I have decided to definitely go with a theme for my wedding. There are MILLIONS of options for themes, but only one incorporates every detail that I just adore…and that is steampunk.
(I just think Sherlock Holmes with a sci-fi twist…hah.)
I have NO idea how to even begin telling my Mom (who is helping me with the wedding plans) that I want to do this kind of wedding. She’s very modern, and sparkly, and white with pink and tasteful and BLAH, IMO.
This is the style of dress I want, hands down.
And the one above is something my Mom would want me to wear. Sigh.
Basically, I need advice on how to tell her that it WILL be the theme I want, and get her to agree to helping me.
My Fiance (a man after my own heart) adores the idea of Steampunk, and is 110% for it. His parents are excited. We had planned on dressing the entire wedding party in steampunk-inspired clothing, and then telling our guests they could dress this way as well (Can you imagine the awesome group picture??) But I’m terrified my Mom will flip out.
