Star Trek & Sci Fi Inspired Geekfest

Lilac and Avi truly embraced their inner geek for the November wedding in Israel. Hosted on November 24th (Evolution day and also exactly a year to the day after they got engaged), they chose to include as many of their famdoms as they possibly could in their wedding. 100 cool point to anyone who can spot them all!

Both designers, they wanted the day to play homage to the bride’s love of sci-fi and the groom’s love of fantasy. “We both like either side of the geeky coin”, Lilac explained, “Avi is a fantasy fan, I’m a sci-fi nerd, and we both like science, space and exploration. So, we took all of these small parts of our whole geeky world (TV shows, movies, cartoons, games, books…) and spread them around the wedding in our outfits, in the decorations and our invitations.”

A Homemade Rainbow Explosion Wedding with Pokemon, Dominos & Nerf Guns!

Becca and David knew that when it came to planning their wedding, they wanted something completely different. “Having the same wedding that I’ve been to 10 times already is my idea of a nightmare,” said the bride. “We just wanted a super fun day full of high energy and all the things we love.” Who could be melancholy with so much colour around them?!

The couple were actually already married, just the two of them and best man in a Pikachu costume (of course) in a little chapel in Vegas, so their home September wedding was a chance to celebrate with all their friends and family. They had a £13,000 budget so undertook a lot of DIY to bring their dreams to life. “The hardest part was trying to find somewhere to put a bunch of teepees and power and toilets that didn’t want to charge £2k for the privilege!” said Becca.

A Social Distancing Sims Wedding

Ya know, we may not be able to be together in the same physical location right now, but that doesn’t mean the wedding industry stops. I’m getting so excited when I see vendors using this unprecedented down time to get creative so hats off and standing ovations to Lisa and Neil of Him and Her Wedding Photography for this out-of-the-box thinking!

With no weddings to photograph right now, they wanted to keep their creativity going, and so decided to create a Sims wedding for them to ‘photograph’ at home. They even made up a wedding story for their Sims, Emily and Luke.

Side note: Has anyone been following us for long enough to remember this Barbie and Ken wedding from 2011!? To this day, it’s still one of our most viewed articles of all time!

“Emily and Luke were married at Magnolia Blossom Park on Saturday 4th April 2020. Their wedding budget was §100,000 simoleans. Emily wore an off white, slightly green wedding dress she picked out whilst she had a fashion influencer career (though the slightly green wedding dress thing never took off). Luke wore a traditional wedding suit but after he went for a swim in the evening, he changed into a cardigan. We’re not sure why he did this.”

Geeky, Black & Purple Wedding with Star Wars and Dr Who

Monica and Wayne wanted their May 4th 2019 wedding to be a day that reflected them. “We don’t care for white dresses or old traditions. We are big fans of Doctor Who and Star Wars and wanted out wedding day to reflect who we are.”

Held at Forest Grove in Queensland, Australia, the couple had a $30,000AUD budget to bring their dream to life. Their biggest expense was their photographer “because you can’t be cheap with memories” the bride said. They saved money by DIYing elements such as the seating chart, table numbers and stationery.

Geeky & Eclectic Feminist Wedding

Self-confessed geeky feminists, Bunty and Sophie wanted a low key, low cost wedding that was full of love and personal details. “We’re both quite geeky so we wanted to have that reflected in the style of the day”, Bunty explained. “We tried to incorporate science, plants, literature and my love of everything gold! We used Pinterest a lot to try budget ideas and of course Rock n Roll Bride!! We spent less than £5000 on the whole affair and we did everything ourselves with help from family and friends.”

Bunty found her Ronald Joyce dress second-hand on eBay for just £120 and Sophie’s suit came fro Ted Baker, the bridesmaids wore various outfits from high street stores. The cake was homemade by Sophie and they did their own invitations. They also didn’t have a band or DJ, opting for a DIY Spotify playlist, and they served Indian food instead of fancy catering.

A Spanish Superhero Themed Wedding with a Belfast Music Hall Reception

Jamie and Michael had two very different wedding celebrations –  a small family-focused event in the scorching heat in Malaga and a second a few weeks later, for all the rest of their friends and family back home in Belfast… in the rain! The two events couldn’t be more different (the bride even changed her hair colour between the two!) but both felt completely right for them. After all, isn’t that what being a Rock n Roll bride is all about?

“We wanted our wedding to include the everyone and everything we love and to show our personalities, we didn’t see the point in changing ourselves or pretending to be something we weren’t, just for one day”, began the bride. “We both always knew we wanted to get married abroad but hadn’t decided where. After a bit of research, we fell in love with Cortijo Rosa Blanca. I hated the thought of a white wedding, I was keen to have lots of colour in our day. I also hate the smell of fresh flowers, they make me sneeze! We also knew we wanted to include superheroes, we both love Marvel and DC and have seen every single superhero movie.”
