* During the worst periods of the pogroms in [[TsaristRussia Imperial Russia]], it was not uncommon for anti-Semites to seek out new brides specifically as targets for their violence as a symbolic gesture (since the brides would eventually bear the next generation of Jewish children). Since custom in the brides' communities dictated that the dead be buried in whatever they were wearing when they died, several of these young women were laid to rest in their bloodied wedding gowns. (This, incidentally, was the origin behind the folk tale that inspired ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride''.)

* Played with in ''FanFiction/WhiteDevilOfTheMoon''. Miyuki's bridesmaid's gown gets blood on it after the fight breaks out (she also uses it to wipe off her sword afterwards). The actual bride's dress did not end up like that (not as severely, anyway), as Shinobu wasn't participating in the fight.

* One of the sample characters in the ''[[TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil Hunter: The Vigil]]'' sourcebook ''Slasher'' is the Painted Bride, a woman possessed by the spirit of a murdered bride who manipulates other brides into murdering their groom-to-be. For her, the blood splattered dress look is permanent; if she wears other clothes, the colors turn white after a couple hours, and red streaks begin to appear on her chest after that. Likewise, as a Legend (think ''Film/{{Candyman}}''), her means of possession/summoning usually involves the bride getting something red on their white dress.
