25 Halloween Wedding Ideas

A Halloween wedding? Oh yes! For some couples a Halloween wedding is far from their worst nightmare and instead it’s a dream come true. Bridal websites are filled with Halloween wedding inspiration because for some brides and grooms saying “I do” surrounded by their closest family, friends, and perhaps even a few ghosts and goblins is the perfect way to celebrate their union. And while some can be a little extreme, many couples find a way to add just enough festive touches to prevent their day from looking like a scene out of a horror movie, yet still allowing it to be a true reflection of who they are. Using the photos featured on the left from our own Cyd Converse‘s lovely blog, The Sweetest Occasion, as my main source of inspiration, I’ve perused Etsy and found 25 ideas for the couple who wants to have a little spooky incorporated into their wedding day soiree. See what I found after the jump!
