If you are looking to get married during the autumn season, or you just really like the autumnal style, why not choose to have a Halloween wedding? There are so many styles to choose from!
Halloween can be spooky or more artistic, with the use of striking colours, decorations and flowers to enhance the look.
Halloween isn’t a very common wedding theme, which means that if you choose it, your wedding is bound to be unique and remembered by all of your guests for many years to come!
Why not pick a specific Halloween theme? You could let your guests dress up for the occasion, you could choose a film for inspiration or alternatively you could add a more subtle Halloween style to the wedding with your decorations and choice of dress.
When regarding flowers for the occasion, there is nothing better than dark red roses and gypsophila!
Why not match your dress for the occasion? Instead of keeping to tradition by using a white dress, why not opt for a black or dark purple wedding dress to go with the theme? There are so many to choose from!
In addition to this, the bride could also choose to pair a unique flower bouquet with the dress!
Take a look at this beautiful black unique wedding dress from Sweet Caroline Styles with floral lace sleeves.
For Halloween, a groom’s best choice, if it is not a costume themed wedding, is to opt for a black suit with a dark tie, possibly matching the bride’s wedding dress if this is possible.
The groom could also match the bride by wearing a small flower brooch with flowers from the bride’s bouquet.
This particular groom is wearing a stylish suit from The Groomsmen Suit.
When planning a Halloween or spooky wedding, it is important to keep the theme running throughout the planning of the event, this goes from the invitations, the first point of contact for the guests all the way to the reception.
