Style Steals: Halloween Wedding Ideas

Weddings on Halloween don’t always mean bright orange pumpkins and grisly decorations; with a little imagination you can style-up your decor with rich contrasts flecked with shimmering golds for a more up-town luxe appeal. From invitations to centrepieces, flowers to edibles, be inspired by these mood boards of style-stealing conventional (and not-so) Halloween wedding ideas.

Orange is such a classic Halloween colour, but too much can be overkill. Incorporate it carefully into your theme through your wedding stationery, stylish floral centrepieces and suspended features – we love the pumpkin spice tassel garland and hanging dried autumnal flowers here. Add some extra ambiance with glowing candlelight or take a classic orange pumpkin and spray it ghostly white for a clever twist on the theme…

None of us here have ever seen a ghost, but based on Casper the Friendly Ghost (yes, we follow the gospel according to Universal Pictures) ghosts really do appear in white. Celebrate this deathly shade with a zombie caketopper, white ghost balloons and skulls embellished with white peonies.

Cream pays homage to those old baggy bones; styled right, it can look wonderfully ethereal. Try suspending some outdoor chandeliers to cast an eerie glow over your venue’s garden or woodland (if it has one), lace a string of pearls around bottles of spirits and serve favours in takeaway boxes laser cut with the message ‘’til death do us part‘.

Add a sprinkling of black magic with some moody shades of black. Morticia would love these lace-covered champagne flutes and contrasting black and white popppy bouquet. A blackboard wedding invitation and seating plans presented on tombstones go perfectly, whilst a table laid with a soft black silk tablecloth, gold baroque cutlery, black candelabras with gold candles, spray-gold pumpkins and miniature centrepieces of gerbras or roses provide an indulgent layer of luxury.

And don’t forget a table display covered with fun props and favours. Sweets in broomstick bags, bottled pumpkin juice, masquerade masks and test-tube shots of blood – this is where you can really go to town!
