Who said every girl grew up wanting to be a blushing bride? Some had dreams of being the Bride of Frankenstein. For those people, we’ve got a devilishly good selection of gothic wedding dresses and accessories for the perfect gothic style wedding…
What to wear to a gothic wedding
Sugar, spice and all things nice? That might work for Mary Berry – but what if you’re more Mary Shelley?
If you’re after a gothic style wedding, there’s plenty ways to dress. And it doesn’t all have to be Morticia Adams cosplay! What’s often misunderstood about gothic style is that not everything has to be black and gloomy (but, of course, it can be if you want).
For a gothic wedding, you can take inspiration from many of the subgenres and styles in the gothic oeuvre – think rockabilly inspired, think lace, think baroque, think steampunk.
Gothic wedding dresses
So, we’ve established you don’t have to dress up as a corpse bride if you’re after a romantic gothic wedding theme. So what dresses can you wear?
For a start, there’s plenty of 50s inspired dresses that can easily fit into a gothic theme. Think of someone like Dita Von Teese as the inspiration. She’s edgy but still has romantic touches in her fashion. Our online shop has a huge choice of dresses with 50s cuts and swing dresses.
Of course, a lot of gothic fashion is about reinterpreting other images. A top hat could be added to a style for a steampunk, genderqueer accessory. Or you can wear a Disney inspired dress and accessorise it so it has a gothic fairy wedding dress feel.
Other finishing touches for a gothic themed wedding – the devil is in the details
From brocade vests to alt-core chunky heels, rockabilly themed braces and gothic handbags and belts, our range of accessories can pair perfectly with any gothic wedding dresses for a big day that’s intrinsically true to you.
Don’t just say yes to the gothic wedding dress, shop with us to plan the gothic themed wedding of your dreams… or nightmares.
