If you’re hoping for a unique and magical Halloween wedding next year, then right now is the best time to start brainstorming and planning. It takes about one year to get everything planned, organized, and paid for. Inspiration is the best way to get started. First, look through some Halloween wedding ideas to get an idea of what you want. Then, once you have some things in mind, create a realistic list of wants and needs that fit your schedule, venue, budget, and theme. To help with planning, I’ve created a list of affordable, easy ideas that will get your imagination going. Thankfully, this is 2016, and I can use Pinterest to pin some ideas directly to this post!
Spooky Invites and Save the Dates
Set the tone for the event with eerie fonts on black invitations and unique Save the Date notifications. I found a great place you can download free Halloween fonts for exactly this purpose. I also found a cool idea for Ouija board Save the Dates.
Unique Place Holders
Halloween allows you to get creative with your name-card holders. Personally, I adore these white pumpkin & glitter holders from Shelterness.
Halloween Candy Bar
Candy bars are quite popular at weddings, and they’re only getting more common. This is because the guests LOVE them. They make great snacks during cocktail hours and favors at the end of the night. For a Halloween wedding, you can stock up on the traditional candies people give to Trick-or-Treaters!
Why make a proverbial heart on your wedding cake when you can have an anatomically accurate one? You’ll need an experienced baker for this, but it would be so worth it. Imagine the looks on guests’ faces.
Unconventional Wedding Dress
Since this is an unconventional wedding theme, you’re not limited to the white, cream, or off-white dress colors that a traditional wedding calls for. This is your chance to put yourself in a gorgeous Halloween color. Black makes a great bridesmaid dress color for Halloween weddings, especially when the bride is in purple or red.
