1. Shrek Themed Wedding

shreck wedding

There can be little doubt that the Shrek franchise of films ranks among some of the most popular animated offerings in Hollywood history. Not surprisingly, this much-loved modern monster fairy tale has also sparked some interesting marriages. Couples have donned their best Shrek gear and painted themselves green, yes green. While every wedding may be memorable, no one will ever forget a Shrek themed wedding.

2. Nazi Themed Wedding

Nazi Themed wedding 2

Yes, you did indeed read the headline correctly. Mr. & Mrs. Beardshaw in Kent, England did in fact have a Nazi themed wedding. While a Nazi themed wedding may seem like something more suited for a Brothers Grimm inspired nightmare than a fairy tale, there is more to the story than these sinister costumes might indicate. As it turns out, the Beardshaws are part of a WWII reenactment group, and some guest were dressed in WWII British and U.S. uniforms as well. Still this may have still not been the best thematic choice for a wedding.

3. Peter Pan and Tinkerbell

Peter Pan

For those who love magic and fantasy, a Peter Pan and Tinkerbell themed wedding would have a certain appeal. Just imagine all your favorite Renaissance fair friends slightly altering their normal costumes to fit into the Peter Pan and Tinkerbell lore. However, it’s probably safe to say that if you married a guy who likes dressing up like Peter Pan, you may have bigger problems than just the theme of your wedding.

4. Halo Inspired Wedding

Halo Themed Wedding

Nothing says love quite like shooting an alien in the face. No wonder we’ve seen Halo weddings. What says love better than a plasma sword up the side of one’s head? The couple in this photo met online playing Halo, so they deemed it only natural to have a Halo themed wedding. After the ceremony, “Level 2” was flashed up on the screen. And people say that romance is dead.

5. Star Wars Wedding

Yes, as it turns out, there are women who are willing to partake in Star Wars themed weddings. While this is shocking, it is still apparently true. This Star Wars wedding was recently held in the Ukraine. It also came complete (God help us) with Jar-Jar, George Lucas’ finest creation. Just click the link below for more photos of this couple joining in the Force.

6. Star Trek Wedding

Star Trek

Star Trek weddings are quite popular in Las Vegas. In fact, there is a bridge of the USS Enterprise where would-be Starfleet members can tie the knot while in the presence of Klingons and Ferengis, just as God commanded. It is even possible to dress up in a Starfleet uniform and attend a reception at Quark’s Bar, or at least a replica of the famous watering hole from Deep Space Nine. Back in 2009, the Star Trek Wedding Chapel was Staff Pick for Best Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that you can even get a Federation logo on your wedding cake!

7. Under the Sea Wedding

Under Water Wedding

If you don’t like the water then this one is definitely not for you. This couple met while scuba diving. They thought that it was only fitting that they formalized their love underwater and in the presence of an entire school… of fish anyway. How they exchanged vows is still a bit of a mystery however.

8. Tudor Wedding

If you love Renaissance Fairs, you will no doubt appreciate a Tudor themed wedding. If you’ve ever wanted to dress up like one of history’s most underappreciated wife slayers, Henry VIII, then a Tudor themed wedding definitely fits the bill. Let’s just hope that your wedding ends up better than good old Henry’s!

9. Holy Superheroes Batman

With the enduring and never ending popularity of all things superhero, the fact that there have been superhero weddings should come as no real surprise. Apparently, some super-villains turned up at the reception, but that was only to be expected.

10. Zombie Wedding

zombie wedding

Most single guys would argue that any wedding is a “zombie wedding,” because men blindly march forward and do what they are told. This zombie wedding sported an army of walking dead also dressed as zombies. They rambled incoherently and devoured everything in their path, just like at a “normal” wedding. Brains…

11. Nude Wedding

naked wedding

For most of us, the term “nude wedding” conjures up the worst possible images. For example, what if our sixty-seven year nudist Aunt Sally and her new gentlemen caller Chuck decided to tie the knot? But on occasion, attractive and semi-attractive people opt for the nude wedding as well. Take, for example, Ellie Barton and Phil Hendicott from that wild land down under Australia. A nude wedding definitely has advantages, such as saving money. Ellie and Phil wore nothing more than their wedding rings and some strategically placed roses. One has to ponder what the guests wore to this most memorable of weddings.

