I love a good themed celebration, and Halloween is the perfect excuse to throw a party! It’s one of my favorite holidays for that reason alone, but the coziness of the season and the gorgeous fall foliage (when it eventually comes here in the South) aren’t bad either! Even though October is primetime for weddings, still some people shy away from Halloween related weddings. However, I say go for it! With a chic color palette and just the right amount of fall decor, you can have an elegant event too!

Elegant Theme & Color Scheme

A Halloween wedding doesn’t have to be strictly orange and black or totally spooky either. You can still have your elegant wedding with a date on October 31st! (Or close.) The key to making it feel more like a wedding and not just a Halloween party is totally up to your theme and color scheme. Stick to refined details and a neutral palette. We absolutely love an all-white look! Incorporate pops of metallic gold to really play up the design and a bit of personality. 

Seasonal Touches

So what makes this different than any other fall wedding? Well, you can be a little more playful with the decor. We are dying over these DIY sequined white & gold pumpkins from Sugar & Cloth (check out their tutorial here), and they are so easy to do! Other easy Halloween touches can be the names of your signature cocktails, a death by desserts bar, spooky props for your photo booth, melted wax candles on tall candelabras, or some adult trick-or-treat favors! So if you love the holiday, but don’t want to go full haunted house on your big day, there are plenty of ways to incorporate it! 

However, if you do, we have just the inspiration for you in our Haute Halloween Color Board for a classic look and our Creepily Classy Color Board for a splash of horror red.
