Aussie-American wedding as seen on @offbeatbride #rustic #wedding

The ’80s and homebrew meet at this Aussie-American rustic wedding

’80s rock, a rad barn venue, TONS of DIYed details, and so much homebrew. It’s a gorgeously wild ride of a wedding and we’re here to share it. Don’t miss the travel signs, the bride’s lace dress, the rustic decor, the “mad love” ring book, and the awesomely mismatched champagne-colored dressed wedding party.

Abbie & Justin’s technicolor karaoke wedding

This wedding has paper flowers, rainbow cupcakes, a silver dress by Miss Brache’s, a taco truck reception, and a super crafty way to make seating a cinch. And when the bride sang Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love to You,” all fell under her spell.

Cristin & Frank’s Nightmare Before Christmas wedding

An intricate headpiece, a lush brooch bouquet, a Renaissance-style purple and black dress, and some Nightmare Before Christmas details — it’s a wedding any Tim Burton fan would love. With lots of DIY and a casual vibe, everyone seemed right at home. Plus, don’t miss the canine ring bearer in a shmancy top hat!

Alexa & Wale’s vibrant Nigerian engagement and minimalist Unitarian nerdfest

You may recognize this pair from Alexa’s Nigerian engagement ceremony bridentity crisis, and we just had to see how it all turned out. It’s a two-ceremony mega-mash of Nigerian and American culture including handmade geles (Nigerian head wraps), geeky details, a sweet candle ceremony, and some flubbed vows that are too funny to miss.

Megan & Chris’ summer carnival wedding with rockabilly style

This pair had a small wedding with BIG personality: a carnival-themed wedding with retro rockabilly style. There are lots of DIY projects to ogle, including the bride’s brooch bouquet, crochet bouquets, button bouquets (so much bouquet love!), a colorful candy buffet, and circus-style banners. Step right up and feast your eyes on the spectacle!

A steampunk soiree with an amazingly detailed cake

Jenny from Moondance Photography may have been new to steampunk before photographing this wedding, but she got schooled! Victorian science fiction meets cyber punk is not something to be forgotten once you’ve experienced it. There were gears on the shoes and in the boutinnieres, top hats, vintage decor, and a steampunk cake with more details than you can imagine.
