Steampunk Wedding Accessories

Most steampunks take pride in modifying their clothes. Adding military notes makes for a smashing look, and can be as simple as sewing a newspaper-sized square of fabric onto your top and decking out the edges with buttons. If you're feeling a little more daring, you (or a tailor - there's no need to get crazy) can modify your dress for an asymmetrical look and even add a few modern or futuristic touches.

Once you have your dress tricked out to make you feel like the most beautiful creature to ever strap on a steam-powered jet pack, it's time to accessorize. Let your dress and your face be the main points of focus, but don't be afraid to have a little fun! A smart Victorian hat and veil nicely top off a demure steampunk bridal gown, while the more daring may prefer a generous updo topped with a properly aged pair of aviator goggles.

You may want to add traditional pieces like a string of pearls, a parasol, or a pocket watch. Or let your playful side out and go with something a little more Neovictorian - any futuristic item that's been modified to look like it's made out of wood and brass will be intriguing and fun. And speaking of fun, be sure to have plenty of it at your wedding.
