Wedding Wednesday: Five subtle Halloween wedding ideas

pumpkinWith Halloween just over two weeks away, we take a look at some great ways to incorporate pumpkins and Halloween decorations into a wedding.

There are a variety of ways you can bring some Halloween into the wedding décor. Couples can go all out and turn their wedding into more of a haunted house than a traditional church wedding. Or, you can use just a hint of Halloween by using a splash of orange.

Here are a few ideas for a subtle Halloween touch:

  1. Use a carved pumpkin as a centerpiece: Skip the scary faces, though, and try carving out your initials and illuminating the pumpkin. You could also hallow out the pumpkin and put flowers in it.
  2. Halloween music: Try a classy organ piece such as Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor” or a pianist or cellist perform solo during dinner such as Bolcom’s “Graceful Ghost Rag” and Liszt’s “Mephisto till-death-do-us-part-wood-boxWaltz“.
  3. Incorporate an orange and black color scheme. Try an orange tie with a black tux or a pop of orange in an accessory in the bride’s hair or on her dress. At the reception, the guys can change into some fun Halloween ties. A Black Chiffon Headband is another great, classy idea.
  4. Festive nail polish: Sparkly nail polish in black and orange or in fall colors can provide a subtle or a bold Halloween look.
  5. Wooden ring box: Carry the ring in a black wooden box with “Until death do us part” on it.
