One trend that has lasted for years on Offbeat Bride is the timeless, ever-flattering corset. It easily transitions from costume to steampunk to elegant and simple. We have so many amazing vendors with whom we work who create absolute works of art for our readers that it’s hard to even keep track of them all. What better way to try than to round up the most recent and most awesome wedding corsets we’ve seen in years? Let’s ogle the intricate details and fabulous waistlines created by these looks.
Winery photos, autumn details, and two cuties who got married on their five-year anniversary — are you in or what?! There’s also amazing advice about seating charts, eating before the ceremony, altering your outfits, leftover catering, and more. Seriously, this pair knows what they are doing!

Are you KIDDING ME with this!? How incredible is this wedding dress from our sponsor [vendor-heart link="http://www.kmkdesigns.org/"]KMKDesigns[/vendor-heart]. Remember when I introduced you to KMKDesigns a few months ago? Well, Ariel and I did a little snooping on their latest creations and ZOMGBALLS, were we impressed.
Lisa and Charlie traveled to Washington DC from Rhode Island to be married at the Million Puppet March in October. The ceremony was officiated by Tiffany Newman and took place during the muppet gathering at Lincoln Park.

Jennifer and Russ held a gorgeous almost-totally-DIYed wedding at Jennifer’s parent’s farm in Ocala, FL. After their outdoor ceremony under a giant tree, they had a reception with a bourbon bar, alcoholic cupcakes, and a s’mores pit!
