The leaves are falling, there’s an exciting chill in the breeze, and you can taste the pumpkin spice in the air. That only means one thing – Halloween is coming! But this Halloween season is unlike ever before because it’s the one where you’ll wed the love of your life.
We created our Halloween wedding collection to lend romance and vibrance to intimate autumn-inspired weddings like yours. Here’s a taste of what to expect when you invite us on your Halloween-themed wedding journey!
Your Halloween Wedding Color Palette
If you want to incorporate the magic of Halloween into your wedding, it all starts with your color palette. So, for our premier Halloween Wedding collection, we took inspiration from the seasonal palette of autumn leaves and pumpkin patches.
Deep orange roses evoke the warmth and vibrance of fresh pumpkins, while dusky black roses remind us of mysterious romance. We wanted to create a vibrant palette that was both tranquil and intense. In the end, we created one of our favorite seasonal collections yet, designed to treat couples planning autumnal, holiday, or alternative-themed weddings.
Your Stylish Halloween wedding ceremony
Picture this: It’s a dusky October afternoon at an old Victorian Manor. Some people think the place is haunted, but you think it’s hauntingly beautiful. You have the space all to yourselves for your ceremony and reception, and you’ve transformed it into an enchanted wonderland with your Halloween wedding decorations.
A Witchy Welcome Sign
First impressions are everything. So when your guests first enter through the manor doors, a wooden sign resplendent with your spooky Orange & Black color palette will greet them. The flowing leaves will draw your guests’ eyes toward the message your sign bears: Welcome to Our Beginning.
Halloween Wedding Aisle Decor
You’ve decided to stage your wedding ceremony in the manor’s spacious and moody parlor, creating a makeshift aisle lined by elegant black chairs. On the chairs lining the outside of the aisle, you place small floral decorations featuring a trio of orange, black, and amber blossoms.
Along the aisle, Halloween wedding decorations line the way for you, like flickering candles, carved pumpkins, and bountiful aisle flowers. It’s a spellbinding sight that’s equal parts eerie and intimate.
A Heart-Stopping Halloween Wedding Arch
Waiting for you at the end of the aisle stands your Halloween wedding arch. Billows of Orange & Black fabric waterfall down to the floor, while abundant boughs of orange, black, and amber roses frame the scene. It’s like a backdrop for an autumnal greeting card, and it’s beckoning for you like a figure from the mist.
Your Halloween Bridal Flowers
With the stage set, it’s time to begin your Halloween wedding ceremony in earnest. Soft piano music pierces the air like a phantom music box, letting your guests know that the ceremony is about to begin.
Your bridesmaids make their way down the aisle ahead of you, holding bridesmaid bouquets like a trick-or-treater’s candy basket. The deep orange Austin roses and Pompon mums look sweet in contrast with their midnight black dresses.
As a special gift for your maid of honor, you gift her a shoulder corsage bursting with burnt orange peonies and amber gardenias. It helps set her apart from your other bridesmaids and lets her know how much she means to you during this ethereal event.
For other female guests, like your mom or soon-to-be sister-in-law, you gift wrist corsages of the same color palette as a token to show your support. They’ll make fantastic souvenirs to take home later and will last forever — unlike those bowls of Halloween candy at your reception.
A Dramatic bridal bouquet
Finally, it’s time for you to step from the shadows and make your grand appearance. You feel bewitching in an elegant lace gown, carrying your Halloween bridal bouquet overflowing with inky black roses and miniature orange pumpkins that look magical in the jack-o-lantern light. You feel like you’ve stepped out of the pages of a vintage photo album in the best possible way.
A Bewitching boutonniere
Standing beside the wedding arch, your partner waits for you. They’re wearing an understated boutonniere matching the delicate black roses in your bouquet. This subtle touch helps bring a dash of Halloween charm to their look without being too over-the-top.
You and your partner whisper vows into each other’s ears, promising till death do you part in a beautiful moment that belongs just to the two of you. It’s an intimate and breathtaking Halloween themed wedding ceremony.
Your Halloween Wedding Reception
During the evening, as the full moon rises, you move to the dining room, which looks hauntingly beautiful with the same sultry pumpkin orange and black color palette. Your vibrant Halloween wedding decorations alight the space with dark elegance.
Your Halloween Guest Tables
Your guests dine at vintage wooden tables that feel warm and inviting thanks to dripping wax candles and rustic orange & black centerpieces. The rustic burlap table runners remind you of afternoon trips to the pumpkin patch — and the decorative pumpkins do, too. It’s a cozy yet festive spread that encourages conversation among your guests.
Your Spellbinding Sweetheart Table
Across the room, you and your partner sit beneath a bountiful floral chandelier that overflows with lush flowers and dry autumn leaves. A floral garland lies along the table’s front, while even more decorative pumpkins sit at the table’s base. It feels like a cozy autumnal wonderland made just for the two of you. The sights and sounds around you make your pumpkin pie taste even sweeter.
