A wedding is quite possibly the most epic quest you will ever endeavour on in your entire geek life. Even the most intellectual and organisational geeks will cower away at the thought of finding the dress boutique, the cake bakery, and even the wedding hair accessories retailer! Planning your geek wedding can seem more daunting than defeating the final boss in your favourite video game; so here’s a little inspiration that might help see you though...


5. Minecraft Wedding

It’s fast becoming one of the biggest RPGs out there, so it’s no surprise our second life in the world of Minecraft can sometimes be so absorbing we need to bring it into our real lives. Now, we’re not suggesting you wield your pickaxe and go questing deep within the Earth to find your loved one a diamond - that might result in death, and you don’t respawn here in real life, however, if you’re so inclined you can add a few cute blocky Minecraft accessories to your venue!

Geek Tip: The more enterprising geeks among us can even DIY this wedding theme, just grab some boxes and your paints!


4. Adventure Time Wedding

As long as you’re not the Ice King and planning to steal and marry a few princesses, an Adventure Time themed wedding is a fantastic mathematical idea! Create an adorable Candy Kingdom inspired sweet buffet, tell guests to dress in the colours of their favourite character, and have a few crystal swords thrown around as decorations for good measure.

Geek Tip: If you’re the artistic sort, you can doodle up some fun Adventure Time themed wedding invites!


3. Game of Thrones Wedding

We sincerely hope your GOT wedding doesn’t begin with a beheading (Don’t look at your mother-in-law like that.), but it is fun to get married in a wedding dress inspired by costumes from the show! Bonus points if you have this wedding theme in winter. It might be a little difficult to find a wedding hair accessories retailer that sells dragon fascinators, but it’s the cute, quirky bits of geeky fun like that, that will really make the day that bit more special.

Geek Tip: Why not even design your own house sigils for your families?


2. Nintendo Wedding

Found your Princess Peach? Is she your Player 2 in this game of life? Perhaps a Nintendo wedding theme is for you! Walking down the aisle to some awesome 8-bit remixes might be received in various ways by your family, but I’m sure they can only be amazed by your awe-inspiring “1-Up” wedding hair accessory!

Geek Tip: If you want to go all out, get a trusted friend to add 8-bit sound effects to the wedding – the night will be much more fun with knockout sounds when people hit the deck after too many drinks.


1. Comic Book Wedding

Check out that comic book hair accessory!

Your wedding day is all about fun right? So what could be more fun than the bright pop-art colours of a comic book theme? He’s your Superman, and she’s your Wonder Woman, and that gives you licence to be a little bit silly; be brave and dye your hair a bright colour, find a charming little bow tie – you don’t have to go all out on this theme, just have colour and kitsch at the front of your mind. It’s the perfect balance of geek and chic.

Geek Tip: Make cupcake favours designed to look like the costumes of your favourite heroes.
