Made for her sister who loves the man in the Iron Man suit (Robert Downey Jr) and Steampunk by Tyann of Delectable Cakes. With gears spilling out from the side, an arc reactor on top and Iron Man’s mask with eyes that actually light up, this cake is pretty awesome.
Planning on doing something different for your wedding day and don’t know where to start? Maybe your looking for a Gothic wedding dress or a Doctor Who themed wedding cake? Or maybe you just want to start at the beginning and find a planner that understands ‘your style’? Well there’s a new wedding show in town, promising to be like no other wedding show you’ve ever seen or been to before.
The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza takes a different approach to wedding shows, catering to couples who want their weddings to be all about them and their personality. Their motto, “don’t be a wedding sheep…..it should be all about EWE!!” A wedding show that caters to all types of wedding styles from the Gothic to the Bohemian to punk rock and geeky. The brainchild of three industry professionals – Sassy of Assassynation, Jo of The Couture Company and Vikki of Lillia, the eclectic trio have all hand picked the suppliers for the show. Chosen for their “talent, customer service and great personalities we are challenging the suppliers to create amazing spaces to showcase their work (rather than your usual trestle table with stuff on!)…this will make it more exciting..!”
Not only will there be some unique and fresh suppliers but also a fashion ‘walkabout’ showcasing gorgeous dresses. Loads of fantastic prizes to be won and some fun demonstrations will be going on for a totally interactive experience, promising to be nothing like you’ve ever seen at other wedding shows. On November 4th, 2012 check out all the Baad Ass Mother-Flockers at the first Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza show taking place at Fazeley Studios, Digbeth, Birmingham UK!

Making your own beautiful boutonnieres and opting out of using fresh flowers is a simple and fun way to save a lot of money on your wedding. These boutonnieres from etsy shop I Do Novelty are a great example of what you can do when you ditch the traditional flowers. Colorful and unexpected they range in themes from Steampunk and Goth to Doctor Who and Rockabilly. Shop owner Kim Brown-Dye talks about how she got into boutonnieres, ”as a theatrical milliner I worked on a lot of theme weddings. Hats for Victorian, Pirate, Day of the Dead, Goth & Steampunk themed weddings were my bread & butter. I always enjoyed working with these alternative brides & grooms, so it was only natural that I create a new business with them in mind.”
