A Love So Nerdy: The Best Of The Best Geek Weddings!

The Phoenix Comicon is in town this weekend! In honor of this momentously nerdy occasion, we would like to showcase some of the best geeky weddings on the web. If you and your fiance are self-proclaimed Whovians, gamers, Brown Coats, Trekkies or any other nerd denomination, then read on for wedding ideas that will tickle your nerdy sensibilities!

Statement Shoes:

For the nerdy girls out there (and the guys too!), what better way to accent your nerdy wedding look than with a fabulous pair of shoes!? Then again, if you prefer a more traditional look but still want to get your nerd on just a little, then nerdy shoes are the way to go. There are plenty of different nerdy wedding shoes out there, anything from heels, to wedges, to flats or hightops! Here are a few of our favorites from around the web. (Check out our photo gallery for even more!)

Nerdtastic Invites & Save The Dates:

Your guests will get their first preview of your spectacular celebration when they receive their save the date or invitation in the mail. Since this will be their first contact with your wedding, we encourage you to go all out. You know what they say about first impressions of course! Outside of impressing your guests with a creative invite, it’s also important to give them a feel for your wedding so that they have an idea of what to expect. Some of your guests may be a little intimidated by your wedding theme, so it’s best not to blindside them with it on the wedding day!

Beautiful Flowers:

Flowers are an essential ingredient to any good wedding, whether nerdy or not. You can of course choose flowers that match the colors of your particular theme, or if you have a favorite color in mind already,  just add a nerdy touch to the stem wrap instead. You can also add a nerdy little accessory inside your bouquet or on top of it so that you can walk down the aisle with your favorite character in hand! For a great example of how to add nerdy touches to beautiful floral pieces, see this Santa Monica wedding on When Geeks Wed.

It’s All In The Details:

The best way to create a cohesive theme is to include plenty of small details for the guests to find in everything from the attire, to the decor, to the centerpieces, to the food! However, do keep in mind how easy it is for a themed wedding to make the unfortunate transition from cute and fun to obnoxious and overdone. To avoid this wedding mishap, consider going  with a more classic look for the main wedding elements (the flowers, the dress, the tuxes, the centerpieces etc.) and then simply accent that classic look with a fun, themed detail. Just make sure your details aren’t clashing or overpowering one another!

Capture A Nerdy Memory:

Finally, the best thing about a nerdy wedding is all the out-of-this-world photos you can get. Take some time on your special day to enjoy a personal photo shoot with your new spouse. Grab a couple of great props and maybe even a change of clothes and go all out in front of the camera! You can even take some spectacular group shots for all your guests to take home as favors.
