- Wedding: October 2016 - Whitby Abbey
This is my first time posting! I’m a Gothic bride-to-be and i’ve been looking for a gothic wedding dress that isn’t too cliche and think I have found the perfect one for me 🙂 The only problem is I can’t seem to find anywhere that stocks it in the UK 🙁 I was just wondering if anyone could advise on where I could find a dress like this but with sleeves in the same style? The only place I’ve been able to find this dress is in Australia and they order it from China, check it, then forward it on to the purchaser which I found a bit odd. I’ve enquired about having it made and so far no one is getting back to me with a quote so any advice you could give would be muchly appreciated 🙂

Well I have seen quite alot of very similar dresses from wedding dress designers or as prom dresses. So i am sure if you search for just black and white dresses there will be something in actually store you can try on.
I like the dress though I has some of your style but not too over the top which could easily happen with a ‘Gothic ‘ theme. Depending on your taste maybe vintage dresses they normally have sleeves with all the accessories could fit the theme in a sort of ghostly traditional way.

I was just on their website love! I believe it takes them a few hours to reply back due to different time zones. I know you may not want to do it, but have you considered going through a shop from China? There are many reputable shops, but you have to look for them. How about Etsy? It’s guaranteed that they’ll have someone or various shops that could help you out. I’ll link some of the shops in a post 🙂

I’d stay away from any online store that looks like it’s makkng dresses in China.
You may be able to get what you want from a mainstream dedigner – how about these dresses from Allure?
Neither of them have skeeves, obvs, but you could create that effect via a bolero, e.g. these black ones from Tulip Bridal.
If you insist on going outside an established dress manufacturer I would strongly advise against a Chinese manufacturer.
You could try Wedding Dress Fantasy – they’re based in US and specislise in coloured and gothic styles and also :

That dress is gorgeous! My only piece of advice is that if you go through a foreign shop, just remember to budget import duties into your budget. If that’s the only way you get the dress you want, it will be worth it in the end to go with a reputable shop in China or elsewhere. But from what I’ve read on other threads, it can cost up to an additional 20-30% depending on what it is or how much it costs.

Where abouts in the UK are you located? I got my dress from a local shop who stocked Victoria Kay dresses, she does quite a few different coloured styles but I think will also do custom colours. I also found a shop in Worthing on the South coast that I was going to visit but I found my dress before I went there, they do all kinds of custom things and have a shop wher eyou can try things on, or order a sample:
