Darling Husband is a chemical engineer, so we gave out loose tea in test tubes as our favors ๐Ÿ™‚

@Laurenplusalex:  Surprised What will happen to your cats when you move in together?

Darling Husband is slightly allergic to our cats as well. I’m mean… I make him live with it!

@Laurenplusalex:  OK, that’s not so bad. I was imagining them being given away!

@Laurenplusalex:  Darling Husband says he is actively jealous of mine, because he suspects I love them more than him. It isn’t true, of course… but it’s a close thing!

I especially love my boy cat. He is the other man in our relationship… or ex-man, seeing as he now lacks boy parts, LOL!

We’re having a “nerdy” wedding, it’s “Us” themed so pretty much video games and fun ๐Ÿ™‚ Some of these maybe a little “over the top” or not very chic but i’ll list out what we’re doing :
 
Ceremony:
– 8bit sunglasses for everyone 
– Starcraft 2 terran theme song for groom’s walk
– Game of thones theme for recessional 
– Readings (read from the actual books):

              * Union by Robert Fulghum
              * Your Personal Penguin by Sandra Boynton        
– Book/paper flower bouquets
– Bridal party is wearing custom Converse high tops (girls are in teal/gray. boys are in orange/gray)

– Tiny origami stars rather than confetti 
– 2 different custom viewmasters per table from Image3D.com (1 of baby pictures, 1 of dating pictures)

We had nerdy elements! We put references in our vows that were geeky and used music from geeky shows/movies I like for some of our important songs.

Also, the groomsmen all had nerdy cufflinks:

And Darling Husband drew me a comic book of our relationship as one of my gifts:

And because my Darling Husband is a huge Star Wars geek, 

 

My Star Wars garter:

Our cake toppers:

And the “special guest” I surprised my Darling Husband with at our reception:

Oh, and our nerdy themed guest book:

love all the inspiration – we’re having a few geeky touches, mainly Doctor Who/TARDIS related, but a few other things as well.

We are going to have a few nods to DC comics & I get to marry my superman. ๐Ÿ˜‰ the groomsmen are picking their own superhero & have matching cuff links, socks, t-shirts. My moh is a huge dr who fan so I’m going to incoropate a tadis pin in her corsage.
