Steampunk wedding style
Have you heard of the steampunk trend? It couldn’t be hotter, and it has even made the move over to the world of weddings! We’re here to dissect just what a steampunk wedding entails…
So just what defines steampunk style? Steampunk designs harken back to a world of grit and steam power – think Victorian England with an edge. Working gears, smokestacks, metallic colors, and Victorian-era clothing and accessories like pocket watches, top hats and corsets are common images associated with this aesthetic.
Incorporating steampunk style into your wedding gives the day a whimsical, romantic wonderland feel. We’ve been especially inspired by these weddings at Offbeatbride.com:
