Stylish Halloween Wedding Ideas

1. Antique Dress  DetailsWhen it comes to your wedding dress, try touches of color and antique embellishments — a dark-hued sash cinched at the waist with an embellished brooch would look chic. Try a black-net birdcage wedding veil, a pair of to-the-wrist gloves, or antique jewelry for even more flair.

2. Victorian UpdosCapture a hairstyle from a bygone era with a slightly mussed victorian style wedding updo. Rather wear your hair down? Have your stylist create a loose half-up style with long, flowing curls pulled back with an antique bejeweled hairpin.

3. Dramatic MakeupKeep your makeup sophisticated with a slightly darker eyeliner or lipstick color. Consider deep plum eyeliner and shadow, or a rich raspberry color for your lips. Tip: To avoid going overboard, choose just one area (eyes or lips) to highlight.

4. Luxe Bridesmaid Dresses
Outfit your maids in rich, deep hues like dark purple, black, or navy. Capelets, crocheted shawls, cameo chokers, or sheer scarves will add just the right hint of enigma to their look.

5. Funky formal wear
For a formal wedding, have your guys don tails or even swallowtail coats (undertaker-style). For more Halloween fun, give them stripe black-and-white or red-and-black socks to wear for the day.

6. All-Black Reception Decor
Use rich, black linens in heavy velvet or pintucked fabrics for the tables. Have black chiavari chairs padded with black seat cushions. Silver chargers and ornate silver goblets along with antique candelabras and black or ivory candles will add to the ambience.

7. Bold Arrangements
For centerpieces, think Black Magic roses, deep red calla lilies, black feathers, branchy accents, and tons of votives. If space allows, consider hanging antique chandeliers over the dance floor and throughout the room and attaching black feather wreaths to the windows or doors.

8. Costume Photo Backdrop
Instead of a photo booth, enlist a friend to take pictures of your guests on a spooky photo set at your reception. Use a velvety curtain for the backdrop and, if resources allow, deck out the set with old furniture and fake spider webs. Include easy-to-wear props for your guests like hats, gloves, and boas.

9. Red Velvet Cake
When it comes to your cake, focus on the flavor by requesting red velvet. Have it frosted with decadent cream cheese frosting decorated with black ribbon bands to coordinate with the rest of your wedding day details.

Vintage simply means something being old-fashioned, classical, or from another time. Of course, it also means the year a wine's grapes were harvested but in terms of a vintage wedding, a vintage theme encapsulates "from another time". This could be the 1980s (if you're that way inclined) or perhaps Victorian times or the 1920s. Whatever tickles your fancy really.
Choose your favourite era from the past and incorporate any aspects of that era into any part of your wedding. It could be something as simple as wearing your mother's or grandmother's wedding dress, or perhaps using material from an old wedding dress in your newly designed and created designer wedding dress. The bridesmaids could be dressed in a style from the era you've chosen and both yourself and your bridesmaids could wear jewellery and accessories from that era.

A Victorian vintage wedding could incorporate a lot of lace, pearls, gloves and brooches. A 1920's vintage wedding could showcase gorgeous birdcage veils, pillbox hats and headpieces that were popular with the ladies back in the day. A 1950's vintage wedding would be great fun with big full skirts and Mary Jane patent leather shoes (with heels of course). Music and entertainment recreated from the era would give your older guests a feeling of nostalgia and your younger guests a taste of something a bit different.

Vintage Wedding Decorations

The decorations are where your vintage wedding will come to life. A mixture of new and old items will be easier to obtain, rather than all old or all new. New items can still fit in with your vintage wedding, as long as they represent your choosen era. For old items you could raid your parent's or grandparent's belongings as there are bound to be some little treasures you could use to decorate your reception venue. Also visit second hand or antique stores for more elusive pieces that you simply must have to add the finishing touches to your vintage wedding.

Some things you can use in decor to bring the theme are as follow

Candelabras with antique carving & crystals
Lace table overlays.
Gold & ivory colors
Lamp centerpieces
Crystal chandliers
Crystal broach on chair covers .
