Wedding Themes To Consider Now That You Have More Time To Plan

Updated May 29, 2020

Let’s be honest, we all love a good bodorrio. We enjoy every aspect of it, from receiving the invitation to guessing what we will feast on to waiting to see who we will be sitting with. And, now that we are being brutalmente francos, let’s say it: we also love estar de criticones. Yes, even if it is our mejor amigocha or a beloved primo, we derive certain guilty pleasure in finding little kitschy details in the decoration or a tuxedo that doesn’t quite hide the groom’s panza chelera. We know that a wedding involves months of planning and most likely a lot of drama, and at the end the bride and groom, grooms or brides have the final say in how they want to celebrate and be introduced as a marriage for the first time. But let’s relax and indulge in our criticón attitude for a little while. Todo es en buena onda, we promise.

Here are some of the most out there themed weddings in the Latino world and beyond!

The classic DreamWorks movie received a royal treatment by this couple. It is romantic beyond words and honestly they look so happy being themselves, just like the movie’s fairy tale couple. At the end of the day Shrek is all about love being more important than looks, and we are all for that body possitivity message.

You definitely want to say yes to a pan dulce catered wedding for your big day.

Literally no one will ever be able to upstage you on the dance floor with these moves.

Wedding celebrations are a day to celebrate more than the love between you and your partner, but the roots and cultures that brought you two together. No doubt your indigenous roots have a big play in all of that. Put them on full display at your wedding by incorporating them in the celebrations.

Wes Anderson’s coming off age story is as cute and as hipster as it gets. It is about finding young love where you least expect it. The new wives are bien tiernas y hermosas. Felicidades.

The HBO hit show might be over, but the GOT obsession will continue for years and perhaps decades to come. The site where the reception was held called this event The Red Wedding… has anyone checked in on the guests?

Seriously, stop it with the Westeros obsession

The expression on that abue’s face says it all. She must be thinking “What the hell is all this?”. Even so, we admire her willingness to play the part!

We are guessing that the PlayStation will disappear como por arte de magia. The only buttons she has to press are hers. Que pase el desgraciado!

Hasta que la muerte los separe was never spoken more truly

We love us a Mexican themed wedding, but this Día de Muertos partaaay went a bit too far. They might have creeped out some of the guests! This couple is so cute that we might just put their photo on our own altares de muertos.

Hey honey, let’s build a Minecraft world just for the two of us

The computer game Minecraft is all about creating new worlds, right? So it sort of makes sense to start your life together in a Minecraft-themed party. OK, we tried to make up a reason for all this weirdness, we just hope they find time to take full advantage of their honeymoon and that they have some screen-free time.

Goth weddings son la onda, but we are sure that more than one older relative just felt like a fish out of water. We can only imagine all the primos dancing to Norwegian trash metal! Headbanging!

We would love to attend this goth wedding, though!

The thing about Gothic aesthetic is they can really pay attention to detail. That lace and leather cake looks sinfully delicious. Shall we get our velvet suit ready?

Pikachu is in da house!

There are millions of fans of the Pokemon universe the world over, and in Japan you can already get a very yellow and very cute Pikachu-themed wedding. We are sure that these events are full of gyms and rare monsters for Pokemon Go! players.

OMG. This looks as extravagant as it looks sort of cool. We are sure that was one wet “you can now kiss the bride” moment.

The Superbowl of all weddings! To be honest, this seems to be a bit show-offy for our taste. We hope that this dude actually spends weekends with his new bride and doesn’t vegetate in front of the TV watching sweaty men tackle each other.

We love the out-there attitude of these grooms. They look fantastic in their Emerald City attires and we just want to wish them a long yellow brick road to happiness.

LOTR weddings arrived in the early 2000s to stay and they are going nowhere. Just look at this massive anillo on the pastel de bodas. My precioussssss…

These two handsome fellas are totally smashing as the protagonists of Toy Story. We hope their life together is as dreamy as the Pixar universe!

Is marriage the Dark Side of the Force?

Weddings themed after La guerra de las galaxias are nothing new, but this couple decided to focus on the dark side and make their special day an homage to Lord Vader. Ay, nanita!

Seriously, is this a wedding or a kid’s birthday party? With all due respect, this is just too… much.

Owls, magic, rival schools… not a theme that we would think of as wedding-friendly. We know, however, that many couples have gotten together for being potterheads, so maybe this is a celebration of their wizardly love.

Can you imagine being famished and a bit tipsy and see those chocolates just fly away… daring you to catch them? Lo peor del mundo mundial.

