Gothic-style fashion is for those who love the 'dramatic look' of darkness, mystery, and weirdness. And while many people still think gothic is associated with vampirism and satanism with secret members who wear mostly black clothing, have a pale complexion, jet-black hair and dark dramatic makeup, the wedding fashion scene think otherwise.

Gothic-inspired bridal veils can be made from tulle, lace, satin, velvet, and voile fabrics and can come in plain white, red, or black colours. They can also be made into flowing wedding capes (or church chapel head veil style) made from patterned materials like sateen, embroidered fabrics, illusion tulle, netting and silk. Colours can be a combination of black and red, black and purple, white and beige, or wine and purple.
Asides wedding ceremonies, gothic veils and medieval-style dresses are popularly worn as party costumes for vintage-themed or other costume parties.
