To Infinity and Beyond! Superhero Themed Wedding

Cyclops and Jean Grey. Black Panther and Storm. Vision and Scarlet Witch. Superman and Wonder Woman. Batman and Robin.  When superheroes meet and fall in love, it is cause for celebration. For newly engaged couples seeking a way to incorporate their shared love of one particular superhero or superheroes in general, a superhero wedding theme is an idea easily adaptable for any type of nuptial celebration.

First, set a budget and determine the number of guests. Come to an agreement on how far to carry the superhero wedding theme.  Keep in mind it is not always a great idea to encourage guests to come in full costume. The possibility of future in-laws wearing tights and capes is worth a discussion – some things can never been unseen. One compromise is to keep it tame during the ceremony, letting the fantastic fun loose during the reception.

Superhero wedding invitations

Set things in motion with the invitations. Guests will be curious and excited about a superhero wedding theme. Create a personalized comic book with a brief story about the bride and groom along with all of the pertinent wedding details. A budget-friendly version of this is to have an artist draw a comic strip version of the bride and groom as superheros for the front of the invitation with more traditional details included inside the card.

Most women dream of wearing a beautiful wedding gown. However, there is no reason a traditional dress cannot be made a little bit “super.” A visit to any online store specializing in costume merchandise will reveal superhero garters, lingerie, socks and even shoes to fit the theme without detracting from the gown.  Brave brides might opt to sport a belt fashioned after Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth or her golden arm-cuffs.

Men might enjoy sporting action figure boutonnieres with appropriate flowers attached. They, too, can opt for subtle superhero garb. The groom can wear themed boxers and his favorite super hero t-shirt under his tuxedo. Don’t forget to check out superhero cuff links, rings and other jewelry.

The reception is the time to really make a statement. Have a back drop where guests can take photos – Gotham City? Plain white with thought bubbles painted at head height? Have props like capes and superhero gadgets available nearby. At the bar, create themed drinks with superhero ice cubes and straws with cartoon markers. Top it off with super hero theme coasters.

The wedding cake offers countless possibilities. Each layer of the cake can be decorated to represent a different super hero. A plain cake can be covered with fondant symbols and BAM! POW! blurbs. For a black-white-red Spiderman wedding, feature white cupcakes with delicate spider webs on top.

Don’t forget the guest favors. Superhero Pez dispensers are always a hit. For something more elaborate, assemble bags with Pez dispensers,  masks, silly string and small flashlights with a Bat Signal taped on the lens.

Skip the Macarena or the Chicken Dance – get guests dancing to the Batman TV theme song and a host of other theme songs covered by artists of every genre. Hong Kong Phooey by Sublime will bring everyone to the dance floor. Put the best man to work compiling a play list. If there will be a live band, ask if they will cover one or two favorites.

Have fun. Remember, memorable does not mean expensive. Gather inspiration from: friends, comics, movies, and the internet. While planning a superhero wedding theme, remember the words of the Scarlet Witch, “Everyone’s story begins once upon a time, and it’s up to us to cherish the time we’re given to ensure we live happily ever after.”

Planning a Beautiful Wedding on Any Budget

When you finally find the person of your heart—the one that you want to spend the rest of your life with—then it may be time to make it official; to make the person your lawful and eternal mate. And what better way to acknowledge this major life landmark than through the royalty and regality of a beautiful, ebullient wedding ceremony?

Of course, beautiful and ebullient does not have to equal expensive; and truth be told, just about any couple can host and facilitate the wedding of their dreams—even if it’s on a budget.

  • Guest List: If you have an unlimited budget, then feel free to invite all of the family members and friends to your special event, ranging from cousins to co-workers and everyone in between. Those counting their pennies may wish to restrict their guest list to immediate family (parents, siblings, grandparents, etc.) and closest cronies only.
  • Invitations: If money is no object, feel free to order engraved invites on the most elegant card stock, through a printing company or wedding supply store. If cash is the biggest object, you might buy general, prepackaged invites that still manage to shine in their beauty and warmth; or even create your own, either by hand or on the computer.
  • The Wedding Dress: Of course every bride would love to wear a custom made Vera Wang on the big day; or, at the very least, to custom design the dress of her dreams, ordering this prized frock from a local designer or bridal shop. Those that don’t have this option available might instead sew their own gown, one that is sure to be even more memorable and meaningful than any of its store bought predecessors; or shop at bridal store sales or even thrift stores for more affordable options.
  • The Ring: Couples with unlimited financial resources can feel free to design and order their own wedding and engagement rings from an upscale jeweler, either online or in their area; others may wish to surf the net for bargains, also visiting local stores for sales and bargains.
  • The Venue: Couples with cash can reserve elaborate social halls and event facilities for the big day; even going so far as to rent space at mansions, museums, public gardens and amusement parks for a particularly splashy, high profile event. Others may dream of getting hitched at the church they’ve attended since childhood, at a public park, at city hall, or even at home.
  • Decorations: For those with abundant resources, silk and lace will be the order of the day when it comes to wedding day decorations; expressed in the form of banners, pennants, wall and floor coverings, favors, doilies, etc. Also post an assortment of ribbons, floral bouquets, balloon columns, fountains, and perhaps even crystalline or ice-based sculptures. Yet anyone can plan a beautiful design scheme with the help of handmade wedding favors, paper lace, a few balloons here and there, and some decorative faux florals. Also shop for bargain décor at department store sales, card shops, and at dollar and thrift stores.
  • Music: It just wouldn’t be a wedding without music; and some couples have been known to hire live entertainers to serenade them and their guests with songs of tender and romantic love; whether it’s during the ceremony, the reception, or at both events. Others play recorded music at both times or may hire a d.j.; alternately, a family member that is particularly talented at crooning may agree to sing for free—just make sure that they are indeed particularly talented at crooning, well before the date of the ceremony! And regardless of their financial means, sometimes the groom will serenade the bride on the big day. Awww…
  • Grooming the Groom and Bedecking the Bride: Brides in particular sometimes like to get their hair and make-up professionally done on the big day, also opting for manicures and spa days. Yet even if your mom and sisters come over to make you over just before the ceremony, you are sure to look a vision on your big day.
  • The Reception: Well to do couples often pull out all the stops for their major occasion; renting an elegant, fully decorated reception hall and catering a full meal that guests can enjoy after the ceremony. They also might choose to serve wine and cheese at a clean, well lit social hall, or even enjoy a gourmet meal at home or at a restaurant.
  • The Cake: Regardless of what type of reception you plan, guests are sure to expect cake; and any number of gourmet, fully decorated confections can be custom ordered for the big event, through a caterer, bakery, or independent pastry chef. Yet a particularly lovely and very tasty cake also could be prepared at home, or ordered at a local grocery store.
