Getting married during the festive season is a great idea, that too if it is Halloween. It is all about decorating your wedding ceremony and reception venue with pumpkins, vines, cobwebs, inky hues and other spooky touches. Just take a look how you can do it right.
Send creative wedding invitations related to Halloween. If you want to introduce a themed celebration right from the start, design cards which look like Tarot cards or include black colour with grunge effects and spooky drawings.
When it comes to your wedding dress, remember to choose deep colours with antique embellishments. As it might be difficult to get specifically Halloween-themed bridal gowns, simple antique accessories can turn them to Halloween-worthy in no time. Black birdcage wedding veil and short gloves can be great with designer wedding gowns.
Halloween makeover can be made easier with a few dramatic ideas like, darker smoky eyes or a deep plum or red lipstick. Avoid highlighting the entire face with a total makeover.
Utilise the advantage of Halloween and add something creepy to your wedding vows. It can be something like: until death do us part. This can make the Halloween fun more appropriate. Have the ring bearer carry the bands in a tiny coffin or tombstone.
Use deep black linens in heavy velvet to accent a few spaces in your venue. Cover the tables in spindly black lace. Suave cocktail bar or a decked-out dessert table can be enough to introduce Halloween theme into your wedding.
Photo booths are a must for wedding receptions. Thus, add a spooky photo frame in the background. Never forget to add customised photo frames to bring elegance in the theme. Set up worn out furniture and fake spider webs.
For the bouquets, think blood-red calla lilies, dark roses with black feathers and then add greeny branches and tons of candle votives on the tables. If you have space, hang antique chandeliers at the dance floor garnished with fake cobwebs.
Apples are a seasonal staple and can be perfect to play the concept of poison apple. You can also opt for a rum apple cider, or green apple martinis garnished with fresh slices. If you have a plan to arrange for a bar in the event, tell your bartender to bring a batch of party punch with dry ice in it. The smoky effect can be downright enchanting.
So spice up your sinister wedding event in this Halloween with these freaky ideas.
