Of all the thousands of ways a person could plan their wedding, one of the most intriguing is to honor the love of horror.
Being an individual is critical to horror-lovers. By natures, the goths and the horror hounds tend to know that their interests and proclivities don't fit into regular population, so they become loners often times and isolated. But, when a wedding is called for, it is one time to assert their individuality and say, "I am so okay with what I love, that I want everyone to share in this experience and honor that I am unique."
How often in our lifetimes are we called on to put on a show? Weddings and funerals are the main events for spectacles that include audiences, ceremony, music, and honoring lives.
There are Edgar Allan Poe Gothic, Phantom of the Opera types of weddings that look like something out of a dark castle in the Victorian Era or Medieval Times. Then, there are specific horror-themed weddings including zombies or vampires, ghosts or serial killers. There are also more playful fantasy-related wedding themes. It all depends on the degree by which the couple wants to exert their obsessions and creativity.
There is no greater opportunity for horror theater than a wedding and all the dynamics that can capture the visuals, atmosphere, foods, music, and moods that a couple adores.
Locations can include anything from cemeteries and gothic churches to underground bunkers, dark forests, and empty warehouses. Setting the mood for the wedding is critical.
