Faith & Aaron’s steamy Muppet wedding with a touch of Stephen Colbert

This combination of themes may seem a little odd at first, but once you see it, you love it! We’ve got Stephen Colbert-inspired cue cards, spin drums, steamy Western/sci-fi garb (complete with ray guns), flame-powered centerpieces, and some sweet children’s vows. You might also be inspired by their half public/half private vows, too. Oh, and wait until you see the faux “ink bleeder” pen made by the groom for the signing of the marriage certificate! Totally bad-ass.

A sweet and small fashionable wedding among the sequoias

Eloisa and Dan’s destination wedding surrounded by sequoias makes me want to cuddle up around a fire in my sleeping bag. They’re weren’t completely isolated though, since they were at Seven Circles Retreat in the teeny town of Badger, CA (population: 140!). If getting away from it all (and fashionably so) doesn’t pull you in, these other details just might: jam jar favors, a thumb print motorbike sketch, homemade lemon and mint water, and lots of Philippine and Romanian home-cooked food.

Jodi & Kim’s glow sticks and bling wedding

This wedding has an official “flower disbursement” and “ring security agents.” Basically, they mean business. On top of that, a dog walked down the aisle, a fish was memorialized, and glow sticks featured prominently in the unity ceremony. I think we’re in for some fun. Oh, and you have to read about the jaw-dropping encounter with their first videographer. It was NUTS.

Beth & Patrick’s homemade English wedding

Smooching in front of the Rolls Royce, wedding cheesecake, a cheeky flower girl, and a hand-made gown of awesome are just a few of the personal touches on this grand English wedding. You’re going to flip when you see the venue, the purple shoes, and of course, the loving looks…

Laura & David’s DIY hippie geeky wedding

You know the saying, “They broke the mould when they made you” often applies to Offbeat Brides. DIY, tattoos, petals, suspenders, outdoors, love, this wedding has it all. Plus, a Batman garter, a lemon tree, and a sweet spread of mini pies. It’s not easy to sum it up in a few words, but it’s definitely authentic to their very own broken mould.
