From something borrowed to something blue, there are many fine details that are involved in planning a wedding. The Bridal Showcase will be in Salt Lake City Jan. 4-5, at the Salt Palace Ballroom located on 100 S West Temple. A $7 admission will allow any bride to check out wedding dresses, tuxedos, invitations, florists, photographers, reception centers and more. The Bridal Showcase will be open Friday from 3-8 p.m. with fashion shows at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. And on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. with fashion shows at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Each couple has their own style, yet some go for a style that may be considered a little over the top. Here is a list of some themed weddings that may seem a little wacky.
Tracey and Vivian Williams have been told by their friends that they look like Shrek and Fiona. This statement gave the couple the idea to dress up as the green ogres for their wedding ceremony.
The Williams saw “Shrek” on their first date, and according to The Daily Mail, Tracey Williams said the wedding theme fit her and her husband perfectly. The couple adorned themselves in green body paint, fake green ears and a bright red wig for Tracey.

April Pignataro and Michael Curry share a passion for the ocean, so they decided to seal the deal under water.
April wore a white wetsuit while Michael wore a black one, and the happy couple was lowered into a shark tank in a steel cage.
Pignataro and Curry spoke their vows into radio headgear which was then transmitted to the minister standing outside of the tank amidst the wedding guests who were watching the ceremony behind glass.
Bobbi VanZante and Elijah Slagter dressed as Mario and Princess Peach for a Super Mario Brothers themed wedding.
VanZante’s father was assigned to dress up as Bowser because, although he’s the villain of the game, the couple figured he was the best character to “give her away.” The ceremony was decorated with turtle shells made of out bicycle helmets to add to the ambiance.
Abigail Kirk and Andy Weeks didn’t have to make many decisions for their wedding because it was already planned on the big screen in the Twilight movie “Breaking Dawn: Part 1.”
While preparing for their big day, Kirk and Weeks decided to legally change their last names to Cullen. Nearly every detail of the wedding including the flowers, tables and menu designs were copied from the film.
Even the songs that were played were chosen from the “Breaking Dawn” soundtrack. Before the wedding, Kirk contacted Alfred Angelo, a designer in Florida who created a replica of Bella’s dress.
She found out the replica wouldn’t arrive until after her wedding day, but Angelo told her there was a dress similar to Bella’s not yet available to the public at a store nearby Kirk’s home. Abigail wore a different dress for the ceremony but changed into her “Breaking Dawn” dress for the reception. Weeks also wore a suit similar to Edward’s.
It is popular among some hard core Star Trek fans to get married in the Klingon language.
And for others wearing Star Trek garb or getting married on a Starship Enterprise replica is the thing that makes their wedding magical.

Some people like to shop for bargains, and some people love it so much they result back to the classic kindergarten insult, "If you love it so much, why don't you marry it?"
The couple in this video clip loves shopping at TJ MAXX so much they decided to get married in the shoe aisle.
