Just for those of us who love the idea of a Halloween Wedding we’ve put together a handy guide to throwing the perfect Halloween themed day of your dreams.
Everything from ghoulishly gorgeous dresses to frighteningly fabulous flowers alongside all the bizarre and brilliant ways you can make your Halloween wedding everything you ever wished for.
Creepy Cake Ideas
Your guests will remember a lot from your Halloween wedding day, mainly your dress but in close second comes the cake. This is a chance to play with your creativity, and your chosen cake designers skills too.
Ask them to help make your spooky day of dreams come true by fashioning a deliciously devilish Halloween themed wedding cake that looks both tempting and terrifying at the same time.
Channel your favourite Halloween movie like The Nightmare Before Christmas or go all out hellish with skulls, red roses, stained glass and black icing.
You could even go for a natural approach taking all the golden rusted colours of autumn and using them to decorate and adorn your haunting Halloween wedding cake.
As the centrepiece of your special day, Halloween wedding your cake is a chance to impress your guests with your bold choice and creative wedding day choices.
Heavenly Halloween Wedding Dresses
A Halloween wedding really gives you the opportunity to step outside the conventional wedding dress box and chose from an array of stylish alternatives.
For floor sweeping glamour choose endless black and grey tulle, long lace sleeves and intricate black beading.
Or instead, invoke your favourite gothic glamour icon and chose a Morticia style fishtail or the rich royal hues worn in medieval times.
You needn’t choose all black either. Alternatively, you can accent an off-white gown with black detailing and give an otherwise conventional wedding dress the Halloween edge.
The elaborate styling of traditional Spanish attire lends itself well to a Halloween wedding, with black lace veils, square-necked gowns and button up gloves.
There’s a haunting beauty in the darker details of a Halloween wedding and your dress will speak volumes about the mood you want to set.
Devilish Décor Ideas
Just because you’ve picked Halloween as your wedding theme, the wedding venue needn’t be decked out like a kids Halloween party. Opt instead to go for dark and decadent glamour with black elaborate candelabras, hanging lanterns, autumn coloured fabrics and delicate tree branches wrapped in chiffon.
Set the mood with plenty of natural candlelight and dress your tables with playful carved pumpkin or skull place settings.
Bring the outside in and turn your wedding venue into an enchanted forest complete with blackbirds in hanging faux tree branches, evergreen centrepieces and leaf-strewn floors.
Your Halloween wedding needn’t be all about black, red-purple, orange, gold and greens work just as well to set the mysterious mood.
Bewitch your guests with an enchanting Halloween wedding day decor on this the most important day of your lives.
Mysterious Masquerade Reception
Keeping your guests from attending your Halloween wedding in fancy dress is simple if your reception theme is an elegant masquerade ball.
Encourage your guests to stick to your colour scheme and theme by asking them to come to a ball dressed in black tie, channelling masquerade balls of the 19th century.
Your buffet could include a selection of trick or treat style sweets and cocktails could be white and black Russians, Zombies and Champagne cocktails with red and black liquors.
Book your entertainment to be more classical than a DJ or find a band who will perform all your favourite rock and roll classics.
Frighteningly Fabulous Flowers
Celebrate nature in the floral arrangements for the perfect Halloween wedding and choose evergreens, pale succulents and feathers for bouquets and pin holes.
Thistles, ferns and lavenders will give a pop of colour whilst keeping things natural and dark.
And of course, a large bouquet of red roses wrapped in fake ivy will always look elegantly enchanting.
Tie everything up with rich ribbons, dark lace or rustic parcel string and add gleaming red jewels or strings of shining pearls for some extra bling.
