Etsy shop KMKDesigns is the collaboration between a mother, daughter team who work out of their Studio in Stillwater, MN. Their talents came together a few years ago when both found costuming as an outlet for their creativity. Sheridyn has sewn her whole life starting with doll clothes when she was younger, and worked up to making her own prom dresses growing up. Her daughter Kaitlyn, has a degree in fashion and as a child would draw her own clothes for her mother to create for her. The talented duo specializes in designing alternative wedding dresses and alternative clothing inspired by Steampunk, Neo-victorian, Lolita and Gothic styles.

Even in death love lives on for couple Janette and Brian who had a frightfully, fun Halloween wedding. Half of the dynamic duo that runs the fangirl blog Le Geek Janette says, “I can say with all certainty that my wedding day was the best day of my life…I’ve never been a traditional gal so logically I wasn’t looking to plan a traditional wedding.” With over a year to plan, once the date was set the couple sent out their zombie themed Save the Dates and home-made invites to prepare guests well in advance for what was in store for them.

Janette and Brian decided on keeping the ceremony relatively traditional opting for a chapel located at a cemetery to still tie into their theme. Janette wore a white wedding dress and veil with a cobwebbed red rose bouquet the groom a grey suit and matching Halloween themed boutonniere. Being the geeks that they are, after the two were pronounced husband and wife the couple made their exit down the aisle to the theme from Star Wars. Always a great way to end a wedding ceremony.

After the ceremony guests were given time to get ready for the couple’s costumed reception! “All in all, I’m very lucky to have married such an awesome guy that would even be willing to go with a crazy idea like a Halloween wedding. We make a great geeky team.”

“Janette has some great advice for couples planning their own wedding: “DIY is not for the faint of heart, especially with something as stressful as planning a wedding. So time, patience, and research made all the difference. Some good tips I can give to someone who wants to do something similar is A)Discuss a budget, stick to it as closely as possible. B)Figure out what key elements are important to you, and do your research. C) Don’t get discouraged, think of the end result. D) Enlist your friends to help with projects. E) Have Fun! That’s the point right?”

This super easy and quick DIY will add a little bling and Goth style to your Halloween or Gothic themed wedding. These mask table numbers were made by my sister for my Halloween wedding as an alternative to adding the table numbers to the centerpieces ( I also had her make a Star Wars themed one for my co-workers table).

There are only 2 steps to this tutorial: paint your mask, bling it out and your done! Change up the look by painting the numbers with a different paint color instead of using crystals. You can also cover the entire mask with glue and add glitter instead of paint.

When I first came across Gobo Studio I immediately fell in love with photographer Hien Nguyen’s photos and his Tim Burton inspired Corpse Bride photo shoot. With a background in 3d film/animation Hien shoots everything from everyday portraits to zombie themed engagement shoots.

Vow to frighten your guests with a spooky wedding reception dessert table from the talented duo Jason and Heather owners of the Etsy shop Hello My Sweet.

Helping to throw amazing parties on a budget with affordable and creative printable decorations in their shop. The two have put together their own desert table as an inspiration that you can expand upon in your own way. This custom set includes all the printables you’ll need to treat your guests from food tags, treat bag labels, bottle wraps and cupcake wrappers to poison bottle labels, menu signs and even skeleton decor.

This wooden coffin from Etsy shop Buxom Bones makes for a great ring holder for any Halloween or Gothic wedding in place of a pillow, or as an engagement ring box. The plush ruby red satin lining has a small pillow designed to hold a ring.
