Wonder Woman Wedding
As this year’s Comic-con comes to a close, we thought there was no better way to celebrate than to bring you this SUPER special styled wonder woman wedding.
If you’re a true fan of all things superhero and want to feel powerful on your wedding day, then you’ll want to get behind this Superman and Wonder Woman wedding. DIY elements are written all over this shoot which allows for individual interpretation and creativity to illuminate the most custom wedding ever!
Looking for more Comic inspired weddings? Check out this styled session filled with Aquaman Wedding ideas.
The design for the shoot was carefully planned by Cristina Galvan of Hermosa Weddings and Events to keep true to Wonder Woman´s and Superman´s characters and to the comic books they originated from. Many elements were DIY or easy to find at a low cost. Planning ahead and looking for deals at local stores is a must. From finding the Justice League figurines to finding the Superman puzzle to finding the blue foiled paper for the DIY table name to finding the comic book WHAM sign to finding the crystals and to finding the gold framed chalkboard for the DIY signature drinks display. Wonder Woman’s lasso which was used throughout the design including surrounding the sweetheart table arrangement is another DIY element that can be easily recreated by any DIY couple. These and more low cost and DIY items were among the design elements that perfectly fit the theme.
The dress was a showstopper. It is a custom design from Deborah Lindquist who designs Eco Couture for the modern bride. Wonder Woman wouldn’t be complete without her gold accessories and this is a great opportunity to get creative and find unique pieces at local thrift stores to fit the theme.
They opted for fresh florals provided by Gabriela Turney of Bridezilla Events which were used at the reception and ceremony to create a glam feel to this superhero affair. To spice it up, you can easily spray paint greenery with gold paint and hand dye white roses blue to carry the color palette throughout the event.
The custom built hexagonal ceremony backdrop was handmade by the talented Gonzalez Productions and Rentals, which was the perfect setting for Diana Prince and Clark Kent to share their marriage nuptials.

From the Planner – Cristina
For numerous hours, I planned for the Wonder Woman Marries Superman styled wedding shoot because of my love for Superman. I like to think that I am the biggest Superman fan out there! As a child, my brothers had their comic book collections and, of course, Superman was part of their collection. I loved reading the Superman comics. I have also gone to the San Diego Comic Con many times and guess who I have cosplayed as? Since I am a girl, I have cosplayed as Supergirl but I have also cosplayed as a female version of Clark Kent. At Comic Con, I have waited in line for many, many hours just to be able to see Henry Cavill speak about his role as Superman. I have been to two Comic Con panels where he is there and both times I was fascinated and thrilled to actually be sitting in the same room as him. He is a talented actor and he is the perfect Superman!
I am SUPER glad DC has filmed various superhero movies because it means I get to see Superman on the big screen! I always get tickets for the opening weekend for all the DC movies: Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Woman and Justice League. I watched each movie at least three times on the big screen before they went to DVD and of course I own them now. And yes, I did cosplay for the Man of Steel and Batman v Superman movies because Superman was in both.
I am also now fascinated by Wonder Woman. She was such a badass in the Wonder Woman movie! Just like Superman, she has a huge heart, is extremely courageous, and full of powerful strength. I think they are perfect for each other! This is what inspired me to come up with the perfect superhero theme for the styled shoot: Wonder Woman Marries Superman. The design and styling I did fit the Wonder Woman Marries Superman theme in many ways. I chose to use the colors of white, gold, red, and blue with touches of yellow throughout the design because these are the colors that represent Wonder Woman and Superman. White because Superman’s Fortress of Solitude is in the snow. Red and blue because both of their costumes have these colors. Gold because Wonder Woman’s lasso of truth is gold and both of their costumes have touches of either gold or yellow.
Superman was represented throughout the design along with Clark Kent and Kal-El. I chose to use crystals because Superman’s Fortress of Solitude is full of crystals. Crystals were incorporated on the dinner table, sweetheart table, on the lounge area end table, on the cake table, on the ceremony backdrop, and on the ceremony aisle candelabras. The hexagon shape throughout the design was chosen because, in my planning stages, I ran into someone’s artwork online of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude and some of the tops of the crystals were shaped as hexagons. Hence, the hexagonal ceremony backdrop, the seating chart with hexagons, and the votive candle holders in the bar area that had hexagon shaped tops. I also used diamonds in the shape of squares in the design for the mirrors on the sweetheart table, dinner table, cake table, and on the lounge area ottoman. This is because Superman’s logo is diamond shaped. To represent Clark Kent as a reporter, I used an antique typewriter for the welcome table that displayed a message to guests from Diana and Clark. To represent Kal-El, I chose to name his signature drink Kryptonite. Of course, the drink would be green and that is why I used green letters for this drink on the signature drink display that was on top of the bar.
