While others hear the tune of “Here comes the bride” in their heads upon receiving a wedding invitation, guests with an uncontrollable sweet tooth hear it as “Here comes the cake”! Whether you’re at a wedding because you’re the bride or groom or just a guest, many will agree that cake time is the best time. Wedding cakes add central aesthetic value to any wedding. Couples always want it to look as gorgeous as the rest of the venue decorations and thematic outfits.
Now imagine what happens if the bride and the groom both tend to lean toward the nerdy side and belong to the same huge fan base. Indeed, there are couples who did not settle for a rustic semi-naked cake. They jumped right in and had a Star Wars wedding cake designed for them, complete with Imperial walkers on top! There are lovebird nerds who like to embrace not only their adoring spouse but also their complete and total geekiness. And what better way than with their wedding cake? One can only wonder what sort of matching themes the weddings had behind these cakes.
No one will remember another flowery, white wedding cake, but they definitely won’t forget a Nintendo wedding cake. For more of these interesting, real-life wedding cakes, here is a list of nineteen of the coolest, nerdiest wedding cakes ever! Forget bows, boxes, and pastel: these newlyweds ditched the conventional cake designs to create unique, super geeky creations, from edible Lego towers to Super Mario toppers, and Star Wars figures. Grab a fork; it’s going to get messy.

Each and every one of these wedding cakes is a masterpiece. They may come across as weird for some folks, but what’s important is that these wedding cakes perfectly represent the couple whose marriage is the reason for the celebration. At the end of the day, the best wedding cake inspiration comes from the bride and groom (or bride and bride, or groom and groom, or any other combination out there) themselves. If you’re a nerd couple yourselves and are tired of the gigantic, white, rose-covered, beribboned mountain of buttercream for a wedding cake, why not opt for a quirky design that best describes both of you? That would sound like an unforgettable wedding day.
