Back when I was a young blushing bride there was almost no talk of the magnificent Steampunk style, or perhaps I was just ignorant. Whatever the cause, I managed to miss out on my opportunity to throw a steam themed wedding. This I shall always regret I fear.
With an ever growing number of Steampunk enthusiasts and artists who cater to their needs today anybody can venture to step over the proverbial threshold of their future life with a bit of inspiration from the future that never was. A bit of steam powered machinery here, a dirigible there, and you are all set to start the journey. Just make sure to lace your corset tight.
Bride and Groom: The perfect Steampunk attire
Ah, the wedding dress, the pinnacle of the bridal experience. I think I could be happy in any of these, but the first two are my personal favorites.
1. Lyndsey Boutique:
Untainted pure Steampunk style.
2. KMK Designs:
Alternative Steampunk bridal apparel with a good dollup of Goth added.
3. Romantic Threads
Victorian reproductions, some innocent some with a gothic undertone. All suitable for your Steampunk fantasy wedding.
4. Ophelia's Folly
Beautiful Steampunk ruffles, bustles and corsets.
5. Harlots and Angels
Hunting for the perfect Steampunk corsets? Look no further.
6. Meschantes Corsetry
Some more fantastic high quality corsets to complete the Steampunk bridal look.
7. Dreadnought Designs
The makings of a true Steampunk gentleman.
Accessories For Him:
When it comes to Steampunk accessorizing is a definite must.
Accessories For Her:
Itt all depends on the fine details. Without her fan and gloves a Victorian bride can feel practically naked.
These are the most stylish and fun Steampunk inspired wedding rings I found. They are from Blue Bayer Desing, not overstated but clearly exhibiting the marks of the epoc.
The Mechanical Wedding Cake
There have been several posts on different blogs about fantastically creative Steampunk inspired wedding cakes lately. I’m just rehashing some of their lists here. The credit is all theirs.

A Steampunk bride can never go wrong with an elegant traditional Victorian updo.
The other road to take is to go totally crazy. Speampunk being alternative history and speculative fiction gives leeway to a wide array of creative interpretations. Here are a few awesome hair styles collected by becomegorgeous.com for the modern Victorian bride.
