So what is Steampunk?
Before Steampunk became the full-blown sub-culture it is today, it started out as a science-fiction sub-genre in the 1970s.
The Steampunk Look
A Steampunk Wedding
Step One: A Steampunk Engagement Party.
You also might feel that if everyone had to dress up for the wedding so that they would feel much more like part of your day, rather than just being onlookers and well-wishers.
If you have set the date, then you will know what the climate will be if you want to be able to have a ceremony in the garden.
Step Two: The date! When to tie the knot is a good start.
Now that you have the date, sending out and Save the Date card to all your family and friends is the second step. Having Steampunk invitation cards that includes your photo will already set the tone of your coming event.
Some couples might be planning their steampunk wedding a year in advance for the planning of the clothes and decor. To have a special creative celebration for family and friends to have an unforgettable day takes time.
Step Three: A bridal shower and bachelor party
A stag or hen party followed by a wedding shower party is all possible and a great way to gather some of the decor gifts that can be used during your wedding.
(The cards used in this article can all be personalized, including the gifts that go with the steampunk theme.)
TIP: Many couples have already set up a website where ideas of gifts that might include some decor items for the wedding. Links to vintage hire services might also be very helpful for your wedding guests.
It is possible through the internet to find some ingenuity to create your own Steampunk theme. Many craftspeople on Etsy, specialize in making dresses, suits and accessories for your entire wedding.
Even the most amazing props can be created during these parties. Pinterest is a great way to explore what others have created for the steampunk wedding.
This Elegant Gold Black Steampunk Invitation birthday party card by Zizzago can easily be personalized and made into a steampunk party invitation.
The three party invitations above could be a great help to include your family and friends into the Steampunk fashion mood. Those events could even be a workshop party activity where some props for the wedding can be created in a team spirit.
The Colors of a Steampunk Wedding.
A very suitable option is burgundy, dark brown or even black. Black should not be a color to be afraid of because you can always add some gold or metallic elements that will make the whole event looking amazing. What also works is aubergine, black and teal.

Step Four: The Wedding
- Who is organizing the ceremony setup and decor?
- Factors like who is doing the catering?
- Who is organizing the music?
- Can the wedding ceremony be held in the garden, or inside the house?
For couples who want to stay away from rentals, mixing chairs and other furnishings that were found within your home can add whimsy and charm to your design scheme and decor.
- Are you asking for financial contributions?
- Have you thought about what kind of input you want them to have?
- Are there traditions you want to include?
- Are you both encouraging your guest to were steampunk costumes, if so where could they hire them? ( mentioned on your wedding website on your invitations)
I hope that my article will inspire the soon to be Mr and Mrs.
