We love to feature rainbow weddings, whimsical weddings, and sparkly beach weddings, but some offbeat weddings are dark, mysterious, and decidedly non-whimsical. That's when goth meets Halloween meets black dresses and jewel tones and Medieval-inspired venues.
It's not all light and airy… sometimes weddings are elegant and moody and so perfectly gorgeous. Let's take a peek at all kinds of goth and dark wedding themes and details…
Blush and bashful Black!
Vanessa and Alexander knew that black and black were their signature colors.
An homage to our #goals couple
Hollianne and Jonathan had lots of references to Gomez and Morticia (spawned by this gorgeous ink!) at their wedding.
Hearts, but darker
Sure, mom, there will totally be hearts at the wedding…
Deadly chic nails
Alexandra knew exactly what type of nails to pair with her gothic Halloween wedding theme.
Moody mismatched centerpieces
This wedding had three goth themes AND these amazing nature-meets-color centerpieces. No flowers required!
Inspired by animation
Animation can be creepy as hell, as we know from Neil Gaiman's book/movie Coraline. These Coraline-inspired table settings are stunning.
Spooky library meets Edgar Allan Poe
From dry ice to skull decor, this Poe-inspired wedding is deliciously creepy.
Nuri and Victor had a Cthulhu-themed wedding with so.many.tentacles. Go seeeee!
Two words: Tim Burton
The costuming opportunities
Metallic meets black
When metallics meet monochrome, we begin to swoon hardcore.
Blood red and purple details
Pops of red or purple always look killer with dark grays and blacks, as you can see in Tash's bouquet.
White dress + dark makeup
‘Til death do us part
Fangs and claws
Exploring fantasy themes is awesome and done SO well at Lady Zombie and Ali Fangsmith's wedding.
