Themed Weddings: Superhero Wedding
Kitschy or classy, superhero themed weddings hold a special place in our hearts. Under the neon colored costume is a kid watching Saturday morning cartoons or reading stacks of comic books or pretending to have super powers on lazy summer afternoon. Superheroes wedding is just another variety of the fairytale princess wedding, except with more swashbuckling!
Superheroes celebrate truth, justice, loyalty, and adventure! And isn't that what marriage is all about?
Like I mentioned in the Harry Potter themed wedding post, the key for a grown up themed wedding is the tasteful details. However, we have nothing against declaring loudly and clearly the things we love.
Ironically, this is finally a time where the guys shine! Not only can they wear superhero themed shirts under their jackets and suits a la Superman in a telephone booth, but there are also awesome boutonniere, tie, and shoe ideas like custom Converse sneakers with his favorite superhero logos!
While you might want to have a traditional wedding dress for the sake of photos, we think the addition of superhero-style boots under the dress is a lovely touch.
There is a lot of ways to work in a superhero theme in your accessories. They can be subtle clue in to insiders like Wonder Woman's star earrings or you can have action figures populate your bouquet. Mixed into the confetti can be the sigil of batman or the Avengers.
Vintage and superhero themes go extremely well together since the Golden Age of comic books was around the 30s and 40s. Set your wedding in the homes or work places of one of your favorite superheroes' alter egos: 40's newspaper office or a suave Gotham ball.
Putting a twist on the custom cocktail, name a few drinks after the Incredible Hulk or Kyrptonite. Table names can be fantastical places, characters, or titles of your favorite stories.
