If you love deep, moody weddings, there’s no better time of year to host your own. Today we’re showing you 8 ideas for a moody Halloween wedding that will put you in a spooky mood.
Choosing the Venue
The wedding venue for your Halloween wedding will set the stage for your entire night. Choose a venue that is naturally dimly lit so you can fill it with string lights and candles. If you’re wanting your Halloween wedding to be a little spooky, find something that has rustic or industrial accents that fit the style of an old, spooky building.
Add more drama by choosing a venue that accommodates a king’s table style set up – long tables where guests eat together and you can decorate with elaborate centerpieces down the middle of the table. It’s the perfect set up for a moody wedding day.
If you’re hosting your wedding on Halloween, go all out with your decor! Deep burgundy and purple florals will look great in your centerpieces, and a bouquet of black and white anemones looks lovely with the bridesmaids and their gowns.
Line the centers of your tables with greenery and fresh florals along with gold candlestick holders filled with black tapers – they’ll add the perfect amount of spooky to your tablescape.
FIll the space with candlelight – line the aisles and fill the tables and other important areas in your reception with tealights and lanterns for the perfect glow for a Halloween wedding.
Fun Halloween Wedding Activities
Make sure your guests enjoy themselves at your wedding with activities for them to do throughout the night.
Provide them with a fun photobooth set up to take fun photos in. With a skeleton backdrop and some silly signage, your guests will have a ball taking photos at your wedding. Better yet, use your photo booth as a guestbook as well! Instruct each guest to take a photo with a Polaroid camera, sign it and place it in a designated book – it’s the perfect way to see how much fun everyone had!
This moody lighting and decor is perfect for the offbeat bride and groom, and it will be a night they remember forever.
