The Gothsmaid

Satanic bridesmaids

This European Satin strapless bridesmaid dress with attached banded, bowed, and beaded corset around the bodice by designer Bill Levkoff seems a little…demonic for the traditional church wedding, but could be quite the showstopper at a wedding officiated over by a Church of Satan representative.

Perhaps the ceremony could be held in the Goth room of Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, where the Grim Reaper welcomes you at the wrought iron cemetary gates and escorts you through the fog and candlelight to meet your minister, Count Dracula himself, and in place of the wedding march, the bride emerges from within the confines of a snow white coffin.

    The dress is bewitching, but the hair is just witchy.

    By the way, has the injunction against wearing black to a wedding been lifted?

    Actually, I get this whole “East meets West” vibe from the outfit, which is so hackneyed and only popular due to the upcoming ‘Geisha’ movie. Doesn’t the corset look more like an obi?

    I can definitely see the Asian influence in this dress.

    I have worn black to the wedding, but a short stylish A-line frock. One doesn’t want to look like Morticia Adams, after all. Or like someone in mourning. Except at the weddings of ex-lovers, of course.

  4. I too have worn black to a wedding, but it was a very tasteful black dress with white satin trim, that avoided Morticia Addams and funereal territory at the same time.

    As for this dress, I really like it.

    I recently attended a wedding which was black-and-white themed. The invitations, the cake, everything was black and white. The bride’s dress was white (thankfully) with black trim (unusual). The maid of honor wore the same dress, sans train, in black with white trim. It struck me as a little odd, but definitely in keeping with the bride’s personality–she is not a goth, but she wears almost nothing but black and white in her daily life.
