It’s that season – when we are all plotting our decor, costumes and treats for the scariest time of the year, and if you are having a wedding, I have some bootiful Halloween wedding ideas for you today via Etsy. From favors and decor to gifts and items just for fun, I can’t wait for you to see witch things I have in store for you. Muahahahahahaha!! It does just happen to be Friday the 13th after all.
I’m going to start off with pre Halloween wedding ideas. After all, why not get the party started a bit earlier than planned if you’re going to make it as spooky as can be?
Why not give your scary wedding the goulish vibe it deserves right off the bat? This “union of souls” invitation allows your guess to know right away that they are in for a deadly good time! With bride and groom skulls and a gothic font, these are sure to impress them to death. Union of Souls Wedding Invitations, $6 each
This boo-balicoius shirt literally had me laughing for two minutes straight…and I am ordering one for myself. Too cute! Complete with cobwebs and spiders – all strategically placed – it actually comes in a variety of color combinations involving black, gray and white. Whether you wear this Halloween shirt to celebrate the fact that you’re getting married or have you and your bridesmaids all wear them to your bachelorette party, these are sure to garner attention no matter where you go! Spider Webs T-Shirt, $14
Nothing says “finale” like your wedding, and this adorable Nightmare Before Christmas unframed quote and sheet music is a perfect Halloween wedding idea! You can use it as wedding decor and then hang it in your new home to remember that you are together ’til death do us part. Nightmare Before Christmas Unframed Sheet Music, $10
Now we are on to other Halloween wedding ideas you are sure to love!
When it comes to decor, I adore the vintage vibe of these fan pinwheels. In classic Halloween colors and featuring pumpkin faces and the ever illusive black cat, these cuties can serve as wall decor or the backdrop for a photo booth. A big plus is that you can fold them up and pull them out year after year for your own Halloween decor in your new home together. Vintage Halloween Pinwheel Fans, $25 for the collection as shown
Not that your guests don’t already think you’re committed to each other, but make it scarily official with this Till Death wire cake topper. I’m also going to add that the black wedding cake is so amazingly boo-tiful! Who wouldn’t want a black as death cake with flowers to soften it? And the topper adds just the right touch for your big day. Till Death Cake Topper via Le Rustic Chic, $20
Skulls can be scary, but these little gold wall decals seem to actually be happy that you are linking yourself with another forever and ever (and ever!). They make a fun decor element to pepper throughout your reception – even in the bathrooms to give guests a fright! Skull Wall Decals, $22 for a set of 45
What’s up next in our Halloween wedding ideas?? More frightful scares for your tabletop!
Give your guests a fright thanks to these black cat place cards! [Sidebar: I have 2 black cats, and black kitties are the least adopted at shelters because of their Halloween association. But they’re not scary at all!] Write your guests’ names in a gothic font, and be ready to have your tablescape be frightfully good! Black Cat Place Cards, $41 for 100 (smaller and larger quantities available)
Be devilish and give your guests a laugh as they read their goulishly funny napkins. I mean, who could really resist this adorable ghost asking for boos? These would also be great for a bridal shower or bachelorette… or anywhere fun drinks are involved at Halloween. Ghost Napkins, $29 for 50
