1.- Steampunk wedding clothing: the definitive original touch
Your Steampunk inspired wedding could truly be the most original event of the year with a little forward planning and the right organizing. But how does one get that real ‘originality’ especially when it comes to the outfits? Having an individual style is top of the list of wants for most couples about to tie the knot. It’s only natural that you will want to stand out from the crowd in your Steampunk gear.
Well, doing your wedding in a Steampunk style will definitely give you an unexpected twist to your special day. A real edge on the other couples tying the knot this year. In this blog post we will take a closer look at the wedding attire itself and how you can make yours stand out.
Do you have a starting point for what you and your significant other will be wearing on your Steampunk wedding day? Whatever your specifications are, one of the important ones is that the bride and groom will need to be wearing something special. Hundreds if not thousands can be spent by many couples on getting both wedding outfits just right although this doesn’t have to be the case. The traditional white or cream dress with long train is a favorite with many brides-to-be while it’s a top hat and tails for the groom and his best man. There is no reason why you cannot stick with this basic formula and enhance it with Steampunk. You both may decide to wed as your favorite alternate Victorian characters, whatever the case maybe this is where the fun will begin!
For the brides-to-be one idea could be to add your favorite Steampunk accessories to your pretty cream Victorian occasion dress to personalize your outfit. A thick leather tan colored corset with all the trimmings, not forgetting the jauntily placed hat and brooch set at the high collar of your dress. For the groom’s outfit, one simply cannot beat that silken patterned or plain waistcoat along with those cute mechanical devices. Feel free to wear all your favorite inventions on your big day, you will be sure to make an unforgettable impact.
The value of older accessories is truly appreciated too. Know an uncle or aunt who is in possession of that old antique pocket watch or brooch? Ones that you know will fit in beautifully with your wedding outfit while also adding a huge dose of all things sentimental. This is what wedding days are all about so why not ask to borrow these precious pieces? Pin the brooch to a pretty velvet ribbon for a luxurious choker style necklace. An antiquated looking pocket watch would fit beautifully with the groom’s vintage Victorian gentleman style.
2.- Looking for inspiration: Steampunk fashion books
Maybe you are thinking on being a little more daring? The wedding dress itself can be as wild as you want it to be. You can hitch up that hemline or choose a more ‘flouncy’ fabric one that will give your waist and bottom half some old school glamour. There are some fantastic publications that will be able to help you with your wedding day inspiration:
