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!

Our hearts are black and blue from this goth fantasy wedding

Royal blue and black details, a black dragon cake, the bride's corseted dream gown, and tons of steampunk, goth, and Victorian-inspired garb on the guests — it's a stunning goth fantasy wedding. Don't miss the heavy metal soundtrack ideas, the poetry readings, and the dark, dreamy, mysterious DIYed decor.

9 pairs of Victorian-flavored boots for your pointy-toed or steampunk wedding

We recently shared a post on Facebook that featured a photo with the boots above as the illustration. Immediately a reader was like "Whatever about that post — WHAT ABOUT THOSE BOOTS." So perhaps it's time to share a small collection of Victorian boots. These could be great Neo-Victorian or steampunk wedding shoes, or maybe you just like booties with lace and pointy toes? Regardless, if granny boots are your thing… this is your post.

Greta & Erty's community-made Victorian-styled wedding weekend

You know those weddings where you just end up grinning like a damn fool because everyone just looks glowing with happiness and gratefulness and someone walks by and thinks you're watching something naughty? Yeah, well, this is that kind of wedding. Get ready to look very silly laughing and crying at adorable guitar-playing dads, top hat- (and ice cream-) wearing couples, inflatable horse and pool noodle jousts, giant Jenga, tear-jerking ceremony songs… and I can't even fit it all in here!
