Themed weddings are all the rage right now. They are fun and unique, making any special day more than memorable for the bride and groom as well as all of their guests. There are plenty of themes to choose from, and it really all comes down to preference. Steampunk is an original and quirky wedding theme, invoking a romantic and vintage vibe while still being eclectic and totally unique. The style of this theme is Victorian with a Sci-Fi edge. The genre itself is inspired by Science Fiction from the 19th century that incorporates high-tech steam powered technology. So that means lots of brass and bronze, antiqued patinas, lace and ribbon, gears and gadgets, you name it.
When it comes to themes, it’s best to think of ways to incorporate it into your overall decor. Accents like ribbon and lace can be incorporated practically anywhere, from place settings to banners and table cloths, flower arrangements, invitations, envelopes, reception decorations and locales, even the bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen’s accents and ties. Choose a color or a design that fits the theme and run with it. Have fun and mix and match, create a truly unique and eclectic style.
You don’t have to, but you can incorporate some of these elements into your wedding gown. Lace, copper, bronze or similarly colored ribbon, all make appropriate accents that still allow your wedding dress to look more traditional if desired. This way you can still fit in with the theme. You can also opt to wear a vintage dress and/or Victorian inspired jewelry. Lace chokers with cameo pendants, earrings and bracelets that include intricate ribbon work and hanging pearls. Feel free to stray away from the more traditional white and play around with color, pale pinks, yellowed creams, black or silver, or even bronze and copper to match the other decorations. You can choose to go all out with a themed gown, or simply use accents to lightly inspire your bridal look. A sexy lace corset or bustier is right at home in this sort of themed environment, and will not only spice up your look but will also be totally appropriate with your theme.
This is the sort of wedding theme that is perfect for that quirky couple, who want something that their friends and family will remember and have a blast participating in. You can even go a step further and have period-inspired activities and music, dance to 19th century parlor music, play croquet, don fans and masquerade masks, go all out. Whichever decor or activities you choose, your guests are sure to remember your wedding day for years to come.
