Back in the early wedding planning days, I regularly haunted several gothic/fantasy bridal websites and lusted after the myriad gorgeous gowns.
One of those websites was the amazing Uptight Clothing.
The company was formed by Janice Whitehorn who has a background in theatrical costumes and specialises in corseted gowns sure to make any woman feel fabulous in her shape.
I love the dramatic and theatrical look of her creations. The fabrics and colours are so beautiful and arresting.
All Janice’s creations are handmade to order so you will be sure of a very personal service, just what you want for the most important dress of your life!
If you’re looking for something a bit more ethereal or Celtic, then Rivendell Bridal will be right up your street. They make beautiful gowns that are inspired by fantasy, the medieval period and Celtic influences.
Think Lord of the Rings and you get the idea! All dresses are handmade by Emily Jane and can be customised and adapted for you and are sure to make you feel special on your special day.
From personal experience, I can’t recommend the wonderful people at The Dark Angel for fantasy, gothic and medieval inspired gowns. Their products are great quality and very reasonably priced too so are ideal for a bride on a budget.
They offer a really friendly and personal service which meant an awful lot to me when I was arranging the dresses for my bridesmaids and their designs and colours are simply stunning.
Just imagine the gasps from guests seeing you in any of this amazing attire!
