Add a Halloween Flair to your Autumn Wedding

Fall weddings are becoming extremely popular, with the cooler weather, the changing of the leaves it makes for a comfortable, colorful time for any ceremony.  And if you have it close the Halloween - that just adds to the fun!
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.

Another example of how using a Pumpkin added and elegant touch to a Country "Halloween" Wedding

Gourd Vase

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?

Sweet Favors:  
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:
  1. Thriller - Michael Jackson
  2. Spooky - The Zombies
  3. Werewolf of London -Warren Zevon
  4. Monster - Lady Gaga
  5. Monster Mash - Bobby Pickett
  6. Timewarp - Rocky Horror Picture Show ( any song from this Classic!)
  7. Season of the Witch - Donovan
  8. Superstition - Stevie Wonder
  9. Jump In The Line - Harry Belefonte ( From BeetleJuice ( Shake Senora) )
  10. 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!
