My wedding and reception are steampunk themed. I have my bridesmaids with oil lanterns and a clockwork hair pin for me and my maid of honor. Debating adding a leather belt to my dress. Chalkboard signs, skeleton key card holders. Any more Ideas?
If the leather belt will add to your dress, go for it, if it will look ackward or take away from the beauty of the dress, skip it. I do agree that there needs to be a top hat either on you with a veil attached or for the groom. I don't know much about steam punk, but I think you can do this theme in a way that respresents you very well but will also be very classy by not going crazy/over the top with the theme.
Will long strands of pearls work into the look?
