So you want a zombie wedding photo of you and your wedding party, but don’t want to mess up your dress or hair and makeup. Groom Josiahx posted a video on how he “zombified” his wedding party and turned himself and his bride into zombie slayers. “we had our photographer grab a shot of everyone in their best zombie pose,” says Josiahx, “So, I decided to do a bit of Photoshop, and timelapse it!”
You may have noticed that my little blog got a new look today. I wanted to clean up the design and change out the header photo, but the main reason was the old look somehow broke on that web address and wouldn’t update through the control panel. I couldn’t switch out the featured slider images or change the design other than add new posts and widgets. I even tried re-installing the same theme with no luck, and in the end, I had to switch from whengeekswed.com/blog1 to whengeekswed.com/blog (which also redirects to whengeekswed.com).
Here is what has changed with the new design:
A New Header And Logo
New Social Media Buttons: I added StumbleUpon, Reddit, Buffer and Delicious buttons to the bottom of the posts.
Removed Large Ad Banner

Do You Take Marriage Seriously? That is the question being asked in the article “3 Reasons You Shouldn’t Have A Movie-Themed Wedding“. Mainly focusing on the “alarming” Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games themed wedding trends; the author writes, “you know what is real and should be taken seriously? Your marriage. And there’s something about basing the most important relationship of your life on a fairy tale that spells trouble for the future. ” What does a Tiffany or diamond themed wedding say about a marriage? I’m in it for the money. It’s your day, your money so why not celebrate your union your way.
One item I always see on a gift registry is a mixer. So why get a plain, ordinary white or black KitchenAid mixer when you can gift the happy couple something truly unique for their big day.
Nicole Dinardo of Un Amore can turn your ordinary KitchenAid mixer into a unique work of art. The custom, hand painted, one of a kind KitchenAid Mixers are redefining custom couture and redecorating kitchens everywhere. Nicole says she, “enjoys the challenging KitchenAid curves, using her natural abilities and vision to bring clients ideas to life. Every custom painted KitchenAid mixer has an artistic pulse all it’s own.”
My interview with Gaming Angels, the premier online community where women go for all things geek!…

The site has great geeky party themes as well, there is definitely something for everyone. When Geeks Wed is joining the She’s Geeky Inc network of sites and I want to introduce everyone to Cassandra!
GamingAngel: Tell us a little about yourself – would you consider yourself a gamer? What are some of your favorite geeky things? What are you playing lately?
Housewares are one of the most requested gifts on a registry and If your going to be attending an alternative wedding, or looking for a gift that will stand out from the crowd, Alt.Home has you covered. The first and only alternative homeware brand, Alt. Home, is the provider of unconventional products for an alternative home, helping you express your identity through more than just your clothing. Launched in February 2012 Alt. Home, based out of East Sussex, England; was founded by an alternative couple who wanted to fill a gap they found while trying to furnish their own home in the style they loved.
“The brand will launch with two products in a selection of designs, chosen to reflect current alternative trends. But plenty more is in the pipeline, the ultimate aim to provide a hub for unusual wares for all living spaces. For the launch range we have opted to start with soft furnishings- simple touches that can make a big differences to anyone’s home. We created a twist on the classic white pillowcase across four pairs of distinct designs (which may also be purchased as singles), along with two pairs of designs on stylish cushion covers – perfect for the sofa, bed, chairs… We plan to add a variety of new homeware products over time, so keep checking back for more!”
Website relaunch! When Geeks Wed has moved from whengeekswed.blogspot.com to whengeekswed.com. One of the biggest reasons for this change was the fact that Pinterest’s pin it buttons don’t work correctly in Blogger, or at least I couldn’t get them to work, so I changed to WordPress. Of course nothing ever goes smoothly and you may have noticed that we are missing a lot of posts. This is because the blogger importer brought in all the photos as thumbnails instead of at their normal full resolution size. So I have hidden the posts that I haven’t had a chance to update, painfully by hand, but they should all be up by this Monday.
I hope you enjoy the new site and look forward to hearing your feedback. Don’t forget to update any links to the old site and redirect them here. In addition, because of the domain change I am extending our free advertising campaign until May 1st! More details here.
