Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/MidsomerMurders'': In "Till Death Do Us Pass", the second VictimOfTheWeek is shot with ball bearings while modelling a wedding dress at a bridal show, leading to this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Victorious}}'', Jade wears one of these. It's supposed to be a replica of a prop from her favorite horror movie.

Added DiffLines:

* Grace, the protagonist of ''Film/ReadyOrNot'', is forced to become an ActionSurvivor on her wedding night when her in-laws subject her to a [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame hunt of the most dangerous game]]. Over the span of the film, her lovely white dress is increasingly ripped, torn and splattered with blood and gore. By the finale, it's practically become a uniform, dull red.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/BurningBridgesBuildingConfidence'' opens with Marinette having a nightmare about Lila hijacking her wedding, showing up at the church in her own gaudy wedding dress and stabbing Marinette to death. Marinette's 'friends' then proceed to accuse her of faking it for attention, while Lila stands triumphantly splattered with her blood.


What a bride might wear when her WeddingDay goes ''really'' bad. May overlap with EtherealWhiteDress if its implied that the bride died in the dress. Compare with WhiteShirtOfDeath, BloodstainedGlassWindows and SnowMeansDeath. See also WeddingSmashers, which more often than not causes this. May overlap with WidowedAtTheWedding.

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.

* Wrestling/SuYung's {{Red Baron}}ess is "The Undead Bride," sometimes changed to "The Undead Bloody Bride," and she is a StringyHairedGhostGirl who does come to the ring in one of these.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/Ms45'', the last man Thana shoots at the Halloween party is dressed as a bride, and he slumps to the ground with blood all over his dress.


* 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 before Juan Carlos) 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.

* ''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]].

* The UK ''Crime And Investigation Network'' has a {{Trailer}} for the show ''Snapped: Women Who Kill'' which shows us a bride. The narration asks us what we would do if we were getting our wedding dress fitted when our groom-to-be phoned up telling us the wedding was off. The camera pans back to show that the bride is holding a gun and that her gown is covered in blood.

* It wasn't a wedding dress, but the horrific humiliation of the titular character of ''{{Carrie}}'' with the pig's blood saturating her prom dress is real close.

* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' plays this trope to a T, complete with minigun for Calhoun to extract revenge. (And a preemptively armed audience to prevent a repeat, at her second wedding.)

* Played with in ''FanFiction/WhiteDevilOfTheMoon''. Miyuki's bridesmaid's gown gets blood on it after youma attack during her brother's wedding (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 was [[BadassFamily one of the very few people]] not participating in the fight.
