Nerds, geeks and the ‘intellectually curious’ number around 60 million in the US. Like everyone else, they consider their wedding day to be one of life’s most important events. If you’re eyeing a nerdy wedding to share something that truly represents who you are with family and friends, it is important to plan well for what is probably going to be the most unforgettable day of your life.

Use Tech To Arrange Your Wedding

Preparing a wedding event is also considered one of the most stressful events in life. However, don’t let this put you off, and use technology to do the work for you. From shopping for an engagement and wedding rings to getting down on your knee to pop the famous question, anything can go wrong – as many celebrity couples can attest to. You might misplace the ring, get an unexpected answer, or simply lose your nerves. Once you’re planning the wedding, it’s easy to lose track of appointments and get overwhelmed as well.     

To organize your time and avert disaster, use services such as Google Calendar, which offers the ability to insert appointments into your calendar from an email. You can even coordinate with the future groom, your family, friends, and the wedding entourage by sending them reminders. In addition, it is easy to sync appointments from your computer to your smartphone so that you can update all meetings and to-do lists while on the go.

Even wedding registries can be managed online. Zola, which is an online wedding planner, allows you to build your own wedding website and registry for free. According to the Newlywed Report 2020, 79% of respondents created a wedding site to share the plans and details with their guests. Make your own gorgeous and personalized invites, and list what you would like to get for your day.  

Keep Your Themed Wedding Reasonable

It is so easy to get carried away when designing a geeky wedding.  However, unless all your guests are nerdy, some will probably feel overwhelmed at a strong geeky theme. Hence, it is best not go overboard and keep it low key. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to add a splash of geek to your wedding. Try themed collections for your invitations or wedding favors. You can also accessorize your wardrobe with nerdy items such as custom cuff links, a Super Mario garter or a comic book bouquet. Themes such as Alice in Wonderland, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars or Avengers are popular, and you can easily dress up as your favorite characters.

Borrow Lines From Your Favorite Movies

If you prefer to keep your wedding simple, but would still like to express your inner nerd, prepare your wedding vows with some borrowed quotes from much-loved shows. Although some lines may sound corny, they at least reveal your love for these movies. Take inspiration from Ripley’s, “I will never leave you. That’s a promise,” or try an opening line from Arwen in Lord of the Rings, telling your other half, “I would rather share one lifetime with you than face ages of this world alone,” before exchanging rings. How about Arwen & Aragorn’s dialogue in ‘The Fellowship of the Ring,’ when Arwen asked, “Do you remember when we first met?” to which Aragorn replied, “I thought I had wandered into a dream.”

Planning a geeky wedding is not that difficult, but it may become challenging at times if you don’t know what you want. To get the best results, use technology to organize your wedding, keep your geeky theme modest, and add memorable quotes when reciting your vows.
