@nl:  I don’t think you should let it get to you so much if people don’t quite understand your theme. If you get it and love it, that should be more than enough. If someone asks me what was the point of the theme, just say it’s your vision of your wedding. Trust me, on the day of you’ll be so busy you won’t notice if people are getting it or not.

I’m going to be honest….I don’t get it. I mean I understand you are an artist and you clearly have a vision of how you want your wedding to be with this theme but who cares if not everyone knows your theme? Won’t all the people closest to you know your theme? Sorry if I misunderstood your post.

Don’t overthink!  If you love it and will look back at the pictures and be proud of all the details you pulled together, then it won’t matter if THEY get it!  Some people never do–trust me.

Everything sounds like it will be lovely.  Good luck to you!!!

Your wedding doesn’t sound crazy at all, sounds similar to mine actually. If they don’t get it, theyre not gonna get anything lol

We are huge nerds and our wedding had a lot of geeky elements in it, including a surprise (to my groom and the guests) visit from someone dressed as Darth Vader from Star Wars during the reception.

Were there some people who didn’t “get it” and looked down on it? I’m sure there were. But the majority of people either thought it was awesome or at the very least thought it was “us” and appreciated it in that sense. Honestly, it’s your shower and your wedding. Your themes sound awesome and if people can’t appreciate them, well poo on them. Make yourself happy 🙂

@nl:  Ohhhh! Please don’t overthink it! You will lose sleep over it thinking about this and you will never really know the answer. I agree with others…as long as you and Fiance and immediate friends/family know then that’s all that matters. And they all will bc you probably at some point will or have already told them!

Even the people who don’t “get it” will think it is a beautiful wedding , so what does it matter?

I’d be one of the ones who doesn’t get it , re  a bride planning her own shower.

You planned and paid for your own shower? I side-eye that.
