Plenty of things!

For winter wonderland, what about a cake that has white detail over white fondant and the detail is actually a spider web? You have to look pretty close in order to see it, but it’s still glam.

I saw cufflinks on the boys that each had a comic superhero logo on it.

There are many people who “redesign” the traditional logos from comic boos to make them more vintage, more modern or whatever. Maybe it would be worth it to hire one of them to make your invitations so they look beautiful in “winter wonderland” theme, but also incorporate the comic book theme.

I wouldn’t worry too much about sticking to either “theme”. Have winter stuff. Have superhero stuff. It’ll be cute! Some personal favorite I’ve seen in other weddings are having each table as a different super hero.  Or super hero cake toppers. Incorporate super hero quotes. Or fonts.

I had a winter wedding. And the colors tended to blend well with others. I had white navy and pewter. Not sure of your colors. What about as PP said with the white cake and maybe super hero cake topper? That could be fun and not distracting. You could maybe have super hero table names too that might not too overwhelming. And I liked the cuff link idea.

I saw a cute idea on Pinterest! There was a little fondant Spiderman peeking out from under the wedding cake, holding the icing up like it as a curtain.  I thought that was sweet and unique!

Oh god I thought I was the only one having this issue lol!

I wanted the groomsmen to wear pink ties to match the bridesmaid dresses.. He wanted Ironman and Captain America cuff links and I freaked cause the colours don’t match (yeah.. I admit it. I’m slightly anal and a control freak lol)
In the end I realised that it doesn’t really matter if we have superhero stuff there.. It makes him happy and as long as we are married I will be happy 🙂

Maybe just suggest cuff links for the boys and other subtle aspects? I’m not a huge fan of themes personally, but just explain to him that you don’t want it to look like a kids birthday party.

And double check before you buy anything superhero related – Apparently Marvel and DC Comics are very different and the guys can get very sensitive about it lol!

Search Etsy.com, they have tons of cake toppers and garters.  Maybe you could put together superhero activity books for the young guests, and make a few extra for your husband’s comic-book-loving friends?

You could give the groomsmen superhero mugs, belt buckles, cufflinks, iphone cases, and/or a comic book of their favorite superhero.  You could name the tables after comic book couples (you could also do strange couples like how Batman once dated Lois Lane).  You could have your bridesmaids wear superhero earings.  You could pass out buttons to some of the guest that say things like “BAM” and “POW”.  You could wear a superhero garter belt.  If you guys decide to do the deed that night (some couples don’t) than you could change into a sexy superherione costume.  You could also do the sexy superherione idea during the honeymoon.  You could give have a superhero card box (like make it a small phone booth for superman).

Do you mean Iceman from Xmen? If so he’s Marvel. 

If you have any comic questions that you don’t want to ask your fiance you can ask me.  I grew up being read comic books for bed time stories.

@FutureMrsJohnston:  

Justice League socks would be cute for the groomsmen.

They could have their bouts in coordinating colors (Batman=yellow, dark purple (black), Superman=blue, red, etc., Aquaman= orange, green.)

If you wanted to, you could even incorporate something for yourself like a Wonderwoman pin on your bouquet.

I went to a wedding where the favors were home baked cookies in cellophane bags sealed with superhero stickers.  There was a lot of discussion among the geekier guests over who got which hero. 🙂

Are you having cake toppers? My Fiance and I are both big time Australian Rules footy fans (it’s how we met) and I thought it would be a bit tacky as a theme, so instead of the traditionally dressed bride and groom cake toppers, the groom will be in a Richmond jersey and the bride in a North Melbourne one. I will have to either paint them on or try to sew one myself (probably going with the former!).

@FutureMrsJohnston:  hmm you could be thinking of bobby drake aka iceman. He’s an x-men character which is marvel. There’s Dr.freeze from batman (DC) but he’s a bad guy (mostly, it’s complicated).
