There are longer answers. Steampunk doesn't have to be Victorian, and doesn't have to be derived from the English-speaking world, although commonly it's both.
- I think that's perhaps the best advice anyone could give - find out EXACTLY what your daughter wants. There are so many different and widely varied elements to Neo-Victorian and Steampunk that the number of possible combinations is nearly endless. Find out what elements are essential, what elements are desirable and what elements she doesn't want. Once you understand those things, I think you'll be in a better place to start piecing together her dream outfit. :)

I think it's really most important that you talk more with your daughter.
Sheree's vision of Neo-Victorian, or mine, or yours isn't really as
important as your daughter's and her future husband's. You should sit down
with some common victorian elements and find out what they think of them
(because, you never know, they may think that bustles are totally
non-victorian but fringe should be everywhere).
