This genderqueer and nonbinary couple’s vision for their gothic viking wedding was that they were all returning from battle, holding their weapons. What a vibe! See how this couple charged headfirst into planning a nontraditional gothic viking wedding.
Our wedding was VERY unapologetically us. I love books and reading, my husband loves D&D and roleplaying, and we both love puzzles and escape rooms — so our wedding encompassed all of it. Everywhere we could infuse a bit of flavor to fit these themes, we did. From my bridesmaid's book-bouquets and the groomsmen's d20 boutonnieres, to our wedding arch made of repurposed books, to the actual puzzles guests could solve.
The groom told us: “Neither of us are traditional so we decided our theme was going to be all about magic and fantasy combining my love of Dungeons & Dragons with her love of actual magic (runes, crystals, divination, astrology, etc.). It’s like an alchemy of interests.”
Whether you’re planning to propose to your partner who loves D&D, Harry Potter, and Star Wars or your partner who loves rustic wood details and geometric designs, there’s a proposal ring box here for you. And the best part? You can shift this proposal box into a ring box for your ceremony! It’s a two-fer.
Don’t miss the capybara(!) ring box, the blooming flower pop-up box, the seashell box, the acorn box, and the DRAGON EGG box…
Our wedding theme was Dungeons & Dragons! It's not just a game to us, it's a lifestyle. I have been playing since I was 12 — my dad Dungeon Mastered a group for me and my best girlfriends. Later, I met my husband through D&D. I have developed the most amazing friendships and family relationships through D&D and it only made sense to make it our wedding theme. We even picked character classes for the event. I was a Paladin and Henry was a Wizard…
The D&D geek theme started because I had the thought to myself, "you have encountered a wedding ceremony — roll for initiative." We both thought it was funny, and it sort of spiraled from there that all of our favorite nerdy things could be incorporated.
