Opposuits Make Wacky Suits for Men & Women… and Their Christmas Range is Here!

One of the most exciting parts of getting engaged (for me anyway!) was finally being able to look at wedding dresses and think about what I might wear. Call me shallow if you like, but the day after our engagement I was on the Internet browsing wedding dress websites at work!

Now this might be a cliché, but I don’t think it’s really the same for the boys. That’s not to say they don’t care about what they’re going to get married in – in fact I think most men care very much – but even in 2018 it is really difficult to find anything remotely unique, quirky or fun for them out on their bodies. I mean, sure, he can pick a snazzy tie, go for a coloured shirt or suit or ditch tradition entirely and wear whatever he feels fabulous in, but for the most part, the options for men are still pretty limited.

Halloween Meets Haunted Mansion Wedding at Epcot!

Lisa and John-Paul got married in front of a beautiful koi pond in Japan – that is, the Japanese Pavilion at Epcot, Walt Disney World! Originally from the UK but living in Sydney, they planned an elegant Halloween themed wedding, taking inspiration from the Haunted Mansion. I’m not sure it gets any better than a Halloween wedding at the Happiest Place on Earth! Who’s with me!?

“I was keen to stay away from cheesy Halloween and so black lace was a large inspiration,” Lisa explains. “Our ceremony was overlooking the koi pond in the Japan Pavilion which is really pretty. I’d loved this koi pond since my first trip to Disney when I was 14, but never expected to get married there! I’d envisaged pumpkins covered in black lace, gothic lanterns and red rose petals (it was unusually windy on the day though so a few blew away). The service by Rev Kev was lovely, and we had a sand ceremony using a Haunted Mansion shadow box created especially for us by Practically Perfect Crafts.”

Colourful, Outdoorsy Gin-filled Tipi Wedding

When the bride runs a studio called Hello Sunshine, you might get the inkling that the wedding is going to be a beautifully sunny occasion. Well, Jo and Will’s wedding day definitely delivered (as did the British summertime!) Their tipi wedding was a divine colourful, outdoorsy, gin-filled celebration. We’re talking more gorgeous DIYs than you can shake a stick at and five food trucks. My kind of party…

There was no real theme other than colour, fun and food, but it’s fair to say Jo and Will stayed totally true to themselves throughout. “From the choice to ignore sit down meals in favour of pick ‘n’ mix food vans and snacks, to randomly buying and making fun looking props and only having our immediate family forming our bridal parties, we did US,” Jo says. “We weren’t reinventing the wedding wheel by any means but everything we chose to do/buy/make for our day was 100% down to what we felt happy with and wanted to do.”

Emotional English Garden Wedding (With a Special Visit to Grandma)

Elissa and Joey’s English garden wedding is a totally joyous, tear-jerker affair. And you know us, we’re not about the clickbait life – it was genuinely a deeply emotional collaborative effort using as many beautiful homemade elements as possible. With that in mind, here’s their theme, explained better than I ever could:

“When my Grandma became poorly we had to help her sort through her accounts and paperwork,” Elissa recalls. “It was a total filing catastrophe but in amongst the reams of paper and notes she had catalogued and treasured so much ‘stuff’ to do with us all – receipts from long forgotten occasions carefully annotated, preserved flowers, notes of our minor achievements to the extent she’d created a huge archive of all of our lives. It was a real reminder of just how important we all are to her, and her love of family and ability to see the significance in tiny things in when times are hard was our major inspiration.”

With her grandma’s health declining, Elissa and Joey had a registry office ceremony and a mini-reception in her care home the day before their garden wedding. “I made my bouquet from flowers from her garden and used some of her ornaments to decorate the registry office, whilst her carers did her hair and make up and helped her decorate a cake for me as she always wanted to bake my wedding cake,” she says. Told you it was a beautiful, raw, honest tearjerker, didn’t I?

Homemade Farm Wedding with a Black Wedding Dress

Maeg and Rob describe themselves as ‘non-traditional humans’, which I think is a lovely intro to their wedding, held on their own farm in Washington. Their total budget was $5000.

“We drew our inspiration from our farm and the years that we have spent here,” Maeg explains. “Instead of putting our money into a venue we’d only use for a couple of hours, we opted to put money back into the property where we’ll spend the rest of our lives.”

It was a truly personal affair, with only 45 guests. Their close friend became ordained just so he could be the officiant, and Maeg’s nine-year-old son escorted her down the aisle. One of her dogs also ended up walking her down the aisle too! “Our matted old rescue farm dog wouldn’t leave my side all day. We have four dogs and planned to contain them during the event, but this little guy lost his shit when we tried to put him inside so he ended up in our photos and escorting me for the evening!”
