10 Gothic Offbeat Bride Weddings

No, no, not to worry, I'm not planning on tying the knot quite yet. We're in the midst of wedding season, though, when the weather is warm enough for people to be outside for receptions and what not, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite spooky weddings from Offbeat Bride, a website and forum dedicated to non-traditional weddings, including budget, Nerdy, DIY, Metal, Rockabilly, Steampunk, etc. Of course, I gravitate right toward the Gothy ones, so here are my ten favorites:



If you were to plan a Gothy wedding, what details would you include?

  1. Oh god - I thought I was the only one who spent far too much time on Offbeat Bride. It's all but put me off getting married for realising how difficult it is planning the wedding, but there are so many gorgeous weddings.

  2. weddings definitely don't need to be so fussy. I always wanted a crazy theme wedding but when it came down to planning and paying for it, it seemed like the worst idea. Our wedding was still pretty awesome (a historic mansion by the lake, gypsy live music, awesome cake) cost almost nothing and was a blast. I think it's absolutly insane to devote so much time and money for something that lasts a few hours. That day was such a blur that seemed like it was a few minutes.

  3. I'm having my wedding this October, and I will be wearing a black veil and a black and white wedding dress custom made for me. No theme really, just black and red for the colors :)

  7. I would definitely like an autum wedding, because I don't like the summer. I also love the wedding dress from Corpse Bride and would like to have the wedding in a castle or a stave church.

  9. I'm hoping to get married in winter so I can use ivy and greens (which go with my natural red hair) and so there's generally a more somber tone without being in your face goth and his parents and family aren't as accepting of the subculture.
    My parents had a medieval wedding (full historically accurate costumes) in an old ruined chapel at the top of our local castle (you had to be married in a church or something in those days and they weren't Christian) they were the first to be married there in hundreds of years and as far as I know the last :)

  10. Congratulations on your Engagement, let the fun begin. Start with your engagement announcements, maybe a notice in the newspaper to inform the community or an item that you can send in the mail to let your friends and family know the good news!ISD Sternentaufe
