If you've spent more time playing Pokémon Go this week than you have planning your wedding, then you're definitely not alone. Not only is the nostalgic '90s video game franchise back in full force, but the popular "augmented reality" world is an easy way to avoid the other reality that is your planning checklist. (Caught a Charmander? Check. Booked a venue? Not even close.) But while you've been busy catching wild Bulbasaurs instead of locking down your guest list, we've tracked down the best Pokémon-inspired wedding details that would make even the most Poké-obsessed fans proud. From a punchy, red and yellow bridal mani to a subtle Poké Ball boutonniere, these gaming details are a must for any Pokémon party.

So, #PokemonGo has been HUGELY successful (glitches aside); as a long-time #PokéFan, I'm LOVING IT. So I'm remembering this wedding from last year - a BRILLIANTLY themed #Pokémon wedding. How's this for the perfect ring "box"?! 😍 •~~~~• . . . #JayEmmePhotography #WeddingPhotographer #PokemonWedding #PokémonWedding #Pokeball #RingBox #PokeballRingBox #PokémonGO #Pokemon #WeddingPhotography #WarwickshireWedding #StMarysGuildhall #StMarysGuildhallWedding #RingBearer #RingBear(!) #RingShot #WeddingRings #PokemonTrainer #AlternativeWedding #WeddingFun #FunWeddingIdeas - oh, and don't forget to quote #JayEmmeInstaWed for a 30% discount on wedding packages 😍💕
