Halloween is just around the corner, so we thought we’d spoil you with some spooky yet stylish Halloween wedding inspiration. A traditional Autumn colour scheme is warm, rustic and cosy, consisting of an orange, red and brown palette. However, we’re giving the traditional Halloween wedding theme a modern twist, using black details to create a gritty edge. So, if you love the sound of a gothic-meets-gorgeous wedding theme, get reading…
When it comes to your wedding venue, we imagine an abandoned warehouse or empty industrial space to be the perfect setting for your spooky yet stylish Halloween wedding celebration. We’re talking exposed brick walls, dark wooden beams and huge striking windows. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? We’re already feeling those eerie vibes!
However, you can easily transform any space into an envy-inducing Halloween wedding theme, with just a few simple tips and tricks. Create a statement backdrop for your wedding venue, it can be used for your wedding ceremony, as a photo-booth or simply as part of your décor.
You can also add tall black candlesticks in gilded holders throughout your venue for a touch of ambience – place them along empty windowsills, surrounding a fireplace or at the entrance of your venue. Dramatic chandeliers will also help to add a ‘gothic’ feel to your wedding day.
Let’s talk about the all-important bridal look. Black accents and details are one the hottest bridal trends for 2018 and we adore seeing this modern aisle style on the bridal catwalks. If you’re a fashion-forward bride and want to make a statement on your big day, consider rocking a black wedding dress! Not many brides opt for a dress in this colour choice, so it’s certainly a unique look that will turn heads.
Alternatively, you can work in a few subtle black accents into your wedding day outfit. For instance, a pair of black heels will look oh-so-gorgeous peeking out from under your gown. We love brides who rock gorgeous black leather jackets on their wedding day. You could even get a minimalist black manicure – undeniably chic.
If you are on the hunt for show-stopping wedding hair accessories, look no further than Naturae Design. There are so many breathtaking designs to choose from, all with an ethereal, elegant feel that will make you fall in love all over again.
When it comes to your bridal make-up, we recommend opting for dramatic shades of deep purple, luxe red and smoky eyes. While we would suggest staying away from Halloween make-up for your wedding day, there’s no harm in taking inspiration from the season. Bold, statement lips will look elegant and sexy, while subtly smoky eyes will fit in with the time of year beautifully.
Black velvet ribbons can be used in so many divine ways throughout your big day details, while helping to give your special day that ‘spooky yet stylish’ vibe. Tie a long, flowing ribbon around the stems of your bridal bouquet – the contrast of the black velvet against your blooms will look amazing and it helps to give your bridal look an extra dash of Halloween drama. You could also tie black velvet ribbons around your wedding stationery, place settings or even as simple chair covers.
It’s the little details that will help your Halloween-inspired wedding theme come together. From your wedding stationery to your tablescape, consider how you can add a gothic edge to your wedding day using decorations. A spooky yet stylish Halloween wedding is guaranteed to be unforgettable and it’s something your guests won’t have seen before. So, if you want a wedding day that is unique, untraditional and unbearably cool, we’ve found it for you…
