Ideas for Your Halloween-Themed Wedding

Candy, costumes, and pumpkins--oh my! Who says Halloween is just for trick-or-treating? If you're as into the holiday as I am, consider throwing an extravagant Halloween-themed wedding for an evening of ghostly adult fun! Think classic fall wedding decorations, black or pink bridesmaid dresses, and the obvious must-have: candy. If you're looking for some spooky inspiration, look no further! I have some fun and simple ways to elegantly incorporate the holiday into your big day.


Simple Halloween-themed wedding ideas.

You might be picturing an event with skeleton's hanging from walls, green punch with floating fingers, and people dressed in their best 80's costumes. As fun as all those things are, they might be better suited for next year's Halloween party, rather than your actual big day. That being said, here are some ideas that will perfectly tie in your theme, while also keeping the elegance of a wedding.

Classic fall wedding decorations.

Big and small, pumpkins are one of the easiest (and cheapest!) ways to add in fall wedding decorations. Whether they're carved or painted to coordinate with your colors, they make great accents for aisles, tables, or even as escort cards for your guests.

Lighting is key for a Halloween-themed wedding, so lanterns and candles are perfect for setting a spooky ambience. Besides that, keep the lighting low and allow the flames to really be the main source of light.

Add lanterns and candles for an eerie look at your Halloween-themed wedding.

Victorian-inspired décor creates a vibe that's eerie, yet stunning! Whether you go to the grand scale of renting vintage furniture pieces, or a simpler route of antique frames and candelabras, the look will definitely be eye-catching.

A tasty way to get in the Halloween spirit is by adding a delicious candy bar for your guests to enjoy! Add treats based on color or just select your personal favorites and allow people to take a small bag home as a favor!

Pink bridesmaid dresses for a festive fall look.

Outfit your bridal party in colors that perfectly complement your palette. Black is always a classic Halloween choice, but if you're looking for a pop of color and don't want to risk your girls looking like pumpkins, pink bridesmaid dresses are the way to go! Not too dark, not too light, Kennedy Blue's berry color is available in the silky taffeta fabric and is perfectly appropriate for your theme.
