Love The Walking Dead? We've rounded up the most creepy-hilarious wedding ideas inspired by zombies, or "walkers," as they're referred to on the show. Rather than dress up in costume on the day of their actual weddings, the newlyweds featured below got creative and depicted an apocalyptic fantasy using special effects, décor and more.
A groom who goes by the username Josiahx on Reddit asked his wedding photographer to shoot him, his lovely wife, and their bridal party doing their best zombie impressions, and then he added incredible special effects using Photoshop. Watch this amazing timelapse showing how he created this pic!

Who could forget the picnic gone wrong that we covered back in August 2011? The couple survived thanks to a shovel, but we'd feel a lot safer using Daryl's crossbow or Michonne's katana sword. This is one of our favorite creative engagement shoots to date.

The engagement shoot inspired other quirky couples to include zombies in their snapshots:

We think Maggie and Glenn would approve of these macabre yet elegant invitations. (Who could forget the memorable scene when he ripped an engagement ring off a zombie's hand and proposed shortly thereafter?!)

For a subtle nod to your zombies fixation, consider a ghoulish cake topper. The undead newlyweds below are looking a little worse for wear, but dare we say it, they're actually kind of cute.

We love the contrast between the traditional buttercream cake and the herd of zombies climbing up each tier!
