If you are planning your wedding for late October, consider having a Halloween themed event. Imagine glowing candles, carved jack-o-lanterns, dried cornstalks and flowers on a moonlit night. Most people can easily turn a Halloween party into a wedding; however, consider adding some polish to this special night. Here are some suggestions that incorporate elegance with pure holiday fun.
Choosing Wedding Colors:
The best colors for a Halloween themed wedding are orange and black. You can also include rich browns, creams, copper, gold and various shades of yellow.
Set the tone for your wedding with your save the date cards and themed wedding invitations. For the Halloween look, why not an orange and black invitation with stamped images or cut out of pumpkins, ghosts and bats on the border? Or an invitation shaped like a pumpkin or cornucopia? For a more elegant look, select an ivory or cern invitation with brown or gold ink. Tie a bow of black or orange chiffon, or just plain raffia, and attach it to the top of the invitation. Or if you are going for the layered invitation look, tie the layers together with a chiffon or raffia ribbon.
Halloween Wedding Attire:
If you want your guests to arrive in Halloween costumes, be sure to say so. Enclose a small card with your invitation letting your guests know that Halloween costumes are required for your wedding and give them some Halloween costume ideas or guidelines to follow so things don’t get out of hand. The last thing you want is to have someone show up in a bloody, gory outfit that will scare or offend someone else. For the bndal party, finding children’s or toddler Halloween costumes is easy enough, but to find some unique adult Halloween costumes, you may need to visit a local costume shop.
