When most people think of Halloween, what comes to mind is one or more of the following: a spooky costume, ‘scream’ masks, blood, horror films, murder,  – or on the milder side – trick-or-treating for kids, bonfires, or carving pumpkins.

A wedding is probably the last thing to cross your mind when you think of October 31st. But if you’re having an October wedding and aren’t settled on a theme, but want to try something a little bit different, then incorporating some of the Halloween decor ideas into your wedding may be just the thing to add that little bit of a twist to your celebrations.

Not sure where to start? Take a look at a few of these sweet ideas
