Embrace the Color – Use the color pallet to pull your theme through. Greys, blacks, oranges and purples.
Embrace the cobwebs – This is a fantastic cheap way to have a Halloween themed wedding. Hand spiders from the webs or drape webs anywhere to instantly create the look and feel of Halloween.
Embrace the Sugar – Halloween is the biggest time of year for candy. So why not jump on board. Have a candy bar, caramel apples or Halloween shaped treats.
