Following the release of Beyond Retro’s ‘Beyond the Dead’ video, we thought we’d catch-up with our favourite bridezillas and get their top wedding tips and tricks to make all your dreams of bridal bliss come true... or so we thought..
First up, we're chatting with Miss Melancholia to get the low-down on everlasting love.
Q: What do you love the most about your fiancé?
A: His heart. I’d love to rip it from his chest and keep it in a box till the end of time…
Q: Lucky guy… how did he propose?
A: We went for a romantic night-time walk and reached the edge of a cliff, I told him that my patience was wearing thin and surely he could see that we should be together, always and forever. It was an offer he couldn’t refuse.
Q: Slightly creepy, but okay…what are the key ingredients for a perfect wedding?
A: A groom. Strangely my love has not shown up. I’m still waiting for him to meet me at the altar.
Q: Hmm, that is strange… how long have you been waiting then?
A: 78 years and counting.
Q: Well assuming he does show-up, what would you do on your honeymoon?
A: I’d make sure he knew never to keep me waiting again…
We’re sure he’ll show up soon. Thanks for the chat Miss M!

With Halloween right around the corner we've been busy as zombie-bumblebees, bloodying bridal dresses and stirring up a scare to get you ready for the year's creepiest night on the town! But the costumes are only the beginning. This year, we went for a full-on fright-fest with a special film depicting grisly and groovy brides throughout the decades to inspire your vintage Halloween look. Enjoy this exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of our crafty creative process on set below, and for the full experience, brace yourself and click here. If you dare.
It's a great day for a...FRIGHT WEDDING!

So here’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for, even if it is with great trepidation…
Talk a walk with death and watch our Seven Deadly Brides take a trip down the aisle in Beyond Retro’s Beyond The Dead fright fest. Albeit at your own peril. Watch our Zombie Bride video here.
If you fancy being a bloodied bride yourself but can't deal with all the gore, don't start buying your sexy cat outfit just yet (yes we all know you were thinking it, don't lie!) For All Hallows’ Eve Beyond Retro have launched a bespoke range of pre-bloodied wedding dresses just in time for you to get your spook on. The hand-crafted collection is now available in all UK stores in Soho, Dalston, Brick Lane and Brighton and online here.
