Till Death Do Us Part
We’ve all heard the phrase “till death do us part” before, and there’s really no better way to combine everlasting romance with Halloween. Incorporate this phrase on your wedding invitations or in an arch behind the altar. This adds to the Halloween spirit and fits with the wedding theme as you and your husband or wife prepare to spend the rest of your lives together until death do you part!
If you’re planning a spooky wedding, you have to commit. Don’t choose a neutral color scheme with just a few Halloween accents; go all out with a Halloween color scheme! Black, gray, purple, orange, and white are spooky wedding colors most commonly used. Pick your colors and stick with them for your table settings, bridesmaid dresses, groomsmen ties, centerpieces, and floral arrangements. Don’t skimp out on the dark colors and themes in order for guests to feel like the reception and ceremony are in a haunted mansion!
Pumpkins are great decorative pieces that can be used both inside and out. Larger pumpkins can line the aisle, or small pumpkins can be filled with flowers to create gorgeous centerpieces! Pumpkin décor can become a cheap and easy DIY project for you and your bride squad to take on if you’re looking to cut costs! Everyone loves carving and painting pumpkins in the fall, so why not put them to good use? Carve each table number onto the pumpkin as a table centerpiece or clip on a name tag for each guest to find their table. The pumpkin decor ideas are endless, so be sure to include plenty of them throughout your special day!
Wear a Not-So-White Dress
White has always been the traditional color for brides to wear. White was used to symbolize purity on the wedding day. However, don’t feel like you have to conform to outdated traditions. After all, it’s not traditional to have a spooky-themed wedding, anyway! Try on a black or gray dress before you settle for white. A unique dress will really amp up the Halloween factor during the ceremony and in your wedding photos. Since non-traditional wedding dresses are becoming more common, there are plenty of styles to choose from!
Halloween Wedding Ceremony & Venue Ideas
For the ultimate Halloween wedding ceremony, choose a venue that is dark and enchanting! Whether that is an old church, mansion, or antique and historic hotel. the venue and ceremony must fit the vibe! For decorating the wedding ceremony, line up some pumpkins or gourds down along the aisle. Adding in some orange and black lanterns to hang up and fit with the Halloween theme. Encourage your guests to wear costumes since after all it is Halloween night! This will make the wedding so unique and memorable for not only the bride or groom, but for the guests as well! Add in a photo booth with masks, signs, and other spooky décor for a fun activity for guests to partake in at the reception. Consider playing spooky songs or classic Halloween hits like “Monster Mash” periodically throughout your DJ’s other music. This will help keep guests in the spirit and have your ceremony and venue be unforgettable!
