Unlike the era before 1990s, geeks today have a much better chance of finding a girl who is equally as geeky as them and actually wants to live with them in geekdom for the rest of their lives. With their better halves sharing their passions, geeks can finally have the themes of their weddings match their eccentric obsessions and the number of comic book inspired wedding parties are overpowering the old-fashioned white weddings slowly but steadily. If you too have been a lifelong fan of an enterprise but aren’t sure whether you should let your geekiness dominate you wedding ceremony, let our compilation of the some of the best geeky wedding themes be the inspiration for your own unique big day.
One of the most popular geek wedding themes, the Superhero Wedding is suprisingly easy to do though it is always very difficult to get all your guests to get excited about dressing up for the superhero theme of your choice. Depending on the superhero you adore, every element of the wedding can be customized to reflect your adoration of a particular comicbook icon and you can even rent vehicles or even book a superhero-theme park booked for your wedding ceremony.
Harry Potter Themed Wedding
A lot of the kids who are the same age as the cast of the Harry Potter series are all grown up now and already getting married. If you are one of them and have always wanted to incorporate the magical world of HP movies that you grew up with in your big day, you very well can! Just ask your guests to wear witch/wizard hats and capes and carry wands. You can even have a Hogwarts dining hall-style reception though finding candles that float in mid-air would be a little hard to do!
Hello Kitty Wedding
If you thought girl geeks liked the same stuff as boy geeks, think again! Just like men are obsessed with the masculinity of their superheroes, women too have cute and girly fictional icons like Disney princesses and Hello Kitty! If you love your geeky bride-to-be enough to let her have the Hello Kitty-themed wedding of her dreams, you’re sure to be adored lifelong for the “sacrifices” you made on your wedding day.
Zombie Apocalypse Wedding
If you are planning a late fall wedding, choosing a Halloween-y Zombie Apocalypse theme for your wedding can be the most fun idea ever and almost everyone coming to your wedding would enjoy getting dressed in distressed clothing and OTT zombie makeup! And if any of your relatives get drunk and start acting out, you won’t be as embarrassed as you would have been at a snooty bash!If you are planning a late fall wedding, choosing a Halloween-y Zombie Apocalypse theme for your wedding can be the most fun idea ever and almost everyone coming to your wedding would enjoy getting dressed in distressed clothing and OTT zombie makeup!

Shrek Themed Wedding
Everyone loves a good love story and for geeks, they don’t get better than the story of Shrek and Princess Fiona who overcame the odds and lived happily ever after. What’s really fun about this wedding theme is that guests have a large variety of Disney- and fairy-tale characters to choose from and you can get married in a park or even your backyard to stick with the theme.
Scientist Wedding theme
Since being a science geek is no longer something to be ashamed of, a science-themed wedding could actually be a great way to make your special day even more extraordinary. However, you’ll just have to double check every detail for scientific accuracy since scientists are known to be very detail oriented!
Steampunk Wedding Themes
Convincing your non-geek fiancé to have a Steampunk-themed wedding is a lot easier than convincing them to have a Batman-inspired bash. Since the genre overlaps with the themes of the Victorian era, your bride and guests would mind getting dressed in lavish period costumes, getting in steampunk horse-driven coaches and having a Victorian-style décor for the reception.
Star Wars Themed Wedding
If your fiancé lets you have a Star Wars themed wedding, you know you have met your soul mate and you should cherish them for the rest of your life. Yet another costume-intensive theme, this one could be a lot of fun for guests who would be able to dress up as storm troopers and the groomsmen and bridesmaids can choose from the beloved characters of the Star Wars universe to stand out from the crowd!
Pirate Themed Wedding
Before Johnny Depp “invented” the lovable character, pirates were considered dirty, stinking, foul-mouthed, horny degenerates. Since that’s no longer the case, a pirate themed wedding wont be as horrifying to your guests and you can even have it on a boat or near the water and give the old church wedding a miss.
Pandora style Avatar-inspired wedding
James Cameron’s Avatar has been a worldwide success. And though most of us fell in love with the stunning special effects used in the movie, some of us found regular old earth and it regular old customs a little too bland after the avatar experience. That’s probably the reason why Avatar style weddings have been so popular and though the frequency of their occurrence have started to scare us a little, it could be just the perfect geeky theme that outdoes every Star Wars or gaming inspired themes.
