Lady Amaranth and The Gothic Wedding Dress

Like it needs to be said - the wedding dress is the gown of all gowns! Quite possibly the most influential and important outfit you will ever wear in your life if you do decide to go down the isle! Brides-to-be spend months, if not years fantasizing about that perfect dress for their big day and why not? It is so important to get it just right as all eyes will be on you!

The wedding dress is the centre piece of the wedding. The media speculation on what Kate Middleton wore on the all important wedding day last year was rife for months before. There were comparisons with the extravagance of Princess Di's wedding dress. A fantastic wedding dress will transcend the decades, the more extravagant the better! We have seen some amazing dresses in our time but check out this stunning Black Gothic Wedding Dress from Sinister.

As our regulars will know The Gothic Shop likes to stock a good range of Sinister, a brand that is the epitome of the Gothic style. They are a brand that are certainly not shy when it comes to creating some real stunning statement pieces.

The amazing photographs of Lady Amaranth taken by Mark Perry Photography speak volumes for themselves! This hauntingly beautiful Black Gothic Wedding Dress by Sinister is made from over 90 metres of black lace combined with black taffeta, mesh and velvet! There is an air of fantasy and dark romance about this gown, perfect for any autumnal or winter wedding. The structured bodice has everything Victorian about that Gothic look. Designed to create that archetypal feminine hourglass figure, the corset style top adds shape to more bustier bodies and curves to those with slender frames. The very intricate detailing on the centre panels and seams only add to the whole effect.

All this culminates in the large eye catching tulle style skirt with train feature. The metres of black mesh sit underneath the lace and taffeta frills and bring gothic glamour to the whole ensemble. The only way to wear this dress is with the addition of a hooped petticoat, this will give you a full skirted effect just perfect for any Gothic wedding.

The Black Gothic Wedding Dress from Sinister is certainly one to turn heads, it's alluringly beautiful, feminine and everything a darkly decadent wedding dress should be!
