10 Spellbinding Halloween Wedding Ideas
It’s official, ghouls and girls. Halloween is upon us! With autumn leaves floating in the breeze and pumpkin spice abound, this isn’t just a season of scares and tricks. It’s also one of magic and treats. What better time to wed the love of your life?
To help you celebrate your undying love, we’ve put together 10 fun Halloween wedding ideas for a heart-stopping ceremony and reception. Use them to transform your venue, wow your guests, and create unforgettable moments with your partner.
1. Stun with an Orange & Black Palette
The colors of your flowers, decorations, and clothing will influence your overall theme. And nothing screams “Halloween” more than a classic combo of orange and black.
Moody black helps capture the ambiance of Halloween, while shades of orange remind us of pumpkin fields and gradient autumn forests. Add a splash of burgundy for depth, and you’ve got a recipe for a sultry and sophisticated Halloween wedding color palette.
2. Carry a Bewitching Bridal Bouquet
Let’s put this color palette to work in your most important floral arrangement - your bridal bouquet.
We’re fond of how this 15" freeform bridal bouquet captures mysterious romance through rich black roses and orange accents. The burgundy and amber roses help blend the orange and black tones together, while accents like rich burnt orange leaves and mini pumpkins bring autumnal romance to the mix. It’s a spellbinding focal point to highlight your trip down the aisle.
3. Dress Your Bridesmaids in Black
For bridesmaids, black dresses can help create moody and Halloween-worthy wedding photos.
To keep the look from feeling too somber, small rounded bridesmaid’s bouquets or corsages can add a splash of vibrance that accentuates the overall look.
4. Or Style a Black Wedding Dress
While white is traditional for wedding dresses, Halloween is a season made for breaking the rules. So, why not make a statement with a bold black wedding dress? This non-traditional choice can help you command attention at your wedding and create memorable moments.
Throw in a DIY orange bouquet with a trailing ribbon accent, and you’ll feel like a good witch gliding down the wedding aisle.
5. Add Mystery to a Suit with Boutonnieres
Don’t forget the groom, either. The groom, groomsmen, or other suit-wearing guests can embrace the Halloween spirit with stylish boutonnieres.
These understated black boutonnieres embrace the rich color palette through black roses and Aglaia leaf accents. It’s a subtle way to enhance a suit with Halloween charm - and super easy to DIY yourself with faux flowers.
6. Adorn the Wedding Aisle
Your trip down the wedding aisle is the heart-stopping moment of your ceremony. You can prime the canvas for this moment by decorating with free-standing floral arrangements.
Rustic orange flowers can bring autumnal ambiance to your chairs or pews. The black roses add a dash of richness without overpowering the look. Add soft flickering candles and pumpkins for accents, and you can easily create a dazzling fall wonderland for your partner and guests.
7. Embrace Jack-o-lanterns
Speaking of pumpkins, carved jack-o-lanterns are a wonderful way to bring playful and dynamic lighting to your decor. The flickering candles bring a magical glow to your ceremony and reception. Not to mention, jack-o-lanterns can make adorable props for sweet and romantic wedding photos and gifts for guests.
8. Style a Hauntingly Romantic Sweetheart Table
After you’ve exchanged your vows and promised “till death do us part,” it’s time to celebrate at your reception.
A pumpkin orange tablecloth and table runner help capture the color palette, while the lush garland and overhead floral chandelier draw the eye towards you and your partner.
Decorating the ceiling can help you bring ambiance to all dimensions at your reception. You’ll feel like you’ve truly stepped into a Halloween wonderland as you dine beneath vibrant roses and autumn leaves.
9. Spookify Your Table Spreads
Beyond your sweetheart table, a DIY floral chandelier can also transform the guest tables at your reception.
Instead of covering the table, a rustic burlap table runner allows the natural woodgrain to stand out and the bountiful floral centerpieces to shine. It’s a picture-perfect autumn feast.
10. Incorporate Moody Candlelight
At your wedding, the smallest details can have a big impact on your overall atmosphere and mood. We can’t understate the impact of candlelight.
The dripping wax candles at this table spread help illuminate the rustic place settings and decorations with a subtle glow. It’s an easy way to dial up the intrigue and mystery. Plus, it makes for some serious Instagram-worthy photos.
