Get that perfect dark floral wedding theme for your big day with these top tips!

Flowers and floral patterns go hand-in-hand with weddings, but sometimes bright shades and delicate pastels are just not the ideal colours for you and your venue. We take a look at how to get a perfect dark floral wedding theme running through each aspect of your day, a theme that would be just perfect for a gothic wedding!

Cakes

Let’s start off with a show-stopping wedding cake, shall we? Make a real impact with monochrome icing and decorations, or combine with bold coloured flowers for a truly striking look. We think these examples would look amazing at any gothic wedding.

Décor

Choosing the right venue is key, but dressing it correctly and creatively is just as important. Think plenty of candles, rich patterned fabrics and an abundance of deep-coloured flowers for a dramatic look that’s full of grandeur.

Wedding Dress

Groom

Grooms aren’t restricted to just a straightforward suit either and there are plenty of ways you can do things a bit differently on your wedding day. Look sharp and stylish in all black and tie in to the dark floral theme with your tie or buttonhole.

Bouquets

If the rest of your day is going to be quite dark coloured, then your bouquet is your chance to add a pop in a few pops of bold colour to your look. There are loads of options out there but we love the deep shades and bold flower choices in these.
