Halloween Wedding Theme Favors
Not everyone elects to have
a traditional wedding. Some love the fun and excitement of Halloween
and want to share their favorite holiday with others with a marriage
ceremony. Just like those "trick or treaters" that arrive at your
door, your wedding guests also deserve a special treat. Here are
9 ideas for wedding favors that you can present to your guests
when celebrating your Halloween themed wedding.
Trick or Treat Bags
Since it's Halloween, fill
small paper trick or treat bags with the orange foil covered chocolate
pumpkins and other candies.
You can purchase some very
interesting molded Halloween candles in a variety of shapes and
sizes (like pumpkins, ghosts, haunted houses, etc.). Wrap up in
orange tulle and tie with black curly ribbon.
Cauldron of Pumpkins
Fill small, black plastic
cauldrons with orange foil-wrapped chocolate pumpkins.
If you're on the crafty
side, make candy filled pumpkin jars. First, you'll need to collect
some baby food jars. Paint pumpkins around the glass with craft
paint. Cover the top with orange felt and glue two felt leaves
to the top. Add a small piece of dowel, painted light brown, for
a stem. Fill the jar with candies.
Orange Net Favors
Cut 6" circles of tulle
in orange and black colors. Place either candies or a small votive
candle in each circle. Gather and tie off with the opposite color
of ribbon. (Orange ribbon, black tulle and black ribbon, orange
Buy 1" diameter dowels and cut into 12" lengths. Paint dowels a deep purple. Apply gold stickers in shapes of stars, moon and sun. Seal with acrylic sealer. Add gold and purple streamers tied to one end. Attach a favor tag with your names and wedding date that says: "The power of our love creates a magical world. Thank you for joining us in this mystical night."
Buy small straw brooms (available
in craft stores). Wrap black and orange ribbon down the handle
and tie a black bow just above the broom. Add some autumn colored
silk leaves and dried flowers tucked in and glued around the bow.
Purchases small jars of
pumpkin butter. It's like pumpkin pie in a jar and it's great
on biscuits and crackers.
Miniature Pumpkin Pies
Check with a local baker
to see if you could have miniature pumpkin pies made. Wrap in
cellophane and tie with orange/black ribbons. Simple, unique and

Halloween this year will mark my fourth anniversary. When I broke the news to my parents about getting married on Halloween, they weren’t thrilled. Over time, however, they learned about the growing trend and they grew to like the idea. My husband and I have always been the type to do things in our own way, and our wedding would be no different.
As the bride, I dressed as an angel. I wore a princess-style cream colored dress complete with a high neck and long, flowing sleeves and black and orange ribbons tied to my sides. I also wore large white angel wings. My groom wore dark clothes and large bat wings. The bridesmaids wore butterfly wings with matching dresses while the groomsmen wore matching orange shirts.
I made my bouquet myself using a black plastic jack o’ lantern, like the type used by children for trick or treating. I filled it with autumn leaves and flowers, including my favorite, the Calla Lilly.
We asked our guests to dress in costume and boy were they creative! My brother-in-law and his son dressed as my husband and I! There were witches and goblins, as well as superheroes and movie stars. For us it was a great way to get everyone involved in our special day.
We went with classic Halloween-style decorations, complete with a giant spider on the ceiling, and cobwebs draped everywhere. Our cake displayed a graveyard scene (complete with Jack and Sally from the Disney classic A Nightmare Before Christmas), and we had skeleton goblets for the traditional wedding toast.
We had a table set up to greet our guests with photos of my husband and I in frames with skulls. Our wedding book contained the same theme, as did our wedding favors.
The ceremony itself was pretty quick, as far as weddings go. We wrote our own vows and kept our rings in a musical jewelry box on a table near us. When the time came for us to present our rings to one another, we opened the jewelry box together. It played “What’s This?” from the same Disney film mentioned above. It was such a fairytale moment that we couldn’t help but smile as the people watching gasped in joy.
For music, we chose traditional Halloween songs as well as some of our favorite horror and gothic-themed songs. Our reception was more of an informal party with friends and family.
The most important thing for us was to make our special day fun for everyone involved, including us. It was not a particularly stressful event for us and we did everything our own way. It was definitely a memorable event for everyone who was there, and I know we’ll all remember it fondly.
