That sounds incredible, I’d love to see a picture. 


I think that it all comes down to how you accessorise and how you do your hair and make up. If you keep that soft and romantic then you won’t look gothic.

@brideandtattoos:  Is it kind of like this Vera Wang dress? If so it maybe quite hard to make it look less gothic. . I think to take it away from gothic you would have to make it look softer so adding peach fabric is a good idea, so would be peach gloves, maybe a peach sash and I think some pretty flowers in your hair would work really well.


Your bouquet choice could also make it look less gothic.

i’m sure gloves would be fine, it just might end up being something that you put on rightbeforeyouwalkdown so that your son doesn’t have the chance to dirty them- then use them for pictures and take them off the rest of the night!  It’s a great way to lighten the colors and still stay true to your gorgeous dress.

Do you like the concept of a cap?  Or overlapping veil?  Those will lighten your look as well.  Flowers in your hair would be lovely as well!

@brideandtattoos:  Your dress is beautiful! Absolutely stunning. I think flowers in your hair and natural make up with help you look less gothic

@brideandtattoos:  I totally think it could be converted to empire waist!  Do you have some extra length?  Because doing that will raise the hem a couple inches.
