Halloween Weddings

You can’t go wrong with a Fall wedding. The colors are gorgeous!
While I am a huge fan of Halloween, I do feel it’s necessary to say that couples who plan on having a Halloween themed wedding occasionally go a bit over the top. Now, I’m probably one of the most dramatic ladies you’ll ever meet….but I know a thing or two about when to refrain from excessive decor that will only end up looking tacky.
I feel like there are some unwritten rules when planning a themed wedding. Let’s view some Halloween wedding catastrophes:

Look….I understand you love Halloween…but velvet is not very flattering on anyone and your husband to be looks far too much like The Undertaker in that get up.

There are no words….I….just….nope.

WHY?!?!?!! Why on earth would you settle on a Camouflage themed wedding?!?! There’s no reason for this monstrosity of a look.

Okay. Okay. I’ll stop. We’ve all seem some terrible things at weddings. I mean….take the 80’s for an example. Yikes!
Sometimes, the idea of creating accent pieces becomes overwhelming. This is when you need to slow down and think about the look you’re really going for and how you’re going to feel when you look back at your photos in 20 years from now. As silly and as goofy as you both might be, it’s probably better to make sure that the theme is taking the back seat to the overall meaning of the day. You can still remain dramatic in your own ways. Believe me. Traditional is not my cup of tea. If you want your wedding to end up gorgeous, you need pull back the reigns on the dramatic touches. It’s going to be difficult, but you’re going to be much happier with the ending results. Trust me.

Now let’s move on to some prettier topis:

You can still have that Halloween/ Gothic feel without going overboard. There are still ways of keeping it classy. These pics are a fine example.

Your love for Zombies need not go unnoticed with these terribly cute cake toppers.

While I would normally love a dash of fall colored flowers, these jewel toned flowers look gorgeous against the black table cloth. The fabulous branches are dramatic without being gaudy.

    Or perhaps a masquerade ball… like dressing up in a costume but not at all really and a mask is way easier to deal with than a horse costume or something!! Love the branches on that last photo too! You have such good taste!
