Vampires have become so popular recently! All those films including the Twilight Saga just blow our minds and make us think of eternal life and, of course, eternal love. If you are also crazy about vampires and decided to incorporate them into your big day, these ideas are for you. Vampire-inspired décor means everything red and black, from décor to outfits. I think that a black wedding dress can’t be more actual anywhere else than here, at a vampire wedding. Hint on blood with red rhinestones and food and cocktails; go for dark red roses everywhere and for your bouquet. Coffins, skulls and crosses will complete your vampire-inspired décor.

Brace yourself, everyone — we have a real wedding that’s going to completely blow you away. This Victorian affair has every single detail nailed to perfection, right down to the reception tables sprinkled with images of Steampunk cult icons. Images are from the always amazing Braedon Flynn!
From the bride, Kate: Jacob and I are both artists. When we started sketching out ideas for the wedding, we new we wanted our guests to feel like they were in another world. That being said, we also needed the wedding to be everything that is truly “us.” After a few months of brainstorming with our designer, Tricia Fountaine, Jacob said “It’s like a steampunk Zeppelin crash-landed in a fairy forest.” It became clear that Steampunk was the perfect avenue to create an elegant, fantastical and imaginative wedding. Steampunk merges the idea of Victorian art and fashion with a science fiction flare. Ray-guns and cowboys, Steam Engines and Airships, Gibson Girl and Princess Leia.
It was important to us that our family felt like they were at a big reunion. Everything was casual, from the hay bales in the ceremony to the picnic benches in the reception. We even had blankets in baskets placed all over the ranch.
We decided on rich browns, deep reds, and other colours of autumn to accent the coppers and blacks. Copper is a huge part in steampunk design, and was also everywhere in our wedding. Tricia Fountaine and I did most of the work. We scoured junkyards, flea markets and strange stores to find everything. Some of my favourite memories from the wedding are all the small details we added to everything to really bring the look of the world together.
Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? You can always find your perfect dress. There are so many amazing resources out there, there’s no reason to ever settle for less than perfect. This goes for any vendor, really. Flexibility and creativity are key to keeping from a melt down. But if something really seems to be fighting you and you feel like you have to make too many compromises, look for another way! Find the path of least resistance and run with it. At the end of the day, as long as you marry the person you set out to marry, then your wedding was a success. Stay present. Take pictures of the PROCESS, not just the outcome.
