Peacock feathers, a pirate band, and lobster wrestling at this Derbyshire wedding

Becky and Adam's steampunk-y wedding had all the trappings we love about steampunk AND some epic fashion including a lavender dress we crave by The Couture Company. On top of that, there's s pirate band, tug ‘o’ war, and lobster wrestling. Yep, you didn't misread any of that. It's all there and it's all fabulous. It all took place at The West Mill in Derbyshire, UK.

Don't miss the bride's steamy headpiece and the peacock feather details!

No shortage of loveliness at this Orcas Island wedding in Washington

Laura and Ben had a really incredible Orcas Island wedding in Washington that's going to give you green eyes for pretty things. Like what, you say? Try felled redwood decor, succulent studded centerpieces, homemade steampunk-inspired pies, a "Smokey Porter" homebrew, and air plants (even in Laura's hair!).

How to make antiqued paper for your historical or fantasy wedding

We're getting married next month and having a pirate-themed wedding. Any bits of paper we needed (whether invitations, signs, or treasure-hunt clues) I decided to make look old and pirate-y.

This technique would also be great for medieval, historical, steampunk, fantasy, or Victorian themes. Some of you may have done something like this at school, but this is such a simple yet effective bit of DIY I just had to share it!

This steampunk cake is all dressed up with somewhere to go

There are belt buckles and a ruffled skirt lining one tier, a pearl and cameo choker on the next, a racy and lacy top tier, and of course, a jaunty top hat with a veil on the very top of this steampunk cake. I even spy a big bow in the back! Are you kidding me with all this charm? It's making me want to wear a cake.

Shall we see more views, including of the pair cutting into this bad boy? On to the steamy cake!
