If your lifestyle tastes lean slightly more towards the darker side, a traditional light and bright white wedding may not be quite right for you. Gothic weddings can be classy and beautiful with the right planning. Here are three ideas to make your Gothic wedding the perfect special day.

1. Attire

Pop punk princess Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s front man Chad Kroeger had a Gothic wedding in 2013, and their chosen outfits were nothing short of divine. Avril dazzled in a black flowing full length dark princess dress by Monique Lhuillier, and paired it with a bouquet of black flowers. Chad wore an all-black suit to match his bride. For your own Gothic special day, you could take inspiration from the rock celebs, or customise your own wedding attire with blacks, dark reds, and shades of deep purple for a gothic vibe with a splash of colour.

2. Atmosphere

Set the scene for your Gothic wedding by setting it after sundown. Bright midday sunshine doesn’t quite have that sombre feel, so plan for an evening wedding and decorate the venue with atmospheric candles or elaborate candelabras.

3. Transport

The darkest of Gothic couples might opt for a hearse as the wedding transportation. If that’s a little too Addams Family for your taste, a black Victorian carriage pulled by a black horse is the ideal transport for the wow factor.
