Halloween Wedding Themes
Victorian Attire as a Halloween Wedding Tradition
A Halloween wedding is an opportunity to create a very unique ambiance with formal Victorian era dress, fall colors and candles that will highlight some of the elegant aspects of the season.
In timeless Victorian age tradition, vampire tales portray elegant tuxedos, that can be complemented with a top hat, red lined cape and gentleman's cane. For the bride and bridesmaids, long, full elegant, hooped gowns with high collars are the perfect match.
Halloween Wedding Color Themes
The typical Halloween color themes are orange, black, red and yellow colors and are associated with both pumpkins and with the Fall as the leaves change color. Red, orange and yellow roses as well as calla lilies are seasonal flowers that can carry through this color theme.
When choosing a venue; consider that the use of dark colors, such as reds, burgundies and dark woods,were prevalent in the Victorian era. Victorian furnishings, chandeliers and dark wood accents would also add to your Halloween atmosphere.
Halloween Wedding Table Decor
Dark black or red colored table cloths instead of white are a wonderful addition! The tables can be sprinkled with gold, orange and yellow confetti, or rose petals to add pizzazz.
Use colorful autumn candles as name holders. and chunky candles on every table.
The choice of wedding favors for a Halloween wedding should reflect the theme, such as sweets or candles.
