I will post about the wedding soon, but for now, i want to talk about Steampunk Weddings. When i announced i would be working on this themed wedding it seemed no one knew what it was all about! I think its high time the world did because they are AMAZING, so unique and fun.
The best way I have to describe it is....think Sherlock Holmes:
As defined by Wikipedia, "Steampunk is is a sub-genre of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s. Steampunk involves a setting where steam power is still widely used—usually Victorian era Britain or "Wild West"-era United States—that incorporates elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology, or futuristic innovations as Victorians might have envisioned them, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. This technology includes such fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or the contemporary authors Philip Pullman, Scott Westerfeld and China Mieville."
So you get the background now. How does one have a Steampunk wedding though?! That's the fun part!
I think eye candy would explain it best:
