If you’re getting married — or helping someone else plan a wedding — in October, you might wonder if it’s possible to bring a little Halloween-styled “magic” onto the tables. How do you fit the notion of wedding finery in with ghosts, goblins, black cats, and “things that go bump in the night”? Surprisingly, it’s not scary: think about your color scheme first, then look at some of these images. Decorations for fall weddings don’t have to be black, orange, or rust, to look smashing: take in these dazzling red backgrounds, purple and dark blue, even black-tinged, floral arrangements, and — of course — the cheeky coffin-shaped favor or black pumpkin lantern that declares, “’til death.” Red, orange, and gold flowers are stunning on painted-branch supports; for a lighter touch, pair pale pumpkin tones with white.

Have you ever considered a wedding cake shaped like a pumpkin? Have two: one “pumpkin” frosted in white for the bride, one frosted in orange — with “devil’s food” inside, of course — for the groom’s cake. Want to spell out a special message? Have calligraphy letters carved in pumpkins, then illuminate, and your words will be “in lights.” Carve “Mr.” and “Mrs.” or a silhouette of a happy couple into a light-colored pumpkin or gourd and give your guests a smile. Candy corn or other colored candies, poured into tall candleholders, can hold tapers of any size; deep purple floral displays, black-painted candelabra, and black glitter-covered table numbers can spice up even the most staid reception hall. Whatever you do, have fun with it; engage your guests’ playful sides and they’ll remember your wedding long past Halloween.
