Bride Asks Guests To Wear Their Old Bridal Gowns For Unique Wedding.

The happy couple spent months trying to make their wedding as nontraditional as possible.

Even the mothers of the bride and groom played a different role in the wedding as the flower girls. They weren't too keen on the idea at first, but eventually, they came around. “Once I got over they the unconventional aspect, I had a lot of fun. It surpassed my own wedding as the best wedding ever!” said Sylvia Stearnes, Audrey's mother.

Once the happy couple said "I Do," the wedding took a quick turn.

Following the ceremony, all of the guests changed into costumes and the food was brought out. Not only did they have a snack bar (thanks to their shared love of movies) but they also had a fry bar and 18 different wedding cakes prepared by the guests! "Normally at rehearsal dinners you just sit there awkwardly, so we wanted something more active and engaging that would blend the two families together. Also, my mom is a master cake decorator! This activity allowed both sides to get a sense of each other’s personalities and mingle and talk about something interesting and fun," Audrey said.

After an award's ceremony, which included awards for Best Dog Not in Attendance and Best Great-Grandfather, it was time for the fun to begin.

While they were dressed up in their costumes, guests were encouraged to play games! The happy couple brought in some old school Pac-Man, The Simpsons, and even Skeeball!

It's really no surprise that everyone has smiles on their faces in the pictures.

Who doesn't want to go to a wedding where there are costumes, snack bars, and video games? It seems like this couple really knows how to have a good time.

But they couldn't have done it without the support they received from their friends.

"We’re lucky to have an incredible group of creative friends who helped us put this whole thing together, including all of my groomsmen who showed up at the crack of dawn to help me design and construct a ceremony that would be fitting for a dozen brides. It’s hard to stand out when everyone is wearing a wedding dress, but when I saw Audrey’s dress I was blown away. I can’t wait for her to find an occasion to wear it again, and I hope this inspires other brides to do the same!” said Jesse.