12. Storm Trooper Wedding

For those Star Wars fans that feel that a Star Wars themed wedding simply isn’t extreme enough, there is always the possibility of the storm trooper themed wedding. On the downside, everyone is dressed like a mindless killing machine doing the bidding of an evil empire. However, on the plus side, at least everyone is mostly wearing white.

13. Painted Wedding

Painted Wedding

If you are looking for a way to save some serious cash on your wedding and give people an eyeful at the same time, then its definitely going to be tough to beat the paint themed wedding. If you are going to consider this as a serious option then I recommend you spend some serious time in the gym, as these outfits leave nothing to the imagination.

14. Gas Mask Themed Wedding

Gas Mask

Ahhh, love is in the air. How can we tell? Why everyone has gasmasks on silly! Yes, the gas mask themed wedding, as depicted above, was likely a product of WWI, or at least one would hope. Hey, if you have any idea as to the facts behind this most eerie of pictures, please let us know.

15. Sky Diving Wedding

sky diving

Just imagine for a moment taking your vows at 5000 above the earth, only you’re not in an airplane. Instead you are hurling towards earth at about 125 miles per hour. If this sounds like your idea of fun, then you might want to consider a skydiving themed wedding. Just don’t drop the ring.

May 22nd, 2015 by The Wedding Tales

Love The Walking Dead? We’ve rounded up the most creepy-hilarious wedding ideas inspired by zombies, or “walkers,” as they’re referred to on the show. Rather than dress up in costume on the day of their actual weddings, the newlyweds featured below got creative and depicted an apocalyptic fantasy using special effects, décor and more.

Zombie Photos

A groom who goes by the username Josiahx on Reddit asked his wedding photographer to shoot him, his lovely wife, and their bridal party doing their best zombie impressions, and then he added incredible special effects using Photoshop. Watch this amazing timelapse showing how he created this pic!

Who could forget the picnic gone wrong that we covered back in August 2011? The couple survived thanks to a shovel, but we’d feel a lot safer using Daryl’s crossbow or Michonne’s katana sword. This is one of our favorite creative engagement shoots to date.

The engagement shoot inspired other quirky couples to include zombies in their snapshots:

Invitations

We think Maggie and Glenn would approve of these macabre yet elegant invitations. (Who could forget the memorable scene when he ripped an engagement ring off a zombie’s hand and proposed shortly thereafter?!)

One bride and groom chose to hand out traditional wedding invitations to the majority of their guests, but this special version was mailed out to their best friends:

Cakes

For a subtle nod to your zombies fixation, consider a ghoulish cake topper. The undead newlyweds below are looking a little worse for wear, but dare we say it, they’re actually kind of cute.

We love the contrast between the traditional buttercream cake and the herd of zombies climbing up each tier!

This cake had a split personality: A whimsical purple pattern on one side and a zombified version on the other.

zombie-how
May 20th, 2015 by The Wedding Tales
If you are a huge fan of “Dawn of the Dead” or the modern day hit show, “The Walking Dead”, when it comes to your wedding, you may want to ditch conventional wedding traditions and let your inner zombie emerge. Theme weddings have become more prevalent in recent years ranging from Halloween themed nuptials to couples having Disney characters officiate the ceremony. And zombie weddings are in vogue too. So, if you’re dreaming of a zombie wedding, you’ll have to do it right in order to achieve an event even George Romero would “die to attend.”

