If Halloween holds special significance for you and your love, why not consider it as a wedding date? There is no wrong way to celebrate your wedding, therefore, you should do it with a pinch of this spooky day and a pound of your own style. Bridal Guide shows you how.
Let’s start. Is your style classic, quirky, modern, rustic or vintage?
Classic Halloween Weddings
With black suits and orange ties, the groom and his guys can celebrate the colors of this day. Mini pumpkins can be used for escort cards. Skulls, witches’ hats, and bats can be used for room décor. Centerpieces can be branches left naturally or spray-painted a high gloss black. Candlelight everywhere makes the shadows grow as the night darkens. Of course, no Halloween-themed wedding would be complete without a candy buffet.
Quirky Halloween Weddings
Take a moment to close your eyes and envision your wedding day. Do you see scenes from The Nightmare Before Christmas? If so, consider spider webs on everything from your walk up the aisle to your reception chairs. A whimsical haunted house wedding cake would work, and when it comes to a setting for your wedding photos, consider your local cemetery at dusk or into the evening. Think black lace, black tulle, and black ostrich feathers for details. Super spooky. Super cool.
Modern Halloween Weddings
Candlelit pumpkins, candy buffets, and costume parties define a modern Halloween wedding. For your reception, why not ask guests to come in costume? It’s like a party in a party!
Rustic Halloween Weddings
From an outdoor ceremony to pumpkins carried by the flower girls to a Halloween scavenger hunt for the kids, a rustic wedding is perfect for the laid-back couple. With orange ballet flats and hanky-hemmed black dresses (leggings optional in cold-weather locations), the bride’s attendants pull the colors of the day together with an effortless appeal.
Vintage Halloween Weddings
A vintage-inspired Halloween wedding is nothing but details, details, details! Victorian Halloween cards can stand in as escort cards or table cards. Invite your guests to join in vintage-era gear or their own Halloween costumes. Spiders, masks, and candy can be used as decorations throughout your reception area, as well as cupcake toppers.
No matter which Halloween style you choose for your wedding, have a “boo-tiful” day!
