Wedding Wednesday: Spooktacular Soiree!

Have you ever considered having a Halloween wedding?  I’m so inspired by the dark mystery of this holiday, and would love to turn someone’s wedding reception into a Spooktacular Soiree! I’m not talking cheesy decorations and masks of former presidents.  I’m thinking mysterious, black and white, high-fashion, a little goth and all around sexy glamour!!

It takes a special couple to pull off such a specific theme, and it’s important to incorporate the chosen theme into all the details.  However, it’s pivotal to remember that it is still a wedding, and the bride and groom should be the main focus.

Here are some of my favorite Halloween wedding ideas:

I’m completely obsessed with that black laced mermaid gown with the orange lace shoes. Gorgeous!!

Here are a few more ideas I couldn’t find pictures for:

  • Hang long vertical twinkle lights entwined with “cob webs” from the ceiling
  • Couples favorite signature drinks renamed something like “Witches Brew” or “Vampire Blood”
  • Caramel apples, AKA “Poisoned Apples” used as place card holders (just attach the card to apple’s stick with clear tape or Zots)
  • Creepy food names like Eyeball Salad – green salad with radishes stuffed with olives, Leg O’Man – Smoked Pork Roast, or Human Ribs – Smoked Beef Ribs. Be careful not to gross-out guests!
  • Ask guests to wear masquerade masks or certain costumes or have black, white and orange dress code
  • “Trick or Treat” bags with a candy bar
  • Halloween song-list: Thriller, Monster Mash, Time Warp, and creepy organ music through dinner
  • Horse drawn carriage for bride and groom with black horses
  • Photobooth for guests with costume wigs, glasses, masks, etc. and/or set to look like an electric chair
  • Hang antique looking photos that change to look like ghosts – found at most stores carrying Halloween decorations
  • Antique furniture or mirrors hung around the room
  • Orange and black lights to give the room a great glow

There are so many things that can be donw with this particular theme – I could go on and on! If you’re daring enough to throw a Spooktacular Soiree Wedding, just remember to have FUN and incorporate all the things you and your groom love about Halloween!

What are some of your ideas?
