It’s nearly here… the scariest day of the year, Halloween! With a chill in the air, autumnal touches and of course, the spook and scare factor – it’s a fun way to start married life. Here’s 10 reasons why we love the idea of getting hitched at Halloween. However – if you don’t want to share your big day with zombies, ghosts and pumpkins, then you could pick some of these ideas for an autumnal wedding.
Mysterious Invites – The Save the Date is a key component in a Halloween wedding! It sets the scene, leaving behind just the right about of mystery.
Pumpkin Potential – A fantastic way to light up your reception, whilst creating a spooky Halloween atmosphere. Carving your wedding date or initials into the pumpkins or using them as a guest book adds a personal touch to the pumpkin decor.
Ominous Favours – From love potions to Trick or Treat goody bags, your guests will be left wondering whether those favours are safe to take home…
Defying Mother Nature – Black wedding flowers may seem slightly morbid on a normal day, but on Halloween they become the norm! Black flowers may not be everyone’s choice but they are a striking way to indulge in the theme.
Spider Cocktails – The one day of the year when spiders are allowed in a girl’s life. Make the most of it and add spider surprises to the drinks and tables.
Spooky Spoons – The perfect finishing touch to your wedding breakfast tables. Or, perhaps a wedding gift for your Halloween gift list.
Stripy Socks – Get your groom and groomsmen to blend in with with these stripy Halloween socks. They’d make a lovely memoir and a great photo opportunity.
A Creepy Cake – If you’re not keen on the traditional pretty wedding cake, then a Halloween cake is a definite winner. Have fun creating a unique and memorable design that your guests will love.
Or, be mysterious with these spooky cupcakes. Adding ominous signs around your wedding reception will create a scary atmosphere that you’re guests will not only find fun, but will never forget.
Fancy Dress – If you love dressing up, then why not do it at your own wedding? Your guests can dress up for your evening reception, creating a relaxed and fun-filled party. And with the bride and groom dressed as Dracula and his bride – your fancy dress party will be complete.
