It seems that there is a very powerful trend with antique or old century inspired wedding dresses hunts more and more modern brides. The idea of wearing a 19th century wedding dress appears like a breath of fresh air among so many contemporary provocative styles and designs.

Among the most popular types of old fashion wedding dresses inspired by the antique era are: Victorian wedding dresses, medieval wedding dresses, Renaissance wedding dresses, retro wedding dresses or Gothic wedding dresses. More and more contemporary brides are interested in dark themed or black colored wedding dresses such as those Gothic style wedding dresses.

There are many designs, colors, fabrics and patterns that you can choose from in case you are attracted to the idea of wearing something that unconventional on the big wedding day. It all depends on how Gothic you are willing to look. Before you dismiss the idea of wearing a black themed wedding dress or a Gothic inspired gown, you should know that the Gothic style is similar to the Renaissance or the medieval style, and that is why you can design your own Gothic wedding dress style, according to your preferences and your own vision.

Wearing a Gothic wedding dress doesn’t mean that you have to plan a black wedding with an underground theme or with a horror line. Being whimsical is also a great way to express your own way of understanding and expressing the romanticism that gathers between two people.

Many couples today are attracted to this new unconventional way of expressing the modern love. Perhaps you are a fan of the Renaissance period and you want to combine a romantic fairy-tale look with a more unconventional, bold and modern look offered by the Gothic style.

In this case you can choose a white medieval wedding dress with dark colored accents of black, burgundy, deep purple, magenta, brown, dark red, green or blue. There are many gothic patterns that you can find in all kinds of dark colors and materials. Not only the Medieval style can complement a Gothic style wedding dress but the Celtic style or the gypsy style too.

Puffed sleeves, plunging necklines, ruffled necklines, cinched bodices, rich colors, and brocade fabrics such as velvet, cotton or duchesses satin are only a few features of a Gypsy wedding dress inspired from the Gothic style. Keep in mind that red wedding dresses are in vogue, as well as those black, chocolate brown, forest green or deep burgundy colored wedding dresses are very fashionable these days, regardless to the theme you can choose for the wedding. You can opt for a full length flowing Gothic style wedding dress or you can choose a lace Victorian wedding dress with a skin-tight and a form fitting skirt for a more romantic look.11
