If you are a gamer or like anime and even Japanese culture, you may have dreamed of making a wedding themed of your favorite work. Others imagine that having a wedding like this can confuse and generate comments from those present.
Many gamers and otakus in an attempt to fulfill his dream of getting married, he ends up generating shame on others by going too far in his themed wedding parties. In this article we are going to talk a little about gamer and otaku marriage and how you can do it properly.
For some, the difficulties happen before finding the ideal partner. Although many gamers or otakus want to bond with people who have the same taste, this does not usually happen.
Even if your spouse doesn't like anime or games, there is still a way out to have a wedding as you've always dreamed of. One of the first mistakes is to imagine that a game and anime themed wedding needs to have cosplay or strong decoration.
You can have a themed wedding without even your spouse knowing what it is about. Just plan in a way that is acceptable to everyone present.
How it shouldn't be an otaku and gamer wedding
Liking anime characters or games too much causes some to cross the line and perform weddings the wrong way. Some find it difficult to find a person in their life, end up marrying a dakimakura pillow.
Others simply marry their virtual character through VR (virtual reality). Some women in Japan have already paid to have a wedding ceremony and party without a spouse.
If you are a gamer and otaku with a social life and a relationship, congratulations! Just be careful not to ruin your wedding by throwing a themed party too strong. I see no problem with doing something the way we like it, the problem is the guests.
Unfortunately most people do not share the same tastes, perhaps too many things can cause a culture shock to visitors. Not to mention the amount we would spend planning something very themed. Remember that the inspiration of the theme is a reflection of the couple's personality!
It is not legal to ask guests to wear clothes different from local customs. Perhaps family or friends can use some objects to highlight the theme of the wedding, things like cufflinks or clothing colors. We cannot make guests confused or uncomfortable. If it is possible, it is best to wear traditional wedding clothes, do not try to appear with poor quality cosplay clothes.
How can it be a themed wedding?
The first thing we can decide is the location. Will it be in a castle? Temple? Island? Forest? If this is your dream and desire, there are no limits! You can! With the place in mind, think of a decoration that highlights the work you want to base your marriage.
Nothing too colorful to look like children's parties. Try to say the wedding lines in a natural way, don't try to quote things outside the wedding just to look like a game or anime, let alone speak phrases in another language.
Invitations can be themed, you can use phrases and jargon that make sense with wedding. One of the best ways to enter the game or anime environment is through the beautiful soundtracks.
I personally have imagined my wedding several times with some game or anime music, but don't even think about putting songs sung outside the party. The ceremony needs to be something classic and traditional, some music on piano or violin, games and anime are full of them.
It is important to think about the guests, just because you and your spouse like a particular game or anime, you will not leave out the local and popular music and customs. The couple can rehearse some scene or dance related to game or anime to present to the public.
Just do not think about showing games or anime during the wedding, if you want to highlight the characters of the work, you can do it by means of a painting or cake decoration.
Zelda themed wedding
My friends Rodrigo Coelho and Caryn from the channel Coelho do Japão, fulfilled the dream by making a themed wedding of their favorite game: The Legend of Zelda. To end the article I would like to share this wedding. Rodrigo made a detailed video about this wedding and how it was planned, maybe it will help you plan yours. Before the video I will leave a message from him:
'STRENGTH, COURAGE AND WISDOM. We got married in a very loving environment and put our passions on this very special day to always be remembered! With a theme from our favorite franchise, The Legend of Zelda, we had a wedding in which Zelda fans would notice the details and who is not a fan, would just find it very beautiful, without knowing it was from games. This video is very personal and shows a very special moment in our lives, our gamer wedding, our nerdy wedding, our Zelda wedding! Hope you like it!'
