Geek Outfit of the Week: One Ring to Bind Them.

When you receive a wedding invitation in the mail that announces you’ve been invited to a Lord of the Rings wedding, the only option is to wear something awesome and Middle Earth-like.

I opted to wear a red kaftan I found on Etsy vintage a while back. I wore a vintage slip under it, and pinned a necklace in my hair.

While I tried my best at being royalty, the husband did his best hobbit impression, but in a Utilikilt. And a battle axe.

The wedding was held at a beautiful location and the weather was perfect. The ceremony was a mixture of Christian and Jewish traditions, but mainly, it was just pretty.

Good wishes on the Chuppah.

It’s true, you know.

A fight to the death!

Lord of the Rings cake and TARDIS Rice Krispy cake. YES REALLY.

Jedi Barbie?

The first of many dances.

Epic lightsaber battle is epic.

Additionally, you know you’re at a geek wedding when:

  • There are dwarves, jedi, hobbits, elves, and Darth Vaders roaming around.
  • The bride and groom’s first dance is to Weird Al Yankovic’s White and Nerdy.
  • Everyone knows the words to Come What May from Moulin Rouge and sings along while slow dancing.
  • There is robot dancing and Irish jigs.
  • The exit song is the Imperial March from Star Wars.

It was honestly the most fun I’ve had at a wedding since, well, my own, which I should probably blog about one day.

Congratulations, Wayne and Christy! Thank you for making weddings fun and geeky for all.
