From deciding what the hell you’re going to wear to choosing which people to invite – and don’t even get me started on whether everyone’s going to get along – the day has the potential to go south. And quickly.
Which is why sometimes themed weddings can seem like the way to go: the dress code is easy to follow so you don’t have to stress about what to wear, and it makes a statement your wedding guests are unlikely to forget anytime soon.
We just cannot get on board with Pokemon-themed weddings, which are now apparently a thing in Japan. In fact, they’re more than just themed weddings – they’re something which have been thought up by The Pokemon Company.
As reported by Kotaku, the company recently teamed up with ESCRIT – a Japanese company specialising in wedding ceremonies – to start offering officially licensed Pokemon weddings. They really leave no stone unturned.
There are even two Pikachu mascots, one for the bride and the groom, whose purpose I’m not really sure of. Did they walk the bride down the aisle? Did one serve as the groom’s best man? Did they serve the food?! Who even knows at this point?
You can see the full range of pictures on the Japanese Pokemon website.
