Weddings require planning, organisation and a financial commitment. With that in mind, you should pursue your own ideas and shape the day as you see fit. As much as possible, your wedding should be a reflection of who you are.
“Weddings are a time of great celebration, and also serve as a great moment to reflect the bride and groom’s personalities as much as they can.”
So if the bride and groom are fully paid up geeks, then why not make the big day a salute to all things geeky? Luckily for trekkies, mathletes and Larpers out there, geek is now definitely chic. This makes it the perfect choice for your wedding theme, especially if you want to show your guests what you and your other half are really made of.
If you want your geek-chic theme to be a success, you need to dive in feet first with some eye-catching geek-themed décor. Your theme will cover everything, including the table settings, the bunting, the bouquets and the balloons. If you can’t find decorations that suit your chosen theme, your theme, you can take your geek credentials up a notch by making all of the pieces yourselves.
The wedding cake
These days, finding a themed wedding cake is easy. If you can’t find a bakery that stocks the right cake, you can always ask them to whip up a geektastic creation for the big day. It will act as the centrepiece for your wedding feast, so don’t be afraid to be bold with your choices.
Your geek-chic wedding theme shouldn’t ignore the drinks. An easy option is to create a special cocktail for the big day and then name it in honour of your favourite geek hero. If you and your partner are science nerds, you could serve the cocktail in a beaker or have dry ice pouring over the bar as the drinks are dished out.
Geek chic photo booth
Having your décor, food and drinks reflect your theme is all well and good, but if you really want to go all out your guests need to be involved too. One of the easiest ways to do this is to hire a photo booth for the day and then provide a box of geek-inspired props and outfits for your guests to try on. As well as helping to get everyone well and truly into the geek chic spirit, these photos will offer a fantastic memento of your day.
Another way to involve your guests in your geek theme is to organise a pub quiz with rounds dedicated to your favourite, films, characters or chemical elements. A quiz is a great way to get guests chatting at their tables and to introduce a bit of good-humoured competition to the day.
