Recently, romantic gamers’ hearts got all aflutter when a wedding chapel in Kobe revealed it will start offering "Final Fantasy"-themed weddings. But what if your tastes run toward softer and fluffier franchises, or you’re just not planning to get married in the capital of Hyogo Prefecture?
Then perhaps the answer is a Pokemon wedding, which Japanese wedding planning company Escrit, which has venues all across the country, will be happy to hold for you.
Escrit has a dozen chapels in Tokyo alone, as well as others in Osaka, Yokohama, Nagoya, Sendai, and even Okinawa. All of them are stylishly appointed, but soon spouses-to-be will have the option of adding some Pokémon flair to not just the décor, but the celebratory feast as well.
The package includes place cards and program pamphlets decked out with charming illustrations of loving Pikachus with their tails poking out from a bed of flowers, in which they’re possibly sharing a just-married smooch. The bride-and-groom Electric Types also greet guests as part of the welcome board, which is customarily placed at the entrance of the banquet hall where the wedding reception takes place.
▼ With Pokemon weddings still being a new matrimonial option, the rules of etiquette aren’t completely set, and so the appropriateness of throwing a macaron at your new spouse as a metaphor for how you “caught” them remains a gray area that should be decided on a case-by-case basis.
You won’t have to wait for dessert for the edible Poke-fun to start, either, as the French cuisine included as part of the Pokemon Wedding Plan also features artistic flourishes saluting the video game/anime franchise.
Escrit says this is just the beginning of what makes the Pokemon Wedding Plan special, offering the hint that it also features a “wonderful performance,” which we’re guessing means that Pikachu himself might show up to toast your marriage. The company is currently taking reservations with interested parties through its website here, with reservations available from Feb 27.
