It's fairly common to tie holidays in and around your wedding celebration: 4th of July weddings, for example, will often have red, white & blue accents as well as fireworks or sparklers. The same holds true this time of year, with Halloween fast approaching. Looking for some good ideas for a Halloween-themed wedding?
Here's some ideas to get you started. Fall colors would be the easiest thing to incorporate, or how about Jack-O-Lantern centerpieces? Why not get married in a pumpkin patch? Believe it or not, many pumpkin patches and cider mills host weddings, and what a great idea to incorporate hot cider, donuts, caramel apples, and pumpkin pie into the dessert menu! Have your guests pick apples (right at the dessert table) and top them off with their favorite toppings (even incorporate the traditional chocolate fountain!)

Of course, candy is another main theme surrounding Halloween...Have you seen a candy buffet at a wedding yet? It's become more popular over the past year, where an assortment of sweets are displayed, and your guests fill up individual bags to take their favorite candies home with them.
Looking to go even further? Have a costume or masquerade reception! Hey it's your wedding, click here to see a video clip of a couple in Thailand who...let's say...committed fully to the idea of a "Hallo-wedding."
