Cosplay is what Cos Couture mostly focuses on, but I love all things geek so today is for the brides! There are so many ways to incorporate steamunk into your wedding day and I’ve found 12 real brides and wedding designers to feature in today’s post. Know one of my favorite things about steampunk? The variety!
ILovesTheDay is a beautiful Indonesian bride. Hit the link to see her lace steampunk design, complete with trains! I love her fascinator!
Mod4 photographic shot Teresa and Eric’s gorgeous steampunk wedding complete with ray guns! Hit the link to see their robot cake topper and steampunk bridesmaids! My favorite thing about Teresa is that beautiful feather in her hair. Look how pretty! Want more? Like the photographer’s Facebook page!
Viktor Blud uploaded this steampunk wedding photo to VK, the Russian version of Facebook. Sorry, I can’t tell you if it’s a fashion shoot or a real wedding as I am reading Russian ignorant. Still, look at that gathered skirt, those tights, and the top hat with hanging ribbons. Beautiful!
UPDATE! Guys, this IS a real wedding, and thanks to Korey Luna you can see more of it. Korey is the portrait photographer that shot this wedding and he’s based out of San Francisco. I’m so thrilled the photographer found Cos Couture! He does beautiful work so please check out his album!
This is Courtney and Rhys and their wedding was featured on the Offbeat Bride. I love her hair, and that lace parasol. Hit the link to see gears, hot air balloons, and an octopus! My favorite part is the piñata. They put the bouquet and garter inside. Now that’s clever!
Mollie and Scott also had their wedding featured on the Offbeat Bride. Hit the link to see more shots of her steamunk pirate wedding dress and their sailboat reception! Everyone came in pirate gear!
Honestly? I don’t know if I’d call this steampunk. But it easily could be! Yujen Chen posted an amazing crystal wedding dress collection and every. single. one is gorgeous. Of course I love the crystal and rhinestone draping but look at the pleating and gathering underneath. Wow!
Julina Corsets and Crinolines created this steampunk wedding dress with its bow front corset. Look at those lace cap sleeves! Hit the link to see more shots of this, and a unique corseted short wedding dress as well!
Nearly Newlywed posted this rose-taupe gown by Alberta Ferretti. maybe it’s just me, but the classic lines and pretty draping would be a beautiful base for a steampunk wedding dress.
That hat! This Victorian wedding gown fashion shoot is by Green Wedding Shoes. Hit the link to see parasols, leather jackets, and an ocean of silver candlesticks I wish I’d thought of first!
Sheyne and Glenn call their wedding scientific Victorian steampunk octopus! What else would you expect from two The League of S.T.E.A.M. performers?! Check out their article on the Offbeat Bride to see some of the most extraordinary event details I’ve ever seen. Not yet though! LOOK at that robot ring bearer!!!
RockNRoll Bride posted a fashion photo shoot called Clockwork Heart and Eyelash Dream: A Victorian Steampunk Shoot. Hit the link to see vendor and various other credits (It’s a big list!) and you’ll find several shots of this cream colored steampunk dress as well. It has a hi-low hemline that is just gorgeous. You’ll also find everything from steampunk wedding cakes and decorations to one heck of a clothing shoot. Be prepared to stay!
Last up is the real wedding that inspired this post. Hit this link for Miss Tak’s Portfolio NOW to see an amazing outdoor steampunk wedding and one of the most beautiful receptions I’ve ever seen. I love her cloud of a skirt. There’s a picture of her and her new husband dancing and all I could think of for a second was how it must have floated when she moved. Now really. Hit the link. You’ll thank me!
