Video: Ultimate geek weddings

Contrary to popular opinion, geeks do date, fall in love, and even get married--they just do it <strong><em>very</em></strong> differently than the average, traditional, muggle population. This little musical video montage of various uber-geek weddings is all the proof you need.

In this space, I may have previously criticized those who undertook a nontraditional theme to their wedding ceremonies (mostly because the folks who do it do it badly). But if you're willing to follow up the ultimate act of geek love with a long-term commitment, and both you and your significant other can be identified as one of the 56 primary geek species, then this video to Wonderstruck's "Geek Like Me" may be just the visual aid you need to hand over to your wedding planner. Just remember, this is going to be a moment—and a photo set—you'll look back on for the rest of your lives. Spring for the good costumes.
