Having a full-out geek wedding

After reading about the two math geeks who wrote their own wedding vows based on Pi and Phi, I decided to check out what other geeky wedding gear there is to be had. How does one have a true geek wedding? I have three words for you: computers, Star Wars, and search engines. I guess that’s six words but never you mind. Let me just preface by saying that I’m pretty geeky but I would never try to integrate sci-fi into my wedding scheme.

Beam me to the church on time!

But these people would! Interspecies love…is that even legal? Perhaps the klingon proposed to his puny human bride like Barry Schwartz proposed to Yisha Tversky: Via search engine. Schwartz used Ask Jeeves. He had Tversky search for her name and there above the search results was an image and the line: “Yisha, Will You Marry Me?”

I now upload you, computer and computer

Real techie types might enjoy these caketoppers from Bytes ‘n’ Grins. Or you could always top your cake with sci-fi action figures. How about Princess Leia and Han Solo? Tres romantique!

Surfing the Net pasta - there is nothing more to say

While guests examine the favors – Surfin’ the Net pasta, of course – the wedding party can go outdoors to pose for action and adventure filled wedding photos inspired by Star Wars.

There you have it. But these are only some of the elements one would need to have the ultimate geek wedding. For further advice (which I am only too unwilling to give), consult the handy, easy to follow guide, Must-Haves For Your Star Trek Wedding.

    Some friends of mine had Shrek and Princess Fiona (in ogre form, of course) as their cake toppers last year. She wore a green Medieval-style gown and he wore a piratical outfit.

    Then there was a couple I knew who met in an amatuer production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe. When they got married, the cake topper was of the Lord Chancellor and a fairy, the roles they played. I thought it was geekily sweet.

    The list of must-haves for the Star Trek wedding made me giggle a lot. I love my Trek, but there’s no way I’d have a wedding based around it! LOL! Just not for me.

    Same here, Twistie. I do love to read about them and look at the pictures, though. I find sci-fi weddings, as Spock would say, “Fascinating.”

    Cool post! Thanks for inlcuding the post on Ryan and Meggie Nelson’s wedding. Their huge Star War fans and well known geeks. It was the best wedding I attended in so long!
