Planning a Halloween wedding
While some people prefer to enjoy a formal wedding, others like to make it a bit more fun. For those who enjoy Halloween, this is the opportunity to make your wedding a fun, interesting, and even more memorable event. Here are some tips to help you plan the perfect Halloween wedding.
The first thing to remember about Halloween is the tradition of dressing up in costumes. Since this is a wedding, you could have your bridal party dress up as characters from the famous animated film, the Corpse Bride, for example.
Another wonderful idea is to add dry ice to your buffet table. Make sure that it’s not within reach. You don’t want your guests touching the dry ice but you do want to create that spooky, smokey effect.
Decor will have a significant role to play. You will need to incorporate colours like orange, black, and red. Keep these colours in mind when choosing your wedding flowers, linens, and other decorative items. Pumpkins can be used as flower vases for your centrepieces. You can add candy favours to each place setting for your guests to take home.
You can include a different form of entertainment like a magician, tarot card reader, or mystical oracle if you want even more entertainment other than the usual dinner and dancing. When it comes to your menu, ask your caterer about giving regular foods a spooky appearance. You can even do this with your wedding cake! For example, you could have them create a cake in the shape of a haunted house or another scary scene.
Finally, don’t forget about the lighting aspect. Candles are extremely effective and they can be paired with fresh flowers. If you are concerned about the use of open flames, you can always use battery-powered candles instead.
