a tale of two weddings on Offbeat Wed (formerly Offbeat Bride)

Offbeat partners: Lyndsay & Patrick

Date and location: Old Line Spirits and Charm City Meadworks , 06/16/2022

Our two weddings at a glance:

Our first wedding was the “family-friendly” wedding. It included all-DIY decor, mainly in the form of glittered wine bottles that we stockpiled during quarantine; a re-design of the groom’s mother’s vintage 1969 wedding gown (done by a friend for cost of materials); live ceremony music provided by the bride’s former bandmates (songs were “The Book of Love” for the wedding party and “The First Time It Happens” from The Great Muppet Caper); a unity ceremony where we “cut the Gordian knot,” which contained our rings.

Our “Secret Second Wedding” included a second re-designed vintage dress, in a completely different style, by the same friend; individual “floats” for our processional built by another friend; a “duoship ceremony” for which we created supervillain personas (King Bee and The Brown Recluse) and were pronounced Villain and Villainess by “Elvis”; walking on glass for our unity ceremony; exchanging shots of whiskey instead of rings.
