Jacqueline and William’s moon and stars-themed wedding sent us into the galaxy when we saw it. But their meet-cute story is on a whole other level. Just wait until you hear how her galaxy dress went from conversation starter to fab wedding garb. Hear the story straight from this gorgeous bride (the owner of Pinup Pixie Boutique, the first black-owned pinup boutique in Louisiana, by the way!).
Will and Emily’s wedding combined traditional Jewish elements with fun, personalized nods to the couple. Emily made the escort cards herself (paper flowers!) and other fun touches included a candy buffet with their favorite treats and the cake topper (wedding versions of their favorite Mario Kart characters!).
Jordan and Conor had anautumnal woodland outdoor ceremony at The Dreys wedding venue in Kent. Once the ceremony was over, guests walked through the woods to an open field where a tent and rustic tin bar were all set up and ready for the party. There were pumpkins, smoke grenades, Disney memorabilia, and an Irish band, just to name a few of the things that Jordan and Conor included to make the day personal to them.
A Neo-Soul inspired wedding shoot? YES PLEASE. Hints of Maxwell and Erykah Badu, with decor that goes earthy, moody, and a bit gritty…
Offbeat Bride’s Executive Editor got married! Catherine and her husband Steven share a ton of geeky and pop culture interests so it made sense to infuse fun references, soundtrack themes, and fandom homages into their whimsical, pop culture-themed wedding in Chicago. It was held at a West Loop venue with a feast, an ice cream cart, a Hogwarts Great Hall photo booth, and dancing awkwardly into the night.
Don’t miss the bride’s custom dyed ombre unicorn dress!
One element of my wedding with which I was fairly obsessed was finding a fun dress. I’m not a white gown kinda gal, so I was on the hunt for something colorful. I decided to test the waters in customizing a dress online. There are lots of stores that do that theses days, but I knew I wanted something from an independent seller who could really personalize the look itself. I’m already an avid Etsy window shopper, so it was all just a matter of narrowing down the search to a reputable designer who made dresses I liked. Easier said than done? Actually, it was pretty easy…