Steps

  1. Make sure your parents are on board, even if you’re paying for the nuptials.Keep in mind that weddings are also made for the parents, no matter who is paying. They want to celebrate your marriage almost as much as (and sometimes even more than) you.
    • Approach the subject with care. Let them know that you want to have fun with your wedding and desire something out of the ordinary. Remind them of your love of zombie culture/flicks and your desire to inject a little shock value into your big day.
    • Ask them to be part of the planning. Mom may have some hidden talent like making fake blood or finding a creative caterer. If you invite them to be part of it, they may be more accepting (and realize how much fun your wedding will be).

  2. Select a ghoulish location. Part of having the ideal zombie wedding is to secure a ghastly location. You want your guests to feel as if the end of the world occurred or is near––so why not party down?
    • Cemetery. Not the most ideal place for a regular wedding, a cemetery is actually the quintessential location for a zombie wedding. Contact the cemetery caretaker to inquire about parties and locations that would be ripe for your “I do’s.” However, be respectful if your party takes place anywhere near a burial––or talk to the caretaker to ensure that doesn’t occur. Realize that it might upset some of your guests and anyone attending the cemetery to witness a wedding in a cemetery. Consider who you’re inviting before choosing this location.
      • An alternative to a cemetery is to find a field that looks a little creepy or overgrown and to put in fake grave markers.
    • Abandoned motel, house or shopping center. For the ultimate in post-apocalyptic horror, choose a location that appears to have been ravaged by zombies. As with any location, you’ll need to obtain permission from the property owners and possibly (and most likely) pay a fee. If the property is abandoned you may want to hire an independent contractor to conduct a structural inspection to identify any actual hazards––you only want implied danger and not a situation where you or a guest could become injured. Another alternative is to make a set that mimics an abandoned building and have it as part of the wedding decorations.
    • A creepy club. Some warehouses and indie clubs offer an uber-creepy locale. In fact, many locations are prepped and ready for dancing and dining, so inquire about all services and amenities.
    • Another approach is to have the wedding ceremony free of zombies but to bring them on for the reception, from building and decorations to cake and zombie-fied music. In this case, you might like to factor in a change of clothing in between the ceremony and the reception.
  3. Secure a team of professionals to transform your wedding from ho hum to zombie couture. You may need to go that extra mile to make your zombie wedding realistic. Instead of having traditional flowers and make-up, you’ll need to make sure you’re working with a team of professionals who have experience with monster transformations and are on board with your vision.
    • Clothing. Consider going to a secondhand store for the bride’s dress, bridesmaid’s dresses, grooms’ and groomsmen tuxes. Find an outfit you like and then trash it––you’re a zombie so you’re annoyed with your outfit anyway. One stylish consideration is to go retro and get electric blue ruffled tux shirts and big taffeta, mauve dresses. Slash the clothing and cover outfits with fake blood. All clothing should be hacked, including the bride’s dress.
    • Hair. In post-apocalyptic times, hair may not be a priority. In fact it may even look electrifying. Study zombie movies to get the right look; typically, zombies look like they’re wearing a rat’s nest on top of their head, so go for the ultimate in zombie hair. To add an extra element of creepy, find a crazy tiara for the bride to wear, dripping with blood and/or fake brains.
    • Make-up. Since you and your bridal party are basically dead and seeking brains for sustenance, you’ll have more of a green pallor to your face. A trained make-up artist can do the job, however some make-up artists at local salons may be totally into your idea. Consider visiting the local art school for students willing to help or do it yourself by referring to your favorite zombie film and using white pancake make up and black charcoal to hollow out your eyes.
    • Photography. Reconsider spending thousands of dollars on a traditional wedding photographer––you’re going for more artsy, rad photos. Consider hiring a photographer who specializes in photographing bands or even a photo journalist. As with the make-up the local art school may produce willing and talented photographers.
    • Music. Strike a balance between playing “Here Comes the Bride” and the funeral march and include a variety of music and themes during the ceremony and reception. Consider hiring a band or DJ willing to go along with your theme and dress in full zombie garb.
  4. Choose appropriate flowers. Of course dead flowers would be appropriate for a zombie affair, but since you don’t want to include the stench of death as part of your nuptials, select a florist that can pull off that dead flower, end-of-the-world flower arrangement and still allow you to come out smelling like a rose.
  5. Have a Zombie Wedding Ceremony Step 5.jpg

