Till death keep us together.
The gothic subculture is all about alternative lifestyle, which is associated with being out of the dominant culture. Goths, as open-minded persons dont care expressing their passion to vampires, death, macabre art, dark life and ofcourse their love to each other in the wedding day.
A good gothic wedding ceremony has more than black clothes, its a combination of diffrent themes that rooted deeply in the gothic subculture, such as: mevidal and victorian ages, graveyards, vampires, faires, castles, ghosts and Halloween. Or everything that is dark, mysterious and dramatic.
Gothic weddings are more about two goths sharing their love, its also involves families and close friends. Therefore, you must be sure that you wont scare them off, after all they are your guests. If they are not totally devoted to the dark side of life like you, you might consider combining non-gothic theme in your beautiful wedding. For example: dont use only dark colors with all your clothes and decorations, the bride can be dressed in the traditional color white, use some candlelights so it wont be very dark like a bat cave. And generally try to ballance your dark themes with more mainstream elements, So even the non-goth will enjoy the wedding. Who knows maybe this first introduction to the gothic lifestyle will impact them, and you will be a guest in their own gothic wedding.
