Would you dare to choose a spooky Halloween theme for your wedding? It doesn’t have to be a mess of black and orange! If you’re brave enough, here are our top ten ideas for creating a Halloween wedding that is stylish, not scary.
1. Perfect Pumpkins
Pumpkins are a great way to decorate your Halloween wedding, and messy carving is not always required! This is ideal if you are looking for a more rustic and natural Halloween feel. Hollowed out pumpkins are perfect to use as lanterns to line the aisle for your ceremony and halls of your venue; while painted and lace embellished pumpkins are stylish and elegant way to bring in just a touch of Halloween goodness.
2. Little Black Dress
For the daring bride, a black dress on Halloween can look gorgeous and dramatic.
3. Trick or Treat
Treat your guests to Halloween inspired food and drink
4. Gothic jewels
Add a touch of gothic elegance to your outfit with a bejewelled choker
5. Dramatic venues
A Halloween theme wedding will work best in a dramatic setting. Think castles and manor houses with high ceilings, gothic vaulting and winding staircases.
6. Literary Greats
Take inspiration from classic horror books such as Dracula, Frankenstein, and the works of Edgar Allen Poe.
7. Dark Details
A black palette for little details such as table numbers, favours and centrepieces will create a spooky atmosphere.
8. Movie Madness
Let scary movies serve as inspiration for your table names and cake
9. Fearsome favours
Treat your guests to spooky favours and escort cards
