Doctor Who Wedding

As someone who is in the middle of planning a wedding, I thought it would be interesting to see what is out there for a Doctor Who themed wedding. Let me tell you, there is a lot. Simply searching the phrase ‘Doctor Who wedding’ on Pinterest brings up ideas galore. Then if you want to search for specific items, even more ideas pop up.

First, you must have a way to invite people to your wedding.

There are tons of ideas for Doctor Who themed wedding invitations out there. From ones of the TARDIS, to ones using Circular Gallifreyan, to ones with quotes from the show. You will not be short on ideas for these.

 

Table decorations are next on the list of wedding items some may want to include in their wedding planning.

Flowers 1

Once again, you will not be short on ideas here. There are ideas on the more complicated side, such as this one, or there are much simpler ideas such as sunflowers in a blue vase (a reference to the episode “Vincent and the Doctor”), and everything in between.

And while we’re looking at flowers, you can’t forget the bride’s bouquet.

Bouquet 1

The most popular idea, by far, is to incorporate a sonic screwdriver into the bride’s bouquet. Then out of those bouquets with a sonic screwdriver in them, most of the time they were used as you see here, as the base part.

 

Now for the cake. Everyone loves a good cake.

Cake 1

There are so many ideas for a Doctor Who themed cake on Pinterest. Granted, some of the ones that came up in my search were birthday cakes or not specifically wedding, but you could turn them into a wedding cake with a few minor adjustments. There were also a lot of fandom crossovers on the cakes like with Doctor Who and Star Wars for example.

 

The happy couple often have their own set of Mr. and Mrs. glasses at the reception, and there are some different options out there for Doctor Who fans.

Glasses 1

These glasses were one of the first to pop up, but there were also glasses that read “Timelord” and “Companion,” “I love you with both my hearts,” or simply had images of the TARDIS or different characters on them.

If you have cute glasses, you’re going to need something to go in them.

Drink 1

This idea came up when I was searching for a different item, but it went perfectly with the glasses above so I had to include it. There’s even some Daleks on the back wine bottle.

 

Last, but not least. Could anyone really have a Doctor Who wedding without a TARDIS?

TARDIS 2

I think a TARDIS is definitely needed. There are many DIY ideas out there for making your very own TARDIS, and it is a great addition to any event, especially a Doctor Who wedding.

 

There are tons and tons of other Doctor Who wedding ideas out there and they are perfect for any dedicated Whovian that wants to show their love of the show on one of the biggest days of their lives.

Doctor Who, but WHY?

I began this class with a preconceived dislike of Doctor Who. This was simply because my best friends in high school were all overly obsessed with Doctor Who. This drove me completely insane and caused me to become annoyed when they spoke about this amazing Doctor. I would tune out the numerous stories about the diverse adventures he went on with his very different companions. I would get so angry that they were talking about this series that I would get up in the middle of the conversation and walk the other way. As you could have guessed I have always been a “late bloomer” when it comes to the latest fads. Many examples include setting up Netflix and Snapchat accounts, downloading Trivia Crack, or Flappy Birds, and even buying a fidget spinner. Thus, leading me to jumping on the Grey’s Anatomy bandwagon years too late. And now causing me to jump onto the Doctor Who bandwagon over fifty years too late.

This revelation has taken me quite a while to admit out loud because of my long-lasting hatred of Doctor Who. It took me through the whole first season and watching the regeneration of the Ninth Doctor into the Tenth Doctor and 3 days after that season finale to finally admit that I enjoyed watching Doctor Who. Another reason it took me so long to come to this realization was because the first season of the new Doctor Who started out slow obviously with the many (re)introductions of all the characters from Daleks and Cybermen, all the way up to the Ninth Doctor and his companion Rose, whom audiences were meeting for the first time.

However, it eventually pulled me in, especially when I realized that there was a bit of romance blooming between Rose and the Doctor. Every single time that I was watching an episode I would be rooting for a kiss, although I know that this romance had some backlash when it was first release. But I am someone that likes a bit of drama, I really liked the flirtatious chemistry between the two and I am ready for season two and finding out if the regeneration causes a shift in the obvious chemistry between Rose and the Doctor and to obviously follow their many new adventures.

Now let me send you off with one of my favorite quotes from season one and a meme to describe how much I, now, enjoy watching Doctor Who. My quote occurred in the second episode of the first season and happens when the Doctor is avenging the death of his friend, Jabe, by letting Cassandra dry up and die (or so we think). The Doctor says, “Everything dies, everything has their time.” I think he should have restated this when he was getting ready to regenerate because it was such a good and emotional line. I believe that is why I was so stuck on it when I was watching this whole season. Now on to my meme, which describes how I have recently jumped on the Doctor Who bandwagon:
