Emo Wedding Invitations

The first step in creating an Emo wedding theme is to set the tone with your invitations. Consider using dark and moody colors like black, red, or purple and maybe even incorporating elements like skulls, roses, or spiderwebs. Adding some Emo song lyrics that mean something to you to your invitations would be a nice and personal touch.

Sky is the only limit to your creativity. Inspiration is everywhere when you are looking.
We are aware that people can’t tell the difference between Emo and Goth. Ignore them when making decisions. Use your own style as your guide.

Emo Wedding Venue(s)

When it comes to the venue, think outside the box. You could go all out and make it all Emo themed or you can choose different locations for different parts of your wedding day. An abandoned warehouse or a dark and moody forest could be the perfect backdrop for your Emo wedding. If you’re looking for something a bit more traditional, consider a gothic-style church or a historic mansion with a dark history.

Emo Wedding Decorations

When it comes to decorating your Emo wedding, it’s all about creating a moody, dark and romantic atmosphere. Consider using black candles, lace, velvet or even dark flowers. Think about black dahlias or red and/or black roses. You can also incorporate Emo elements like vinyl records, band posters and/or vintage horror movie posters.

We’re not saying that you should have this at your wedding. But DANG, it’s cool, right??

Emo Wedding Attire

When it comes to attire, an Emo wedding is all about expressing one’s individuality. For the bride, consider a black lace gown or a vintage-inspired dress with dark details like velvet or lace. For the groom, a black suit with a skinny tie or a vintage-inspired vest and suspenders could be a perfect choice. Don’t forget to accessorize with Emo elements like skull jewelry or studded belts.

As far as your bridal party is concerned, it is totally up to you. Have them each choose their own Emo style of dress or suit. Maybe some guidelines from you would be a good idea.
