We had what ended up being a disaster of a camping wedding. So we resolved to do it again someday. That day was our 10 year anniversary. For round two of the camping wedding, we rented out a campsite and I wore a green wedding dress to fit our fey (fairy) theme.
The question of how to tailor our ceremony to be “authentically us” yet not alienate some of the very Christian guests and family was definitely a point of discussion when we were planning our Pagan wedding ceremony.
Melanie and Jake had a Elven, Celtic, and Viking inspired wedding with incredible DIY elements. Plus, their wedding party wielded weapons instead of floral bouquets!
Y’all know we loves us some alternative non-floral bouquets. Y’all know we don’t think anyone has to carry a bouquet at ALL, let alone a floral bouquet. We thought we’d seen it all: brooch bouquets, book bouquets (BOOK-quets), tambourines, stuffed animals, Barbie dolls, cotton candy, pinwheels, and more… But this is the first time we’ve seen dagger bridesmaid bouquets!
Use wedding vows from ancient faiths to bring both freshness and tradition to your ceremony.
This Celtic-inspired fantasy wedding has a gorgeous dress with added fantasy sleeves, hot kilts, handmade dragon cake toppers, board games galore, and some wild wedding planning mishaps. But it all came together in this blend of tradition and geekery. Don’t miss the sweet favorite moment involving the bride’s 92-year-old father, too!
