How to mesh his with mine???

So my darling DH onlys wants to be happy which is why we are having a Vow Renewal in the first place.  Our wedding was not what dreams are made of in any way shape or form.  This time I want it to be freaking amazing.  As many of you know I have been trying to incorporate my love of mythology with an especial love for dragons into this wedding as much as possible.  


Now then, I want to incorporate some of him as well.  I know that it would mean a lot to him no matter how much he says he doesn't care.  The problem is that he loves computers, cars especially Porsches, and watches.  He also loves war history whereas I am more into Renaissance/Medieval and the afore mentioned Mythology.  How do I mesh war history and computers with my dragons, faeries, unicorns etc.?  Seriously is this possible without looking like it is all over the place?


ETA:  The grooms cake will be centered around his family crest.  If we can afford it, I want an ice sculpture with it as well.  Also, I want to rent a Porsche for our getaway car.

Could you have a Groom's cake made for him and decorate that little area for him?  I wanted to do that for my DH, but the cake that I would have had made him would have been something like 1000.  He's a DJ and I came up with turntables and such. 


What about "aging" the invites so they would end up looking "historic"? Here is just something I found doing a quick search.


Could you have a photo 3475789-1


and where the flowers (or design is - I can't really make out what it is) you could "age" a picture of a dinasour.  Just a thought

I agree with Becca on the grooms cake. My FI is a surfer so I am having a grooms cake done in the shape of a surf board in his favorite flavor. Love the picture she posted

War history and computers combined with dragons, faeries and unicorns? I really dont know, the two dont really go together. I feel the two ideas combined together will be too..much,too..busy.

Why dont you go with with the mythology, and incorporate his passion in other ways? I like the porshe idea you came up with, Ill think of other possible ways to incorporate his ideas in a subtle way, then Ill get back to you. Happy planning!!

@nenyibabs, thanks for you help.  I am sure there is a way to do it though I am just not sure how to go about it.

The family crest will blend in nicely. How about historic items that revolve around your medieval era? Swords, maces, helms, sheilds.. a suit of armor? 


It will be a tough act to balance but I am sure you can make it work out.
