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 Lego and Video Game Wedding for Nerds

Julie and Stephen met in a Bakery where Julie was working. They bonded over their mutual taste in music and video games and their dislike of cheese! “He’s the only other person I’ve ever met who doesn’t like cheese”, Julie chuckled, “that’s how we knew we were made for each other!”

They were married in July, in British Columbia, and had a wedding that reflected their mutual nerddom! “Our wedding had a nerdy, retro theme”, the bride continued. “We wanted it to reflect us and to not be traditional! We’re both big nerds, and love the video game Portal (and the 1950s environment it takes place in) so a lot of the décor was based on that.”

“We had a Companion Cube wedding cake that Stephen’s mum beautifully made and instead of a guestbook, guests signed vinyl records so we could frame and hang them on the wall later. Each table also had a vinyl record centrepiece, which I made. I created pixel versions of us for the invitations, and made table numbers out of Lego because we love those pixel-style
retro video games.”

Both being massive sci-fi geeks, a space theme was quickly decided on for Galit and Liron’s February wedding. The Jewish wedding took place in a huge greenhouse in Israel, and they DIYed nearly everything themselves.

“We love sci-fi, and so we decided to follow that in all the design aspects, and introduce to our guests that world”, wrote the bride. “We did all the design ourselves. For favours we gave each guest a small LED light connected to a small battery, the idea was that each guest is a star in our galaxy. We loved that everyone seemed to find a unique and creative way to hook it to themselves!”

Colourful Geeky Gamer Wedding: Sam & Stu

Sam and Stu met at college and bonded over a mutual love of video games, “primarily how to get the knights of the round summon in Final Fantasy 7!” Sam laughed. So needless to say, when it came to tying the knot, the very thing that brought them together was to be the theme of the wedding. ” We’re game geeks to the core! We wanted sleek quirky bright design with our gaming interest being the centre of it. We play tabletop RPG’s, board games and regular old video games.”

The day was held at aBode Chester, the modern setting was perfect for their day. “When you first delve into ‘wedding planning world’ its overwhelming”, she said. “All the old photos of your parents, the old traditions that have formed your opinion of weddings are shattered, especially when you find out about Pinterest (which is a blessing and curse). We didn’t want a ‘safe’ wedding. Plain white dress, veil, only roses bouquet with diamanté etc. It just wasn’t us. We had a few traditional elements to appease my new husband’s silver spoon needs (except chair covers! I won the battle on that one!) but everything else was free game to our artistic license.”

Tech and Geek Festival Wedding: Ali & Ben

Alexa Loy

Ali and Ben met while they were both working at PlayStation. This mutual love for all things techy and geeky was a recurring theme throughout their festival inspired wedding. Instead of using lots of paper they sent out digital invitations and had an online gift list, their seating plan was animated and they had pacman references everywhere. Each tier of their homemade wedding cake was a different PlayStation symbol, and they even the meme style table names!

“The best way to describe me is ‘Digital Hippy’ because while I am very much a child of the Earth, I also do love a good gadget!”, began Ali. “Ben is similar, and we had a problem picking a ‘theme’ because we like so many things! So it was just one big jumble of awesome. I suddenly thought about a festival theme, because Ben and I both love going to festivals and then everything fell into place. The thing I love most about festivals is that anything goes and that was perfect for our wedding. I’d never been to a wedding in a tent before, and with our beautiful individual bridesmaid dresses, face painter, dapper Groomsmen outfits, glow bands, giant sparklers, live music and fancy dress elements…I think we hit the festival vibe nicely on the head!”

Have I got something to end this week with a bang or what? Have you ever seen a wedding quite like this?! Themed weddings can get a bit of a bad rep, but when done well, and as an authentic representation of the couple, I don’t think there’s anything quite as fun. Who’s with me?

Christine & Charles met at a Star Trek convention at Altamonte Hilton, which they then chose as their wedding venue too. “Our wedding was a traditional Klingon wedding”, began the bride. “All of our guests used the opportunity to dress any way they wanted. Others may have thought this to be like a Halloween party but the celebration was a party of real friends to be as they wished. I made nearly everything myself including both of our outfits.”
