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.

Great Collection - and I must confess that we, too, had such in thing. In a castle, no less! Janet, my wife, slaved for months working on our outfits as well as Star Wars Imperial Officer Uniforms for a serious fan film that is being made in Canada. An amazing effort, to be certain. Concerning our wedding video, the music is a track from a Star Trek episode where Picard lives a lifetime in 20 minutes and learns how to play the flute. Of interest, the lady that is performing the service is Elena Young from BeyondTheOrdinary.net! Though she looks GREAT as a Jedi, I feel should would make a wonderful Romulan as well - hahaha. Though we own a number of the Master Replicas lightsabers, for one reason or another, we decided not to include them in the wedding. Seeing all the action in the Geek Wedding video, I sort of feel like we should have worked them in anyway.

Ummmm .. OK .. anyone know why the video would include outfits that are merely a specific country's formal attire? Around the 1:07 mark there's a groom and all his groomsmen wearing kilts. What's so geeky about that? I could see it if their faces were painted like Braveheart or something, but they're simply wearing Scottish attire. Why not also include an Indian wedding where the bride is wearing a sari? Or kimonos at a japanese wedding? Or a German wedding with all the guys in Lederhosen? Oh, wait. Forget that last one.

and it never crossed my mind to think Geek. Now if everyone dressed up as StarWars or Star Trek characters.... American Cosplay
