A wedding reading is a passage or a poem that is chosen by the couple to be read during their wedding ceremony… and unique wedding readings will add that personal touch to the ceremony, providing an opportunity for the couple to share their thoughts, feelings, and values with their guests.
An Offbeat Bride reader first brought this poem by author Tim Pratt to our attention way back in 2011. Almost 10 years later, we stumbled upon it and it’s still just so freaking perfect for those of you looking for a nerdy, science wedding reading that would feel great at a science-minded geeky wedding, or space or astronomy-themed wedding or even an atheist wedding…
This vintage Halloween wedding was loaded with gorgeous antique and 1920s-inspired details topped with a dollop of spooky chic Halloween details. We’re talking chic white pumpkins, matching cookies, and a fair dose of zombie fun.
Don’t miss all the killer musical selections and Downton Abbey-style bridesmaids dresses, too!
I fell down the rabbit hole of intricate and detailed wedding cakes and found some SPECTACULAR Halloween wedding cakes by the always amazing UK-based Black Cherry Cake Company. ‘Tis the season to make lists of all the Halloween movies to watch while crafting up wedding decor and favors, so be inspired by these cakes.
We’ve got Frankenweenie, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Walking Dead, Disney Halloween, Alien, Twin Peaks, Hannibal, and more. The mash-up cakes are particularly epic. Get ready to have your Halloween-loving mind blown…
Mary and Michael got married with a whimsical Nightmare before Christmas wedding theme. There were Jack Skellington cookies, balloons, and one of the best zombie-themed guest book prints we’ve seen. Oh, and just wait until you see the cake: Jack Skellington meets Batman! Don’t miss their pooch dressed up in tails, in addition to his actual tail.
Halloween couples: are you planning a wild stunt for your reception? Should it maybe involve the destruction of a zombie piñata? You’ve got a few months more to plan for your own Halloween wedding, so now’s the time to make or snag a zombie piñata (you can find some easily on Amazon!) and fill it with ghoulish candy (or adult drinkies!) and be ready to go nuts.
