You know how you have that great wedding idea, but then you look around and you’re like, “If I can just find one person doing what I want to do and making it look awesome, I’ll have the courage to make it happen?” Start with the rad girl crew above. I love a good jumpsuit. In fact, I practically live in them. So the idea of outfitting a bridal party all in jumpsuits always seemed rad… in my head. But I had no real idea of how good (or awful) it would look in real life. So, can you imagine my face when I saw this gang in ALL WHITE JUMPSUITS? I think we can file this idea under “actually way better than expected.” (Also, P.S. Can someone take this idea up a notch and style your ladies in this amazing red jumpsuit? Send pictures.)
We spend a lot of time publishing our best wedding and marriage (and feminist) related articles for you right here. But over on APW’s Instagram we spend our days publishing pictures. Namely, the best wedding ideas we can find in image form, from all over the Internet. And for those of you who aren’t following APW on Instagram yet (why? Come join the party!), we thought we’d round up our favorite wedding ideas of 2017, so far…
Say it with Neon: So you want a custom neon sign without the PRICE of a custom neon sign? Who doesn’t. Slay all day with EL wire and Lucite. Check out our tutorial here, and then proceed with the all-day slayage.
Ombre Gown: Make Prince proud and reign on with a jaw-dropping purple ombre gown that makes fairytale princesses jealous.

Glitter Ice Mold: Ever find yourself wondering how to get MORE glitter into your day? No? Just us. Cool. Well if you do decide you need more glitter check out this DIY we did with Crate and Barrel where we created a glitter-packed ice mold. Functional and sparkly, y’all.
Pink Jewels: There’s no such thing as too much pink, so an everyday pink ring? Hell yeah. Bonus points for the secret “loved” inscription on the side!
Embellished Heels: Ever wish your shoes could have a lil extra flair? We firmly believe in sparkling head to toe, and clearly we’re in excellent company (hi, Alexander McQueen ). Bezaddled DIY heels? Glittering shoes? We’re into the ENTIRE concept.
Modern and Tropical Cakes: Excuse me, is that Lucite on your geometric tropical cake? With proteas behind it? Is this heaven? No, but really, this cake is just right for the people who aren’t afraid to be bold.

Disco Fever: We originally suggested a wedding at magical rainbow-inspired San Francisco pop-up Color Factory—but we don’t know if anyone’s actually managed to pull it off (yet). However, we have seen a few engagement shoots on our feed! Seriously y’all, when life builds you a photo shoot backdrop… schedule your photog and make things happen!
Galactic Love Affair: Sorry, is that a lightsaber arch? We’re a sucker for a nerdy wedding exit.
