If you’re planning on celebrating your nuptials with the ghosts and ghouls on All Hallows’ Eve, there are some easy ways to avoid the whole thing turning into a fright fest. Halloween-themed weddings are about creating moodiness and playing up Gothic details. The idea that you need Jack-O-Lanterns and candy bars is just a bunch of Hocus Pocus.

Choose your theme

Yes, you’ve chosen a Halloween theme, but that can be interpreted in many different ways. One idea that’s on trend is throwing a mysterious masquerade ball. Keep things sophisticated and formal with the groomsmen wearing black suits and your ladies in rich jewel tones like Sapphire or Amethyst. Everyone gets to wear a beautiful mask, which will put everyone in the Halloween mood. Class things up with lots of antique gold details and lots of candles.

Rustic weddings are still extremely popular, so take your party to an old barn surrounded by dark forests and let the Halloween vibes flow. Think dark magic and ghost stories! Have your ceremony at dusk, accompanied by lots of candles to create moodiness that’s still unmistakably romantic.

Whatever theme you choose, the right flowers can help bring it to life!

The Flowers

Flowers can be moody while still being elegant. Think deep burgundy Dahlias, Ranunculus, blood red Roses, Spray Roses and black Calla Lilies. Accent your darker flowers with shades of cream or lighter dusty pinks for a romantic look.

Using twisty branches in your bouquet or centrepieces will add to the eerie ambience as well. Be creative with your vases too! Dusted antique gold vases, pumpkins, jars or Gothic looking skulls will add that something extra to your spooky day. Garlands of greenery and dark blooms decorate tables beautifully when accompanied with lots of candles, and save on cost too! Think Fern, Seeded Eucalyptus, and Ruscus.

Vintage elegance is a wedding trend that seems to never go out of style. Something about antique lace, soft colours and statement jewellery evokes old school romance that can’t be beat!

In 2017, and moving into the 2018 wedding season, vintage brides are loving large blooms in muted or pastel colour tones. Think Garden Roses and Peonies in dusty pink, cream and green like our Morning Joy Bridal Bouquet. Pops of rich red wine hues can work too, especially if you’re planning on incorporating velvet into your decor.

Other soft petal flowers that can help create this look are Delphinium, Cornflowers and Dahlias. And don’t forget some of the classics like Baby’s Breath, Lavender and Carnations that all bridal bouquets had back in the day because of their low price tag. Our Pure Baby’s Breath Bridal Bouquet is a perfect choice.

Combine two of this years trends by adding greenery in muted tones such as Eucalyptus and Ruscus, and voila! The perfect bouquet for any vintage vixen. Opt for a cascading bouquet for added drama and use your grandmother’s favourite brooch or tie the stems with lace to complete the look.

Once you’ve chosen your varietals, make sure to display them in a way that’s true to your theme. Look for antique vases in different shapes and sizes, easily found at flea markets or garage sales. Be creative! Tea cups, jars or old planters make perfect flower holders and can add a touch of whimsy.

Don’t stop at your bouquets and centrepieces, using flowers in a wide variety of places is back in style too. Cake toppers made of Roses and Peonies or even edible blooms are classic.

It’s simple, to add vintage flair to your wedding day, pay attention to the details. The type of flowers you choose will impact your theme and which decade you want your guests to feel transported too. Flowers can add softness or drama, romance and flair. Ask your florist to help you pick the perfect blooms and watch your vintage dreams turn into wedded bliss!
