Halloween Themed Wedding with Sword Swallowers, Drag Acts and A Costume Contest Reception!

The inspiration behind Kris and Landon’s big day was the fact that Kris has never been to a Halloween party… no, really! “It’s the best holiday because your only obligation is to dress like an ass and then get candy for it. So we said screw it and threw a Halloween party,… but you know, just got married in the beginning.” Kris explained.

Costume party aside, the vibe they wanted was ‘dinner and a show’… with some good old fashioned freaky Halloween fun! They took their theme and ran with it. As entertainment, they had a sideshow act perform sword swallowing, walking on glass and a bed of nails act while their guests dined. Kris’ brother had recently started competing in drag competitions and agreed to do a number after dinner. It was followed by a costume contest, which their friends and family embraced wholeheartedly.

Intimate Las Vegas Wedding with a Black Dress & Neon Green Veil!

Christine and Eddie’s elopement is like a lot of the Vegas weddings we feature in so much as they had a quickie quickie chapel ceremony and spent the afternoon waltzing around the city taking fabulous photos. The thing that really made their day stand out to us though was Christine’s INCREDIBLE one-of-a-kind outfit, it’s not every day we see a bride rocking a (home made!) neon green veil!

They were married in August at A Little White Wedding Chapel. “The idea for our wedding was for it to be Vegas, fun and intimate”, said the bride. “We honestly did not use much for inspiration, we wanted to just do our own thing and do it in a way that we would love and remember. We wanted to keep it about us and just have fun with it.”

“I definitely think our outfits were very unique. They are not something that a bride and groom normally wear. I always loved the idea of having a black wedding dress and my green veil was  just green tulle I bought and put in with bobby pins! Eddie’s gold suit went perfect with my black dress and the wedding location. I also had a necklace made that says ‘Edine’, which is the couple name we gave ourselves.”

Breathtaking Enchanted Forest Themed Wedding with Skulls, Dinosaurs & Apothecary Vibes

You are going to LOVE this wedding, we just know it! Just you wait til you get a load of all the decorations…!

The inspiration for the styling of Hollie and Dan’s big day all stemmed from Hollie’s My Big Day Bridal dress. “I’ve always been a bit of a goth girl at heart,” Hollie explained, “so I wanted our day to feel dark and dramatic but still be romantic and beautiful.”

The dress in question was a beautiful black tulle and floral embroidered overlay gown. Hollie paired it with a jewelled headpiece, laser cut shoes and a custom printed jacket by Princess Crocodile Designs, who also made a mini version for the flower girl!

Grungy Las Vegas Dive Bar Wedding with the Bride in Black

Prepare thyself, because this may just be the ultimate Rock n Roll Bride wedding! A quickie Vegas ceremony, the bride rocking her baby pink quiff with a striking black wedding dress and a raucous after party that went on all night long! Oh yes, there is so much to love about this epic celebration (even if someone did break their leg in the process – oops!)

Claire and Joe were married in October. After their Little White Chapel ceremony they headed to The Peppermill for food and ReBar (a antique bar where everything is for sale!) for all the partying. After a few hours they then went and got tattoos done followed by karaoke at Dinos, the last neighbourhood bar in Vegas!

“Our wedding was a Las Vegas Rock n Roll grunge dive bar tour!” began the bride. “I have always wanted to get married in Vegas and to wear a black Vera Wang dress. The vibe of the wedding had the feeling of an elopement, yet we had 40 friends and family there. It wasn’t a very traditional wedding but very true to us. We had a party bus that transported everyone from place to place on the day – we even got a group photo at the Las Vegas sign.”

Gothic, Halloween & Harry Potter Themed Wedding in a Castle!

Marc and Chloe have always been interested in gothic style and an alternative lifestyle – meeting at a metal gig in 2012 – so it was never a question that they’d have anything other than a wedding that reflected their true selves!

Their venue, an actual real-life castle, was the perfect setting for their gothic and Halloween inspired day. Hedingham Castle in Essex is a nine-hundred year old Norman castle, full of medieval splendour. They had their ceremony within the castle itself, before moving to a marquee for their reception.

Lovecats: A Crazy Cat Themed Wedding

There was one overriding theme for George and Jordanna’s big day – you’ve got three guesses for what it could possibly be!

“We were inspired by reading the blogs of other couples on Rock n Roll Bride and how they did exactly what they wanted,” explained Jordanna. “We wanted our day to reflect our love for each other, and our other true loves; our cats Conker and Boots! However it was important to us for it not to be tacky; we wanted it to be in a sophisticated and at times, humorous way.”

They paired an elegant, wintery colour scheme of red, burgundy and black with loads of nods to their favourite felines; from Jordanna’s Markus Lupfer cat print sandals and her handmade cat ear headband, to her cat embroidered veil (!) and cat pins in the buttonholes and bouquets. George rocked socks personalised with photos of their cats, and even the bridesmaid dresses were from a website called Pretty Kitty Fashion!
