How to Create a Subtly Spooky October Wedding

Whether you're getting married in the fall and want to incorporate the season, or a halloween fanatic use Creative Ambiance Events' guide below to create a subtly spooky October wedding.

Use Dark and Rich Colors By using colors such as burgundy, cinnamon, teal, plum, and hunter green, you will bring the breathtaking colors of the season into your ceremony and reception. Dark colors can be romantic, just think of the colors of red wine, rose petals, and velvet. Mix Textures Speaking of velvet and petals, mixing textures will excite your guests’ eyes and sense of touch! Think warm and cozy like your favorite sweater by incorporating velvet. Add in a touch of delicate romance with lace, or a rustic vibe with leather!

Bring the Outside In If you don’t want to brave the chilly weather outside, you can bring the beauty of nature inside with living, or artificial twigs, branches, leaves and succulents. These fun and seasonal components will make your floral arrangements, centerpieces, and decor elements pop! For an even more chilling effect, try using dried flowers! “Till Death Do us Part” It’s right there in your vows, “‘till death we do part”. You can incorporate this theme of undying love in your ceremony by customizing signs, seating charts, menus, invitations, or even your wardrobe! The possibilities are endless as to what you can customize, but whatever you choose, our in-house lettering specialist can bring your vision to life! Blacks Can be Romantic Don’t be scared to incorporate black into your color scheme! Black is a staple color of many classic brands and events, and can add depth and dimension to your color scheme and tablescape. Black creates contrast and excites the eye, while incorporating the season in a tasteful manner. Use vintage silver or bronze Goodbye rose gold, it’s spooky season now and we want to see some vintage silver to add a hint of elegance and mystery to your wedding. If you want to take a more modern approach try using bronze metallic accents, to draw in the color of pumpkins and changing leaves to your special day.
