Top Five Ideas For A Gamers Wedding

When it comes to planning your wedding, you are actually able to do anything you like. No longer are you restricted to the usual traditional wedding where the bride wears white and the service takes place in a church? These days more and more couples are choosing to make their wedding a more personal affair and in some cases choose to base it around a particular theme such as gaming.

In fact geeky, nerdy inspired weddings are very much in trend at the moment and it is now possible for couples to arrange video game hire for weddings if they so wish. Whether you want your wedding based around Harry Potter or say Mario you can if you so wish. There are even some couples that have chosen to base their wedding around characters for games such as World of WarCraft.

Below we offer some really great ways that will allow you to add some nerdy touches to your big day. These are the kinds if you don’t want to go full on with a wedding that is based around a particular theme. If you choose a particular theme for yours then why not go further and arrange with a company that offers video game event hire in Greater London to supply you with games based around it.

Ideas For Your Gamer Themed Wedding

1. Invitations

This is one of the easiest ways in which you are able to add not only a personal touch to your wedding but also create something that is nerdy. You could create invitations that look like video game cartridges or you can opt for 8-bit style wedding invitations. The 8-bit style invitation is actually perfect for you to send out if you’ve chosen to go with the video game theme for your big day.

2. Think About What You Will Wear

Clothing, of course, is going to be a big part of the most important day in your life. It is possible to still go down the traditional route, where the bride wears the traditional white dress and the groom is in a suit. You can bring out the theme of your wedding by adding little touches to your outfit.

For example, the bride could wear a necklace or a belt around her waist that is Darth Vader inspired. As for the groom, of course, he can wear a tie, socks or cufflinks that include images of the character he likes the most from his favourite video game.

3. Wedding Decorations

This is where you can get really creative when it comes to your wedding. Here anything goes and even the smallest of touches will make a big difference to the way your wedding looks and feels.

For example, if you are a fan of say Lord of the Rings you may want to consider naming tables where guests sit after specific locations from the books. However, if you are a big Star Wars fan why not think about naming the tables after specific characters from the films.

4. Reception

As well as the decorations you could, of course, go all out and decorate the area where your reception is taking place based on a particular location from your favourite video game. Also arranging with a company that offers video game hire for weddings will further help to bring the theme you’ve chosen to life.

5. Gaming Wedding Cake

These days there are plenty of talented bakers around who will be able to come up with the perfect wedding cake based on your particular theme choice. You could, of course, keep it simple and choose one that is based on that vintage video game Mario. But you may want to be a little more experimental. How about having a cake made in the shape on the Millennium Falcon sat on top of the Death Star and perched on top of that is Princess Leia and Hans Solo.

Certainly, when it comes to gaming wedding ideas you will find that you really are spoilt for choice, it is only your own imagination that may prevent you from creating something truly unique.
