I think I will probably cement my geekiness by saying this, but I have a lot of love for people who have wedding themes and are willing to work hard to carry them through. We have a bit of a theme in that we’ve got some video game/sci fi elements in our reception, but for the most part we’re just picking things we like and trying to work them together in a way that looks nice.
Anyway, I’ve been reading the blog posts of the lovely Miss Lovebug and Miss Petunia whose typewriter and Monopoly themes I absolutely love and it got me to thinking about what might make for a good theme wedding.
What is cool and fun but would lend itself to different elements of a wedding? I was racking my brain when I checked my Facebook account and my mystery theme stared right back at me in the form of a Scrabulous* request. Scrabble!
So today, because I think it’s too cool to pass up, and because I’m kind of at a standstill with my own wedding planning, I present to you lovely Weddingbee readers Miss Hummingbird’s Fabulous Scrabulous Wedding!
If you’re going to plan a wedding, to keep your tiles and thoughts in order, you’re going to need a planner.

Once you get your planning in gear, you’re definitely going to need invitations . . .
Invite from The Paper Crown.
And when your invitated guests arrive at the wedding, they can sign your awesome Scrabble guestbook!

You can give your hubby Scrabble cufflinks for his suit . . .
Cufflinks from Gr0glmann’s Retro Classic Cufflinks.
(FYI – They have a lot of cool toy/boardgame themed cufflinks if anyone is in the market for some.)
Deck your girls out in some Scrabble Necklaces . . .

Bling out your bouquet with a Scrabble charm . . .

And exchange Scrabble rings with your beloved!

Then, after the ceremony you can give your guests little Scrabble magnet favours

And last but not least, sugar them up with your awesome Scrabble cake!
Cake from Pink Cake Box
Not only does it look cool, but it’s an awesome theme for boardgame enthusiasts, writers and word lovers alike! (And seriously, how cool does that cake look?)
Since I love this kind of stuff and since I’m eager to hear about other people’s wedding plans, I want to know – What is your fantasy wedding theme and/or what theme are you using for your wedding?
(* = Maybe it’s just me, but everytime I play Scrabulous, I end up singing a song about it to the tune of Fergie’s “Glamorous” – “If you ain’t got no tiles, take yo’ dumb ass home, S-C-R-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!”)
