Beautiful Gothic Style Wedding Dresses

So, you're unique and like the Gothic and medieval style.  If you're comfortable wearing the style year round, then why not have a medieval theme and a Gothic dress?

Gothic themes are becoming more and more popular as brides are daring to be different and step away from the traditional white bridal dress.

What constitutes Gothic style wedding dresses?

Red gothic style wedding dresses

Deep dark colors with a dramatic flair. Black, red, deep purple, royal blue, burgundy and deep green are the colors most Goths choose. The accents can be gold or silver.

The above gown featured in red would also look great in ivory. Notice the shape of the long flowing sleeves.

The above dress is less Gothic than the others, however, wearing black gloves with a thick or heavy necklace would make this dress work.

  • If you have a curvy figure consider wearing a tight corset top and flair bottom. For the brides that are a bit heavy, how about an empire waist dress with long draping sleeves and puff ruching at the top of the sleeves?
  • There are many fabrics to choose including rich velvets, heavy satin, lace and a touch of leather.

Additional Thoughts

Gothic dresses don't have to look haunted or ghoulish; they are pieces of art, styled from the medieval or renaissance period.

You probably won't find many Gothic style dresses in bridal saloons so I recommend looking on the internet for your elegant Medieval outfit. All of these fabulous dresses on this page can be found at Gothic Wedding Dresses, however, as of this writing the web page does not load.
