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!
When plain blue boots aren’t going to cut it because you need those absolutely perfect boots you saw online somewhere, it’s time to go looking for your “fairy godvendor” on Etsy so they can make them for you.
Here are the “something blue” Victorian boots I had made for my 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.
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!
The wedding explodes with Victorian style, rich hues, and elegance. Add in the pagan ceremony, secret tattoos, and double top hats, and you’re in for a treat. And just wait until you see the bride’s favorite moment (sobs!) and the feeling the bride describes at the ceremony (shivers!).
When the bride and her sister make eight hardcore Victorian-inspired outfits for the wedding, you know this is serious-business history love. Add in the Victorian dancing, regimental band, and amazing belly dance and drum performance, and you’ve got a recipe for an outstanding wedding celebrating a gorgeous family home and era. Wait until you hear what the bride did with her antique ring!
