My fiancee and I love video games, and actaully met and bonded over the video game Portal. Our families are somewhat traditional, and older, so we don’t want to overwhelm everyone with weird whippersnapper stuff.
How can you incorporate something ‘odd’ as a videogame, without it being… cliche?

On the cake topper? Or on the escort cards? Minor touches! Its not overwhelming but still cool!!!!
I’d like to do something simliar with Doctor Who, but not be too crazy about it.

Or do a few really cool pictures portal style and have that be it.

@Haruyou: for a ‘theme’, i totally recommend doing it subtely and through small touches. the colors could be black with hints of brighter colors (i’ve played portal). the cake topper could be portal themed as PP said, if you have a photo booth you could have portal-themed props, the guest book could be portal themed, etc. just make sure its not overwhelming!

@Haruyou: LOVE Portal!!! You can be as subtle or as out there are you like with the video game theme.
Cake topper for sure or the whole cake, I’ve seen pics of a Companion Cube version! You could also put a pin in the boutonnieres for the guys, I’ve seen one where people put in a free man mushroom from Mario.
Depends on how far you want to go, I think it’s fun to incorporate some of your personality into your wedding but you don’t need to get married in costume or anything 🙂

@Haruyou: We had a few unique touches in our wedding that were totally us but went unnoticed.
1) had the lord of the rings piano instrumental play during our candle ceremony
2) my bridesmaids wore the evenstar
3) we had placecards on me and Darling Husband seats that said: summoner (on mine) and champion (on his)…..we play a lot of LoL
I think everything can be done tastefully! We only had a few little touches but they didn’t disrupt the wedding/reception and were pretty important to me and Darling Husband 🙂

I think you could do some really cool things with the colors. Like have the bridesmaids wear teal accessories and the groomsmen wear orange pocket squares. Very subtle but still fun. You could always bring some props for a few fun photos, like a portal gun or companion cube. Also, I’ve considered doing this in my own bouquet – hiding a mini potato and/or lemon somewhere in your bouquet.

- Wedding: March 2014 - A castle
I wouldn’t do an entirely Portal themed wedding, but I would incorporate small touches here and there. Portal themed caketopper? Cardholder? Something on the Save the Dates with the portal logo or maybe you guys pretending to jump into a portal? A lot of small touches here and there will add up, but won’t overwhelm your guests.

@Haruyou: A friend of mine is including instramental versions of the music from the game (big portal fans too) They will know what it is, but older guests will just hear pretty melodies.
Blue and orange make great wedding colors together if you use blue as the main color and orange accents. It’s actually a somewhat popular choice.
Their are a lot of Portal earings on Etsy or Thinkgeek. Some are subtler than others. As a Doctor Who fan, I’m going to change out my earings during the reception to sonic screw drivers from an Etsy shop.
There are some cocktails named after Portal stuff. You could hand your bartender one to use as your signature drink.

I think it’d be so funny if you incorporate “The Cake is a Lie” into your wedding.
Like if you had a fake cake you guys cut into and everyone got served sheet cake from the back. And when you flip the cardboard cake, it says “The Cake is a Lie The Cake is a Lie The Cake is a Lie The Cake is a Lie”
The photographer could take pictures of your and the groom in the back with the cardboard cake and it’ll be your inside joke. No one even needs to know!
heheh I would so do this

@BayBee: + a million companion cubes
@Haruyou: Luckily, where we’re from we’re also able to throw a wedding social, which is going to be videogame themed. That said, we’re incorporating a bit of a Doctor Who theme into our photobooth and are walking down the aisle to a piano song from an anime series that we both bonded to. I think the trick to doing something like this is to do it subtly, like everyone else has said 🙂
