Planning a Punk Rock Wedding Theme

First, tips for organizing your punk/metal wedding vision:

Music Selection

Curate edgy playlists of favorite punk, metal, alternative and rock bands to set the ambiance during all celebrations.

Venue Style

Consider raw industrial lofts, gritty warehouses, urban rooftops, or alt nightclub spaces versus stuffy banquet halls.

Food and Beverage

Serve street food, experimental flavors, molecular gastronomy, craft beer, and experimental cocktails versus rigid multi-course plated dinners.

Dress Code

Forget plain black tie attire. Encourage guests to embrace gothic, steampunk, rockabilly, cyberpunk, hippie or other alternative aesthetics. Provide outfit inspiration.


Shun expected floral centerpieces and draping. Instead feature dark candelabras, concert posters in frames, amp stacks, edgy artwork, graffiti elements, and strobe lighting.

Reception Activities

Alongside punk music, get crowds roaring with head banging dance-offs, thrash metal karaoke, body suspension performers, tattoo parlors, hook suspension, and provocative cake smashes.

Punk Accessory Ideas for the Bride

Transform yourself into a badass punk rock bride:

Leather Jacket

Top your wedding dress with a hand-painted customized leather motorcycle jacket, battle vest or jacket featuring band patches.

Spiked Jewelry

Accent your bridal style with edgy spiked chokers, spiked cuffs, pyramid stud earrings, and facial jewels.

Mohawk Fascinator

Traditional veils won’t cut it. Craft a gothic lace bridal fascinator structure and adorn it with a towering faux-hawk instead made of feathers or spikes.

Winged Eyeliner

Amp up makeup with dramatic cat eyes, vivid punky lipsticks, and dark gothic contours. Add glitter, gems and tattoos. Skip demure looks.

Skull Accents

Carry a bouquet wrapped in barbed wire and studded with femur bones, tiny skulls, or anatomical heart charms for macabre allure.

Creepers or Boots

Stomp down the aisle in imposing black leather platform boots covered in graffiti art, studs, and chains rather than dainty heels.

Punk Accessories for Grooms and Groomsmen

Help grooms and groomsmen rock out in style:

Battle Vests

Upcycle jean and leather jackets by decorating them with punk band patches, safety pins, studs, and spikes to make bold statement battle vest and jackets.

Mohawks and Liberty Spikes

Go wild styling sky-high bright mohawks, liberty spikes, side-shaved looks, and other extreme punk hairstyles with hair gel and spray.

Temporary Tattoos

Coat arms in fierce temporary tatts featuring skull, snake, spider, and occult themes before donning sleeveless shirts to show them off.


No need for real punctures – clip on piercings like nose rings, lip rings, and spike ear cuffs transform guys’ looks instantly.

Chains and Locks

Layer metal chains, wallet chains, padlocks, and bike chains over pants, jackets, and boots for seriously hardened punk vibes.

Custom Vans

Hand paint canvas slip-on Vans sneakers with doodles, logos, lyrics and graphics that speak to you using fabric markers and acrylic paint pens.

Punk Accessories for Bridesmaids

Help bridesmaids channel their inner rebel princess:

Leather Corsets

Pair daring leather, PVC, or velvet corsets with tulle skirts juxtaposing materials – sweet yet seductive.

Mesh Tights

Rip open runs in fishnets, tattoo tights, and graphic print tights. Layer over matching fishnets for an edgy DIY look.

Neon Wig

Commit to crazy colored hair just for the event by donning a bright neon wig in green, pink, blue or vivid rainbow hues.


Adorn necks with lace, velvet, or leather chokers, some spiked, some tattoo chokers, some decorated with anarchist circle-A charms.

Cut Off Jackets

Take traditional bridesmaid coverups and add edge by clipping them short, fraying sleeves, adding metal embellishments and hand painting designs.

Belt and Garter Details

Cinch waists with pyramid studded belts, bullet belt accents, and customized painted leg garters above combat boots.

Unleash your creative spirit crafting accessories that capture your shared rebellious personality as a couple. Whether subtle punk rock touches or radical looks from head to toe, make your wedding day homage to your spirited passion!
