“Magic is really very simple, all you’ve got to do is want something and then let yourself have it.” Aggie Cromwell
We are celebrating All Hallow’s Eve with a look at some beautiful and bold black bridal gowns. We think black wedding dresses are the perfect choice for Halloween ceremonies, goth brides and anyone wanting to make a statement on their wedding day. It is also a beautiful choice for all of you fashion forward brides who want to avoid the traditional ivory look! So in honor of the season, please enjoy these beauties from The Gilded Gown. And we’ve included some spooky words for you, too.
Romance, who loves to nod and sing,
With drowsy head and folded wing,
Among the green leaves as they shake
Far down within some shadowy lake,
To me a painted paroquet
Hath been—a most familiar bird—
Taught me my alphabet to say—
To lisp my very earliest word
While in the wild wood I did lie,
A child—with a most knowing eye.
Of late, eternal Condor years
So shake the very Heaven on high
With tumult as they thunder by,
I have no time for idle cares
Through gazing on the unquiet sky.
And when an hour with calmer wings
Its down upon my spirit flings—
That little time with lyre and rhyme
To while away—forbidden things!
My heart would feel to be a crime
Unless it trembled with the strings.
