I’ve been in a Steampunk state-of-mind for a month now, since my Steampunk Up Your Wedding article so I thought it only appropriate to wind it up before my next article comes out in the Unique Bride Magazine and today I have an amazing wedding created on a budget of only $500 NZ.  Yep, you read it right, Five Hundred!!  It can be done!!! So let’s wrap up our Steampunk month with a budget wedding which stars the now famous corset that started off my love affair with this theme.

From Steff at Steff Metal blog: http://steffmetal.com

This is the corset by the frabjous Gallery Serpentine that started my love affair with Steampunk.

Knock knock  – “Who’s there?”  – A Damsel in dis Dress 🙂

Very Chaplin’ish – doesn’t it just take you back to a different era?

And here’s the video to watch

P.S. If you’re looking for the worlds best steampunk wedding here it is!


I’ve never followed trends as I disliked being just one of the crowd so my love for things that are different, unusual, beautiful and stylistic that I’d had all my life transformed into Alice in Weddingland.
