We might incorporate the cartoon Doug into little details since it has meaning for the both of us. Our cake topper will be geeky fer sure.

My best friend named her tables after video game characters. ๐Ÿ™‚

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: Firefly FTW! Awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

Our wedding will have many geeky elements!

I will be walking down the aisle to a piano version of the theme from Star Trek: Voyager. We will be walking out of the ceremony to either the throne room song from Star Wars, or Don’t You (Forget About Me) which is the song from the end of Breakfast Club, complete with raised hands in the air. Our bridal party will walk into the reception to the Ghostbusters theme. 

Other elements:

Star Wars cake topper:

Cufflinks for the groomsmen:

 

Shoe clips (I bought the red and black ones on the top) with a scene from the movie Nosferatu:

 

Posters of some of our favourite old movies for people to sign as our guestbook:

 

We’re also going to ordering toasting glasses with Firefly references on them – “Shiny” for me and “Big Damn Hero” for him ๐Ÿ™‚

I heart dorky weddings!!!!

@techie: I was going to order those cufflinks for Darling Husband but they kept going in and out of stock. I was on the waiting list for a while and like 2 days after I placed the order for his other cufflinks, I got the email that they were back in stock. If you haven’t ordered them yet, I would do it while they still have them. They’re constantly running out.

We had a few geeky aspects to our wedding…

DH’s cufflinks: He’s a Mac/iPhone/iPad developer so I ordered him mini iPhone cufflinks. He absolutely loved them!

Super Mario table numbers: These were 100% for Darling Husband. Our wedding was very much ME so we did the Mario table numbers to show off some of his personality. Each table had a different pixilated character. I actually ended up having to make about half of the characters myself (pixel by pixel in photoshop) since I couldn’t find the pixilated versions online. Some of the older crowd didn’t really get it but just about anyone 40 and under thought they were so cool!

We were pretty geeky. Darling Husband and the GMs walked down the aisle to the theme song from “Game of Thrones.” I walked to the theme from “Deep Space Nine.”

He wore a bow tie because of Doctor Who, and he had Tardis cufflinks. 

 

We also entered the reception with the Doctor Who theme song :).

We’re having a masquerade reception, which I think is pretty geeky.

We have discussed using the Imperial March as our entrance song to the reception.

The groom’s cake is going to be a massive d20 with little Dungeons & Dragons minis all around it.

I wrote this a while ago but it kinda sums up all the geeky things we will be having, sorry it is a little long but there is alot of geek in us!

Themes. Besides what is your dress going to look like this is the second question that comes out of peoples mouth holes when they find out I am getting married. After two seconds of me talking they realize they don’t want to talk about it any more. Now I don’t have a terrible theme, but most people don’t know much about old school video games, comic books, or Scott Pilgrim (the book and the movie). However they mean everything to us. Scott Pilgrim was a movie that my fiance introduced to me after finding how much of a geek I was and it is one our fave movies we watch together, we even had to kinda “defeat” some evil exes in the start of the relationship. Not only did we both grow up with Super Mario and Zelda, but we spend a lot of time at home placing Mario Cart and Super Smash Brothers together at home. I remember one of the first nights in our first place he was playing Zelda: Ocarina of Time while I was hand sewing our Halloween/Cosplay costumes of Old Gregg and The Funk, and thinking to my self how perfect this picture is. So that is why we decided if we would be having a party for us, might as well make it us, the geeky, video playing, comic book reading us.

Now the second part is based on 500 Day of Summer, our other movie that we love. Some people might criticized that they break up in the end and how it is a sad movie, but we don’t see it like that. It a movie about how real life is. And how their relationship was in the beginning, all fun and laughs, that is us. The only difference is I did not run when I got scared. I won’t lie, normally I run like hell when I get nervous or stuck to far into a relationship, but just how Summer knew about the guy in the cafe, I knew about Kyle and I stayed. Best choice of my life too! Besides all the mushy meanings, Hall and Oates “You Make My Dream Come True” has been one of our theme songs since Kyle flipped out in my friends car when he heard it on the radio and sang it like a pre-teen girl. The style of the movie is what we are going for though, the urban yet vintage look. Let me tell ya, Kyle can rock a vest like no tomorrow and I actually do pin up vintage modeling on the side, so it just fit. There will be lots of twinkling lights and paper cranes( out of comic books to tie in Scott Pilgrim) and hopefully on a roof top some where. Oh yeah and karaoke!

 
There will be legos! I grew up on them and one day when I have kids they will too. Story behind the legos is one day Kyle and I took a stroll down the street and after he grabbed my hand, he stopped looked at it and said “We fit together like we were two legos.” I swooned and blushed for a long time, till I found out it was from an LMFAO song “La, La, La”  we had been listening to for a while now (He always thought of me when he heard that song and “Little Hipster Girl”). But it was true he is my lego. We even got almost matching tattoos on our year anniversary, mine is a painting of Audrey Kawasaki’s “My Dishonest Heart” but instead of a real heart I have a lego heart with a piece missing and he has the missing lego piece on his chest above his heart. When we sleep the tattoos touch, so sappy I know! We will ave little lego people in the center pieces and I am going to construct a lego poster as our guest book. Also I am working on getting Lego heart temp tattoos made to put in the program.
 
To kinda pull everything together we wanted to narrow down our color choice we will have, so we didn’t think to hard about it. Kyle’s fave color is light blue, mine is yellow. Add in some light grey and dark brown for accents and there you go! I know light blue and yellow don’t really go with November, but we are in South Florida. It will still be looking like summer till December or even January.

 Now I am not saying there won’t be other references in the wedding, the paper swans on the gift boxes are after Prison Break since it was the first show we watched in full, His grooms cake is based off of Dexter’s breakfast open credited (Blue Moon cake with Blood Orange filling and maybe a little sprinkled candy bacon on top with the art work),  a lot of binary coding since we both use to do graphic design and web site coding, and Admiral Snackbar’s Jello Shot bar that I will be making instead of a sweet table. But I am super excited every time I start a project for our wedding because I know it will show us and it will be worth it. Plus the Smile on his face when he sees the final product is heart warming.

My groom and I are both cosplayers (we met at a Comic Convention in 2006). Since we’ve been dating we started doing couples cosplay (Green Arrow & Speedy, Spock & Uhura, Team Rocket to name a few).

Last year his mom made me a Princess Tiana costume, and he’s working on a Naveen costume right now.

When it came to wedding themes, we thought about doing something geeky, but still keeping it elegant and wedding-like. So we decided on doing a Princess and the Frog theme, because the characters are so us, it’s a love story, and the characters actually get married! (Plus I freaking love Disney, and he proposed at Disney World, it’s perfect).

We’re using Tiana and Naveen figures as cake toppers.

We’re giving frog shaped wedding favors

I made water lily center pieces

We’re also getting married at a castle venue (to go with the fairytale theme), using mardi gras colors for the wedding since the movie takes place in New Orleans, and my groom is going to wear a tan suit similar to what Naveen wears in the movie. Our guest book, I want to make to look like a story book.

I need to come up with a cool idea for our cardbox.

@GreenEyedMoon:  Can I ask what your cake is made of? I’m designing a DnD cake for my groom and I am actually looking at inspiration photos now; I’m not sure if a D20 would be too difficult for my baker to pull off or not.
