I love how Royal Steamline describe this type of bride and groom, "Steampunks choose vacuum tubes over amulets and schematics instead of spell bools. We are drunk on the possibilities of the electric current, the brass gear and the pneumatic pump. We are the gentleman scientists, the plucky tinkerers and the intrepid airship commanders, and our weddings celebrate the future by toasting the past!"
Tricia Fountaine has my favorite Steampunk themed wedding featured with a TON of photos. Seriously, this lady is talented and did a lot of the detail work herself including soldering copper pipes together to make candelabra and hanging a copy of Leonardo Da Vinci's wings from the rafters in the reception barn. Be sure to check out her ring bearer's nest with old skeleton keys and clock gears.
Royal Steamline has a whole invitation, save the date, and wedding website line devoted to this style.

Attire and Accessories:
Of course you have to dress the part with top hats, vests, corset tops, goggles, timepieces and parasols. We found a great line of jewelry, clothing and other accessories via the websites below.

Your bouquet, cake and other aspects of your wedding should tie into your Steampunk theme as well. Since a lot of your supplies will be vintage, therefor recycled, Steampunk makes for an eco-friendly theme!
