Tacky or Awesome?
March 16, 2009
I’ve been told a few times that I’m too nice about everything and everyone on Rock n Roll Bride…now, considering I’m not such a heavenly creature in real life that may be true. However my argument is, why would I want to put someones wedding up here and slate it? That’s just mean and that not what the Rock n Roll Bride is about. I’m all about celebrating uniqueness and diversity in weddings!
However, I just discovered Tacky Weddings (via Wedding Skulls) and omg this girl is doing all the bitching for everyone…and I love it!
I personally would never want to slag off someones wedding – I’d just avoid it if I didn’t like it, but you should defiantly go check out this site, either for the hilarity or maybe even for some inspiration (seriously the Gothic and the Hello Kitty weddings are awesome! – I’ve featured one of those Hello Kitty weddings before!)
Therefore I’m just sharing the Hello Kitty stuff here, because I actually love it and it’s tacky brilliance…

Pheigi & Kiichiro’s Japanese/Scottish Fusion Wedding
January 19, 2011
Just wow. Like seriously, wow.
That's pretty much all I said for 5 minutes when Pheigi & Kiichiro's Japanese/Scottish fusion wedding hit my inbox this week. I almost don't know where to begin telling their epic wedding story, luckily for me the bride explained it a lot better than I ever could. The couple actually had two weddings - the first in Japan in July 2009 and the second (pictured) in Scotland in September 2010.
"My new Hubby and I actually got married in Japan (where we live) in 2009. We went to the city office and signed lots of forms to update my alien registration card, change his official address and get hitched. Which one of those forms was actually my marriage certificate I still don't know. I wore my mothers 1970's full length purple embroidered waistcoat over my purple cord flares and after we went to the crazy Japanese arcade on our street and had photos taken in the hello kitty photo booth. Much fun yet somewhat lacking in romance. We thus decided to come home to Scotland and have another celebration with my family, which we did in September. Planning my wedding from Japan was hard to say the least, especially as I wanted something a little different from the norm, and the whole thing became more of a disappointment as I spent hours trawling through ugly dresses, bland invites and over the top bling, until a good friend with similar problems directed me to your site. From then on I visited your site nearly every other day to remind myself that there were options other than white wedding package A, B or C and so in turn I am sending you my wedding in hope that it may help other brides in the UK realise the same and give them a wee break from the monotony of the wedding industry. I hope you like."
Retro 1960s Wedding with a Moroccan Vibe: Jo & Aki
December 5, 2012
Jo, a taxidermist, & Aki, a web designer, were married at Byzantium, a quirky bar and restaurant in Bristol. The Moroccan decor added an interesting touch to the celebration. The room was decorated with Moroccan lanterns, pipe cleaner animal and personalised cocktail stirrers. Some friends made them a guest list tree surrounded by candles and glass beads, flowers and fairy lights. Jo made some taxidermy through her company Death & Glory Taxidermy.
"I'm lucky enough to be surrounded by a lot of very talented people", explained the bride. "It’s very easy to get caught up with the idea of doing everything yourself but if you've got people around you that can (and want to) help, then let them! In the end our photographer (Noel was already a professional wedding photographer - handy!), invitation designer, guestbook tree makers, band, 'priest' and florist were all friends. It made the whole day much more personal and special and really helped us get the most out of our budget."

Coralee and Alex
January 27, 2014
When I saw Courtney and Cori's wedding for the first time I let out a little squeak of approval. Not only did these guys have a carnival themed wedding at a theme park but the bride used Hello Kitty (my favourite!) throughout her amazing outfit! Her shoes, nails and bouquet (!!) all had Hello Kitty on them. Is this the cutest thing ever or what?
