50 Simple And Elegant Halloween Wedding Decoration Ideas

Posted on

There are some dates that may appeal to one bride and not another. Maybe you have always dreamed of a New Year’s Eve Wedding. Perhaps you can only imagine saying your vows on the third Saturday in June. For some couples, that perfect date is Halloween. It presents all sorts of great ideas for your wedding, from the elegant to the silly and fun.

Halloween is a pretty easy theme to use for your wedding because it has such strong pre-existing associations. It is also a holiday that is enjoyed by both kids and adults (as well as adults who feel like kids inside!). If you are having a Halloween wedding, it helps not to take yourself too seriously, but that does not mean that the event cannot be arranged to be elegant and sophisticated.

Décor is really the place to start for a Halloween wedding. Forget crepe paper streamers and bobbing for apples, though, as they are not grown-up enough for a wedding. The cornerstone of your Halloween wedding decorations will most likely be jack-o’-lanterns. They can be carved to reflect your personal taste – traditional scary faces, fall scenes, or even monogrammed. If you know someone who is a very talented pumpkin carver, it would be awesome to have jack-o’-lanterns carved to look like the bride and groom.

Of course, candy is everyone’s favorite thing about Halloween. Naturally, you will want sweets to play a central role in a Halloween reception. Set up a table dedicated to candy and other seasonal confections like caramel apples, fudge, and popcorn balls. Present them in an elegant way, such as tall glass cylinders filled with colorful candies, and beautiful trays for the apples.

Having a Halloween wedding does not mean that your entire wedding must be done in orange and black. In fact, it would be more sophisticated to introduce some of the other autumn colors, like rich golds and deep reds. The rich red tones would work very well for your bridesmaid dresses for a Halloween wedding. Compliment them with bridesmaid jewelry sets made from sparkling burgundy Swarovksi crystals. Or, you could dress your attendants in an orangy-gold silk dupioni, accented with warm earth toned pearls in the bridesmaid jewelry sets. Just avoid anything in bright safety orange if you want your bridesmaids to speak to you after the wedding!
