Elegant Black & Gold Wedding Inspiration for Halloween

We’re getting into the Halloween feel with today’s spooky-but-chic black and gold palette inspired by all the usual going’s on on the 31st of October. When one thinks ‘Halloween themed wedding’, one may instantly cringe at the idea of a barrage of badly carved orange pumpkins and apple-bobbing entertainment, but the holiday isn’t just for the Tim Burton enthusiasts (which, of course, there is nothing wrong with either) – Halloween is accessible for even the most traditionally discernible of brides and grooms.

Check out our autumn berry-inspired Halloween moodboard!

Want your pumpkins to look less Child’s Play and more Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Put down that scalpel and pick up that spray can. We love the idea of gold and glittered pumpkins scattered around the reception to bring a little spook to proceedings. Check out this great post by Sunnies & Stilettos on how to DIY gold and glitter pumpkins on the cheap!

Another distinctly Halloween-y idea to add to your big day is sparklers. Who can hold back a smile with one of these exciting little shiny sticks of energy in their hand? PLUS you can get some magical sparkler lit wedding photos for your album while you’re playing with them!
