This Calls For…A Halloween Wedding

I have been married this Halloween for two years.  Yes we did the Halloween wedding theme, yes we did the candy table etc.  I noticed that I get a lot of searches for Halloween Wedding Decoration ideas so I wanted to do this blog to show people what I did with mine and hopefully give some ideas.

First off I knew right away I did not want it to look cheesy and tacky.  You could easily go to the dollar store and pick up some cheesy stuff and just set it up.  However to make things look a little better buy some of that dollar store and put some creative flair into it.

We bought these from the dollar store and wanted to use them in our centerpieces.  So by adding some ripped pantyhose and paint we made out centerpieces.




We added some branches coming out of the top of the plastic skull, put a battery operated tea light so the skull would flicker.  Then put that all is a glass vase with stones.



















We also made personalized tombstones.  We bought insulation foam at our nearest home improvement store and then cut them into the shapes that we wanted our tombstones to be.

We then printed off what we wanted our stone to say from a Word document then stencilled into the board.  To make the wording have depth we used a wood burner to melt the board.

Once it was all carved black paint was used in the crevasses then used a combo of paint and water to make it look streaked.  To top off the look of an old tombstone we added some fake moss.


For Table Numbers we wanted something different.  We decided to use Horror Movie Titles and print them out on cardstock.  We bought some small pumpkins that had some imperfections so they were cheaper and then got knives and stabbed the cardstock into the pumpkin.


Every Halloween Wedding needs a candy table.  For ours we did a couple more tombstones to add to it, as well as little skeletons to hang out of the bowls.  We used some tiers to add some height to it and layered with fabric.  The best part was buying the candy.  We had chocolate bars, jelly bellies, rockets, candy corn etc.


For the Candy Table we had put candy bags at each table setting with a spider web on them then printed stickers with a Thank You message .

If I could go back I would not have put these at the table settings.  People went up to the candy table right away before dinner leaving other guests not having a chance on selection.  But hey you learn right.

I hope you have enjoyed some of my ideas that my hubby and I did for our wedding.  If you have any questions please feel free to shoot me of an email I would love to hear from you.

We are going to be doing some more custom decorations. I think having a Halloween themed wedding was good because it made my husband actually want to get involved in the wedding planning…haha.

Is there any way I can get a little more detailed instructions to make something similar? I feel like I understand the gist of what you did but do not want to mess it up. Any help would be great!
