This Week’s Favourite Finds – Chic Black & Gold Halloween Ideas

A Halloween wedding doesn’t have to be all carved pumpkins and ghoulish décor. If you’re tying the knot at this magical time of year, you can still keep things elegant while having a bit of fun. First up, create a cosy and slightly eerie atmosphere with your lighting. Collect tea light holders in the likes of Penneys and have lots of candles to create an intimate and slightly spooky atmosphere, light up lights will also look fun in the dark! If you’re looking to decorate on the cheap, old wine bottles with candles are perfect for creating that gorgeous Gothic vibe.

Black is always a popular dress colour come autumn and winter. Chic and flattering, it will tie in nicely with a Halloween wedding and the bridesmaids get to bag a dress they’ll definitely wear again – win win! Coast have some amazing numbers in at the moment – take a peek here. You can also pick up budget-friendly black frames in the likes of Penneys if you’re looking for some cheap and chic homes for your table numbers.

Halloween is all about the costumes so have some fun with a photo booth – stock it with lots of cool Halloween-esque masks like this cute cat one from Penneys or just have some random masks and props on each table for guests to have some fun with. Halloween and sweets also go hand in hand so let guests relive their childhood trick or treating with a Halloween style candy buffet. You can pick up stripy gold or silver paper bags in the weddingsonline shop and let guests tuck in to old school treats like Liquorice Allsorts. Finally, finish the night off with some seasonal sparklers – guests will love twirling them around and around and of course you’ll get some magical snaps for the wedding album too!
