Halloween wedding inspiration: 15 gorgeous - and spooky - wedding ideas

Planning a Halloween wedding? These beautiful DIY projects are guaranteed to give your guests a day to remember…

1. Please sign our pumpkin guest book

So simple - and so effective. Just pop one or two blackberries (they’re in season this time of year) into your champagne flutes for a burst of flavour and chicness.


  1. Bridesmaids and broomsticks

Everyone will fall under the spell of your bewitching bridesmaids if you swap their posies for decorative broomsticks.

  1. Spooky wedding cake toppers galore

The Wicked Queen doused hers with poison - but you could always skip that part and slather them with caramel instead?

  1. Light it up

Why not light the way with these gorgeous homemade candles? Get the skinny on how to create them .

  1. Enjoy the glow of the flickering candles…

This is too cute. And it could be easily adapted for a Christmas wedding theme, too!

  1. Get trigger-happy

Carve your surname into a series of pumpkins, grab a sparkler and pose for an awesome twilight photo. Love it.

  1. Drink a witch’s brew

Spooky AND romantic? We’re definitely on board with these homemade love potions; they’d make pretty decorations and, if you fill them with bubbles or liqueur, cute wedding favours, too.

  1. Shower them with sparkles

Forget the confetti; have your guests grab sparklers and create a light-up archway for your dusky autumnal nuptials.

  1. Paint the town… orange?

Totally autumnal, and totally beautiful, theme your wedding around a Halloween colour palette of oranges, reds, and yellows.

It’ll add some cheer to a grey autumn day, trust us.

  1. Look to Tim Burton

Why not steal the wedding vows from The Corpse Bride for your big day?

They’re romantic and take the union seriously - all whilst keeping a fun creepy touch.

  1. Go back to black

Deep hues of black and orange pulled together with traditional elements of white make for an elegant (and memorable) Hallowedding!

  1. Let them eat cake

Wild flowers, black ribbons and a chic white cake look absolutely stunning - and they give a nod to Dracula’s decor, too!

  1. The portraits seem to be moving…

Set up a photo booth area with empty photo frames that your guests can pose behind - it’ll look fabulous.

BONUS TIP: Run wild with that theme
