Heather and Errol are high school sweethearts who love horror movies and punk, and a little bit of each was injected into the theme of their Canton, Georgia wedding. Heather, a hair stylist, rocked hot purple locks with her vintage dress and DIYed glittery shoes. From the Bride of Frankenstein cake topper to the record guest book and live painting they had done of the ceremony, the details of this punk meets horror wedding are killer.

  1. I absolutely love this! This wedding is so beautiful! I see so many brides with this beautiful non-natural colored hair. This is my favorite <3 <3 Unfortunately, I work in an environment that doesn't allow me to have hair like this. Anyone have any tips in potentially dying your hair right before your wedding and dying it back 2 weeks later.

    • Hello Jellybeanqueen. Cosplayer here. How long are your real locks? I have waist length hair and tend to wig it up when I want to change the colours. It's a great way to alter things drastically without dying your hair (whatever your no-dye reasons). Just make sure you get a good quality wig, preferably a real hair one (the plastic ones get HOT!) and you can wear it all day, heck in some ways it's even easier than using your actual hair. You can style it in advance, attach it to you head and presto! Insta-bride!

      • Thank you so much for your response Sarah! My natural hair is strawberry blonde (more strawberry than blonde) and about 3 inches past my shoulder. I like your wig idea, I've just had a bad experience in the past with them…I actually cosplayed as Black Canary for Boston Comic Con a few years ago and the wig made me itch like nobodies business and I ended up with little red hives across the cap line. Know of anyway to avoid this issue? Or anything I should be looking for in wigs that might be causing this reaction. This was with natural hair too and you say the plastics get hot which is an issue because I'm getting married in So. Cal ๐Ÿ™

        Edit: my husband to be says he would rather have my natural color than a wig. So that settles that.

        • Oooo errr that sounds horrible! If it was around the 'scalp line' of the wig it might have been the attaching bit (can't think of what else to call it) between the wig hair and your skin. Rather than the wig itself. These bits can be made of really rubbish plastic fibres which irritate the skin.
          Try hunting around for wigs for people who have had chemotherapy etc (My mum has a few from her time as a warrior) as they're specially designed to be kind to sensitive scalps. The only other thing I can think of is either a) esoteric allergic reaction or b) sweat rash (which I don't really suffer from because I have a REALLY dry scalp)

          Also (I imagine with BC) was your costume pretty body-covering? I've done wigs in hot weather, you just have to think about it like you're wearing a hat. I tend to make sure I have things like bare shoulders so I can shed my heat elsewhere and take care with hydration. (Little tip, those cooling headache strips you can get from the pharmacy, stick some in areas that no one can see to keep your temperature from getting too high.) Another option to add a bit of colour would be extensions, get highlights/lowlights etc to combine with your (Strawberry blond so pretty!) hair which would give you the colour flash with a quick removal after…

          *thinks* I suppose the best thing to do is, like with any wedding idea, try it out, test it into the floor so you don't spoil things on the day.

          • You are absolutely amazing Sarah, thank you so much for your advice. <3 <3

          • Be sure to post pics of you in all your colourful fantasticness and I'll call it quits ๐Ÿ™‚

            (I do hope you're on the FB group, because loads of people are really helpful over there on questions like this)

            1 agrees
          • Haha I will. I'm on the page but not a "group"

            Hoping to be my own offbeat bride, getting married at a reptile shop down there seeing my Fiance and I both work with well, reptiles…figured it was only appropriate. It's on Halloween too ๐Ÿ˜› I should probably be happy with how odd it sounds in general but you can always add more. I just saw this brides hair and it absolutely amazed me. Wanted to do that into a side fishtail braid with little spiders in it…but natural or highlights will work well enough.

            This is what happens when your family says "Just do what makes you happy and we'll throw you a formal reception when you get back"

          • Sounds awesome. If you message Ollie B. Trothed on Facebook they'll get you into the Tribesmates group.

  2. Wow! Absolutely love this! kudos to the couple who tried something unconventional at their own wedding, something which people avoid doing! I completely love the bride's hair color, it blends in with the wedding theme perfectly. My friend who recently got married at http://theaddisonofbocaraton.com/catering-in-boca-raton, had a similar theme, but instead of coloring her hair she preferred to wear a wig!

    1 agrees
  3. This is very nice! I like the favors and the simplicity of this wedding. This is the kind of essence that we want to capture when our daughter gets married. I'm planning this for my blog and will be posting this while explaining that this is what we want to capture.
