Anything Geeky in your Wedding?

Are you including anything geeky in your wedding?


Just occurred to me that we haven't talked about this in this group!


In our wedding, our recessional song was Fanfare (the victory song) from the video game Final Fantasy IV:

It's the song you hear after you defeat enemies in a fight. We thought it was cute. It's like we conquered the marriage ceremony! Love is a battlefield! ;)

We're using instrumental game music in our ceremony- still finalizing choices though ;)


And our table names/pictures are rooms in the Karazhan raid from WoW

Fun!!  We were originally going to do the same thing Lilivati with the table names/pictures.  We were going to assign each table a main city from WoW, but figured it would be lost on EVERYONE except us and maybe one other person...lol so we scrapped the idea.

So  I finally have something to add to this thread!  Yay, lol.  It was hard with my theme to add much nerdtacular (I made this word up, but even my daughter uses it now) to the wedding, but I worked through it.  For those who don't know our theme is Enchanted Forest, so we're naming our tables after Forests and woods in WoW and other fantasy things.  So, to name a few, Elwynn Forest, Silverpine Forest, Crystalsong Forest, The High Forest (Forgotten Realms nerd), Fangorn Forest (LotR).  I told some of my geeky friends and they're fighting over who gets to sit where!  Also, I found the perfect WoW grooms cake!  Going to do a few modifications to it as FI is not playing a shaman.  =P  Here's a pic, there are more on my bio.  =)


               So I finally have photo 2250448-1

I keep joking with FI that our entrance song to the reception will be the Star Wars Theme LOL


And yeah, if we tried to do WoW stuff, only us & FI's brothers would get it.


All of our groomsmen's bouts are Lego-Men :D


I think our cake topper is going to be Lego-Men too unless I can find some good figurines.. Maybe Princess Peach & Mario, I could steal those from the chess set I got FI last xmas... hmm ideas.


I think I'm going to do the groom's cake as the battle of Hoth.

We had a few things dedicated to an MMO called EVE-Online.  It's the game where my husband and I met, so we felt it fitting to have a bit of a tribute to it.  :)  


I suppose the EVE theme started back before our wedding with our engagement pictures. We have a few, but this is one of my favorites: 

We had a few photo 2977410-1

For our wedding we chose to have an EVE themed cake. We thought about having a Hel and a Nyx topper made (those are ships that we've both been known to fly) but having a topper created for us proved to be too expensive. So we went another route and had images of each ship printed in edible ink on our cake! Our concept continued with cupcakes in decorated in friendly and enemy fleet colors having a fleet fight around our motherships. Here are a few images I stitched together:

We had a few photo 2977410-2

We decided to have our table names also be EVE related, both in font and the names themselves. All tables were named after cap and super caps - Hel, Nyx, Aeon, Avatar, Erebus, Wyvern, Moros, Phoenix, Archon, Naglfar, Chimera (funny sidenote: we thought about seating my church friends at the table named "Hel", but figured we'd skip the drama and seat our EVE friends there instead. :P) As I was putting these together, I was searching all over for a "spacey" looking font... completely forgetting that one had been created using EVE's logo! Silly me. lol Once a friend hit me over the head with a link to the font, I knew that was what it would have to be. Here's a board of the table names:

We had a few photo 2977410-3

We also used the EVE font in our programs. Our Dutch versions were longer then the English versions, so they had more EVE font headers. Here's pic of the Dutch version:

Hey Ladies!


 


Just saw this and I was excited to see other weddings with some geeky stuff, I gotta couple of songs we are using from different games, like our enterance song is the opening theme to Pokemon and the garter toss will be a remix of the battleship song in Mario. Im still working on trying to find something my future hubby will like from Zelda and where I can us it. Anyone have any ideas for a good song to play for when we finish our ceremony and walk the aisle as a couple?
