14 Unique Wedding Dresses with Capes, Hoods & Cloaks

These designer gowns from the fall 2019 runway are anything but spooky.

Happy Halloween! Whether or not you're planning on having a Halloween-themed wedding or incorporating spooky elements into your big day, we saw quite a lot of cloaks, capes, and hoods on the fall 2019 runway that are anything but frightening. Fitting for a fall or winter celebration, the looks are also especially on-trend for an October fête to create a subtly eerie ambience with your ensemble around Halloween. 

Far from the cape costumes you'll see while trick-or-treating or at a Halloween party, these elegant accessories certainly scream bride. With feathered details, sparkling materials, floral appliqués, jeweled embellishments, and sophisticated bows, choosing to wear a gown that features a cape, hood, or cloak can make for a wonderful alternative to a veil, appear exquisite and unique in wedding photos, and provide the train you desire at the ceremony – with the option to remove it at the reception to make dancing easier.

Take a look at 14 wedding dresses featuring capes, hoods, and cloaks below to inspire your fall nuptials!
