Are you as in love with the idea of having a Halloween wedding as much as I am? You've stopped by the right place. There are thousands upon thousands of ideas out there on how to decorate for a perfectly spooky affair, I know, but I wanted to compile a few of my favorites here. Care to take a peek?
1) Bobbing For Apples
Bobbing for apples has always been a game associated with fall and Halloween. Why not incorporate it into your wedding to dress up a bare corner? The blacker the water, the better. Cut out the tops of the apples and stick some battery-operated candles in there to make them glow!
2) Trick or Treat Bar
A sweet bar with a little Halloween spin, this table decked with candy is sure to be a (trick or) treat!
3) Forest Tree Centerpieces
Nothing like the idea of a dark, dangerous woods to freak your guests out just enough to keep them intrigued. This is a great option for weddings wanting only the suggestion of a darker Halloween theme.
4) Bat Chandelier
The phrase "Til Death Do Us Part" is a huge trend for Halloween weddings! (Maybe don't overdo it?) This picture, however, is tasteful with its simple nod to its origin--and come on, check out those painted wine bottles. Yes please? Yes PLEASE!
5) Red as a Theme Color
Want to get a little gory with your wedding decor? Red will go a LONG way. Just look at this picture. What do you see? Blood stained napkins. That's what you see.
6) Skeleton Hand Napkin-Rings
Need a hand with your napkins? Here is your literal answer.
7) Coffin Ring Box
Nothing says "Til Death Do Us Part" like a ring carried around in a coffin.
8) Dark Bouquets
Remember that bit about the blood? It applies here.
9) Skull Wedding Cake
If I'm honest, this cake is much more cute than it is frightening. It definitely suggests class, but with a whimsical edge. Your guests are sure to adore it in all of it's spook-tacular glory.
10) Black, White and Red Wedding Cake
With Halloween weddings, it's important not to overdo it. Not everything has to be terrifying! A beautiful wedding cake with some darker colors is a good way to keep things balanced while cohesive.
11) A Non-White Wedding Dress
Just a word--a Halloween wedding DOESN'T mean your dress must also be Halloween themed. At the end of the day, it's still a wedding, and you don't want to forfeit that wedding gown experience if you feel the alternative is too costume-y. You do you, boo. (See what I did there?)
...That being said--THIS. DRESS.
12) Colored Smoke Bombs
From your engagement pictures to your reception photo booth, incorporating your wedding colors (especially if they're Halloween-related) into some smoke bomb fun is a great way to add some eerie mystery to the occasion.
13) Pumpkin Drink Bowl
These are great for the drink table or even as table centerpieces. Get creative! Pumpkins are cheap and simple decorations that can go a really long way.
14) Spiderweb Invitations
Don't keep the Halloween fun limited to just October. Send out those bone-shivering invites any time of the year! Your guests will love it.
15) Skull and Poison Themed Centerpieces
Get fun and edgy with those centerpieces. Your guests will be staring at them all throughout the meal, so keep the festive mood going!
16) Halloween-Themed Tableware
Yeah, yeah, I know what I said about how trendy and unoriginal the phrase is, but come on. It's gonna get incorporated in there somehow! If your guests are being served a sit down meal, they won't notice this detail until their plates are empty!
