Now borrowing ideas from Halloween need not to be childish or goulish. Using a pale orange and rich black for your color scheme adds the holiday theme without looking tacky. Other ideas would be:
|Pumpkin at Sweet Seasons Farm Wedding|
An arrangement of Pumpkins and gourds make a colorful setting at a wedding.
|Pumpkin wedding centerpiece|
Another example of how using a Pumpkin added and elegant touch to a Country "Halloween" Wedding
Use painted gourds for Vases
Leaves and Fall Flowers
I know you're saying - I get all that about the decor - but how else can I make it special?
How about a Smores Bar - where guests can make their own Smores?
Instead of the usual 'favors' - set up a candy bar - with candy corn, M&Ms, mini candy bars, even bubble gum. Whatever candies you like ( you can't go wrong here! ) Have little "Treat Bags" the guests can fill.
Give Candy Carmel Apples for favors - they have some nice 'gourmet' varieties your guests will love!
Now - of Course - The Music
In addition to the "usual" Wedding faire - have your DJ spin some more "spooky" tunes:
- Thriller - Michael Jackson
- Spooky - The Zombies
- Werewolf of London -Warren Zevon
- Monster - Lady Gaga
- Monster Mash - Bobby Pickett
- Timewarp - Rocky Horror Picture Show ( any song from this Classic!)
- Season of the Witch - Donovan
- Superstition - Stevie Wonder
- Jump In The Line - Harry Belefonte ( From BeetleJuice ( Shake Senora) )
- I Put a Spell on You - Screaming Jay Hawkins
Having the DJ all in Black would add to the fun - as would a black light or Hazer. You could even make it a costume party - With you - of course being the Bride and Groom!
The trick is - make the day uniquely yours - after all - it is YOUR wedding - Celebrate!
