Anyways, I also find wedding folklore and traditions fascinating. How can I subvert the norm without know what I am doing??!
I know I have mentioned this before in my post entitled Steampunk Wedding Etiquette, but I recently found a great deal of awesome titles that I would recommend for research sake! (I love my cat but he has been MEOWING NONSTOP for the last half hour--it is driving me crazy!)
Folklore and Traditions
The two that I've found are ok. They aren't fantastic and they are very old books. I can't even find cover photos. I am sure there are better ones out there, I just have yet to come across them. Suggestions are welcome.

This has pictures upon pictures of various styles! It is so much fun to look through and gain ideas!
SO MANY PICTURES!
A lot of these ideas are a little too late in the 20th century for my liking, but the interesting part is in the back: sample menus, playlists and other things for each decade! Very informative.

Fantastic pictures and suggestions! Perfect to research for a signature drink!
Hmm. Maybe I should write a book on Steampunk weddings...
