Gothic Wedding Dresses

A Gothic Wedding Dress is a Unique Dress for Your Special Day

Black and White Gothic Wedding DressGothic wedding dresses aren’t just for Goths anymore, they’re being used more and more by people who want to wear a unique dress and stand out on their special day. Gone are the traditional white wedding dresses for many people as they embrace the ideas of using a silver wedding dress, red wedding dress or even one of these gorgeous Gothic wedding dresses.

Now not all Gothic wedding dresses have to be black and some of them are really romantic – like the one in the picture here – it’s floaty and very romantic looking and yet it would also be a perfect wedding dress for the Romantic/Traditional Goth. If this one isn’t the sort you’re looking for then that’s fine I have plenty more for you to choose from further down the page, so let’s go wedding dress shopping!

Black Wedding Dress

Now I wouldn’t really call this wedding dress Gothic in the true sense of the word, but a lot of people consider any black wedding dress to be Goth!

Black Strapless Chiffon Wedding Dress

This is a classic design which means that you could wear it with any type of ceremony – a traditional one or if you added the right accessories and hair style you could totally ‘Goth’ this up!

Made of chiffon it’s the rhinestone waist which really stands out on this strapless gown.

The A-line design is also a very flattering one which makes this a dress that will suit a number of different brides.

Black & White Wedding Dress

Romantic Gothic Wedding Dress

This dress is a lovely mixture of ‘frothy’ wedding gown and romantic Gothic influences and I must admit I absolutely love it!

Black & White Tulle Wedding Dress

This dress has the ‘frothy’ element with the tiered tulle skirt and Gothic undertones with the black embroidered bodice. The lace up at the back of the dress is just another element that I think is gorgeous and makes this a great choice for an unusual wedding gown that will have people talking about it for years to come!

Black & Red Wedding Dresses

Two Gorgeous Gothic Colors

The combination of red and black is often seen in Gothic circles and these two dresses are both different spins on a long Gothic dress that would be ideal as a wedding dress.

Women Halter Gothic Victorian Dress

This style has a Victorian Gothic feel to it which is really due to the skirt, I think the red halter top of the dress adds a little ‘je n’ais se pas’ to the dress and I think it would look great with your hair in an updo walking down the aisle. The back of the dress shows that the top incorporates a lace up corset which is very in keeping with a Gothic dress.

I would love to add a parasol to this dress for wedding photos – I’d probably go with a black one, but red could work as well.


Vintage Plaid Gothic Long Sleeve Victorian Dress

This style is also considered to be Gothic Victorian, but it does look quite different to the previous one. The long sleeves make this ideal for a winter wedding and I think it would be awesome if worn with a black Edwardian ladies riding hat.

In my mind the use of red plaid makes me think of the late 70s early 80s punk movement so I think this dress would really suit anyone who loves the Romantic or 80s Goth look as it feels to me like it belongs in that style.


Gothic White Wedding Dress

Believe it or not some Goths do still want a white wedding dress and this dress fits the brief nicely…

Spaghetti Straps Chiffon Wedding Dress with Long Sleeves

This dress has quite a Medieval feel with the long Gothic sleeves favored by some of the noble women of the Middle Ages.

There are lots of other great colors that look great in a Gothic wedding dress and they include purple, green and even blue.

Short Gothic Wedding Dresses

Of course not everyone wants to wear a long dress to get married in and there are a number of great short wedding dresses available including this purple satin lace up dress.

Gothic Purple Corset Lace-up Wedding Dress

This is a beautiful purple color and is also a very affordable price when it comes to wedding dresses (you could also consider using this as a bridesmaids dress if you’d prefer to wear black yourself).


Another very reasonably priced dress that I would love as a wedding dress, but you may prefer your bridesmaids to wear it is this red and black dress –

Vermillion & Lace Cocktail Dress

Isn’t this dress gorgeous?   I love the black lace overlay on it (it’s also available in a green with the black lace as well so if you didn’t want red this might still work), the lace really appeals to the romantic Goth side of me.   The actual design of this dress is more rockabilly and retro with the sweetheart neckline on the red dress and the keyhole cut out on the black lace part of it.

With the right accessories though you can certainly ‘Goth’ this dress up really well and I also think that there’s nothing wrong with a rockerbilly overlap if it’s the dress you can see yourself wearing!

Short Black Gothic Wedding Dresses

Black is the color that we first think of when we think Gothic and so I decided to start off the search for your perfect short Gothic wedding dress with the black dresses!

The first three short dresses would look great with black and white striped tights and big Mary Jane shoes. Alternatively if you prefer the Cyber Goth look you could add neon tights to complete the ensemble.

A Gothic White Wedding Dress

A White Wedding Goth Style!

Most of the Gothic white wedding dresses that I have seen are actually a longer length and medieval in style, however you can think outside of the box if you really want a white wedding and look at these dresses …..

Now I’m sure you’re saying ‘hang on a minute, what’s Gothic about these two dresses’ and this is where I tell you to think outside of the box. While neither of these dresses are Gothic in any sense they do have good bones which means that if you accessorize properly you can create a Goth look with them.

The dress on the left for example would look totally different if worn with ‘don’t mess with me’ black boots and that’s even without thinking about hair, make-up and wedding bouquets.

The dress on the right is a little harder to envisage on a Gothic bride, but there’s something about the longer fabric at the back of the dress that just hints that there’s more to this dress than meets the eye. Try adding lace fingerless gauntlet gloves for starters, matching lace design stockings, Mary Jane shoes and some Gothic jewelry and the look becomes something totally different.

Short Red Gothic Wedding Dresses

Red is a color that is often associated with Gothic fashion whether it symbolizes passion or blood really depends on what type of Goth you are, for some it could symbolize both.

Red is passionate and romantic which is why it is often a great color choice for a wedding dress and not just for Goths, check out these Red Wedding Dresses if you have any doubts.

This corset style dress is very Gothic in style and would look great when teamed with a black bouquet.

Put the bridesmaids in black as well and it will make you stand out even more in your ‘passionate’ red dress!

This next dress is more retro 50s inspired than what you’d normally think of as Gothic, but it accessorized well this can become a perfect rockabilly/Gothic wedding dress.

The red already contains black as well (red and black being a great color combination for a Gothic wedding) in the polka dots and the trim.

Use black roses in your bridal bouquet and a beautiful Gothic pewter necklace around your neck and you’re starting to look like a Gothic Wedding Fantasy!


Short Burgundy Gothic Wedding Dress

Burgundy is a deep, rich color that is embraced by traditional or romantic Goths especially.

This is another dress with a retro feel to it, but I love the fact that the black material in the front gives the impression of an over dress that was often used in Medieval fashion.

Another great thing about this dress is the color combination of rich burgundy with black – overall this would be a gorgeous nod to Gothic fashion that also has a little hint of individuality to it as well.


Short Purple Gothic Wedding Dress

Purple is one of my favorite Gothic colors and this dress is simply gorgeous. Purple, corset, lace …… what else could you ask for in a short Gothic Wedding Dress??

It is a beautiful dress as well as being very affordable – who said getting married had to be expensive!