A Bride Tested Positive For Covid Three Days Before Her Wedding So They Improvised

Your wedding day is something so many people plan for years. Things always come up that change plans or even ruin the whole day. One bride in California had a moment that could have ruined her big day but she made the most of it.

A bride in California tested positive for Covid three days before her wedding and that didn’t stop her.

Lauren Jimenez and Patrick Delgado were getting closer to their forever fairy tale and then Covid struck. Jimenez tested positive three days before getting married and it seemed like all chances of an in-person event were off. The bride and groom considered calling it off to protect the health of their loved ones until Jimenez had an idea.

“I was like maybe we can somehow get married with me in the window. It’ll be like a fairy tale, I guess,” Jimenez told ABC 7.

The wedding became a real-life fairy tale that looks so much like Rapunzel.

Instead of hair, Jimenez and Delgado got married using a rope that was tied together by her aunt. The rope connected the two while Jimenez sat at the window of her bedroom on the second story of her parents’ home. Delgado told NBC News that he was saddened when the wedding day approached because everything was being canceled due to Jimenez’s Covid diagnosis.

The wedding is being called one of the most 2020 weddings.

What do you do if you test positive three days before your wedding, but everyone else around you is negative? Let’s up…

The image of a bride and groom marrying while social distancing is the epitome of this crazy time for the world. While romantic and beautiful, the photos are a stunning reminder of the full scale of this viral outbreak and how much it has interrupted everyday life. Guests in the photographs are all wearing masks and there is no physical contact among anyone. It is a surreal sight to see a family come together for a distanced and contact-less wedding.

Cities and counties around the country are going back into lockdowns as cases start to surge. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti recently put the city back on a strict lockdown and told residents that it is “time to cancel everything.”

The Delgados’ wedding is a touching reminder of the power of love.

Nothing could keep these two from tying the knot and proclaiming their love to those closest to them. The wedding is one that everyone, not just the family, will remember for a very long time to come. Once the world moves forward and the vaccine is distributed we will all look back on the time we saw a woman get married from a bedroom window.

According to ABC 7, Jimenez went straight to bed right after the wedding was over. The couple is still distanced as the new wife recovers from the virus before reuniting with her husband.

Congratulations on your wedding! We wish you years of happiness.

Vanessa Bryant Said It Was ‘Love At First Sight’ When She First Met Kobe

Vanessa Bryant Said It Was ‘Love At First Sight’ When She First Met Kobe

Vanessa Bryant says love at first sight is very real.

The wife of the late NBA great recently revealed that it happened to her the very first time she met Kobe Bryant 21 years ago.

Over the weekend, Bryant shared a photo of her and the former LA Laker while visiting Disneyland.

Last Friday, Bryant celebrated the 21st anniversary of the day she and Kobe met. She captioned the Instagram post writing “Love at first sight 11/27/99 #21.”

Vanessa and Kobe met in 1999 during a music video shoot while she was still in high school and he was 20 years old. The couple became engaged when she turned 18, announced their engagement at her 18th birthday party, and the Bryants married in April 2001.

In 2013, Kobe shared a picture of the day they met on Instagram.

“On this day 20 years ago I met my best friend, my Queen @vanessabryant I decided to take her on a date to Disneyland tonight to celebrate old school style (pre 4princesses) I love you my mamacita per sempre,” Kobe wrote in the Instagram post at the time.

After their 2001 message, Kobe and Vanessa had four daughters together, Natalia, 17, Gianna, 13, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 1. Tragically, in January, Bryant and Gianna passed away in a helicopter crash alongside seven others.

Last year, Kobe also reflected on the day he met his “best friend,” posting a throwback pic along with the Disneyland snap.

“On this day 20 years ago I met my best friend, my Queen @vanessabryant,” he captioned his post at the time. “I decided to take her on a date to Disneyland tonight to celebrate old school style (pre 4princesses) I love you my mamacita per sempre.”

It’s not the first time Vanessa honored her husband since his death. In October, the former model and philanthropist honored her husband and daughter with tattoos.

Speaking about her loss, Vanessa’s friend La La Anthony told Entertainment Today that she’s done her best to stay strong.

“Well, you know, I’m a real friend, that’s what friends do,” Anthony told ET in September. “You know, you don’t dip out on your friends when it gets really hard. And she’s going through something that is unimaginable, that, you know, I can’t even fathom what that feels like. So, just to be a friend and be there to make her laugh when she needs to, cry when she needs to, is a beautiful thing. But that’s what friends do for each other, you know, so I’m always going to be there for her and the girls and just, you know, want to see her just continue to be strong and amazing.”
