The Dark Bride
Gothic Wedding Dress
I just love a haunting Gothic wedding dress and have recently become a huge fan of author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and her Dark-Hunter® series. Most of her lead characters are influenced and wear Goth- inspired clothing which has inspired me to write about the Gothic Bride. Goth fashion is a clothing style mixed with Edwardian/ Elizabethan and Punk influences. Goth fashion has a dark, mysterious and yes, sometimes morbid look that I find sexy as well. Most Goth fashion styles consists of materials made of lace, velvets, corsets and leather, often adding fishnet stockings and gloves for full effect. To select a Gothic Wedding dress, I would suggests colors in various shades of purple, navy or even white that can be worn as long as there are dark undertones to your look. As an artist, I appreciate the Goth look as a form of self- expression and just being unique. For the future Dark bride who is searching for a Gothic wedding dress and likes her style a little dark and haunting, check out these “Haute” Goth fashions:
