MY BIG FAT GEEK WEDDING!
More and more people are looking to personalise their wedding experience and make it a day when their own hobbies and interests are linked to proceedings. Sometimes there’s a subtle link, like table names based on places the couple have spent time together. At other times, there’s a distinct theme running through pretty much everything.
Increasingly that leads to what can affectionately be termed a “geek wedding” – where the bride, groom, guests, food, decorations and venue are themed around everything from Star Wars to Super Mario.
Geek weddings are often memorable simply because of the fun way in which they’re organised and here at One4all we’re increasingly seeing some great ideas.
Couples have been kicking things off with innovative invitations, such as those designed to look like classic Nintendo game cartridges or in the style of “Nightmare Before Christmas” for a Halloween wedding.
When it comes to the wedding ceremony and reception, it’s fair to say that geeks can choose from a few venues which break from the norm. Doctor Who theme bars and an underground bunker designed to withstand a zombie apocalypse are just a couple of examples.
Wherever the bride and groom choose to hold a geek wedding, some distinctly different guests can be invited. Believe it or not, Star Wars fanatics can arrange an appearance by an international Star Wars fan club, who turn up dressed as Stormtroopers. And if that’s not quite your galaxy of choice, you can get wedding rings, dresses and cakes designed with a Star Trek theme.
Of course, if you’re looking for a gift to give at a geek wedding, it may be that you prefer to let the bride and groom choose how far they want to take their particular theme. The One4all Gift Card can be personalised and used to choose from 17,000 retailers as well as selected retailers’ websites for the purchase of experience days.
So whether the happy couple want to get their own Stormtrooper outfit or purchase a Star Trek special edition box set, if you’re looking for a personalised wedding gift that offers the choice for the new Mr and Mrs, look no further than a One4all Gift Card!
