Most Awesome Wedding Themes That Will Blow Your Mind
Who said planning your wedding day was going to be easy? Your big day is going to be perfect anyways, but preparing for it can be really stressful as there are so many details you need to take into consideration: the perfect venue, the perfect color scheme that fits your venue, your partner’s desires and personality and so, so many others.
While most of the brides and grooms out there decide to go for a traditional, classic and elegant theme on their wedding day, there are some who dare go over the borders of normal, set their imagination free and approach the most awesome, geeky and unique themes inspired by their favorite movie, video game or book character. From Star Wars and superheroes to princesses, these weddings will surprise you for sure.
Puppet Show – Wedding
Tammy Caplan and Joe Gold wanted to make their wedding day really special and amuse their guests big time. This awesome couple sure surprised anyone present at their wedding when the ceremony was officiated by no other than the Rabbi puppet! The bride and the groom kept the puppet show secret to everyone, even to their closest friends. It is needless to say that the show “Love boat” put into the scene by the L.A. Puppet school puppeteers, with all its lovely characters – the Rabbi, the Captain and the ring “bear” were a delight.
Star Wars Wedding
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, this lovely Los Angeles couple, Jenifer and Joshua, perfectly included Star Wars elements in their classic and tasteful wedding reception. You will be surprised to find out that not the groom, but the bride was the true geek of the story. She came up with the idea, as her “obsession” runs deep, she even makes a living from posting videos on YouTube about all kinds of Star Wars details. Her family and friends turned out to be really supportive. The maids of honor had the same hair style as Princess Lea and the bride’s father was dressed as Darth Vader.
These geeky game lovers, Matt and Asia met through their church, but they fell in love with each other while playing Minecraft. They have created their own world in the digital environment. Matt even proposed to Asia up on stage at MineCon with the help of the game creators, so it was no surprise when they decided to include elements from the game on their wedding day. The lovely couple gathered all their friends, also passionate about Minecraft, and they have made together all the decorations (pixel trees and characters made from cardboard boxes) for their wedding reception. They managed to put together an incredible party which really reflected their love for the game and for each other.
Harry Potter Wedding
You will not believe how popular this theme is! The Harry Potter books and movies were a real trend a few years ago, but they were so good that they will never be forgotten and every generation will fall in love with them over and over again. Cassie and Lewis from Great Britain decided to go for a Harry Potter themed wedding after they got engaged at the Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a year prior to the big event. The reception was held at the Midland Hotel in Manchester, the “Order of Phoenix” book was included in the wedding ceremony, and each guest received a hand-made wand. The bride and the groom had really interesting accessories as well: Hogwarts garter, mismatched House heels, and the flower bouquet was made from pieces of paper from Harry Potter books. That was indeed a magical wedding!
Debra Mundy and Mervin Rider decided to tie the knot in an original way, after being together for 23 years. Their wedding day became their own fairytale, as they impersonated two of the most adored characters: Princes Fiona and the adorable ogre, Shrek. Both of them put on the green makeup and the beautiful costumes and they were ready to say “I do”. The bride arrived at the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage. 40 guests attended their wedding and they were also dressed as characters from the animated movie. The bride and the groom decided to go for this specific theme because it was their kid’s favorite movie.
Tom and Megan lived their childhood dream through their wedding. They always said that they plan to conquer the world together. That, and their shared loved for superheroes, lead to an awesome wedding theme. Combining the new and the old, they organized a vintage superhero wedding. They had superheroes costumed invites, super-wedding capes for the entire bridal party and the traditional cake was replaced with an ice cream truck. That sounds like lots of fun!
