Woweewowowza, check out Offbeat Bride Tribe member Adrianna in her fantabulous steampunk wedding dress. She recently did a photo shoot with photographer, Thomas Doggett at the Illinois Railway Museum and produced some amazing old timey fashion photos.


The dress (and the jewelry) was designed by Nancy Wong of Aerisk Fashion. It was Nancy's first steampunk wedding dress and she was kind enough to give up all the details…

“I was instantly in love with Adrianna's direction for the dress of having influences from the TV series Deadwood and Victorian Fabric and Colors. During the design process of the dress I wanted to keep true to the Victorian era and have design features that punctuates the sci-fi inspirations of steampunk.

“I used a lush midnight blue rose pattern jacquard weave because rich blue gave a very regal look and the pattern made it very classy. This fabric was used for the bolero and bustle. To make the blue pop I used a champagne ivory Sateen fabric for the main dress. Then I used a variety of laces to add more richness to the ensemble. The part of the dress that really differentiates the dress from a traditional Victorian remake is the corset, which is made of a dark chocolate brown vegan leather material and adorned with aged brass color buttons and gold chains.

“This piece really gave the feel of a refined classy gal living in a rough-n-ready cowboy town. Whose knows what this gal is pack'in in her garter belt.”


I mean, look how natural she looks in an old West setting. How cool is that? To see more photos from this steampunky fashion shoot, head over to Thomas Doggett's facebook gallery and get ready to get jealous.

Comments on Adrianna’s incredible steampunk wedding dress

  1. This is amazing… I feel that I need to stop looking because it makes me want to completely change my wedding dress. 🙂 Beautiful!

  2. Wow… this is beautiful! I love that it is steam punk but still maintains the femininity and delicacy of true Victorian. And what an awesome location in the photos! Very lovely indeed.

  3. This Railway Museum is in Union, Illinois! I grew up minutes from here and it would make a great offbeat wedding site for pictures, ceremony, reception, etc.!

    I love seeing Illinois represented on OBB!!!

  4. Sooo not to be crass but your rack is kicken! Are you wearing a normal bra there or is there some sort of old-timey underthings going on?

    As a busty lady I’m always on the lookout for trade secrets.

    • Nothing special and actually I wore just my normal minimizer bra because the dress is so accommodating. The cut of the dress plus the corset must be what’s doing it.

  5. I cannot describe just how much I am lusting for this. Amazing.

    Can we get close-ups of the jewelry?

  6. OMG!! beautiful wonderful! She is gorgeous and feminine and just amazing in these photos. The dress is off the hook!!!!

  7. OMG I didn’t even know a steampunk wedding dress could be done so beautifully. Simply Amazing!
