Sometimes traditional just isn't your style, and instead of a normal wedding topper with a beautiful, normal couple, you really just want you and your beau to be fighting zombies atop your wedding cake or playing Xbox...something that captures your real personalities. If so, a nerd wedding may just be more your taste. Here's some tips on how to plan the perfect nerd wedding fit for you, whether your a Gryffindor or a Slytherin.
Tip #1: Pick a Theme
Before diving into your wedding planning, it's vital that you pick a theme. Whether it's just Batman, the entire Justice League, or a combination of all your favorite fandoms, picking your themes will give you the ideas that you'll roll with. It's also a great way for you and your significant other to have fun planning the wedding TOGETHER, rather than making it stereotypically about the bride. Combine your favorite loves as a symbol of two souls becoming one.
Tip #2: Pinterest is Your Pal
After picking your themes, check out ideas from other nerd weddings on sites such as Pinterest or whengeekswed.com. It'll give you inspiration for your own wedding, and there's nothing wrong with stealing an idea or two. Here is a great place to start.
Tip #3: DIY for Devoted Brides
There are TONS of DIY ideas out there on the internet that will give your wedding a personal touch by making it with your own two hands, plus it's great for a bride on a budget. Make your own wedding shoes, wedding bouquet or wedding clothes and keep it personal.
Tip #4: It's all about the Invite
One of the coolest parts about any nerd wedding is the invite. This is a way to show your guest your creativity and how awesome your wedding is going to be with something as simple as a sheet of cardstock. You can make it simple, intricate, and even interactive. It's all up to you!
Tip #5: Every Chance to Nerd Out
Depending on how nerdy you want your wedding to be (or if you'd rather just have somenerdiness splattered here and there), you should use every chance you can to nerd out. Create a cake fit for the King of Westeros. Throw a Superman cape or a utility belt on your wedding dress. Make your wedding fit you, after all it is your day!
