Goth Inspired…. beautiful dark couture for weddings



Planning a goth inspired wedding? You can introduce elegant soft Gothic inspired elements to full Gothic femme fatale fashion, jewelry, ceremony space decor and reception design to truly make a statement.

Goth weddings are not always about dark colors. Whites and pale colors to purples and deep pinks and bright greens can be seen in the wedding decor. Medieval and punk elements are also mixed into some Gothic wedding design.


Imagine this…..

Your carriage pulls up to the castle you booked for your event, you are escorted to the grounds where your ceremony will be held by horse drawn carriage. At the top of the aisle is your beloved. To the right and left of you family and friends wait breathlessly as you approach.  How sensual would a Vera Wang dress be with some feather and bling crow black pumps? Or a Tova Marc dress with a stunning necklace and Gothic inspired engagement ring. You lower the lights and begin your ceremony. Violins and Harp music plays a haunting rendition of  Canon in D and the guest are seated comfortably in chivari padded chairs with black satin bows fluttering in the breeze and a carpet of blood red roses lay under your feet as you approach a beautiful altar of thorny vines and red and almost black roses and with an occasional spattering of white lilies.


There are many elements in the Gothic culture and lifestyle that you can take and incorporate into your wedding. The color palette ranges from the pales whites, pinks and creams to midnight hues of black and blues. Dark eyes and pale lips and cheeks will help transform you into a beautiful bride as well as dark eyes and deep color lips. Long curly tendrils, messy up do’s , face framing pixie cuts. The possibilities are endless. This inspiration can be achieved with creative lighting in your ceremony and reception space, lots of candles and of course an epic location.
