Happy Halloween! Spooky season is upon us, and that can only mean one thing: Halloween themed weddings, of course! While it may sound unconventional, Halloween weddings can be a lot of fun, and can be done in many different ways. To learn some fun ways to celebrate Halloween on your big day at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, keep reading!
Remember Halloween parties of your childhood? Bobbing for apples, eating donuts off a string? Costume contests, treat bags, limbo competitions, and lots of spooky decorations? Why not have that same fun at your wedding? Have your guests arrive in costume. It will be a night they’ll surely remember, and with so many Halloween party ideas already out there on sites like Pinterest, it should be fun and easy to plan, too!
Another fun theme for your Halloween wedding is the dark, goth look. Have guests wear black or dark colors, decorate with dark or black decorations, and wear dark makeup. Keep the lights dim, and play emo music. Decorate with bats, skulls, and dark candles in ornate candle holders, and hang gothic candelabras from the ceilings.
Halloween wouldn’t be the same without pumpkins and colorful leaves, so it wouldn’t be a stretch to shy away from all things spooky and go for a more modest harvest theme, featuring pumpkins, dried leaves, and deep reds and russet tones.
What’s more fun on Halloween than dressing up? But not in just anything. It’s your big day - choose a theme for your guests. Let your imagination run wild: superheroes, monsters, pop culture idols, 80’s retro, or characters from your favorite fandom.
Keep in mind that if you have your Halloween themed wedding on Halloween, parents may not be able to attend because they will be taking their children trick or treating. This may inadvertently also make your wedding an adults only event, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your wishes. If you do decide to allow children, be sure your decorations aren’t too scary, and be sure to have some fun for the kids, too, such as a candy stand for favors, or trick or treating from table to table.