    Find a caterer to create fun, zombie-like fare. The food is where you can have a lot of fun during a zombie wedding. However, you want your guests to actually eat what you’re serving so while you may want to serve food that look like brains and guts, ask your caterer to create fare that is also distinctly appetizing.

    • Brain topped wedding cake. Top a traditional white wedding cake with a large oozing brain made from marzipan or royal icing. Drip blood down the sides of the pristine white wedding cake to give the appearance that someone has just lopped a brain on top of the cake.
    • Food that looks like body parts. From “lady fingers” to Sloppy Joes, select food that represents the zombie theme. Other ideas include deep green guacamole and blood red chips, green or red gazpacho and goat cheese balls. Your caterer may have a few creative suggestions to make your zombie party a hit.
    • For guest gifts, have candies made that look like zombie parts.
  6. Stage some drama. Take your wedding beyond just the “I do’s” and add a bit of drama to the event. Find ways to surprise, thrill and excite your guests so they’ll be talking about your wedding for years to come. Some ideas include:

    • Funeral. Lay to rest your life as a single person and host a funeral for your “lost youth” or “single days.” You could even enter in coffins and have funeral wreaths placed around the altar as your family and friends give you a zombie inspired send-off.
    • Attack your guests. You may not want to completely freak your guests out, so make sure if you stage a zombie attack that it’s done with a little humor. For example, have the attack performed by a bunch of zombie drag queens who want new shoes instead of brains.
    • Stage a rendition of “Thriller.” The classic Michael Jackson video “Thriller” was a zombie paradise of dancing and grooving. Purchase a copy of the video and encourage your wedding party to learn the dance moves. During mid-reception, bust out on the dance floor and give your guests your version of “Thriller” that they won’t soon forget.
  7. Warn your guests that they will be part of a “zombie invasion.” In order to make sure everyone has a great time, clue your guests in on what will happen at your wedding.

    • Send “blood-soaked” invitations. Have fun with the invitations and drip fake blood over the invite and rip or burn them for effect. Include information about the nuptials and elude to a theme.
    • Suggest that guests get in on the fun. Your pictures will look authentic if your guests come dressed as zombies. Let guests know that they’re invited to take part in the fun and even offer to set up hair and make-up artists outside the venue a few hours beforehand to deck out the guests.
    • Consider leaving the children at home. Unless you plan to keep the wedding rated “G”, you may want to let guests know that children should be kept away. You don’t want to responsible for your cousin’s child having post traumatic stress disorder after the event.

Tips

  • Work with wedding professionals who understand and appreciate your vision. If you try the traditional wedding consultant route, you may end up being disappointed.
  • Remember that your wedding photos will look out of the ordinary for the rest of your life. That’s probably a good thing if you’re a zombie fan but just bear it in mind.
  • Register for both traditional and zombie-appreciation gifts. Think about what you may be into 20 years down the––do you think you’ll still want to eat off of china with blood splatters?
  • Continue the theme with a zombie inspired honeymoon––choose destinations that give that depressed, end of the world feel.

Warnings

  • Some family members and other guests may be upset at your choice of wedding theme. This is something you need to weigh up with who you are, how people know you and what matters most to you. In some cases, cultural or religious sensitivities will need to be taken into account and may impact how much of a zombie experience you can recreate. Then again, if you’re the type of person who aims to shock, your family and friends probably won’t be that surprised.
  • Consider including a few rules with your invite so no one gets too carried away and thinks that bringing a 20 gauge shotgun to blow zombies away is a good idea.
