The key to a Halloween wedding is designing an atmosphere of elegance and sophistication, which both celebrates the spirit of the holiday and retains the feeling of a wedding. Here are some ideas to help you prepare Halloween wedding.
Halloween is a perennially popular date for non-traditional brides and grooms. If you love drama, dark colors, and have a love of all things spooky, this just might be the perfect day to host your marriage celebration! Most weddings on that day will always in black color. Orange or red are the most popular colors to pair with black. You can choose a warm orange or a deep red rather than the ultra-bright versions of the hues to make the color palette more sophisticated.
Gothic wedding dress would be cream and accented with black lace, which may be a great choice. For the bridesmaids, dresses in either black or other dark colors. For the groom and the rest of the gentlemen, black suits with a Victorian or Gothic flair will be just right.
Carved pumpkins are a must for a Halloween wedding. You can opt for the traditional jack o’lanterns with scary faces, or something else, such as your initials, black cats, bats, or even decorative motifs like scrolls or fleurs-de-lis. To create an atmosphere with somewhat dim lighting and hundreds of glowing candles, reception will take place after dark. Custom colorwash lighting in a deep, mysterious purple would be a very cool effect.
Flowers are a big part of any wedding, and for a Halloween wedding, many gorgeous blossoms are available in shades of orange and red. Tie bouquets with black velvet ribbon and place the centerpieces into ornate opaque black vases. Alternatively, the flowers can be arranged in hollowed out pumpkins and gourds for a less formal style. Add some branches, drop some jet black and red crystals from them, and you will have a fabulously elegant Halloween wedding!
