Steam Engine Train Theme Wedding Inspiration

by Jenna

When one of our readers asked us for inspiration for a train themed wedding, we were immediately smitten with the idea. While traditional weddings will always be beloved, more and more couples are trying new ideas to personalize   their special day to make it even more special. And as we brainstormed and researched how to best incorporate steam powered locomotives into a wedding ceremony and celebration, we came to appreciate just how romantic a train themed wedding could be. Nostalgic and sentimental, what a perfect theme for a wedding. 

Steam Engine Train Themed Wedding Invitations

Remember, the invitation you choose will set the tone for your entire celebration so take time to thoughtfully consider how you want to create the beautiful, meaningful, festive celebration you and your partner have always dreamed of hosting.

Don't forget the vintage postage stamp!

And in this situation it is more than ok, in fact, preferred to mix and match stamps.

Steam Engine Train Theme Wedding Party Table Linens

A tablecloth or table runner can add a great touch to any type of party. For this themed wedding, think light and delicate like these lace and gauze fabrics.

Steam Engine Train Themed Wedding Party Centerpieces

These mini luggage trunks are great centerpieces because they are fillable and customizable. Monogram the tag and fill the case with flowers and trinkets, like this copper train. These trunks would be especially great on your reception or food tables. You could even fill them with your guests' name cards.

For a more elegant look, we found these same suitcases styled 2 different ways. As you can see, these suitcases can be spray painted any color you choose. To add just a touch of your steam engine theme, consider attaching a Sterling Silver Steam Train Charm to the suitcase or even a Mexican Train Domino Metal Marker. Alternatively, place a model train or even a a pewter train bank in the suitcase along with the flowers. And again, you can spray paint everything to match your color scheme.

When we think of the train station, the iconic lights and copper details are often top of mind. These candelabras and lanterns would look lovely lining your tables.

We also think these lamps are great. Instead of putting these on your guests' table, set them up on your reception or buffet tables. They will add a unique and cheeky pop.

These cardboard train cars are customizable, affordable, and would look lovely with some flowers poking out. Try placing them next to the railroad crossing lamp on your communal tables.

We also love these copper cans for just that perfect touch of steam engine. Wood slices underneath add a nice, elevated touch.

For the true train aficionados, these steam engine models are also a great centerpiece. Get a different one for each table and surround them with flowers to make it wedding appropriate.
