It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we've got a lovely tattooed bride in a fabulous green gown, a handsome groom, one sick pumpkin, a wild ride trying to find a venue, and of course… one poisoned cupcake. Eat up, my pretties.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of goth posts.
Megan and Marshall had a spooktacular Halloween-themed wedding in Canada. You'll be seeing more of their awesome event later this week. But right now, let's freak the fuck out all over their incredible Halloween-themed food spread. There are delicious barfing pumpkins, cheese with eyes, not to mention that one of their cupcakes might just kill you.
Offbeat Bride Rachel uploaded these stunning photos of her "red velvet wedding decor" to our Flickr pool. My first thought was "Oooooh, this would be fabulous decor for a Halloween wedding." From the candle-lined aisle, to the corners dripping in blood red roses, you're going to want to have a gawk-out over this decor inspiration…
It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we're drooling over the barbed wire bouquet, the hearse getaway car, the giant pork pie, and the many, many amazingly carved pumpkins by the guests. Plus, you'll never guess which Supernatural star cameoed in the photo booth…
Hannah and Torren got into autumn big time with their steampunk/gothic Halloween wedding in Colorado last year. Hannah's favorite color is green — you might pick up on when you check out the photos of her green hair and green dress! Torren's is purple. Dude looks pretty sweet in his purple suit, y'all. Shimmery, spooky, green, and purple details are everywhere you look.
Give us some sumptuous dark decor, a lush forest ceremony bathed in candlelight, and a super gorgeous gothic couple who totally know how to put an ensemble together. Add in a few D&D and wizard touches, and we're all on this geeky-gothic train. Plus, we love any family who is down for anything as long as there's cake.
I made these boutonnieres for our Pirate Crew, AKA all our friends and family who are stepping up to help staff our wedding. They will help identify the helpers to any guests or vendors who may need assistance with something. They were super-fast, and super-fun.
We're falling into the so-excited-it's-almost-fall trap hardcore. But that's okay: trap us in your cool embrace and crunchy leaves, fall! Here's a little horror and zombies pre-Halloween preview to whet your appetite for the season. The dessert bar alone is to die for… think anatomical hearts, zombie mousse graves, and a cake with a giant bloody bite out of it. It's ghoulishly delicious!
Cannot believe that Nicole and Darin got married in May because this is spooky fall glam at its best. The couple got married at the Pickering Barn last year, bringing the goth style with panache. There's so much dark glamour to love here: Nicole's black dress, her fingerless lace gloves, that amazing short haircut. I also might have included rather a lot of portraits of Darin because I cannot get over his sizzlingly somber makeup. Have a photo of a groom applying his own eyeliner before his wedding. Go on, have two.
The theme of this wedding is "day and night," which is perfectly represented by the colors (white suits and dark purple dresses!) and the cakes, and basically makes our gothic-loving hearts melt. Keep your eyes open for the bride's amazing hairstyle and color, black veils, special toast to the guests, and some killer dance moves from the groom, too!
This wedding is the most amazing combination of gothic cemetery setting and reverent ceremony of two clergy members dressed in their loveliest vestments in a truly gorgeous church. You'll also love the mash-up of traditional hymns and Rise Against at the ceremony! Come check out the gothic splendor of this wedding.
