Glamorous Gothic Halloween Wedding in Black and Red

Get ready, we are doing a complete 180-degree this week!

Last week I shared a rustic, goth inspired wedding, perfect for a county area with lots of natural landscape to harness, with candles everywhere. This week I present to you a completely different wedding look, created for the glamorous gothic couple that love all things luxurious. Glossy black finishes with the deepest red roses you have ever seen will line every surface your eyes may lay. Black crystals with delicate black lace accentuate everything from the chairs, to the chandeliers in black above. This has the makings of an unforgettable Halloween wedding. All that’s missing is the perfect chamber music faintly heard in the background. Here’s what I had in mind:

A Gilded Botanical Wedding

We’re doing it up like Midas today! Roses dipped in gold, garlands of gold bay leaves, centerpieces featuring gold garlands over crystal….the list of gold elements in this week’s wedding idea board is quite long. But don’t worry! I’ve included all the links below to the sites where each of these images were found.

The inspiration for this week’s wedding idea board actually came about when I was looking at my “Unusual and Unique Wedding Bouquet” board on Pinterest working on last week’s inspiration board. (If you missed that inspiration board, it’s a fun and modern tropical beach wedding. Go see it here.) I had been browsing through that board and saw it. A bouquet of golden roses. Over the top but completely fabulous. I knew I had to do something with it.

After thinking about it a little more, and looking back at some of the other posts I did with gold, I wanted to try something different. Botanical elements kept catching my eye, so I opted to feature lots of different types of gold leafs and foliage elements.

Here’s what I had in mind:
