A Hauntingly Beautiful Wedding

Jamie Laree

We love a good theme, so when it comes to a holiday like Halloween, how could we resist! The harvest colors, the fall flavors, the prop potential, it’s a magical wedding combination just waiting to be celebrated.  And no, this definitely isn’t a kids’ kind of celebration. Grown-up glam meets gothic décor in this fall fantasy!  

Put a spell on your guests with cocktail potions for a fun twist on the classic aperitif! What could be spookier or more spectacular than using dry ice swizzle sticks to get a misty fog floating over your punch! Sangria enriched with delicious fall flavors is another traditional yet tasty choice!

Picture walking down the aisle surrounded by majestically medieval energy. Tall and tiered candelabras, velvety fabrics, and lush colors will all evoke the most romantic mood! Dark violet shades, deep rosy reds, and shimmery blacks can accent your table china, linens, and chairs.  Chandeliers and dim strung lights are another easy way to set a moody tone. When it comes to florals, go bold for sure! Thorny wooden branches can make quite an impression and work great for space fillers. For your bouquet and table arrangements, black calla lilies mixed with dark purple dahlias and a few ivory anemones will be nothing short of boo-tiful!   

A wickedly good spread should include all the seasonal tastes! Heavy on the autumnal spices, farm-to-table veggies, and apples galore! Butternut squash soup with grilled cheese bites for a warm and welcoming start, hearty entrees like braised short ribs, and of course you’ll have to end the night with something tasty! Mini pumpkin pies anyone? 

Bring the trick-or-treating to your guests with a chillingly sweet candy bar. Go full-on Halloween themed with an orange and black color scheme, or try chocolate skulls and gummy mummies to stay totally on-brand. Shimmery gold monogrammed treat bags to fill will leave your guests’ sweet tooth satisfied for days to come!

Ghoulishly gorgeous is how we’d describe the perfect bridal wedding day look! Britney is a soft tulle mermaid full of hauntingly beautiful details. Full of intricate embroidered Alençon lace appliqués with dazzling pearls and beading over a sheer bodice. The sheer appliquéd back and two-tiered petal train is just bewitching!
