Halloween Wedding Invitations Theme Ideas & Decorations

Halloween Wedding Invitations: When it comes to unique wedding themes, Hallow-weddings—as some are calling them—are not as wacky as your old-school family members might think. You have to admit: The whole “Till death do us part” bit is kind of irresistible. And Halloween wedding invitations are about as personalized as they come. Whether you’re proudly goth, passionate about old-school horror movies or just love decorating for Halloween, your choice of Halloween wedding stationery will set the stage for an event that is as unique as your love story. Choose from complete wedding suites that are custom-designed and require up to four months to receive, or buy a digital file to personalize online and text out to the guest list in an instant. Here are just a few frightful favorites to get the pumpkins rolling.

Halloween happens to be one of my favorite times of the year. Pumpkins, ghosts, gouls, and a high scary factor all play into making this annual Fall event a real treat for kids and grownups alike!

When done right, a Halloween wedding can be dark, entrancing, elegant, and super romantic. A few elements you can consider incorporating into your vision include:

  • Dark color palette
  • Textured rich fabrics
  • A moody atmosphere
  • Black lace accents
  • Caramel apples
  • Pumpkin decor
  • Trick or treat favors
  • …and candles galore!

Hosting a wedding celebration at Halloween time is a unique affair. Grandma might need more convincing, but I sure don’t! Now let’s get to the spooky Halloween wedding stationery goodness below.

Halloween Wedding Invite Ideas

Halloween weddings are not the most conventional of themes. You may have to search a little harder to set the right tone, especially when it comes to wedding stationery as Halloween themed invites can be difficult to find.  In fact, our go-to online stationer that we normally suggest (Minted), came up completely short with regards to Halloween wedding invites.

Halloween party invites on the other hand are a completely different story.

If you are stumped with where to start looking, try online shops like PurpleTrailZazzleEtsy and Invitation Consultants.

From the looks of the online Halloween wedding invites we browsed, the design style spectrum ranges from boo-tiful, dark and elegant to throwing a cheesy spooktacular event.

Depending on the soiree you envision, finding something to fit the vision is totally possible. We decided to pull a few of our favorites for a list of top freakishly awesome Hallowedding invite picks.

After all, ’till death do you part’ takes on a whole new meaning at Halloween time! 😉

For a more formal option that’s equally eerie, look towards something like this Gothic invitation suite pictured above.

What can I say about this laser cut Halloween invitation suite. For some reason it brings to mind images of Cinderella — perhaps it has something to do with the big iron gate and the pumpkins! Either way, this invite lends itself to something more formal and elegant as opposed to dark and spooky.  If you are planning on having an elegant fall wedding in a more formal space with the beautiful addition of pumpkin decor accents, this invitation could be a beautiful option.
