I can’t take credit for this idea, a client came to me with an idea to have a a Halloween get together with her girlfriends, and to make it a Victorian Tea Party- just more sinister and steam punk like.
As you can imagine, the details of a party like this gets me all excited. Here is some inspiration for you if you are still wanting to host a little get together for Halloween and do not know what to do…
Planning any wedding is always tons of fun and always about the details. When it comes to theme weddings, the details become even more important. Today, I am going to talk about how to have a Hallowedding without taking a turn into tackyville.
It is very common for brides who choose to have a Halloween theme wedding to ask their guests to dress up in some sort of costume and it can quickly go from having a wedding to really just having a very expensive Halloween party with “I Do’s”.
So then, what do you to if you want a Halloween theme wedding and still want to keep it classic and traditional?
Wearing that white grown you have been dreaming about since you were a little girl and pairing it with a black calla lilies is a great way to go traditional with a Halloween feel. The bride above decided to add some black feathers as well, you could also add crystals or lace.
Adding a black or orange sash to your wedding dress is also a great way to take your white wedding dress from traditional to original. I also like the idea of adding black lace to your wedding dress as well to give it that elegant yet Halloween feel.
As I said before, details are so important when it comes to any theme wedding. Here are some ideas to consider for your own Hallowchic affair.
Attaching a black ribbon or lace and pairing it with a jewel of some sort it always a great detail that will give you that “wow” factor you are looking for. Jewel ideas could be anything from, as the photo above shows, the classic skull and cross bones to a old photo of a loved one, or even a black cat or pumpkin.
No Halloween is ever complete without carving pumpkins; therefore, no Halloween theme wedding should be complete without one either. Placing them next to signs directing guests where to go is a very simply and creative way to have that halloween flair you want. You could even carve the pumpkins as a bonding moment with your flower girl, ring bearer, bridesmaids, or even your future hubby. Have fun with it. Number one rule in planning a wedding it is should always be F -U – N!
The reception is where the most detail will be needed and the most spooky fun with be had. From blood red martinis paired with jelly worms or spiders, to a wedding cake that is to die for. Me being a sweetsaholic myself, the candy bar would be my personal favorite addition to any wedding and would be more then complimenting at a Halloween theme wedding. Giving the candies fun names is just another easy way to make your wedding unique.

When one of our favorite wedding stylists asked us to be her day-of wedding coordinator, we were ecstatic! She is co-founder of one of our favorite hair and make-up company’s- Destination Stylists, and oh so creative.
If you would like inspiration for a wedding with several DIY elements created by the bride herself, look no further. The bride, Lauren, kept her own succulents for the centerpieces, made the flower girl dresses (yes, sewed them!), thought of monograms, hanging lanterns, mason jars, and lace and burlap to add unique details to each aspect of their wedding. Her bridesmaids even came over for a girls night ands created homemade peach jam to give away as favors! And they turned out delicious!
We were given all the flowers, containers, decor, and put it all together to create a cohesive whole….
One thing that is always a toss up in Colorado is the weather…and their wedding day was the first snow of the season. They took it in stride, got out their boots and stylish wrap, and headed outdoors for snowy outdoor photo ops.
Take a look for yourself, and know that with enough time and a little creativity, you can add special details yourself.
Yes, these were the dresses she made for her flower girls…
Their guestbook took the form of a jenga pieces and a quilt.
Thank you, Lauren and Joey, for allowing us to help put together the wedding you envisioned. You are such wonderful people and best of luck to your new adventure in the Midwest!
