It’s extremely easy to incorporate gothic elements into your wedding dress. Look for long sleeve lace dresses, and pair the lace with a bouquet of dark flowers. The contrast will look great in portraits. While getting your makeup done, ask for darker eye shadow and pair it with a dark lip. Your bridesmaids can wear black lace or leather dresses. Encourage guests to dress to the theme by wearing gothic-style clothes. If you are going to plan a Halloween-themed wedding, might as well have fun with it!

In terms of decorations, focus on elements that are not childish or tacky. Black plates on a solid tablecloth is simplistic yet chic. The black adds an element of darkness. Painted gold pumpkins have the potential to be elegant place holders. Perhaps place them on top of the black plate?
Another idea to die for is giving every guest a mask as a wedding favor. Ornate black and gold masks have the opportunity to look fantastic in pictures. Guests will love taking pictures with their masks. This party favor definitely screams elegant and gothic! Candles are a necessity to include on your special day. Hanging candles can guide your guests to where you will say your vows that won’t be broken till death does you part.
If done right, a Halloween-esque wedding can be elegant and beautiful. Both your guests and you will forever remember the frightfully-magical memories that were made that night.
