Trick or Treat: Is a Halloween Wedding for You?

Posted on

Have you considered having your wedding on Halloween? Does having Halloween nuptials mean you have to dress up? Well, unless you are looking to have a mid-week Halloween wedding, the next time this ghoulish holiday falls on a Saturday is 2020. So for those of you planning ahead, here are some tips for those brides who don’t necessarily want to dress up as anything other than a bride on your wedding day.

Incorporate Orange and BlackOrange and black Collage

White linen or orange and black accents, black linen with orange accents, you could even do orange linen with black and white accents if you wanted to rent specialty linen…while orange and black are traditionally considered Halloween colors, they are both pretty standard fall colors too. And all combinations look stunning in the ballroom.


Not that you need to have a jack-o-lantern carving station (kids and sharp cutting tools don’t mix with weddings too well), but pumpkins are the epitome of fall décor. Whether you have them as your centerpieces, on your cake, or just part of your ceremony décor, pumpkins are very versatile when it comes to Halloween/Fall décor.

Don’t forget the candy!

The best part of Halloween is undoubtedly the candy aspect. Whether or not you decide to invite young kids to your wedding is up to you, but young and old alike will enjoy having the trick-or-treat experience  at a fabulous candy table without having to ring bells or go door-to-door.

Having a Halloween wedding lends itself to having a lot of creative license. You can tie in the holiday in a big or subtle way, or you can just ignore it and act like it’s any other day of the year. Whatever you decide to do, have fun and remember all that really matters is at the end of the day, you will end up married to your best friend and be at the beginning of a new chapter of your lives!
