A Unique and Stylish Halloween Wedding Inspiration Board {from the archives}

One of my post popular Halloween Wedding posts is this inspiration board which features 9 fun, unique and stylish things to incorporate into a Halloween Themed Wedding. An excerpt from the original post:

Simply start with black and white as the base color palette and then you can add punches of color - purple, orange and even bright green are all great choices for Halloween. How perfect is the downloadable "Dim the Lights and Keep Moving" poster for a wedding reception? I also love the idea of a more intimate wedding where you would marry in-front of a decorated mantle or an antique piano, like the one shown below.

1. Painted and glittered pumpkins {faux or real} in silver & black are the perfect decor accent
2. Happy Halloween banner {downloadable}
3. Paper flower wreaths are great for decor or on the entrance way to event
4. "join us . . . if you dare" Halloween Party Invitation
5. Can never go wrong with feathers {like a feather bouquet}, photo by Jessica Frey Photography
6. Black potted trees are great for centerpieces
7. Typographical Halloween Poster to set the mood, like this "Dim the Lights and Keep Moving" poster {downloadable}
8. Black and White Place Setting with DIY black-and-white cloth napkins
9. Black candy buffet with elegant yet eerie labels, ex. Twisted Treats, Witch's Sticks {downloadable labels}

A Round-Up of Halloween Inspiration {from past years}

Happy Halloween! To celebrate today, I thought I would do a little round-up of my Halloween ideas and inspiration from years past. Hope everyone has a wonderful day in whatever they plan to do. I'm now off to get my daughter ready for school as a 50's girl and then I'll be getting her 13 month old sister ready to join her on the side lines of the school parade as her little pink poodle. Her 50's outfit with the poodle skirt was the costume I wore when I was her age as a majorette {baton twirler}. It's so cute to see her in something I wore, my mom kept all my costumes in AMAZING shape.

A Purple and Orange Fall Wedding with Dancing Pumpkins

The fall wedding of Nicole and Jason is so perfect to share with you today on Halloween. Not only does it feature purple and orange which are great colors for the day - but there's even dancing pumpkins. During the wedding the groom's cousin told a story about when her sister married a few years earlier she had wanted to have pumpkins on the table. Her mother had told her she wasn't spending that much money for a Halloween party so the pumpkin idea couldn't be used. As a surprise, Jason and his cousins got together and came out in pumpkin suits and started dancing. Jason's cousin decided to bring the pumpkins to his wedding with Nicole too. When they came out, The Monster Mash started. The gorgeous photography is by Shannon Lee Images.
