How to host the perfect Halloween wedding

Festive weddings are not everyone's cup of tea. But for anyone getting married during a holiday season, incorporating subtle details into your big day is an innovative way to make your nuptials truly unique and encourage your guests to get into the holiday spirit. As we draw nearer to that favourite of spooky holidays, All Hallows' Eve, we explore fun and functional ways to incorporate festive details into your celebrations to create a truly spectacular Halloween wedding celebration.

Themed wedding invites

Give guests a taste of the holiday spirit with customised invites that feature understated or obvious Halloween wedding details. Black and white engraved acrylic invites lend romance and mystery to your nuptials, while personalising your artwork offers guests a taste of what they're in for.

Alternative wedding attire

If you don't feel comfortable going all-out in full Halloween costume, add embellishments to your dress and makeup for the day. Go dramatic on the makeup front with deep cherry lips or devilish dark eyes, and liven up traditional wedding attire with dark details including black gloves, netted veils and black or red-stoned ornamental jewelry.

Wedding party dress code

Dress your wedding party in sumptuous shades of magenta, burgundy and plum. Accessorise with chokers, capes and more dramatic makeup in the form of crimson nails and claret lips.

Dark humour

Incorporate some dark humour into your wedding vows and reception speeches. You can have a lot of fun with the whole 'til death do us part' mantra and other not-so-subtle references to the fact marriage is supposed to last for the rest of your eternal life.

Decorative details

From plump pumpkins to spooky spiderwebs, be as subtle or as blatant as you want with your Halloween decorations. Get into the spirit with rich red blooms, dark branches, feather and (faux) fur elements scattered among your bouquets and table centrepieces. Textured materials including velvet and lace make great Halloween décor, as well as candles and candelabras throughout your venue to help create an extraordinary Halloween scene.

Moody music

Throw in a couple of Halloween classics like Monster Mash and Witchy Woman to really get your Halloween party started! Create a whole 'Spooky Playlist' and intersperse these songs with your music selection throughout the night.

Creepy cakes

Keep your Halloween theme understated by utilising decadent flavors such as red velvet, spiced pumpkin or apple pie into your wedding desserts. Or really ramp things up with Jack-o-Lanterns, skeleton figurines and black acrylic cake toppers in a range of designs to help set the mood. 

Festive favours

Express your appreciation to guests with personalised favours that reflect the holiday season and your own individual style. From chocolate and candy sweets to ghostly treats, send your guests home with a customised souvenir of your unique holiday nuptials.
