Monday Montage: historically-inspired wedding outfits of epic proportions #Wedding Porn#1940s#bouquet#castle#corset#getting weddinged#renaissance#tudor#victorian Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Mar 7 2011) Offbeat Editors 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. Photo by Laura Linder Photography 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. Photo by Jen of Pink Light Images 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… Photo by Jen of Pink Light Images …then hopping on this elephant to make their final getaway! Photo courtesy of Therese Karlsson 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!

Photo by Zach at Kaptive Photography 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. Photo thanks to David McNeil Wedding Photography 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. This week's Clicky Links: Speaking of steampunk, Offbeat Home just featured a rad steampunk studio built from the studs up! We all need a little inspiration from time to time, but there can be a fine line between drawing inspiration and stealing. Princess Lasertron explains how you can take inspiration from others without copying their work. Thanks to Sara for sharing this adorable hipster wedding at the Clift Hotel. The Bride, Angela, is definitely wearing drool-worthy royal blue Manolo Blahniks. Over on Offbeat Mama, Ruth explains why age doesn't really matter in terms of marriage or parenthood. It is just a number, after all. Hey, photographers! I love you and do my best to attribute all Monday Montage photos, but sometimes brides don't include your info when they submit photos.

Reply Man, I really need to get internet-quality wedding pictures from our photog (I've been lazy). My husband wore a traditional Norwegian costume and I wore his grandmother's 1949 wedding dress… but I don't have the pictures up on flickr to prove it! You can see some of the pictures here: http://jamisonwexler.com/blog/jamisonwexler.com/blog/mink-andys-wedding-at-stonehurst-mansion-in-waltham-ma/ Reply Please get photos on flickr and submit your profile!!

I highly approve of this Monday Montage! Reply I want to read full profiles for all of these!!! (esp the 1940's and princess/pirate weddings) Reply Ugh, looking at these photos make me get the itch for ren faire! I can't wait to get back into my garb 😀 Reply Wow, that first photo DOES look like an ancient painting. At first glance I thought it was, until I saw the groom's out-of-place smile. How freaking cool is that photo!! Reply I am actually getting the picture done in a painting by a man on etsy, so I can hang it up in our home! The photog that took this is amazing. So glad that we could have two talented people to catch the day. One of the photogs actually made all of the garb that everyone wore that day too! Reply Can we pretty, pretty please see the bride profile for that Edinburgh wedding? I'm about ready to explode of curious glee! Reply I guess I could submit it. I hadn't because I didn't think it would be accepted for various reasons. Reply Fiona, The shoes are absolutely gorgeous! I'd love to have similar pair in either black or pewter gray. I can't find anything remotely like these online. Where did you find your steampunk shoes? Or did you create them yourself? Reply I want to steal that blue peacock feather corset. Her blue hair makes it even more awesome. Reply Does anyone know where Fiona found her steampunk shoes? Or did she create them herself? The shoes are absolutely gorgeous! I'd love to have similar pair in either black or pewter gray. I've looked and looked online but nothing comes close to these.
