I wanted to be a Halloween bride, but the venue we wanted was booked for that day, so I’m a November 1 bride with an elegant Halloween theme 🙂

I’m a Halloween Bride. I didn’t want to do it, but it was the only date at my venue. Nothing from August until Sat. after Thanksgiving except for Halloween.  I’m getting used to it. Getting a little tired of the costume comments. I’m worried about attendance a bit.

I really wanted 10/10/09 or 10/31/09 to no avail.  Halloween is one of my favourite holidays!

If it were me I’d jump to 10/17. Better for anniversaries with kids. You might have more fall leaves still around depending on where you marry. I’m worried that I’ll miss the leaves with my 10/31 date.

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday.  We aren’t doing costumes or anything, but definitely having Halloween decor at the wedding.  I think it’s a really fun idea and I’ve only heard good things about it from friends and relatives.  I can’t think of a better day for me to get married on.  I got engaged on Halloween too!

I think if you’re uncomfortable with Halloween (which it seems you are) and your plans wouldn’t be terribly thrown off by changing your date, you should change to the 17th.

I personally really really wanted a Halloween wedding. I still sometimes wish I’d done it! 

Are there any negatives to using the 17th instead?

smileyface, if you’re uncomfortable with it, maybe it’s better to switch?  But how often does Halloween fall on a Saturday to be able to do the Saturday/Halloween wedding?! I looked at it as a sign for FI and I to go for it.  If it’s your favorite holiday and holds meaning for you then I say keep the date!  Otherwise, if not much will be greatly affected by switching to 10/17, then switch! It’s your big day, you should do what makes you happiest.

I am a Halloween bride.  Our favorite movie is THE CROW, and it has always been understood we would get married on Halloween.

 

He proposed on Friday the 13th =)

I am thinking about being a Halloween Bride! I love the holiday. I think you could do that. Like the others said, if you are truly uncomfortable with it, go ahead and change it!!

I’m a proud Halloween bride! We love Halloween and dress up every year, so we’re having a costume party wedding. Halloween is actually the anniversary of our first kiss as well, so it’s meaningful as well as fun–completely us!

No costume theme for us. That’s one of the only ways my parents would let us go for the Halloween date! We still want to have a mainly traditional wedding, just on a special day for us.  We’re definitely doing a Halloween-themed reception, just no costumes.