Wonder Woman was represented throughout the design along with Diana, Princess of Themyscira. Lassos were on the sweetheart table, dinner table, welcome table on the antique typewriter, tied around the three belly bars in the bar area, and tied around five places for the cake backdrop. I did use two different colored lassos. The cake backdrop that A Better Party and Design provided had five bright gold lassos because Wonder Woman’s lasso of truth turns bright gold when being used on someone. The other lassos were a dull gold because Wonder Woman’s lasso of truth isn’t bright when it’s not being used. To also represent Wonder Woman, I folded the napkins in the shape of a sword and placed them inside of a gold ring holder to help give it the sword look. I did this because she uses a sword when she fights. To represent Diana, Princess of Themyscira, I chose to name her signature drink Paradise Island since Themyscira has also been known as Paradise Island. The drink would be red because I also thought about red Kryptonite which is associated with Kal-El. This is why I used red letters for this drink on the signature drink display that was on top of the bar.
I incorporated comics in the design because both Superman and Wonder Woman originated from comic books. The dinner table name was named THOOM! because it’s a comic book exclamation and action word that can be used for a fighting scene. I placed the word THOOM! inside of a bubble because bubbles are seen in comic books. The seating chart that Boxed Wedding Invitations created had table names of various comic book exclamations and action words that I ran into in the planning stages. The table names I chose were BAMM!, BOOOOOOM!, THRUTH!, KRAK!, BRRAK-KOOOM!, and THOOM! all al these tables had characters like Martha Kent, Lois Lane, and Etta Candy. Also, the lounge area ottoman showed pieces of a Superman and Action Comics puzzle. Action Comics is an American comic book series that first introduced Superman in 1938. I also incorporated comics in the caravan photobooth that Gonzalez Productions and Rentals provided. Inside of it, I hung comic book pages of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and Robin with red and yellow clothes pins. Inside of the caravan, I displayed a WHAM! sign. I also incorporated comics for the sweetheart table chair names. I placed the Wonder Woman and Superman logos inside bubbles and hung them from each corresponding chair.
I included all the Justice League characters in the design. This is because both Wonder Woman and Superman are part of the Justice League. All the six characters were displayed inside of the caravan photo booth as small figurines. Also, they were all in the seating chart. Instead of their superhero names, I had Boxed Wedding Invitations use their real life comic book names like Bruce Wayne and Barry Allen. The photo booth props were of some of the Justice League characters: Superman, Batman, and Cyborg. I incorporated all the Justice League characters because it is the next movie coming out in the DC movie series.
As far as the Wonder Woman/Diana Prince and Superman/Clark Kent models (Edith Romero and Rick Alvarez) go, I planned for their attire as well to fit the theme. Collaborating with the Eco Designer, Deborah Lindquist, helped me realize that there should be two wardrobe changes. One for Wonder Woman and Superman and one for Diana Prince and Clark Kent. Deborah Lindquist designed the outfits and some accessories for Wonder Woman and Diana Prince. I planned for the outfits and accessories of Superman and Clark Kent as well as for some accessories for Wonder Woman and Diana Prince. I carefully chose the look for Superman and Clark Kent making sure to incorporate blue, red, and gold. For both Wonder Woman and Diana Prince, I chose the shoes as well as the gold hair accessory, gold/crystal ring, and gold earrings. Wonder Woman wore jeweled shoes to represent the crystals inside Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Diana Prince wore red shoes because both Wonder Woman and Superman have this color in common in their costumes. I made sure to also include the Wonder Woman headpiece and her lasso of truth. Overall, Wonder Woman and Diana Prince wore white with hints of red and gold and Superman and Clark Kent wore blue with hints of red and gold. All these colors fit the theme. In addition, I decided that Wonder Woman would wear her hair down with curls and carry her lasso because it’s true to her character. I decided that Superman would have his hair slicked back, wear his cape, and his “costume” underneath his suit because it’s true to his character. Instead of getting married as Wonder Woman and Superman, they got married as Diana Prince and Clark Kent. This meant no more lasso but hair up with a long beautiful gown for Diana Prince. And this meant no more cape but shaggy hair with glasses and suit blazer for Clark Kent.
From the Stationary Artist – Adriana:
Every time I do a new styled shoot it pushes my limits and my imagination so I enjoy every second of the process. The gold details I used on the invitation cards were very unique and similar to Wonder Woman’s gold tiara which made this suite an exceptional beauty. The gold glitter doesn’t shed and it gives the invitation the extra glitz and glam. The cards were printed on pearl shimmer paper for a dazzling look. This invitation suite is inspired by beauty and romance. Gold and royal blue are the main colors of the suite and it’s perfect for the eclectic bride. I love listening to my client’s vision. My imagination is limitless. I love creating and working with paper and all things pretty! Every project pushes my imagination further and further which I enjoy very much. If a bride can envision a design, I can make it.
