Now I presume that in the past you could have had a Pokemon-themed wedding regardless of the licensing legalities, but now you still can, this time with a certificate of authenticity.
ESCRIT, a Japanese company specialising in wedding ceremonies has teamed up with The Pokemon Company to bring you the wedding that you so desire, in the form of a normal wedding but with full-grown men in Pikachu outfits flanking the alter.
Weirdly, the Pikachus are dressed as a bride and groom even though it’s very poor form to show up to a wedding and upstage the wife like that.
On top of that – as if you could want more – there’s food. Now, I don’t what this is, but it looks sweet and has a print of Pikachu’s arse on it, so I’m guessing it’s a dessert. Perhaps a pancake in a bowl, if there is such a thing?
On top of that, there’s a different type of dessert that comes with Pikachu’s face in dusted chocolate and by the looks of things, a Poke Ball made entirely from icing. Could be a macaroon.
There’s then the wedding cake – another dessert – which comes with a plaque that looks like it’s made from icing, decorated with two ceremonial Pikachus and the pretty weird phrase that no-one has ever said “HappyWedding”. Not a typo from me there, it’s one word.
The legalities are even Pokemon-themed, with the wedding certificate also having Pikachus on it. There’s over 800 Pokemon and all they’ve done here is ctrl+C ctrl+V on Pikachu. cmd if you have a Mac.
I’ll be honest, I think this theme was the groom’s idea, here. She doesn’t look happy, does she?
But yeah, whatever floats your boat. There’s more pictures on the website so go nuts.
