Alot of gothic decorations lean a little towards the victorian side – i assume because it makes it more wedding-y.

Here are some of the goth type centerpieces I found, which you could always do in your own colors.

I love your theme! For a while, I’ve thought lacy, black bookmarks with an Edgar Allan Poe quote about love would be a lovely favor at a goth wedding. Romantic, but dark. And not too Halloween-y. Easy to DIY, if you’re into that kind of thing, and therefore you decide how Expensive you want them to be.

For decor, I would go with candelabras, crystals, black birdcages and ravens, and antique books. It would look dark and romantic, but not too much like Halloween. Man, I wish I had done this theme. It would have been so much fun.

And if you had some monkey tail or fiddlehead put into your floral arrangements, that would be so cool. It always reminds me of Tim Burton movies! Dried lotus pods would also offer some really interesting texture.

@Sheevann: The problem with looking for ideas online is that they are often so expensive, that those of us who live in the real world feel like we can’t measure up.

If you need something DIY or at least less expensive:

you can spray paint branches black and add red silk flowers and/or ravens

stencil a vase with an interesting shape and add a  pillar candle

this would be stunning in black bottles

flowers and feathers
