New Wedding Trend Alert: Minions?! (PHOTOS)

On first mention, "minions" does not sound like a very wedding-friendly theme [insert tired joke here about wife becoming boss etc. etc.]. However, a British couple, Sam Finan and Bob Thomas, recently splashed out for a wedding themed to the diminutive yellow, banana-loving thugs. Yep, the animated ones who sashay through mega-grossing movies MinionsDespicable Me, and Despicable Me 2, getting into adorable trouble and playing silly practical jokes on each other, all in service of their arch-villain bosses.

And this couple went all out! The wedding was minion-themed from the invites to the place cards to the bridesmaid dresses (try wearing that taxi-hued frock another time!), and even the cake. Oh, and a few humans in minion costumes topped it all off. The impetus for the mellow-yellow nuptials? The groom's tattoo of a minion bride and groom.

In general, weddings -- reportedly this was the second one for both -- and animated film characters don't go that well together. After all, like tattoos, weddings are (kind of) forever. Fifty years from now, do you really want to flip through the wedding album and see a perhaps forgotten cartoon critter all over the pages? 

But, then again, -- oh, $%&* it! They are truly irresistable. Can't you just imagine making a banana-flavored wedding cake embellished with Twinkies? I'll get on that.
