* 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.

* The second ''{{Firekeeper}}'' book, Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart starts off with a wedding between the new heir to Bright Bay and Hawk Haven, former enemies. Lo and behold, it is interrupted by assassins from the former ruler of Bright Bay not happy with losing her kingdom to a proper leader. The bride takes a massive wound, bleeding all over her dress, while her husband suffers only a very minor wound. Which, you know, is bad, because the weapons were poisoned, and bleeding all over her dress allowed the bride to get the poison out of the blood stream.

* ''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]].

* ''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...

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.
