Is anybody else having a Geeky themed wedding??
My fiance and I are HUGE gaming nerds, and we feel a “Legend of Zelda” theme is only appropriate. We are however having a pretty traditional church wedding- just adding some special personal touches. For example, our ring bearer will be Link, and he will be carrying a Hyrulian shield shaped pillow.
Our flower girl will be a Princess Zelda inspired dress- just with a poofier skirt .
We are also going to have a costume “treasure” box filled with princess/hero accessories as part of our picture guest book.

The wedding itself isn’t terribly nerdy, but the bride? Oh yeah!

We’re hiding elements of Doctor Who in our wedding :). For example, the colors are blue and white like the Tardis (a light blue, though, to FI’s dismay), and we’re going to get a cake topper that sort of looks like one of the actors. Oh, and FI’s going to wear a bow tie, b/c all Doctor Who fans know that ‘bowties are cool.’

Our wedding theme is:
(drum roll please)
haha 🙂 no, no theme here. We weren’t willing to actually put that much effort into our wedding, haha!

We don’t even have a stylish theme. If people ask, I say our theme is “drinking” because there will be a lot of it.
But I LOVE nerdy themes. I am a huge geek, but my fiance much less so.

That’s very cool – I’m glad you guys are staying true to yourselves and adding those touches. My Fiance and I are comic book and gaming nerds, but our wedding is very traditional. (I think my dad would’ve had a heart attack if we included anything in our theme that included the words “superhero” and “comics”, lmao.)
It might be interesting to get creative with the invites! Check these out – a dear part of my heart wants to have invites like these:

We’re both huge geeks, so I am trying to slip it in there wherever possible. Our table names will be all nerdy locations (hogwarts, hyrule! hobbiton, tatooine), I really really want a geek cake topper of either robots or zombies or han and leia. Our overall theme is more simple elegance, with lots of candles, but I’m going to try and fit it anywhere I can!

Oh wait! We do have a superhero element in our wedding vows! I almost forgot – when the officiant says, “Do you take blah blah blah to take his hand in marriage…” the next words are: “in brightest day and through blackest night” which is directly from the Green Lantern comics.
It’s the little things that count and that only us and a select few friends will get at the time.

- Wedding: December 2010 - Al Cielo / La Laguna
Total geeky bride right here!!!
We went for more of a rustic theme instead of nerdy but Link will be making an aperance at our at home reception:
Mr. Meerkat used this to make the first valentines day card he ever gave me. =)

@meerkat: OMG, that is ADORKABLE! I love it. I would totally make Mr. Lassroyale (ha ha that sounds so emasculating) a card like that. (I just might…)

@Lassroyale: those are awesome! I had thought about doing something like this too, but for whatever reason the wedding has made my artist brain spooked! I’m having the most ridiculous time just doing save the dates. First it was a movie poster illustration, then it was an 8 bit caricature of us, and now I’m back to just fonts fonts fonts. I’m horrible at caricature, my fiance didn’t even like the 8 bits I made, I was like “um, how much could it possibly look like us!?” So I’m trying to keep my sanity by keeping it simple, hah!

@Lassroyale: omg! I love that too! The only thing I want in our vows right now is “til death or zombies do you part” but now I’m thinking we might dig a bit deeper!

Fiance and I aren’t doing a geeky theme though I was thinking of having Rock Band set up.

I think if we had gone with a nerdy theme it would have been Super Mario! Haha. Darling Husband and I play coin battles against each other all the time. I love your Legend of Zelda idea though.

@arenyth: 8-bit character art sounds amazingly cool, lol. I dabble in drawing and whatnot but it’s nothing to boast to mom about. I’m actually a better copyist than artist. I totally want 8-bit character art of me and Fiance, heh. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to work in the phrase: “All your base are belong to us/me” into some part of the wedding, but it’s not happening.
Well, I’ve got time…::thinks::
