Ultimate weddings, birthdays and funerals for geeks

Take your love for gadgets all the way

If you've ever dreamed of marrying a video-game character, having your ashes put in a computer, or holding your wedding on the deck of Star Trek's USS Enterprise, you're not alone. Geeks before you have had the same ideas - and some have even implemented them.

Custom coffins

Everybody knows at least one die-hard fanboy - PS3, Xbox, Linux, you name it.

I'm talking about the guy who would run into a burning building to save his Macbook Pro (but maybe not his dog).

Well, now these fanboys can take their fandom to the grave with them - literally.

CreativeCoffins.net builds environmentally friendly coffins that can be customised with the design of your choice.

There are no geek-friendly designs on the site, but you can fill out a form for a custom design.

Star Wars weddings

May the force be with you...you may now kiss the bride.

At one wedding, the groom wore a Mon Calamari mask, the bride wore traditional republic clothing, and the celebrant donned Leia's slave bikini.

Looking for something less theme-y? This couple (pictured) didn't go quite as all-out - the bride wore a Stormtrooper-inspired white gown, the groom wore black, and they apparently duelled with lightsabers at the reception.
