5 Very Geeky Wedding Ideas

Just because you’re getting married, doesn’t mean you have to tone down your personality and conform to society’s view of what a traditional wedding should look like. After all, who actually likes the stale presentation of the average wedding? They’re all so predictable and cookie-cutter-like in nature. If you want to have fun on your wedding day, make it a geeky time.

Try These Five Geek-Inspired Ideas

Your wedding should be a reflection of you and your significant other. There’s no need to live up to anyone else’s expectations. Pick and choose elements that are meaningful to you – in the end, that’s what matters.

Here are some geeky ideas we have a feeling you’re going to really like:

Wear Costumes During the Wedding Shoot

Your wedding shoot should definitely contain some classic photos of you and your mate, but have some fun with the rest of them. Slip into your favorite costumes and utilize the skills of your photographer. From Super Mario and Princess Peach to Peter Parker and Mary Jane, the possibilities are endless. If you’re really creative, you can even get your wedding party to dress up with you. What a fun way to remember your special day when you look back at your wedding album in 10 or 15 years!

Design Dual Cakes With Video Game Characters

Wedding cakes are expensive. It doesn’t matter what you do, you’re going to shell out some serious money. So, why not make it a wedding cake that you’ll actually remember? Better yet, go ahead and make two cakes – one for the bride and one for the groom. This gives you each an opportunity to design your own.

From Doctor Who and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Star Wars and The Walking Dead, your imagination is your only limiting factor.

Have the Band Play Some Favorite Theme Songs

When people attend a wedding, there are songs they expect to hear. There are the traditional hits, the dance songs, and a few timely hits sprinkled in. But do you really want your playlist to be the same playlist that was performed last weekend?

Mix things up by asking your band to play your favorite video game theme songs. From Final Fantasy and the Legend of Zelda to Halo and Super Mario Bros, there are a lot of classics out there that can really get your guests excited. You’ll need a band that’s flexible enough to play a wide variety of music, though. So carefully select based on this criteria.

Get Creative With Your Invitations

Wedding invitations are something that very few people mess with. They’re almost always white, boring, and expensive. Well, it’s time to shun this tradition and go with something a little lighter and more fun. Check out these ideas for inspiration.

Choose Adorable Rings

Traditional gold bands and halo-style wedding rings are B-O-R-I-N-G. You need something slightly more “adorkable.” The good news is that you have plenty of options to choose from. Whether you want an R2D2 inspired diamond ring, Batman band, or Lord of the Rings bling, you can find just about anything. Best part of all? Nobody will every come up to you and say, “Oh, I have that exact same ring!”

Nobody Likes a Boring Wedding

The average person goes to dozens of weddings in their lifetime. How many of those weddings will they actually remember? Probably only a few. Well, if you want your wedding to be one that’s remembered for years to come, then you need to do something unique. Playing the traditional wedding processional is fine, but do you really want your wedding to be like every other event? Shake things up and let your geek shine through.
