Haven’t we all dreamt of a wedding that will create a memory of a lifetime, not only for you and your partner but for everyone that comes? With so many weddings happening all the time, it can be difficult trying to find a theme that really stands out from the crowd.
You don’t want to have a wedding that’s similar to your next door neighbor’s or that colleague of yours. You know, the type with the typical flowers and ordinary soft colors. You would want to turn the night into something incredible, something different, something that makes people go, “Wow! Where am I?”. If you can relate, then we would love to tell you all about the steampunk theme.
This genre is all about incorporating industrial designs and steam-powered machineries that are from science fantasy. Sounds cool doesn’t it? Because it is! The color combinations needed to perfect the theme are basically autumn colors alongside copper and black.
For the wedding dress, you can definitely opt for something Victorian. So this could even mean wearing a traditional white gown with accents of cool steampunk jewelries and lace. For your partner, he could play around with lots of fun accessories like top hat, rings, pocket watch just to name a few. Also, when it comes to your bridesmaids, don’t feel the need to have the wear matching dresses. Be creative and have them wear mismatching dresses in Victorian styles. You can also throw in quirky jewelries like interesting fascinators and brooches.
When it comes to the actual wedding décor itself, you could place lots of cool trinkets, gadgets, objects as your centerpieces and around the venue. So this could be anything from watches to something as extravagant as machineries. For the main aspect of the wedding, try to use copper and bronze colors all around the wedding venue. You want to create a moody lighting as well that seems mysterious but wacky at the same time.
Yes the steampunk theme can seem quite dramatic but why not, right? Go ahead and have fun creating a wedding that will take you and your guests into another world.
