Whether you call yourself a nerd or a geek, you’re sure to find something you like on this list. Wedding material? That’s for you to decide – but you may be surprised by how elegant a nerdy wedding can be.
Doctor Who Weddings
A Whovian theme can be as simple as choosing TARDIS blue as your theme color – or you could go all out. Disguise your photo booth as a TARDIS (memories are bigger on the inside!). Music options might include the original soundtrack or Doctor Who inspired music, affectionately called “trock.” And of course, this theme makes it very easy for the bride to carry something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue!
Harry Potter Weddings
Hang up your house banners and turn up the Wizard Rock! Each member of the wedding party can accessorize with his or her own house colors. You might enlist special help from your caterer – recipes for magical candies and drinks from the famous series abound. Fifty house points if you can figure out how to hang candles from the ceiling in the Great Hall for your reception.
Lord of the Rings Weddings
There may be more than One Ring in your wedding ceremony, but the possibilities are as expansive as Middle Earth. With gowns straight from Lothlorien and rings inscribed with Elvish script, this nerdy wedding theme may be most elegant of them all. Couples have worked with bakers to design cake replicas of locations from the epic fantasy series – from the Shire to Mordor. And of course, there’s plenty of music and poetry to incorporate into everything from the invitations to the dancing.
The list goes on – Disney, Star Wars, steampunk, video games. If there’s a passion you and your fiance share, you can theme your wedding around it. Just make sure you don’t lose sight of your most important fandom: each other.
