How to create to a classy Halloween wedding

Forget fearsome frights and ghastly ghosts, SoGlosWeddings has all the ideas for creating a classy Halloween wedding this autumn.

From pumpkin lanterns and autumnal florals to cosy celebrations and chic settings for your table, hosting a Halloween wedding doesn’t have to be tacky.

Fuse together glorious autumn colours with chic and stylish touches to create the ultimate Halloween celebration. Here, SoGlosWeddings unveils all the elements to creating the look.


Orange accents


Dress your leading ladies in a gorgeous autumnal shade of orange or red. Capturing the theme from the start, the dresses will look great in your photographs and will also be a great warm tone to wear.


Cosy candles


There’s no such thing as too many candles when it comes to a Halloween ceremony. Adorn the aisles with tea lights, lead up stairways with lanterns and create a cosy atmosphere as daylight begins to fade.

Sure to go down a treat, give your guests a sweet treat with an apple dipping station at your reception. Take a twist on traditional toffee apples and add a range of toppings for some foodie fun.


Cellar celebrations

With the nights drawing in, autumn is a great time to cosy up inside. Keep your Halloween theme flowing with a cosy cellar celebration, at a setting just like The Kings Head Hotel in Cirencester.


Perfect pumpkins


Create a Spooktacular centre piece for your wedding breakfast tables with a collection of different sized pumpkins. Doubling up as some ghoulishly-good lanterns, get creative and carve your new initials into larger pumpkins for the entrance of your venue.


Sensational sparklers


Light up the night with a dazzling display of sparklers outside. Also great as a wedding favour for your guests, sparklers are bound to be a hit with kids too!


Floral frenzy


Keep the colour theme going with a gorgeous floral headband. Incorporate tones of orange, red and greens or have floral crowns made for your bridesmaids instead.


Spooky spectacles


Spooky doesn’t have to mean skeletons and skulls, instead cover your tables with rich dark fabrics, candles and shades of purples and keep the theme decadent rather than deadly.


Themed food

From fun-themed desserts to rich autumnal foodie delights, your Halloween theme doesn’t have to stop at your wedding breakfast. Treat your guests to an indulgent offering of creamy cheese fondues, decadent dishes and even classy cocktails with a smoking fog.
