Vamp At The Vineyard
Love is in the air, and much like all the other elements, air is god damn everywhere at an outdoor wedding. This light and breezy gothic wedding guest 'fit is a personal favourite as I wore this exact outfit to my cousins wedding! The Suspiria Dress is perfect for an outdoor wedding, it's beautiful light fabric dances in the wind and keeps you cool when sitting in that afternoon ceremony sun. I paired this gorgeous gothic dress up with the CAMEL-102 Platform Slides for a splash of gothic edge, to tie in the faux suede of the shoes I took the Cathedral Wallet as a clutch and finished off with my favourite silver accessories - the Nephila Earrings, Spinderella Necklace and for an effortlessly beautiful upstyle, the Abstraction Claw Clip
Garden Wedding Goddess
Under a gazebo, a view of botanical gardens our just a wedding with an ethereal edge, this outfit is the one for you. It's cottagegoth aesthetic is perfect for any goth wedding guest wanting an air of whimsy to their outfit! The Early Mourning Knit Dress with its criss-cross detailing and split leg silhouette is the cottagegoth dress of my dreams! Paired up with the Torment-703 Platform Boots, the delish Itsy Bitsy Chloe Bag with the butterfly hardware and with the high neckline of the dress, I'm finishing the outfit with the Chasing Shadows Earrings and the Blade Of The Goddess Hair Stick!
Gothic Opulence - Black Tie
A black tie wedding as a gothic wedding guest is a dream come true! While you swoon and swirl under the swinging chadeliers you'll dazzle the whole affair in the Loya Satin Maxi Dress! To step up this outfit to black tie standard the Dolly-09 Patent Heels come in a pinch and adding our darling patent Itsy Bitsy Jade bag is a match made in heaven! In true gothic style, the matching Vampira Obscura Chain Choker & Cross Earrings and Sands Of Time Ring give the whole outfit an elevated darkness!
Casual weddings always seem to be anything but the implied! How DO you dress casual and still turn heads? I've got you! The Sanne Slip Dress is already a wardrobe staple of mine and it's gorgeous flowing silhouette and silver hardware are a show stopping yet casual garment to slip in to! Whether the wedding is by the beach, backyard or courthouse, the Camel-109 Platform Sandals have a durable wedge to keep you upright, comfortable and most importantly - stylish! With the open neckline of the dress I paired up the Death Head Halo Necklace and Earrings and finished off the 'fit with Entwined Hobo Bag!
