Colors for Weddings: You can choose from a variety of shades of black, gray and white to create a spooky atmosphere. To keep the theme spooky, add orange to your wedding.

Themes: You can decorate your venue as a haunted house, graveyard or other spooky-themed thing. You can also include on your wedding invitation that costumes are strongly recommended for the reception to add some spice.

Halloween Decorations: Make your theme more frightening by using decorations that include cobwebs, skulls and lots of candles. To create a dramatic atmosphere, dim lighting can be used to set the mood. You could also use a fog machine as you walk down the aisle to add a dramatic touch of drama. Signs could be held by Skeletons to direct guests.

It is best to hold the Halloween event at night in order to get the full effect. To make the event even more creepy, bring out the Jack-O-Lanterns and place candles inside.

Centerpieces: Use natural branches without leaves and dark colored flowers to give the centerpieces a lifeless look. A coffin-shaped wooden flower vase will give the ambiance a haunting feel.
