Halloween, it comes once a year every October 31st. It is a day of trick or treating, costume parties, haunted attractions, and sometimes even a day for a wedding. So the question proposed is how to have an elegant wedding with the fun of Halloween mixed in? Simple, read further Clevelanders on how to have a classy and spooktacular wedding all in one.
Cleveland brides, we love to wear costumes on Halloween, but going all out for the holiday is not suggested. Guests may say you’re not taking the wedding seriously and while you want your day to be memorable, to you and your groom, there are ways of achieving the perfect style.
For starters, have your bridesmaids in dark colored dresses. Typically, deep purple and black are perfect colors. Have them wear black, laced wrist gloves, with choker necklaces and sheer shawls to complete the mysterious look.
Brides should think about shopping for antique dresses. There are many consignment shops in the greater Cleveland area that have once used gowns that date back to the 1920’s. The 1920’s gowns are a thing of detailed beauty and perfect for a Halloween inspired wedding. Also, it is a great idea if one needs to stick to a budget or wants to spend quite a bit of money on bold arrangements such as black magic roses and uniquely carved pumpkins, because consignment shop wedding gowns are inexpensive.
Also consider touches of color, a black or red velvet sash cinched at waist of gown or antique embellishments. A pair of lace wrist gloves is a cute addition to the antique gown, depending on the style of course.
Consider a birdcage veil to complete the antique look and antique jewelry for a stylish compliment. Think about Victorian style up-dos with antique jeweled hair accessories or even baby’s breath flowers scattered into the up-do.
While traditionally, classic and elegant makeup is preferred, dramatic makeup is welcome for a Halloween wedding. Go all out, just do not use pale white foundation and fake blood smeared on your face if wanting to keep sophistication at your wedding. Use dark black eyeliner and dark colored eye shadows with a red lipstick.
There are many ways to go about a stylish Halloween wedding without creeping out your guests or having them question your sincerity of the day. Cleveland brides can find many ideas around Cleveland to inspire their wedding look from old mansions to Halloween decorations. The fashion for a Halloween wedding in general, cannot go out of style. So have fun and let your inner child cooperate with your adult self when planning such a howling event.
