Getting married on Halloween? This is a great opportunity to have some fun! We thought we would offer some fun ideas you, your bridal party and guests could get a little spooky at the wedding.
Tell Your Guests to Wear Costumes: Only if they want to! But tell your guests they are welcome to wear costumes at your wedding. If the adults at your wedding aren't, the kids definitely should!
Do a Candy Table: Obviously. This is especially fun if you are having kids at your wedding who are missing out on trick-or-treating fun because of your wedding. Make the kids party favor big bags of candy.
Spooky Desserts and Cocktails: A spooky martini with a finger coming out of it? Or cake balls that look like spiders? The choices are endless with what you can do for a Halloween wedding.
Play Halloween Music: We all know Michael Jackson's "Thriller" needs to be part of the repertoire, but having howling and growling sounds throughout the wedding reception is fun too.
Get Married at Dusk: Just as it is about to get dark, say "I Do."
Cocktail Hour Spookiness: Take guests on a haunted hayride or have scary characters walking around pouring and serving drinks and appetizers. Have a bobbing for apples station where your guests get the chance to be kids again.
Bridal Party Fun: When it comes to taking pictures, have some fun with it. Have each of your bridesmaids and groomsmen wear mask or part of a Halloween costume with their dress and tuxedo. While we are sure you have your bridesmaid dresses picked by now, we want to suggest some options - Social Bridesmaids Style 8141 in dahlia or Dessy Collection Style 2933 in black.
