Theme Inspiration: Steampunk

Take an affinity for the Victorian era, add a science fiction bent, and a flair for vintage, and you’ve got steampunk. Steampunk inspired-weddings are characterized by an industrial look focused on the steam-powered machines of the past – think gears, keys, and lots of copper – accented by vintage details like lace and flowers. Other elements include flying goggles, pocket watches, corsets, and feathers. Love “Dr. Who”? Chances are pretty good a steampunk aesthetic would speak to you.

It’s no surprise, then, that the steampunk style has made its way into weddings. Check out these vintage celebrations we found:
