Superhero Wedding Ideas for the Bride

A lot of comic books are renowned for their vibrant, punchy colours, so you too could opt for a splash of bright colour as a subtle (or not so subtle) nod to your favourite character, or just pick the comic’s colour scheme and stick to it. Batman’s black and yellow looks magnificent when reworked into a New Year’s Eve style black and yellow colour scheme, or even a more metallic black and gold. Or you could even dress up completely if that’s the look and fun vibe you’re going for.

A very elegant alternative is to run with a masquerade ball wedding theme. After all, a lot of superheroes wear masks!

On the other hand, brides who want to stick to a more traditional wedding gown can get the superhero treatment with a wedding dress that incorporates a stunning cape or cloak.

When it comes to shoes, the same thing applies. You can either go big and bold with chunky heels or casual Converse pumps decorated with your favourite superheroes, or opt for the classic white heels with a symbol to show off your passion.

For the flowers, from the bouquet to the corsages to even the floral decor, an easy way to spin your wedding flowers to your superhero theme is to pick them with care (for example, choose them based on a colour scheme of a favourite superhero) or to hide a small action figure or memento within.

Superhero Wedding Ideas for the Groom

The groom can dress dapper like Bruce Wayne for a subtle, more traditional wedding look (perhaps with some themed cuff links to finish off?), but he too can express his love of superheroes with brightly-coloured shirts or suspenders, socks, or a tie.

While the bride and bridesmaids can carry figurines in their bouquets or in their corsages, the groom and his groomsmen can decorate their lapels with a super boutonniere or finish with a themed tie clip.

Superhero Decor Ideas

A sweet superhero-inspired cake and/or cake topper may be all you could wish for in your comic book inspired wedding, but you could also spread your theme across your wedding reception tables with themed table numbers or centrepieces. You could also let your guests have some fun with themed photo booth props, which are a must-have for fun wedding photos.

Superhero Backdrops

If you have the means and money to travel for a wedding abroad, you may wish the backdrop of your own wedding to be a big city like New York. Imagine it’s Metropolis, Superman-style.

Or, if you’re a particular fan of heroes like Thor or the Guardians of the Galaxy, look to the stars. Have an observatory as your wedding venue, or choose your setting so that, at night, you and your guests will be treated to glorious starry views.