From the Photographer – Raelyn:
We all love a good superhero story. Maybe it’s just because I grew up watching the Batman and Superman Adventures on Kids WB, but I’ve always been a bit of a sucker for the Man of Steel. The Wonder Woman craze has been sweeping the nation ever since the big summer blockbuster showed us all just how incredible Diana Prince really is. Of course, we had to bring Superman and Wonder Woman together for a wedding the biggest DC Comics fans would swoon over.
From the Make-up Artist – Jamie:
Wonder Woman’s iconic red lip was the central focus to the entire look. That classic red was achieved with a matte lipstick with ultra pigmentation to keep the lips looking fresh throughout the day. The main essence of the eyes was to make the beautiful brown eyes pop and to work alongside the classic red lip to achieve the perfect look. Warm brown was swept through the crease with a deeper brown pinpointing deep in the crease to achieve ultimate definition. A gold shimmery eyeshadow was added to the lid so not only do the eyes of the blushing bride pop when her eyes are open, but also when she looks down. Along the bottom lash line, all the warm tones were blended throughout to add to the sultriness of the eyes. Eyeliner was a main tool used in the completion of the eyes. Both the top and bottom lash lines were lined with a black waterproof liner to withstand the day. To coincide with the warmth emerging from the eyes, bronzer was added on the high points on the face and on the highest points of the cheek bones. A shimmery highlight was added to accentuate the natural structure of the bride. To finish off the look, a warm rose blush was added. This look is perfect for any superhero but also any bride!
From the Dress Designer – Deborah:
What would a superhero wear to her wedding?
The Amazon warrior Wonder Woman has been a character empowering to women for decades. Not only an action hero fighting supervillians, she is a feminist who stands for justice and truth. I’m an environmentally conscious designer of clothing, accessories, home decorative accessories, wedding gowns and accessories so in creating her character through wardrobe, I felt that she would also care about the environment. I chose the sustainable fabrics hemp/silk satin and modal/spandex, a piece of vintage metallic lace, and some rare and precious wild silk called muga to create her looks.
Her wedding gown is a minimalist bias cut gown with a deep v illusion neckline embellished with a simple row of iridescent bugle beads and buttons down the back. Accessorizing the gown are a take on her iconic (and indestructible) cuff bracelets in gold and rhinestone, and a gold jeweled belt at the waist. An understated but elegant wedding look with a reference to her superhero status via the accessories.
For her reception/getaway look, her understated wedding persona disappears. I designed a gold and crème themed superhero look for her transition into her role as the wife of superman using a piece of vintage gold lace in combination with the wild gold-toned muga silk to design the bustier. (Gold is the natural color of this expensive and wild silk due to the wild silkworm’s diet in the forest and is associated with the goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity.) The little uneven-hemmed mini skirt is made of modal/spandex, a fabric I use in my Green Queen basics and active line. I kept the accessories from her wedding look, the gold cuffs and belt, but added are her iconic projectile tiara and a gold lasso of truth. I have to say Edith is the most perfect Wonder Woman ever and made my part a breeze! I had great fun creating the looks for this shoot.
From the Baker – Melanie:
I chose two types of cake, a decadent chocolate cake with a smooth buttercream and a moist lemon cake with a delicious trio of berry filling. I tried to envision what two iconic superheroes would dream about for their special day. I believed a replica of Superman’s gorgeous Fortress of Solitude would only be fitting. I am seeing that couples are choosing more non-traditional wedding cakes that put a twist on their special day to express their personality. I encourage my couples to be creative so that I can give them a cake of no other and to love the design and taste for years to come!
From the Hair Artists – Amber & Elena:
The particular styles for our Wonder Woman Bride was such an incredibly fun experience! We were asked to create two different looks. Our first style was a wild tousled look. We set the hair, wrapping it around a wand curling iron and sprayed it with a heat protecting style spray before and after curling to ensure the style would last . We set the hair by pinning in place and letting it cool while the model had her makeup session started. After the hair was set, we were able to design the bouncy Es tousled look and finish her style by placing the iconic Wonder Woman headpiece on her and securing with pins to hold it in place. The second look was a classic French twist updo. Her hair was swept up and secured by locking it in place with hair pins and strong hold hairspray to ensure it lasted through the night. To complete the look, we secured a beautiful gold v-shaped hairpiece below the twist. We were very pleased that her hairstyles lasted through the entire shoot and can see these techniques being used in many different photo shoots for engagement photos and weddings or any special occasion! Our salon is located in south Temecula by the Temecula Wineries in Southern California and we love to provide our services both on location or in the salon for any beauty needs.
