I think something may be in the water… tons of lovely, geeky couples have gotten engaged over the last couple months. I get so excited when I see wedding plan updates on Facebook and Twitter! The most fun part of the wedding planning for me was finding ways to sneak little geeky elements into the wedding that wouldn’t upset or confuse the non-geeks. These invitations would have been a great way to do that. Show off your love of games in a bright, fun invitation that’s approachable to anyone. Perfect for game designers or game lovers, it’s even an easy theme to carry on into your wedding. Have the table centerpieces be different vintage board games, and incorporate some gaming into the wedding. For instance:
- Tables have to roll a 20 on a D20 for the wedding couple to kiss
- Play rounds of Trivial Pursuit to see which tables are excused to get their buffet dinner first
- Have small “wedding bingo” cards instead of place cards. Have a “prize center” where they can redeem their bingo card for a small souvenir of the wedding
Board games not your thing? Still make sure you check out OneLittleM, her invites are all amazing.
Congrats to all of the newly engaged couples out there! If you have any wedding planning or etiquette questions you’d like me to address, contact me!
