Hallowe’en isn’t exactly one of the more popular holidays to get married on. It just doesn’t have the romantic or celebratory qualities of other holidays, like Valentine’s Day, Christmas or New Year’s. But some couples do set their wedding date on or near Hallowe’en, whether it’s on purpose or because there’s no other time available. And you know what? They take advantage of the day and add a bit of a playful ghoulish flair to their wedding, setting the venue at a historic mansion enshrouded in history and decorating with darker colors, rather than with typical whites and pastels. And of course, the bride can complete the look with her dress and a bouquet of deep red roses accented with black embellishments or pure white calla lilies.
While it doesn’t have to be all out goth, your wedding dress can also be less traditional and playfully goth-if such a phrase exists. Think lots of black lace, fine detailing and unparalleled Victorian extravagance. We don’t call them Hallowe’en wedding dresses per se, but these gowns aren’t for the faint of heart.
