going, the bride’s mum’s devil horns will! It was a small destination wedding with big, amazing DIY details.
Robots and aliens have invaded weddings this week! It’s making me want to break it down in a binary solo. Today’s couple’s robo-invitation theme spread into their photo booth, place settings, and sweetheart table! You’ll also want to check out the suited-up ladies of the wedding party, the amazing wire bouquets, and the sweet-ass vows.
