* ''VideoGame/Bloodborne'' has Yharnam, Pthumerian Queen. Lore heavily implies that it was she who gave birth to [[spoiler:the creature that causes most of the problems later on in the game, [[RealityWarper Mergo]].]] The Blood Stains are mainly around her stomach area, leaving some very disturbing implications, but when you fight her it gets MUCH bloodier...

Added DiffLines:

* The title character of ''VideoGame/{{Guenevere}}'' gets slashed during an assassination attempt during her wedding. She isn't afflicted with any lasting damage, but her FairytaleWeddingDress is.

Added DiffLines:

* The teenage purgers in ''Film/ThePurgeElectionYear'' are wearing bloodstained prom dresses when they attack the deli store. One of them makes note that she killed her parents, possibly explaining where its coming from.

Added DiffLines:

* ''American Heist''. SWAT police shoots a hostage taker when their pursuit of some criminals leads into a wedding, leading to this trope (the bride was standing behind the criminal, who'd snatched a little girl as a HumanShield).

There's something about seeing a [[WomanInWhite Woman In a White]] [[VirginInAWhiteDress bridal gown]] which is [[BloodIsTheNewBlack covered in blood]]. The juxtaposition of the joyous event the wedding dress is supposed to signify with the brutality or tragedy that the blood indicates makes for a striking image. The fact that the red of the blood stands out well against the white of the dress adds to this.

* ''Film/KillBill'' -- unsurprising, given that the main character is a {{Badass}} [[KatanasAreJustBetter Samurai-swordswoman]] called "The Bride". (A chapter of the film is even called "The Blood-Spattered Bride", a typical Tarantino filmgeek ref to the Spanish vampire film 'La Novia Ensangrentada'). The final battle was ''supposed to'' involve her fighting in a wedding dress, but due to time constraints, we get the AnticlimaxBoss of [[spoiler:her using a heart-exploding technique on Bill, without him even getting up]].

** In an early case, the imaginary [[http://www.detectiveconanworld.com/wiki/File:EP18_Case.jpg is played straight]] since the poor bride [[BloodFromTheMouth bleeds profusely from the mouth]] after [[spoiler: she's poisoned by her groom in revenge for her OverprotectiveDad's part in the (accidental) death of said groom's mother, 20 years ago.]] [[spoiler:Unusually for this trope, the bride survives and ultimately gets better.]]

* Non-wedding-dress example: about half way through TheBirthdayMassacre's song ''Happy Birthday'', the speaker's black-and-white dress becomes a black-and-red dress. It should be noted that this is the song that gave TBM their name.

* The covers of MyChemicalRomance's "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" and "Life On The Murder Scene" feature a woman in a blood-spattered wedding dress (though it's much easier to tell she's in a wedding dress on the cover of the latter).
* Kate Bush's "The Wedding List": "God help the bride / She's a widow, all in red / With his red still wet."

* Princess Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg (better known as Ena) was the youngest granddaughter of Queen Victoria). She married King Alfonso (the last King of Spain) in Madrid in 1906. During their carriage procession, a anarchist's bomb was exploded which killed many of their entourage including decapitating a guardsman riding alongside the bride. Both Ena and her dress were drenched in his blood. None of the usual post-wedding photos were made - the news magazines carried sketches instead. It was a chilling foreshawdowing: Ena passed on haemophilia into the Spanish Royal Family - as with the Romanovs the heir to the throne was afflicted, the monarchy was eventually deposed (in Spain's case, in 1931) and a bloody civil war ensued.
