As Halloween creeps up on us all, it’s no surprise that many brides out there are planning the perfectly scary Halloween themed wedding! Whether it’s the focus of your big day, or whether you add a little bit here and there, there’s always plenty of ideas and tips to help make your day one to remember. So, here are some extra pieces of advice to truly make this a standout day for everyone!
Find the perfect venue
Your venue will set the theme when your guests see it for the first time, so hunt for gothic churches or buildings.
Time it right
Halloween is traditionally an evening event, so a later wedding makes the most sense; fitting everything in after the light of day.
Make the theme clear from the beginning
Achieve this with a themed Save the Date design, with the likes of Ouija boards, skeleton keys, or by using an elegant black card with white-etched spider webs woven across them.
Decide on your attire first
Some couples decide that dressing up as a bride and groom is enough of a ‘costume,’ but you can go more themed if preferred. Ideas include Frankenstein and his Bride, Dracula and his Bride, skeletons or even a famous couple in history or from books or films.
Get the caterer involved
Get the bartender to create a signature drink with dry ice, serve a salad with a blood orange vinaigrette or offer up a mummy-wrapped Beef Wellington for an entrée.
Don’t forget the sweets
A Halloween-themed wedding is a perfect place for a sweet station; offering guests an array of your favourite childhood sweets.
Get creative with the favours
Some ideas include caramel apples, candied or raw pumpkin seeds, or individual hand-painted pumpkins, with mysterious potion bottles contacting essential oils.
