Big Fat Steampunk Wedding

By Olga | October 2nd 2012

Back when I was a young blushing bride there was almost no talk of the magnificent Steampunk style, or perhaps I was just ignorant. Whatever the cause, I managed to miss out on my opportunity to throw a steam themed wedding. This I shall always regret I fear.


With an ever growing number of Steampunk enthusiasts and artists who cater to their needs today anybody can venture to step over the proverbial threshold of their future life with a bit of inspiration from the future that never was. A bit of steam powered machinery here, a dirigible there, and you are all set to start the journey. Just make sure to lace your corset tight.


Bride and Groom: The perfect Steampunk attire

Ah, the wedding dress, the pinnacle of the bridal experience. I think I could be happy in any of these, but the first two are my personal favorites.
