Halloween-themed weddings, and the level of detail and straight-up spooky, romantic vibes are off the charts!
If you’re curious about how to bring the gothic aesthetic into your wedding, you’ve come to the right place.
Whether you’re inspired by Dia De Los Muertos, Halloween, Victorian vamps, or basically anything macabre, here are some killer ideas for gothic wedding centerpieces that you must see.
Black Spindle Candleholders
No gothic wedding could be complete without matte black candleholders. We love how elegant these are with their velvety texture. It adds a bit of an old-style romantic edge, rather than a shiny candle holder.
Switch up the colors of your tapered candles with ivory, blood-red, or dark violet candlesticks to match whatever aesthetic you’re looking for!
Matte Black Macabre Vase
Got the flowers all ready but looking for the perfect vessel? Check out this drippy, macabre black vase. A closer look will put you face to face with one of the three painted skulls on the vase. We especially like the dripping black gloss that runs down the rim.
Gothic Test Tube Stand for Flowers
Want the ornate, black Victorian aesthetic but the freedom to choose your own floral colors? This gothic test tube stand is just what you’re looking for.
You can put anything your heart desires in the test tubes, and the black Gothic architecture of the stand makes it darkly romantic. Voila; thank us later.
Ornate Heavy Duty Iron Candleholder
This one isn’t for the light-hearted (get it?) because it’s a heavy cast iron candleholder! You’ll get a stunner of a centerpiece that screams luxury.
This antique candle holder is just begging for some partially melted candlesticks and dripped wax. Even though some assembly is required, it’s totally worth it.
Death’s Head Moth Decorative Glass Vase
Got a supernatural kind of love? Then you’ll want to feature the iconic Death’s-head hawkmoth, made famous by the movie Silence of the Lambs.
With the symmetrical moon design in the back, this striking vase is made to hold any bewitching bouquet you can come up with.
Halloween Stamped Book Set
Are you and your future partner set on a romantic Halloween-themed wedding? If so, look no further.
This set of stacked books with the big purple rose and black ribbon makes us want to cozy up next to a fire with our sweetie and spend a Halloween together.
Bat Shaped Candle with Bat Skull Inside
Bats are the epitome of all things dark, spooky, and goth, which is why you need this black bat candle. Another reason: THERE’S A BAT SKULL INSIDE.
The candle has a burning time of between 10 and 15 hours, so you may want to start them right before the guests arrive to get the full effect.
g Beetlejuice vibes; vintage, ghoulish, and can be made romantic with lots of flowers and candles.
Red and Black Wood Flowers with White Mason Jar
Planning on keeping it simple with red, white, and black for your wedding colors? This sola wood flower arrangement comes in a white mason jar and is topped with a peek-a-boo skull.
Coffin Planters for Succulents
Do you want some greenery to be included in your centerpieces? If you’ve got a dark sense of humor, check out these adorable coffin planters.
Choose from two sizes of coffins and black, white, gold, silver, and copper for color options to match your wedding theme. We think this would look so cute on the tables to give it just a bit of life… ironically.
Golden Skull Wreath Centerpiece
This spooky and romantic centerpiece features a ring of golden skulls surrounding a red mosaic LED candle.
With burgundy, black, and red roses that have been touched by hints of gold paint, this centerpiece is perfect for a gothic, black-and gold-themed wedding.
“Dracula” Book Wedding Confetti
The scatter confetti is the perfect way to release your inner Classic Victorian Goth during a passionate vampire horror theme wedding celebration, adding a hint of your gothic literature fandom and individual dramatic passion to your unique fantasy special day.
If you and your partner are bibliophiles, you’ve got to see this beautiful Dracula confetti. It comes in both paper hearts and star shapes.
Unleash (and celebrate) your inner classic vampire with a smattering of this confetti on the reception tables. Curious guests may only just have to pick up a handful to figure out which book they were made from!
Dried Black Roses
What’s more gothy and romantic than dried black roses? You can put these in a simple vase for classy, dark aesthetics, or jazz them up with other colored dried flowers for a look that says “till death do us part.”
Stacked Skull Pillar Candleholders
Is there really a line between Halloween decorations and gothic wedding-themed centerpieces? We say no. These stacked skulls would look awesome with an ivory pillar candle.
And to really achieve the melted wax look, you may want to have them lit for a while at home so they’re ready to get all that good wax running during your wedding.
Upright Stamped and Bound Vintage Book Set
There is something so Victorian and gothic about books. Reading in the dim light, falling in love with characters and prose… books are romantic and there’s a reason why they’re used as decoration!
We like these in particular for the stamped skull and wrapped black yarn and twigs. It’s a simple but effective centerpiece!
Vintage Brass Ram’s Head Scalloped Planters
There is a lot of symbolism in the goth subculture surrounding the rams: namely sacrifice, strength, and leaving your comfort zone.
Why not check out these funky brass ram’s head planters. These vintage planters would look incredibly filled with flowers of your choosing.
Burgundy, Black, and Gold Rose Petals
Wanting just a splash of color against the mostly black and white decor? Consider scattering rose petals in burgundy, black and gold all around your tables to give it just a touch of romance.
Gothic Wooden Picture Frames
The versatility of ornate, black wooden picture frames cannot be overstated. The applications are endless!
We see these as centerpieces that feature awesome black and white pictures from your spooky engagement photo sesh, or even some creative, artsy pics that are both creepy and exciting!

It’s perfect for a romantic, Victorian gothic head table with a red and black theme.

There is seriously no end to what can be done with ribbon. We love this mesh centerpiece that features black, silver, and skull-printed ribbons.
There’s also no end to what you can put in the center of this arrangement- they’ve featured a candelabra but you can go nuts with a pillar candle, as well!
