It’s a Nice Day for a Steampunk Wedding! 

How to make your Steampunk Wedding a SMASHING SUCCESS!

Sept 20, 2018 Audrey W.

Your wedding day is meant to be a magical dream come true right? Let’s face it though, weddings are stressful, require dozens of decisions and most couples don’t even feel like they got a chance to truly enjoy their wedding!

If you want to plan a Steampunk Themed Wedding, then you are already ahead of the game! Theme Weddings are definitely more whimsical and fun since they inspire creativity from ALL who partake – even the bride and groom. 

However, you must make EVERY detail count during a themed wedding. The venue, decorations, party favors and flowers are just some of the obvious decisions you will have to make to create an epic wedding.

Here at Steampunk Love & Blog we are here to help! We have some tips and tricks to help you style your Steampunk Wedding.

1. Is a Color Palette Important in a Steampunk Themed Wedding?

The answer is…no. Unlike traditional weddings there is no set color palettes for steampunk. You can be as creative as you want to be. Since you will most likely encourage your guests to dress up, choosing a color theme might hurt those expensive wedding photos versus help.

2. Is the Venue important?

Realistically a venue can help set the tone for your wedding and reception, so it is important. That doesn’t mean it has to be expensive though! That is the beauty of a steampunk wedding – the details can make all the difference no matter what kind of venue you are in!

Decide first are you wanting an indoor or outdoor experience? Outdoor venues can be just as magical if you think outside of the box. Does your space contain trees? Hang antique skeleton keys or different shaped clocks / gears from branches, shrubs or fences at varying heights. Line your walkway with candle lite mason jars etc.

3. How to Budget a Themed Wedding

According to Trip Savvy, “$35,329 is the average amount spent on a traditional American wedding”. The average American household brings in $50,000 per year, sooo you maybe eating Ramen Noodles for awhile if you don’t budget your wedding appropriately.

Here is a list of items to include in your Wedding Budget:

  1. The Venue
  2. Reception Food and Drink Menu
  3. Wedding Photography and Video
  4. Wedding Ceremony and Reception Music
  5. Ceremony & Reception Decorations
  6. Reception Table Centerpieces
  7. Wedding Dress
  8. Grooms Suit
  9. Bride’s Hair & Makeup
  10. Wedding Jewelry
  11. Wedding Invitations
  12. Wedding Favors
  13. Flowers

If you find yourself a little strapped for wedding cash get thrifty! About 90% of this list can be DIY if you have the time and energy to do it. Another option is to enlist the help of your friends and family – make it a bonding experience 😊
