I immediately thought of Mr. Freeze from batman and Frozone from the Inclredibles.

I did a google search and found this website listing Captain Cold, Mr. Freeze, Ice (girl affiliated with the Justice League!, Icicle, Killer Frost (sexy girl who sucks warmth from people), Ice Maiden, Polar Boy, The Cryonic Man, Minister Blizzard, and The Snowman:

Since there are two of you getting married, you should both have things you like at the wedding.  So don’t think of the superhero stuff messing with “your” theme…think of it as you both have ideas for the wedding that you want to incorporate.

@FutureMrsJohnston:  Hmmm.. I hate to take sides, but I think the super hero theme is a winner. ๐Ÿ˜€

 

I’m not exactly sure how you could combine them, though. It might depend on what kind of superheros he’s into. You could maybe introduce some subtleties that would get him his fix without being obviously copyrighted. I think Bruce Wayne could show up at any winter event (wedding included) with his dashing self and high class style. Superman would have his costume on under his suite. ๐Ÿ˜€ As for Spiderman… um…. sparkly webs? Somewhere? I dunno. lol.

I didn’t really have a theme to my wedding, but bought DH a set of TARDIS cuff links because we’re both Doctor Who nerds.

If I were you, I’d do the groom’s cake, these socks, and hit up Etsy for superhero cuff links.  I don’t think I’d do superhero decor.

@FutureMrsJohnston:  We didnt do  a theme but we are doing the shirts under the tuxes for pics. Fiance is actually stoked about it and so happy I saw it on pinterest and suggested it. 22 days ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a lot of fun looking up some of this stuff.  You already have a couple of great ideas with the superhero shirts under the suits and comic book superhero groom’s cake.  PPs also added some great inspirations as well (I love the Spiderman stuck under the cake!)

I thought I’d just include links and images to a bunch of various ideas just to provide further inspiration.

Poptastic Bride.  Obviously you mentioned this one already.  However I thought I’d add examples of the fun wedding photos you could have as a result!

 

Offbeat Bride.  Create your own comic book-esque wedding photos!  I love the beard exclamation.

 

Pinterest.  I gotta admit, this is a pretty sweet photo.  If you have a spidey fan for your Fiance, then this may be a great photo(shop?) op to consider.

 

Bobblegram.  Add a personalized super hero twist to your cake!  The company has a few different cake topper options for under $200.  If your budget allows, it may make a great souvenior of the day!

 

Pinterest.  Some pretty snazzy superhero cuff links.

 

Green Wedding Shoes.  Lots of cute stuff here.  Mostly recommending b/c you can have some photos that are as simple as you and your Fiance flipping through his favorite comic books together.

 

Mentalfloss.  Technically this is from a “15 Geeky Wedding Invitations article”, but if it’s something you’re interested in then a custom comic book cover could even be displayed at the wedding!  The link included to the Etsy seller in the article is broken, but I found other sellers by searching “custom comic book cover” at Etsy.  Generally the price range is $50 – $250 that I found, but if it’s your kinda thing it’ll be great artwork to keep and display even after the wedding.

The mental floss article also discusses full custom comics and photo comics which could also be an option to consider.

Thanks for posting an interesting topic, and I hope some of these inspire you for your wedding!  Good luck!

@FutureMrsJohnston:  one of my friends is  photographer and shot a wedding where the guys had the t-shirts on under their tuxes, and the photos are fantastic! 

Maybe consider getting him a groom’s cake, or buying cufflinks with each guy’s favorite superhero on them.

You could also consider using old comic book pages for the cones if you’re doing a rice or confetti toss. Use photoshop to edit them and give them a sepia or b&w tone.

Personally, I’d go with the little things that hint at the superhero. And maybe do a full blown superhero themed something else. Like rehersal dinner? Or bachleor party? So everyone gets something.

My Fiance loves video games, so his grooms cake is going to be an xbox. And after we’re pronouced man and wife, he’s going to have his best man hold up a sign that said “Achievement Unlocked: Gain a wife” It’s the little things ๐Ÿ™‚

We had some of that theme incorporated in my wedding…so much fun.

All of our tables were named after a super hero with an action figure and a description.  We also had Ghostbuster, Zelda, Star Wars, and Ninja Turtles stuff. They all wore matching nerdy socks, and we had themed cake toppers.  I am a big fan of incorpoating your personality and likes into the theme.  I called our theme 

For our entrance my husband and the groomsmen ran wore a proton pack he made from ghostbusters while my brother in law ran around as slimer…not super hero, but it would be adorable you came out with something like a thor helmet and hammer, wolverine claws, cap’s sheild, or capes!

You’ve gotten some great ideas on this thread! I just wanted to say that the best weddings I’ve been to were a quirky fun mish mash of the couples personalities, rather than a strict, rigid theme. I’ve even been to one that featured Wal-E and it was adorable, and tasteful.
