October’s here, and what better way to add some elements of Halloween than to your wedding? Our guide comes with many methods for including Halloween in your wedding, y’all. I think many will appreciate what’s in store to help you get creative and have fun. So as you look through our fun guide on the many methods for including Halloween in your wedding, make sure to take note; there’s plenty of information I want y’all to know.
Have a Candle Lit Ceremony
If you want the ceremony to have an ominous mystery behind it, consider adding some candlelight. To me, the flames emit an intense glow and can set the tone of romance and suspense. If you want my advice on how to bring the idea into the reception, place candelabras around the room.
Candelabras are the fancy yet hauntingly beautiful candles that make big ballrooms feel older, mysterious, and terrifying in a fun way. For a way to save, consider renting candles for the ceremony and reception.
Serve Candy Charcuterie Boards
Don’t want to serve ordinary desserts? Then let’s spice things up, y’all. Go on; you have my permission. All year, I’m anticipating Halloween to roll around the corner. Halloween’s a fun holiday and a perfect time to plan out a dessert and candy charcuterie style board to help elevate your guest’s taste buds and excitement.
In my opinion, the best additions to a dessert and candy charcuterie board are anything from sour candies to sweet chocolate that melts in your mouth. Now, don’t get me started on the other sugary treats that await your guests. One small tip: provide some goodie bags to guests to take some candy and desserts home.
Go for a Hauntingly Beautiful Color Palette
Don’t settle for orange and white; they’re too basic, y’all. Instead of being basic, I want you to opt for a more hauntingly beautiful color palette, like burnt orange with a deep purple or a silver and black combo for the main color scheme. Whatever the choice is, incorporate it into the decorations for centerpieces, bouquets, drinkware, and much more.
Use Velvet Tablecloths
It’s time to get a little fancy, y’all. Unless you have an area for children to eat at during the reception, ditch the crepe paper; go out a little by getting velvet tablecloths. Using velvet tablecloths makes the reception area feel haunted and even adds an elegant touch to your wedding day. I am not making this up, y’all.
As you prepare for your wedding, don’t be afraid to add your personal spin when integrating Halloween into your theme, y’all. I love Halloween as much as the next person, and I hope this blog has inspired you for your most memorable, haunting Halloween wedding.
