I think it’s adorable. A lot of things like “heart of gold” and petunias wouldn’t even come off as geeky. The towel might be a little much without an explanation though…maybe you could have a different favor wrapped in terrycloth? In any case, people will go with it. It’s your wedding after all!

I love Hitchhikckers, but sooo many people haven’t read it (which makes me sad). I think you’re seriously on the right track for it though πŸ™‚

I haven’t read the book (shame on me!) But I don’t think it’s too geeky! I’m having a HARRY POTTER wedding for goodness sake. I think  we’re on an equal level lol.

My mom kind of laughed and rolled her eyes, but once I explained to her that I’m not gonna have Gryffindor banners or anything, she was really supportive.

Everyone else has been really good about it. My grandma is PUMPED, and all of my friends that I’m close to are crazy excited to see how it all turns out.

As soon as I came up with the idea, I was sold. There’s a thread about it hanging around somewhere on here, and everyone has been super helpful with giving me more ideas!

I think the most important thing to remember is that it doesn’t really have to be an all-out theme. I like to call mine “inspired” rather than themed. We’ll definitely incorporate a lot of aspects from the books/movies, but it The goal is that people who have read the books will love the effort that we put into the details, but the people who haven’t will just think it looks like an elegant wedding.

The important thing is that you have a wedding that represents YOU! If you’re geeky, don’t be scared to represent! Lol.

Hope I helped!

@calico61979: Yep, that’s me! It’s the restauraunt’s banquet hall, though, since the logistics inside the restaurant just wont work for that many people. And your Fiance is missing out!!

I think that if you want to do something, you should go for it. I like the idea you have for your programs!

Its not geeky at all, it’s cute and fun, and mostly.. it’s personal to you and your FH. There are so many people out there trying to create weddings that look like they’ve come straight from a magazine and have to be perfect in every way, without any personality or hints of the bride and groom in. I think it’s a great idea x

I love it! Could you have a whale falling somewhere too?! I thought our wedding might turn out a bit like this, but in the end we realised that we wanted to keep a lot of traditional elements. I’m still hoping to include a few geek bits here and there πŸ™‚

I think this sounds AWESOME, but I’m a pretty huge Douglas Adams fan. It is possible that a lot of people just won’t get it, but the way you described it sounds subtle and tasteful enough that it shouldn’t really be an issue. I love your idea for the programs, and the bowl of petunias. πŸ™‚

I think its great! My Fiance and I are really taken by the universe and how it works, thus we might be encourperating that into our theme (Black/white and modern/contemporary) which it not very hard. We will be doing lots of glass spheres… naming our tables after things like “super massive black hole” “quasar” etc.. SO… I guess I am maybe not the best person to judge on geekyness.. but I think the most important thing is that it is individual to you and your Fiance and it sounds like it def will be πŸ™‚
