For lovers of Halloween, or the dark side of life in general, a Halloween themed wedding could be the perfect setting for your wonderful day.
You may have doubts, but we’re here to show you it can be done!
Firstly, it would be good to consider what aspects you really love about Halloween; The legitimately terrifying, the quirkiness, the pageantry of the costumes? Whatever it may be, embrace it! Your love for each other and your love for Halloween is sure make an unforgettable memory.
We’ve compiled a few ideas for you to sink your fangs into!
Small changes can make a huge difference. A nighttime wedding for example completely changes the dynamic, what was once light becomes dark, what was once dark becomes light. A similar effect can be made with thematic lighting, such as using candles or devilish red and purple tinted lights. These are cost-effective ways to create an eerie atmosphere.
You can get creative with this, having skull or pumpkin centrepieces for example. Webbed or otherwise dark linen can be draped over the tables.
Of course, no wedding is complete without matching bridesmaids. We’ve covered Bridesmaids’ dresses before, and the same general rules apply. You can see some ideas here (click for bigger view):
While you’re at it, you could include your guests in the Dress-Up department. A wedding packed with ghouls and gremlins (or Mario’s and Astronauts if that’s your preference)is sure to set the atmosphere.
Halloween is fun, enjoy your time in the moonlight, let the darkness consume you and revel in Gothic Romance. When the underworld comes upon us, dance with the spirits and twirl with the spectres. Enjoy your night, it’s sure to be spooktastic.
