Theme weddings have always been popular especially during the fall season. This is the season where there are several holidays with so many fabulous colors to create a stunning and unique theme wedding event.
One holiday that tends to tie in all the rich fall colors is Halloween. For this style shoot, Monica Reyes of Events With A Promise brought to light the spirit and ghostly fun elements of Halloween.
The event venue is the setting for your theme event. When selecting your event space keep in mind that this is the backdrop to your theme wedding. The Curtiss Mansion is a beautiful historic venue rich in details that dates back to over a century ago. The mystery of days gone by is the perfect setting for a Halloween theme event.
The floral design was inspired by the bride’s black wedding gown and the linen’s deep tones of purple and green. Christopher Plaza with The Bride Candy chose flowers that gave depth with a mood of elegance to the styling of this Halloween wedding. The color palette of the bridal bouquet was dark purple and reds with greenery and pops of white. The touches of white flowers soften the bouquet while still enhancing the gothic theme. The pampas grass was paired with the greenery to give it an autumn feel.
Paper Product Styling
The paper products was a five-piece invitation suite printed on handmade paper. Incorporating details such as a hand-drawn, preserved forget-me-not flower and a headstone shaped RSVP card, the design helped carry the eerie, romantic feel for the styled nuptials. To provide a ghostly effect, the invitation suite was accompanied by a vellum mailing envelope that had iridescent, mica flakes, and a dual-colored wax seal. The menu card had a blood scarlet color wax seal to break away from the dark color palette.
Fitting perfectly with the Halloween theme the bride wore a black laced long-sleeved ball gown. The lace had floral designs with sequins sprinkled throughout the gown. The groom wore a black tuxedo with a black lapel outlined in white. The perfect touch to add mystery and romance to the wedding attire.
When designing a Halloween theme wedding, always keep in mind that the elements a couple loves and enjoys about Halloween plays a main role in the wedding decor. Focus on what is important to the couple. And don’t be afraid to incorporate new colors, elements, and styles to create a unique and ghostly Halloween Theme Wedding. Happy Trick-or-Treat!
