Don’t worry, we’re not talking green and purple witches dresses, we’re talking classic wedding gowns with a ‘gothic’ edge that can be accessorised in a way that would make it perfect for a Halloween wedding! Features will include intricate lace, beautiful sleeves and decorative beadwork. Warm tones add a medieval feel to these designs while a variety of fabrics offer different textures to them.
Before we show you our favourite designs, we thought we’d share some striking ways to style these gowns for a gothic or halloween wedding!
We adore dark red roses for a gothic look or if you’re wanting something super unique, you could include feathers and/or brooches.
Statement necklaces are the perfect accessory to give these elegant dresses that gothic edge you’re looking for. We particularly like the black and red stones that add a sense of romance and mystery.
Typically, we love a dramatic makeup look for this kind of style. That being said, we don’t need to completely discard a more natural look.
Lace, flowers, velvet and bows… whatever your preference, some sassy shoes are an absolute must!
