This sci-fi and steampunk-loving wedding is so full of DIY projects and amazing sights, you'll be pretty damn dazzled. Add in the amazing Beatles cover band, their "steampunk bling table," and of course, the San Diego Zoo setting, and you're in for animals, costumes, and a good ol' time.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of steampunk posts.
Alexis and Chelsea got married just a few months ago in a small ceremony in Illinois. And, no big, they were only decked out from head to toe in absolutely fabulous steampunk finery. Alexis is making it look like she wears a corset, bustle, and high-heeled boots every day, and I only wish I looked as good as Chelsea does in a checkered vest and pinstripe pants. The ceremony took place at a Spanish-style mansion, amid bouquets of Edgar Allan Poe book pages.
Beakers, test tubes, stacks of books, and a rocket dog — get ready for some steamy fun in this one! This super-organized pair also offered a stamping station, amazing steampunk hand fans, centerpieces you'll drool over, and a pre-game shot that was more than any of them bargained for.
There are a few ways to avoid a bunch of time-consuming group portraits, but this one is one of our favorites. These two rented an open air brass-railed trolley for a perfectly suited steampunk backdrop for their photo shoot! Add that to the bride's handmade reception gown, amazing steamy costumes, and a gamer-themed musical at the reception, and you'll be totally transported. Oh, and wait until you see who ended up wearing a white wedding gown. Hint: it wasn't the bride!
An intricate headpiece, a lush brooch bouquet, a Renaissance-style purple and black dress, and some Nightmare Before Christmas details — it's a wedding any Tim Burton fan would love. With lots of DIY and a casual vibe, everyone seemed right at home. Plus, don't miss the canine ring bearer in a shmancy top hat!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish in one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got an all-era time travel costume wedding! Think amazing decor (including light-up centerpieces!), a chihuahua in a dress, and a mysterious Time Lord officiant coming out of the smoke! This theatrical pair KNOWS how to throw a multi-talented party.

Now, I'm not sure how many of you would ever wear ankle boots on your wedding days, but I'm inspired to collect a few of my favorites here for you. Blame the Italians for this perhaps only slightly-wedding-related shoe post!
Put on your goggles and your neo-Victorian gear, because this is STEAMPUNK WEEK! Today we've got a purple and bronze steamy bonanza with a geodesic dome ceremony, a ketubah/parking problem (what?!), and some adorable vows you don't want to miss. Just watch out for the spoilsport rain!
We're trying to make our reception tables look like the desk of a (mad?) scientist or at least a bit bookish and science-y. So these are our place cards! They're all itty bitty glass vials with a label and some contents. The label names are geeky references. The contents are mostly things from the pantry. And then we're gonna put the name cards on top.
