On most days, you aren’t afraid to let your nerd flag fly, so why should your wedding day be any different?
Pink roses and frilly lace aren’t for everyone. If you want your wedding to show just how geeky you two are, you should consider integrating any (or all!) of the following 20 wedding ideas into your nuptial celebrations.
Geek Your Eats
Who gets excited by plain white buttercream frosting anymore? Now that we know just how outrageous and awesome baked goods can be, there is no reason to settle for a boring wedding cake.
You can glean inspiration from any of the following nerdy cakes, or you can dream up your own geeky eats.

Cosplaying requires incredibly elaborate clothing, which could be perfect for your special day. The following cosplayers demonstrate possible get-ups that definitely break the same old boring mold.
