Maybe you're planning a wedding with some Neo-Victorian elements? Or a dark rockabilly wedding? Or a ruffled noire antique goth wedding? Whatever the inspiration, you're going dark, and you're looking for some black shoes with a hint of frill for a taste of sinister to go with a day of joy. I gotchoo, friends, with this collection of black shoes with bows of various sorts — peep-toed heels with retro bows on the front, flats for the darkly dapper, and a few randoms to keep you on your toes.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of goth posts.
Serge and Ely wed in Pennsylvania at the Abington Art Center, which proved to be a most excellent backdrop for their vintage and goth-friendly wedding day. The bridesmaids were decked out in mismatched purple gowns, the groomsmen (and officiant!) donned top hats, and an adorable owl and beaver topped their cake. If you're a fan of costumes, you'll totally dig the unicorn mask that the bride and groom took turns wearing during the reception. Thanks to Offbeat Bride vendor Fun and Funky Wedding Photography for sending these our way!
A little goth, a little geek, and a teeny wedding for us to love. Don't miss the awesome certificate of marriage, the very meaningful handfasting cords, the Gallery Serpentine custom corset dress, and the Minuscule-themed cupcakes. Plus, the bride shares some very handy advice if you're planning on rocking a corset. Oh, and you'll love the bride's hilarious way of "proposing." It worked!
Gothic details, a shimmery black dress, lots of skulls, and a sweet little backyard tent for all the loved ones. There was a lot of DIY, and with it, some sage words of advice about self-catering. But our favorite part has to be the story of the father/daughter dance surprise. Get your hanky!
An intricate headpiece, a lush brooch bouquet, a Renaissance-style purple and black dress, and some Nightmare Before Christmas details — it's a wedding any Tim Burton fan would love. With lots of DIY and a casual vibe, everyone seemed right at home. Plus, don't miss the canine ring bearer in a shmancy top hat!
Black wedding shoes might be the most rewearable wedding accessory in existence. Since today is Black Friday (aka the day Americans who don't know about Cyber Monday try to go shopping and mostly just beat each other up), I figured it might be a nice time to look at some of my favorite black wedding shoes.
The bride lives in black, so her dress totally had to incorporate the color. Add in her blue hair (her "something blue"), gorgeous black and white veil, their classic ride, and a tear-y groom, and you've got this gorgeous Aussie wedding with DIY details. Just wait until you see the groom at the beginning of the ceremony. Oh, and wait until you see how a five-year engagement helped them overcome a challenge.
Oh sure, I've done plenty of round-ups focused on skull shoes. But what about just bones? As we wrap up what's been an amazing Halloween week (and some of us recognizing Dia de los Muertos), it feels like expanding my skull focus to include bones feels about right. Of course lots of these are Iron Fist, but you'll find a few surprises tucked in here, too…
