Wedding Wednesday: Halloween weddings

When you think of Halloween, weddings probably aren’t the first thing to come to mind. However, getting married at the end of October can be the perfect time. Some brides choose to play up the Halloween theme, while others go for a more sophisticated feel.

Brides.com explained how to pull off a chic and sophisticated Halloween wedding. First step is the venue. Finding an eerily classy venue can create the feel you are looking for.  Historic buildings or hotels rumored to be haunted can provide the perfect backdrop for a Halloween wedding. Put a elegant spin on the traditional color scheme and use a color palette of black and burgundy.  At the reception, use matte gold flatware, black wine glasses, a lace runner, and light as many candles as possible. Instead of wearing a dramatic costume, choose an classic dress with vintage lace and long sleeves.  Dress your bridesmaids in deep tones or all black to create a edgy, yet chic look. When it comes to dessert, pick a all-black cake and offer a candy bar full of your guests favorite Halloween sweets!
