I'm a "goth-leaning" bride that doesn't want a full-on goth wedding, but I do want it to be darkly elegant to match my tastes. We're getting married in mid-October, and I'm trying to think of ways to create a macabre atmosphere, like an "evil forest." So far I'm thinking of having strange flower arrangements with bare branches, spiky flowers, and pheasant feathers. Plus lots of candles.
But after that, I'm stumped. What else could I do in terms of decor to set the dark mood, without resorting to skulls, black and red, etc.?
