Army Green -- 2

Idea 2: Use the army green in a minor role - outdoor setting, some greens in your flowers, etc. Focus on keeping the rest of your color theme to black and white.

Steampunk -Honeymoon

Welcome to the Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix Arizona

I'm not sure what to say except that this place looks very nice, and I think I wouldn't want to leave after a trip to the spa!

I've always wanted to see the Grand Canyon

Steampunk -Bouquet

On the Strawberries and Champagne Blog I found some good examples and also a brief how-to for making my own brooch bouquet. I think that I could DIY my own bouquet along with my bridesmaids. Etsy sellers have bunches of old brooches and earrings that would be prefect for this project. Of course I'd need to add some gears and keys to really tie it in with my steampunk theme.

Steampunk -Centerpieces and stuff

I was thinking that I could get a variety of clocks from antique and secondhand stores -working or not and use those as the main part of my table centerpieces with some vines and flowers interwoven.

I think I may try my hand at recreating some inventions with lots of gears and steam capabilities -but I'm not going to make it my only plan :)

This seems like a simple enough diy project for the place cards.

Steampunk -Cake

The details and color of this first cake, make it my perfect fantasy steampunk cake!

The cake was created by Christopher Garren's Let Them Eat Cake .
I found it on Cake Wrecks along with some more awesome Steampunk Cakes.
This design is by Goro Fujita for the CGSociety

This isn't a cake, but I think it could be made into a really cool one if you just made the top of the coach out of cake, bottom out of foam to hold the shape and just build the'd end up with something amazing!
The cake was created by Mike's Amazing Cakes in Seattle, WA and photographed by Libby Bulloff. from Geekologie

Steampunk -Bridal

Now I know that this dress doesn't scream steampunk like so many others, but I thought it was really pretty and had just enough of the look that years from now, my family won't use my wedding dress as proof to send me to the funny farm. Besides, no one said that I can't play up the theme with a few great accessories!

Steampunk -Movie love

Here are two of my favorite movies with some steampunk flavor making them not quite true to Victorian life. Great excuse to watch these again and get some inspiration for my wedding.
Look for Sherlock Holmes 2 in theaters soon!

I love Sean Connery... and I can watch this movie over and over again.

Steampunk -Groomsmen

I was thinking that you could give this pre-styled tux from men's wear house a few good accents and really make it more steampunk.
