A Halloween themed wedding can be quite a fun and unique wedding adventure, so today your let’s look into some great ideas and inspiration to get you excited for your Halloween wedding. Before you get started, keep in mind that a Halloween wedding doesn’t always have to be a literal theme.
Although we will be exploring some great and “spooky” ideas, your Halloween wedding can be more of a abstract Halloween visions by using colours (i.e. orange), food (i.e. pumpkin squash soup), and an appropriate venue location (i.e. gothic castle). This will give you the general feel of a Halloween wedding without a literal concept.
Now let’s get creative and explore ideas for a Halloween Wedding.
Signature cocktails are a great way to add that personal and unique touch to your wedding. So when considering a Halloween themed wedding, add a Halloween cocktail to your drink list. Get creative with the colours like “The Great Pumpkin” or go all out with the look like in the “Brain Haemorrhage”. You can always check your local liquor store like LCBO.ca which can give you great ideas for a signature drink. Since most great cocktails include ice try adding a shaped cubes using shaped ice trays like this pumpkin shaped ice tray from Amazon.
Having a bridal shower, bachelor(ette), or a very small wedding? Get those DIY hands out of retirement and make some deliciously spooky inspired cake pops. 365 Days of Cakepops is giving you step by step instructions on how to make cakepops with a Halloween twist.

It’s always great to incorporate eco-friendly ideas into your wedding or pre-wedding parties (even better to do it for both).

And of course to add that finishing touch to your wedding reception have your guests get involved by letting them dress up as their favourite character. You can even keep it elegant by getting more specific by having a princess and princes Halloween theme thus allowing your guests to stay formal. Whatever choices you make have lots of fun with it.
