Keeping Things Simple With an 8-Bit Wedding

 |  |  |  |  |  |  October 23, 2009

How can you liven up the traditional wedding? True quirkiness goes beyond interesting dresses and video game cakes, as one California couple proved with their 8-bit DIY wedding theme. Forget a regular ol’ bouquet. Let’s get pixelated.

When a graphic designer and a video game programmer get married, this is what happens: a profusion of pixels. Not only did the bride walk down the aisle clutching the above bouquet, but the wedding also featured custom 8-bit cake toppers and jewelry for the wedding party.


Perhaps the best part? They made it all themselves. How better to control the exact outcome?

Of course, doing-it-yourself doesn’t always mean you’re saving money. Bride Donelle reports that working within a modest budget was one of the couple’s motivations for their custom wedding, but their DIY efforts cost more than expected. Looking at the final result, though, I’d say it was worth it.
