Halloween weddings are an amazing time to incorporate more gothic elements into your wedding. And you don’t have to be getting married ON Halloween to make it happen. Any wedding from, I would say, the middle of the month until the 31st would be a great time to incorporate some elegantly spooky treats.
The problem with most Halloween decor, however, is that it tends to look childlike or too commercial if it’s not done right. Stay away from anything plastic (or bright, bright orange) when looking for Halloween decor, and instead use colors like gold, orange, white, and black as a subtle inspiration for some ghouly decor. That’s not to say that you can’t show off a few skulls or skeletons at your Halloween wedding! The trick is to not overdue them, and when displaying any of these classic Halloween items, to add something to them (like the jeweled skeleton) to make them fit in at a dressier event like a wedding.
I went searching for my favorite Halloween wedding ideas in the gallery, above. I think they all strike the perfect balance between fun and elegant, and are still pretty! Just remember…if there’s anything you don’t want to leave out at a Halloween wedding it’s CANDLES. Lots and lots of candles. It wouldn’t be a spooky celebration without them. 🙂
