Nerdy Pop Culture Wedding in Las Vegas

Launa and Josh wanted an October wedding in Las Vegas with alternative details that referenced their favourite games, movies and TV shows. The bride chose a red sequin 50s inspired dress from FairyGothMother with matching Converse and carried a paper flower bouquet made by Paper Bouquets from Harry Potter pages to represent her, comic pages to represent Josh and Magic the Gathering cards to represent them together.

“We wanted a blend of vintage meets classic Vegas for our wedding and to add our own nerdy touches”, Launa said. “I had four bridesmaids all in a colour from each Hogwarts house, we had a reading of Joey’s speech from Monica and Chandler’s wedding and a poem about aliens called The Day the Saucers Came by Neil Gaiman. Our vows were the vows from the Corpse Bride with a Game of Thrones reference thrown in at the end and we did a candle lighting of a Jack and Sally candle from Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Ben and Paige knew they wanted to go somewhere tropical for their March wedding, but aren’t really beach-wedding types. “We do enjoy hiking though, “ the bride told us, “so we settled on a trip to St John in the Virgin Islands as we knew we’d get what we wanted from there.

Mike and Amy made a trip to Palm Springs a few years before they got engaged, and fell in love with it the mid-century architecture, the colours and the heat. They were pretty certain that they wanted to get married there, so once they committed to that, they leaned on that style to guide them!

“Initially when we were going over their style/theme it seemed very classic to me,” the bride explained, “but as we tried to find thing it became clear that our style/colour palette was not what most people were going for.” Once they hired their wedding planner, things began to fall into place. “Trust the professionals,” Amy advises, “as they live and breathe for weddings, more likely than not they will have a simple answer, or ideas that will help you make a decision on something that has been slowing you down!”
