Halloween isn’t just for kids! If you’re looking for a little romantic Halloween inspiration then look no further. Whether you’re still hunting for a last minute costume for you and your fiendish friend or if you’re a little alternative and in the mood for some Gothic love and alternative wedding inspiration, then have a look at this coffin of treats we have for you today.
From cute couple costumes for Halloween parties to wedding inspiration and haunted honeymoon destinations, we want to show our favourite inspirations for this time of year.
Be afraid… be very afraid.
If you want to incorporate a little Halloween fun into your wedding decor it doesn’t have to be all blood and gore. I think a Gothic theme or black and red colour scheme would look incredible for this time of year. A dark, chocolate cake instead of a traditional white cake or a bouquet of dark purple calla lilies would set the tone perfectly.
As with any wedding, it’s always the little details that make the biggest statement. Spooky escort cards or some cute skull socks for the groom will add a little ghoulish fun to any event.
A corpse bride theme, would be so much fun for a wedding at this time of year. An eery twist can easily be incorporated into your invitations, save-the-date cards, table centrepieces and even your wedding favours. It’s all about being creative and having fun.
If a haunted honeymoon destination is more your thing then a visit to one of these spooky hotels will definitely get your heart racing…
The Witchery in Edinburgh isn’t haunted as such, but its haunting name and its wonderful Gothic interior is the perfect place to get your honeymoon started. With its grand four poster beds and great location right by Edinburgh castle it’s the perfect spot for a little romance.
If you prefer something a little further afield, The Hotel Chelsea in New York claims to be one of the most haunted hotels in the city. Dylan Thomas fell into his fatal coma at this hotel and The Sex Pistol’s Sid Vicious stabbed his girlfriend to death in one of the rooms. The ghosts of both of these apparently roam the halls at night!
If you want to take spooky destinations to another level then a trip to Mexico is in order. While the rest of the world is celebrating Halloween, in Mexico they celebrate the day of the dead. Coinciding with all saints and all souls day on the 1st and 2nd of November, the whole of the country comes together to celebrate their loved ones that have passed away. This huge celebration of life and death involves visits to the cemetery, parades, festivals and lots of fancy dress!
Finally, I couldn’t end a blog about Halloween without showing you my favourite spooky couples costumes. Corpse bride, Day of the Dead and Tim Burton’s Nightmare before Christmas.
No tricks here, just treats.
