LOOK: Say ‘I do’ in your own Pokémon wedding in Japan

Pokémon takes “I do” to a whole new level, in ceremonies where the bride and groom will be accompanied by giant Pikachus, as they say their vows.

The concept comes from Bridal Fair, a brand from the Japanese bridal company Escrit Inc., which teamed up with The Pokémon Company to offer wedding services based on the popular video game and television series.

Under these special weddings, the bride and groom can affix their signatures in a Pokemon-themed wedding certificate, to seal their vows.

The bride and groom can also enjoy the rest of their wedding ceremony with a wedding reception adorned with Pokémon characters.

The wedding also spared no expense in serving Pokémon-themed food too cute to eat.
