I don’t know a whole lot about comics, so when a request came in for a Comic Con edition of Wedding Inspiration, I had a bit of research to do….and now I’m LOVING comic books as inspiration for a wedding. I would dress my bridesmaids in bright colors and gold shoes and let my groomsmen wear little details like Batman cuff links, or rock their favorite superhero tee under their tux.

Ok, so the super hero cake may seem like a bit much, but it would make a totally awesome grooms cake – or you could do superhero cupcakes! And how amazeballs are the save the dates that look like comic book covers?!

I would also have to doll up my bridesmaids in these comic inspired headbands from Etsy seller Janine Basil. Available in boom, bam, pow, kapow, and zing! I think if I were the bride I’d ditch the traditional veil for a rhinestoned headband too. At least for the reception anyways. It’s so fun!

So, I hope this offers a bit of inspiration for all of you comic book fiends out there! Don’t be afraid of bold colors and funky designs! And don’t forget to have a ton of fun with planning!

  • Speech bubble headbands?! Too much fun! I like the rhinestones… now I just need to come up with something clever!

  • Man, would have LOVED to do this. I hope one of my geek girls gets married soon and rocks something similar. And the cake totes isn't over the top. It's smashing (haha, get it? …)

  • Man, that has to be my favorite groomsmen shot in a long time. Normally, I'm not a big fan, but that. Is. Awesome.

    Oh my gosh, I’m LOVING this idea! I can’t pull it off…but I still love the headbands, the colors, and those cute red flats!

    Omg I love the picture of the girls pulling open the grooms shirts and revealing their superhero alter egos! I might have to do something like that even though it has nothing to do with my theme. I love those speech bubble headbands too! I might even use those for my friend's upcoming couple's shower.

    Love, love and LOVE! Love the groomsmen idea but want my girls to rock their inner super hero too. Your idea lead me to this site – http://www.superherostuff.com/characters/Babydoll/Babydoll.html
    Luckily, we are having a very casual celebration and will enjoy incorporating all of the great ideas!

  • I think I'd ditch my veil for "I hope Brad will understand" during the reception. Hilarious! (Though maybe not if you actually know (or have dated!) someone named Brad….)

    That Bat Man cake looks exactly like my friends cake.
