After browsing the Offbeat Bride Flickr pool this week, I started obsessing over all of these fabulously ornate and historically influenced wedding costumes. Let me tell you, the details on these outfits are impressive. Now, I share with you a couple of fabulous Renn Faire dresses, some stately steampunk gear, and two fantastic vintage duos.
MrsCherry finally had her princess moment when she got weddinged to Justin at the Renn Faire. This photo looks like an ancient painting of a royal family. And how cute is that royal baby?! AWW.
Jenni and Rik had ninety days to get married so that Rik could obtain a Visa. So, they had a small elopement in Sedona, AZ. They donned vintage garb inspired by the 1900s. Jenni wore a romantically flowly, bell-sleeved gown with some bad ass, lace-up, victorian boots.
Brandon and Katrina got married at the Renaissance Faire in Waxahachie, TX. Katrina dressed like a princess and Brandon like a pirate. In this photo it looks like Brandon just rescued Katrina from the castle and now they are making their escape…
…then hopping on this elephant to make their final getaway!
This couple had a steampunk-themed wedding at the Museum Gustavianum in Sweden. Their wedding theme was inspired by the book, "The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." The bride even made a paper bouquet out of it! They totally nailed it. Just take a closer look at the bride's amazing headpiece!
The train in the background totally sets the perfect scene for this couple's 1940s-themed wedding. They look classic.
Tera looked absolutely stunning as her father walked her down the aisle in her amazing blue and gold corset and white tulle overskirt! Her outfit was just too good for shoes.
Fiona and Mark had a swanky, steampunk and Edwardian themed wedding at the Signet Library, in Edinburgh, Scotland. I love all of the decadent details, like Fiona's bedazzled shoes and their hot air balloon cake.
